Happy 35th Anniversary, Roe v. Wade

Today, the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, has become Blog for Choice Day. Some poignant blogging going on around the blogosphere. Thought I'd share a few of the posts that have most caught my eye:

Gloria Feldt at Huffington Post, "I Am Roe"
Courtney Martin at Huffington Post, "Admitting the Complexities of Abortion"
Erica Jong at Huffington Post, "If Men Could Get Pregnant, Abortion Would Be a Sacrament"
Jill Filipovic, "10 Reasons to Support Reproductive Justice on Roe Day"
Frances Kissling and Kate Michelman at The Nation, "Long Roe to Hoe"
Susie Bright at Susie Bright's Journal, "Anatomy of a Smushmortion"


The Guttmacher Institute's newly released report finds that the U.S. abortion rate is the lowest it has been in more than three decades. Commentary by Tracy Clark-Flory at Broadsheet, here.

Salon asked a number of feminists to talk about the court case that changed their lives, and why it matters more than ever. Read their responses here.

And the ever-wonderful Feministing will be blogging reproductive justice all day long.

But of course, Susie! You're, like, a hero, and I love your blog.

This is disgusting you are celebrating the fact that you have the legal right to end life. Abortion is never a good thing nor should it be celebrated, whether you are pro-murder or pro-life.

What's "disgusting" is the lack of understanding the comment above reveals about the importance of a woman's freedom to choose.

You should not celebrate a DISGUSTING decision. A "choice" to end a life is not something to celebrate. Please read my article on this on my website fatwhiteamerican.com you will find it on the blog page.
