Vote Pro-Reproductive Justice January 22, 2008

Filed under: reproductive rights — Jender @ 8:14 pm

Blog for Choice DayFeminist philosopher Laurie Shrage has posted an online version of a 35th anniversary lecture on Roe. It’s well worth checking out. One thing that’s very important about it is that she makes it very clear that one can be staunchly in favour of reproductive justice (she gives good reasons for preferring this formulation to ‘pro-choice’) without being an enormous fan of the details of the Roe V Wade decision. Her work is extremely thought-provoking, and I highly recommend it.  Even if you don’t end up agreeing, you will have been given much to think about.  There are many ways to vote, and be, in favour of reproductive rights.  And it’s worth thinking very hard about how best to accomplish the goal.
