OK, that one was from The Onion. But you weren’t sure till I said so, were you? Such is the state of reproductive politics in the US.

    There is a fascinating discussion at ICCI by Pascal Boyer and others on why people would do things like this. Why do members of societies (mainly men) so vigorously try to control women’s reproduction, by forcing them to undergo unnecessary medical procedures prior to abortion? Why do they lash out at female members of their society who are dressed “immodestly” (e.g., bare arms) even if they are only 8 years old?
