I personally think that feminism has been seriously derailed by the choice issue (and, frankly that they have been baited into being derailed by the religious right--NARAL and Planned Parenthood and everyone else couldn't just stand aside and let the anti-abortionists keep at it with their awful rhetoric). The real issues affecting women in this country have to do with equal pay for equal work, family and medical leave acts, affordable child care and so on and so on. Thanks for a great rant (!), full of terrific thought provoking insights. Blog on!
