From the blog today: http://www.scarleteen.com/blog/heather/2009/06/09/how_to_un_pack_for_a_real_discussion_about_abortion

There's a lot there, so it took me a little while to pull it all together, and to be sure I was being as clear with my language as possible.

But if you want to take a look at it, and ask any questions, or then go ahead and try and talk about some issues around abortion often clouded by misleading language or myths, this is a good place to do it.

Well, most antichoice organizations are headed by men and always have been.

And I'd personally say, working in and around reproductive choice activism for many years, that more times than not, when it comes to gender profile stuff, antichoice protestors are overwhelmingly male, women well past reproductive age or older married couples.

In other words, most often people who are very different from the profile of women who currently deal with pregnancy at all and/or who have or consider abortions.
