BODY POLITICS. The July/August print issue of the Prospect has a three-article package on abortion politics that is now available online, and worth a look. Helena Silverstein and Wayne Fishman assess the Supreme Court's swing voter on abortion, Anthony Kennedy, while Allison Stevens reports on a crucial shortcoming in the choice movement's strategy. Finally, Scott Lemieux of Lawyers, Guns, and Money fame does us all the service of delivering -- at long last -- a comprehensive riposte to the scores of contrarian arguments proffered by "pro-choicers" about how women and Democrats might be better off if Roe was overturned. Lemieux makes the definitive counter-counter-intuitive anti-anti-Roe case here, and it's well worth a read.
