"PRO-WOMAN," ANTI-CHOICE. If you read the October issue of the Prospect, then much of this week's New York Times Magazine cover story wasn't news to you. Like Sarah Blustain and Reva Siegel did months ago, writer Emily Bazelon explores the anti-abortion movement's move toward an "abortion hurts women" rather than an "abortion kills babies" argument. The piece is still worth a read, as Bazelon goes into greater detail about the invention of "post-abortion syndrome," (which, by the way, research shows does not exist), and has some fascinating details about the anti-abortion activists who "minister" to women.
Plus, on TAP Online today, we've got a breakdown of recently introduced "pro-woman" abortion-ban legislation in Georgia.
