Monday link dump

Mondays (and Wednesdays) will be somewhat hellish this semester -- eight hours of class, broken up with just two one-hour breaks -- so here's some reading to keep you people with real jobs occupied.

Ampersand provides some statistics and very basic economic analysis of some anti-choice arguments.
Part of Blogging for Choice, a personal account of one woman's experience with abortion.
And another, a bit more upbeat:

We were just four women who believed that what we were doing was the right thing and it was nothing to be ashamed of. The room wasn't filled with the scent of vigiliant martyrdom, of people hell bent on making a political statement about feminism and women's rights. It was a room that smelled of women who just were: this is what we do. We choose to give birth or not and we talk about our underwear, doable men, whether we like our jobs, the latest forms of birth control, the weather, and if the ex was every really any good in bed and why did we put up with it for so long.

Jedmunds doesn't think much of Kos' book, or valueless 'progressive' movements in general.
And, last but certainly not least, part two of Echidne's wage gap series.
