UPDATE: It seems I can be clear as mud some times. Please know if you are new to this blog that I am a flaming Liberal Army Wife and Feminist. I just found it ironic that Christine Overall would defend abortion but attack surrogacy. Your body, your choices!
As mothers we face so many issues from the feminist side to the Mommy wars. As women we tend to judge ourselves and society is specially hard on us so we internalize the judgement. It seems we can not escape someone trying to put guilt on us, guilt that as little girls was not there till someone put it there. If we have more than 1 or 2 children these days we are called selfish. Since when is motherhood selfish?
I woke up this morning and being the Geek woman that I am I rolled over to check my e-mail. The house was quiet, the children sleeping. I could embrace the nerd goddess within me for a bit. The happy moment though turn quickly into me becoming not a goddess so much as mother bear seeing nothing but red. Why you might wonder? A friend had sent me something she wanted my opinion on, and so here is my opinion for the world, or at least my readers, to see.
Think Before You Breed By Christine Overall is just another guilt trip on women.
Defending Reproductive Choices
Policing Motives Of Uterine Use
It gets worse!
Pro-Choice is Ok but not 3 children
(I had made a mistake and written in haste that I am pro-life when I meant to share that I am pro-choice though I do not think I would ever make such a choice but rather would let nature do with a pregnancy as it would without interference. Sorry for the confusion.)
