Suggested Sunday reading: Blog for Choice Day

The fifth annual Blog for Choice Day was Friday, where bloggers were to answer the question "What does 'Trust Women' mean to you?" There was so many great things to read it was easy to miss them. Not that I can list them all here, but I have a few links and related stories.

First of all, all the blogs that participated can be found here (mine is here). I've been making my way through some, and the range of blogs is fantastic.

Secondly, check out RH Reality Check's "Roundup: Women's Status in 2010 at the Ballot Box," which discusses NARAL'S report "Who Decides? The Status of Women's Reproductive Rights in the United States." NARAL has a map that allows you to click on your state to see what's going on there with reproductive rights. Mine, Ohio, gets an "F." Figures.

Third, this is a great read from Women's Media Center: They interviewed Sarah Weddington, the attorney who represented Jane Roe in Roe v. Wade. Among many other things she says is this: "If you cannot determine the number and spacing of your children, then you cannot control any of the other parts of your life. The circumstances under which you decide to carry a pregnancy to term should be up to you."

Fourth, on Daily Kos: Louise Melling of the ACLU writes "Reflections on a Decade of Reproductive Freedom," looking back at significant moments, good and bad.

Fifth, on Womenstake: "The Onion’s Abortion Satire Brings Tears to The Eyes."

Any other recommendations out there? Leave links in the comments.
