34 years ago, I got knocked up at the young age of 15. Roe v. Wade had only been decided several months earlier. I was clueless about what was going on in the world. I thank my lucky stars that I was able to safely terminate that pregnancy and I’ve never regretted it for a second. It would have been nice if my parents or my public education had given me the relevant reproductive information that could have saved me from getting pregnant in the first place but…they didn’t. Thank you Sarah Weddington.
Scott Horton Scott Horton’s No Comment blog on Harpers.org consistently blows me away. An attorney and human right’s advocate, Scott writes about an amazing array of subjects. Right now, if you navigate to the site, there are posts up about Bertold Brecht, how a federal court has declared inmates at Guantanamo not to be “persons”, on ending the culture of immunity for contractors and an insightful overview of what has happened and what will happen in the unfolding scandal over the destruction of the CIA torture tapes. Just read him is all I’m saying.
