Saddled with wombs

Echidne once again captures my thoughts on John Roberts with grace and poise:
"This comes from the National Women's Law Center, and you can find out what to do about John Roberts by clicking on their action page.

The current progressive/liberal near-consensus on Roberts seems to be that he is as good a candidate as we can expect from Attila the Hun, and that with the exception of abortion (which he will help to outlaw) he is actually quite a charming man. Naturally only some of us can view the question in this 'cool and detached' way, but then some of us are lumbered with uteri and so on. Sigh. I haven't slept enough.

This is a summary of Roberts's views on those of use saddled with wombs..."

She goes on to list four major problems with Roberts that seem to have been relegated to the "loony ladies" bin once again. When will women's civil rights actually become part of the larger progressive action agenda, and not just a campaign stop? Anyone else sick to death of the "rah-rah for choice-n-chicks when it's convenient" schtick? (Echidne of the Snakes)
