Weekly Reader

I didn't post a reader last week so there's a lot to catch up on. Let's jump right in!

Here's the low down on Motion 312:

Joyce Arthur on the science and art of defeating M312

The three stooges of the patriarchy

CUPE's statement against M312

Marlo Campbell's body is not up for debate

Great background and coverage of the debate by Andrea Gunn

...And further coverage and opinion from RH Reality Check, Macleans, and Feminists for Choice

And post-M312 news includes:

A lot of buzz in the media about the "youthful rebranding" of the Canadian anti-abortion movement

A history of the legal battles of Dr. Morgentaler

And of course Thursday was March for Life day, so here's some coverage from:

The National Post (of course)
The CBC (who also covered the PEI March for Life)
The Globe and Mail

....a perfect opportunity to vent their frustrations at Woodworth's being crushed in the debate.

And a great opinion piece in the Chronicle Herald about being grateful for abortion access.

Feel free to share what you've been reading in comments.

Brief Update

I have been so remiss in my blogging! If you would like to read some things I've been writing, you can check out my latest book review at Smoke City Stories, this piece I wrote on Motion 312, and a little something I wrote about 30 Rock that was originally posted at Abortion Gang and has just been cross-posted at Bitch Flicks.

I'm sorry I don't have the time to spend here at ACiAA right now; May is turning into a very busy month for me! I am out of town for the next three weekends, and as you may or may not know, I am in the midst of planning my wedding which can sometimes be something of a garbage nightmare. Anyway, excuses, excuses. I promise there will be a huge round-up on Sunday of the stuff I am unable to write about in depth, and I will be back on here as soon as I am able.

Also if you like shark movies you should follow me on Pinterest.
