MEGAN MCARDLE ON HEALTHCARE AND ABORTION: “As the Senate moves to debate the Senate health care bill, we’re seeing another stream of opinion pieces that fall into the broad category of ‘Oh my God! Who would have thought that a government run health care plan would make coverage decisions based on political considerations?'”
Where the government’s involved, it’s all political. Which is why feminists shouldn’t back government healthcare, when (1) public sentiment is becoming less pro-choice; and (2) on healthcare, women are already taking more than their share.
