Interested in having sex Feel like your sex life is none of the government s damn business Believe that other people s beliefs have a constitutional obligation to stay out of our legislative tradition This is a book for you There is a real war on birth control access in this country and thinking people who live here should be outraged I am.

Cristina Page s 2006 expos of the religious right pro life movement s true agenda sounds like liberal hyperbole, chances are that Page wrote this book just for you While the pro life movement professes to respect all life, to the point of holding it sacred, the movement s actions belie this all too common assumption Since the days of Roe v Wade, pro lifers have been hammering away at women s and men s reproductive rights In addition to abortion whether it occurs before the fertilized egg implants in the womb, the point at which those in the medical field consider that a pregnancy has begun, or in the later stages of pregnancy, which is very rare and usually done in order to save the mother s life , the pro life movement opposes contraception, and not just Plan B which is not an abortifacient, but rather a high dose of The Pill Whether the method is hormonal The Pill, the patch, Plan B, NuvaRing, etc or barrier the condom, the sponge, the cervical cap, the diaphragm, spermicide , pro lifers oppose it The only contraceptive method explicitly endorsed by pro life groups, in fact, is one with dubious efficacy natural family planning, also called the rhythm method The pro life groups anti contraceptive stances which oftentimes translate into political lobbying and policymaking expose the pro life movement for what it really is, namely, anti sex and anti woman Sex is a natural and healthy part of adult life, Page argues, as is the ability to prevent unwanted pregnancies, i.e., contraception Absent contraception, women are faced with a tough choice undergo abortion after abortion birthchildren than they want and can reasonably care for or forgo sex unless the sole intent is procreation whether married or not It s these latter two options that the pro life movement wishes to force on women and not just those living in the U.S Meanwhile, the former two scenarios represent the reality for many women research shows that abstinence education simply doesn t work Women and men will continue to engage in sex, and when contraception isn t readily available and affordable, unwanted pregnancies and abortion will result The single best way to prevent abortion, then, is to prevent unwanted and unintended pregnancies and yet, the pro life movement crusades against strategies that will do just this, including comprehensive sex ed and contraception Like I said, Pro life More like anti sex, anti woman and anti human Armed with a volume of research and statistics, Page demonstrates just how at odds the pro life movement s views are with those of mainstream America In particular, she examines the hoopla over Plan B and the HPV vaccine pro life groups anti condom activities the defunding by President G.W Bush of UNFPA and American life pre and post Roe the latter reads like a precursor to Margaret Atwood s THE HANDMAID S TALE Little in HOW THE PRO CHOICE MOVEMENT SAVED AMERICA will surprise readers who are engaged in the struggle for reproductive rights At just 238 pages minus 70 pages of notes and indices , this is a slim tome, especially given the subject matter On the flip side, had Page made her review of anti choice activitiesexhaustive, HOW THE PRO CHOICE MOVEMENT SAVED AMERICA could have easily exceeded 500 pages thus narrowing her audience considerably As such, I think the author strikes a nice balance between insight and brevity It s a quick, easy and informative read I polished it off in a weekend, and even learned a few new factoids, even though I ve been following feminist blogs and organizations for years Some of the information is by now out of date hopefully, Page will soon release an updated paperback edition Still, the book is a good starting point for those new to the politics of reproduction, sexuality and Constitutional rights vis vis bodily privacy.Other reviewers have accused Page of cherry picking quotes from pro life websites, press releases and interviews, further arguing that these views do not represent the majority of pro lifers views A laughable observation, as this is precisely Page s point In the opening pages, Page points out that many laypeople who describe themselves as pro life and donate money to pro life organizations actually haven t a clue as to these organizations and thus the movement s true beliefs and aims, which go well beyond outlaying abortion Thus, it s those who oppose abortion but respect women, men and children and enjoy sex and the right to privacy who most need to read HOW THE PRO CHOICE MOVEMENT SAVED AMERICA Put simply, to be truly pro life is to be pro choice
