America’s Reproductive Slaves

As Chris Hedges points out, the new Alabama law is draconian. It is disgraceful and an insult to women in Alabama and thus to all American women.  Further, it is shameful and by implication, threatens women’s constitutional rights.


“Raising children is not a lifestyle choice. It is labor-intensive work that demands of parents, and especially women, huge physical, emotional, financial and time commitments. The wider society reaps the benefits of this work. It has a social and moral responsibility to compensate and assist those who raise children.”
