"Our Bodies, Our Souls". (Briefly Mentioned).
The New Republic, October 16, 1995
Naomi Wolf questions the party line on abortion advocacy for feminists. While still clearly maintaining a "pro-choice" position, she considers many of the arguments that pro-life feminists have made and finds merit in them. She proposes that the "pro-choice" argument would be strengthened by being honest and facing these problems. She makes many thoughtful points, but her conclusions rely on acceptance of violence as a solution for problems. She seems unaware of the Catch-22 she has proposed: if the problems must be faced rather than avoided, then that also weakens the "pro-choice" argument.
