More Discussion About Pregnancy, Prisons, and Drugs Around the Web

There are really interesting discussion threads going on over at FeministePandagon and Bitch PhD about punitive approaches to women who give birth despite a drug problem (which I wrote about yesterday here and have also written about here and here).

I have to say, I am thrilled to see this issue getting more coverage in the blogosphere (I think in no small part because of the NAPW conference). There’s no shortage of incidents like the one we heard about today, in which a woman who was raped and then arrested for some outstanding warrant was denied EC. That’s only the tip of the iceberg.

The quality of the conversation in the posts and in comments has been great, and I hope it will continue. I’ll certainly keep on fanning the flames in comments at other blogs and in my posts here.
