DAHLIA LITHWICK writes about a man’s right to choose in Slate. It’s not a bad piece. I’ve got a piece on the back burner (I have a lot of those — my scholarly rangetop goes into another timezone, but at least I’ll never run out of things to write about even if I never have a new idea) called Male Procreative Autonomy that addresses these issues in more depth. There’s rather a lot of hypocrisy, which Lithwick doesn’t really address, in the juncture between the way abortion is treated (“my body, my choice!”) and the way child-support is treated (“he got her pregnant, he should pay!”). Perhaps Richard Bennett will have something to say on this topic.
