Worthwhile Reads: I Am a Woman

There was an interesting article on Huffington Post today called “10 Reasons the Rest of the World Thinks the U.S. is Nuts.” The author focuses on recent rollbacks or women’s rights, and I thought this part was particularly well put:

I am a woman and I have these human rights:

The right to life.
The right to privacy.
The right to freedom.
The right to bodily integrity.
The right to decide when and how I reproduce.

The rhetoric of the day has become caught up in “religious liberty” and “saving babies.” We need to reclaim this rhetoric and once again make this conversation about women’s rights as humans. Until we do that, we will continue to lose the discussion.
