William Saletan, the chief political correspondent for Slate writes here about the recently announced April 25, 2004 March for Choice that is a collaborative effort between Planned Parenthood, NOW, NARAL, and the Feminist Majority.

He also mentions that he has a new book coming out about the changing face of abortion politics. Bearing Right: How Conservatives Won the Abortion War.

As Peter Beinart, editor, The New Republic says:

"Saletan destroys the myth that there's nothing new to say about America's abortion debate. His argument that the pro-choice movement has preserved abortion rights by co-opting conservative rhetoric will make activists on both sides of the debate uncomfortable, which is an achievement in and of itself. There's no smarter political commentator in Washington today."

My guess is that Saletan was not aware as he wrote this book of the role that post-abortive women who regret their abortions are apt to play in abortion politics in the coming years.
