Judy Blume is under fire from anti-choicers because of this recent appeal on behalf of Planned Parenthood. I’m not going to link to any of their blogs or websites because I don’t want to drive any more traffic their way. They’re trotting out the usual arguments – if Judy Blume were a good mother, she wouldn’t support baby killing; Planned Parenthood is a front for the eugenics movement (its founder, Margaret Sanger, reputedly supported eugenics as well as birth control, which is not good, but it was fairly common in the 1920s). That whole rigmarole.

If you’re thinking of getting cute with it and using this as an opportunity to send Judy hate mail for supporting a woman’s right to choose or for writing books in which teenage girls masturbate, then start your own blog and whinge to your heart’s content.
