An Observation

There is probably something profound to be said about the the simultaneous increase in anti-choice legislation and the exponentially intense cultural preoccupation with celebrity reproduction—pregnancy rumors! baby bumps! maternity fashion! nursery designs! gender watch! labor vigil! baby names! first pics!—but I don't know what that profound thing is.

All I got is this: It's all part of the same body policing, bodies with uteri are public property, entitled to your private reproduction business. And it's totally fucking gross.
