"to love and be loved"

Dorinda C. Bordlee of the National Review (04/13/2005) says that radical feminism got it wrong. What women want is not about pleasure and power: they want to love and be loved.
 "A January 2003 peer-reviewed survey of the long-term impact of abortion on women’s health found that women who had undergone abortion were three to six times more likely to commit suicide. A March 2005 study seems to confirm the hypothesis that women are often coerced into abortion by partner violence and emotionally unsupportive men by showing that post-abortive women are much more likely to be the victims of homicide. It seems that far from liberating us, the radical feminist idea of what women want -- uncommitted sex (pleasure) and abortion rights (power)-- has facilitated the sexual exploitation of women on a scale far grander than men could have ever thought up by themselves. It’s time to reevaluate."
Read it all and think about it.
