Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM.
First, I want to clarify that
there are many "major interests"
for the women's movement. Reproductive
rights is one of them, as is
comprehensive health care, responsible
welfare reform, etc... The women's
movement won't move unless all
of these issues are addressed--as
each is a different priority
for different women.
Second, I want to clarify
that "reproductive rights" includes
comprehensive sexual education.
If you look at those who support
these rights--they also support
sex education. Similiarly, if
you look at those who oppose
these rights--they oppose sex
education. Because the right-wing's
ultimate goal is to control
women's reproduction, this must
include eliminating access to
all abortions and sex education.
Because it is easier to mobilize
people to "oppose" abortion
than it is to oppose sex education,
they mask their campaign in
the former. Don't be fooled.
You should look to Planned
Parenthood and to other
issue specific groups for how
specifically they are addressing
this issue. There is also a
group called "SEICUS"--which
will have comphrensive information
on sex education in the schools.
