Book review: ‘Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights,’ by Katha Pollitt

Connie Schultz is a nationally syndicated columnist in Cleveland and the author of “. . . and His Lovely Wife.”

Katha Pollitt may not appreciate my starting this review with her description of her own experience of motherhood, but this is my attempt to broaden her audience beyond the predictable cast for her small, powerful book. “People think of pregnant women as weak and vulnerable, but when I was pregnant with my daughter I felt as if I could put my hand in fire and it would only glow,” she writes in “Pro.” “I never felt alone: There were two of us, right there.

Thank You for your welcome! I like mysteries and thrillers. I enjoy watching crime television, its interesting to see how cases are sold. And also what types of things can cause a case to go unsolved. Real stories and the entertainment shows as well. How about you?
