Congratulations to LM's own Susan Ito (Life in the Sandwich) whose essay is featured in the anthology, Choice:True Stories of Birth, Contraception, Infertility, Adoption, Single Parenthood and Adoption edited by Karen E. Bender and Nina de Gramont. In today's Huffington Post, Karen E. Bender writes about the ongoing battle over reproductive rights and the limitless meaning of the word choice. Ms. Bender uses quotes from Susan's essay about her personal struggle and I for one am looking forward to reading these stories!
