Reproductive Rights and Jobs. Reality. MittSpeak and Policy of Mindless Fecundity. Marge Piercy

Reproductive Rights and Jobs.
Marge Piercy * 
Testing the latest MittSpeak. 
 Testing. Testing. Wha?

Romney Policy of Mindless Fecundity.

Static. Bzzzt.

Real-time warning. Jobless and jobbed women have this real-time warning to other women, on jobs-talk vs. the effects of R-efforts to "legislate mineral rights in a woman" (another Piercy line, same poem).

If you can't control
Your reproduction, you lose.
Job goes to the guy.


Right to Life. "A woman is not a pear tree, thrusting her fruit in mindless fecundity into the world. ****"
Poet, Marge Piercy, see full poem Right to Life,  at

Blue book question.  Discuss.
