The 13th Carnival of the Radical FeministsApril 21, 2008
The Thirteenth Carnival of the Radical Feminists is up and Anji has done a fantastic job.
I personally have to register my concern that an article advocating stem cell research was included in this month’s carnival, as I know that many (most?) radical feminists are opposed to the harvesting of eggs from women’s bodies which is necessary for stem cell research. Women have died from the egg extraction proceedure and there are real concerns that in the future women will be paid to sell their bodies out as egg factories in order to satiate man’s desire to control life, death and reproduction. For more information about this issue go to the Hands Off Our Ovaries website and sign the manifesto. Because women’s lives are not playthings for masculinist scientists.
Although I have problems with this one blog post, I take no issue with this edition of carnival or with Anji. I think she has done a wonderful job and I am amazed that she has been able to produce it on time despite having a young child and various other things going on in her life. Kudos to you sister.
