memeorandum: Forever Pregnant — Guidelines: Treat Nearly All Women as Pre-Pregnant (January W. Payne/Washington Post)
Forever Pregnant — Guidelines: Treat Nearly All Women as Pre-Pregnant — New federal guidelines ask all females capable of conceiving a baby to treat themselves — and to be treated by the health care system — as pre-pregnant, regardless of whether they plan to get pregnant anytime soon.
Feministe, Shakespeare’s Sister, Pen-Elayne on the Web, Pinko Feminist Hellcat, Bitch Ph.D., Pandagon, Truthdig and Feministing [and may I add Cut to the Chase, to the list of women talking about women]

    Uh… and you ARE an important woman blogger. Hit numbers do not determine augustness… having intelligence and something important to say and delivering it accordingly does.
