Egypt, Madison, Abortion Rights

          Two important demonstrations took place in New York last Saturday: one in support of Wisconsin public workers and the other in defense of Planned Parenthood. I have a personal interest in both: I grew up in Milwaukee, and I got my first diaphragm from Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger clinic in 1967. (I had to come to New York to get one because birth control was illegal in Massachusetts, where I went to college.)
