Salon has an interesting article up today about the anti-contraception stance of the anti-choice movement and the real motivation behind what they do - the desire to force women to maintain the traditional wife/mother roles.

The article refers frequently to a recently published book How The Pro-choice Movement Saved America by Cristina Page. I just started it yesterday but I'm already finding it fascinating. The first chapter covers some of the same issues discussed in the article, contraception and the disconnect between anti-choicer's supposed desire to reduce the number of abortions and the actual results of the positions they hold as far as birth control is concerned.

Update: Pandagon has a couple of posts up about this same article here and here, and Shakespeare's Sister also has a post on it.
