A Roadmap to Defining and Winning the Real Abortion Debate: Prevention vs. Punishment 01-30-2007

It's Not Just Abortion, Stupid: Progressives and Abortion by Carole Joffe, 01-30-2007
Many progressives are now undergoing a reevaluation of the “costs” of a commitment to abortion rights. Abortion can best be defended if it is framed as one element of a larger platform of sexual and reproductive rights and services. There exists now a powerful opening to expose the hypocrisy of “family values” conservatives who seek to withhold from working Americans virtually all that they need—contraception, meaningful sex education, health care for the uninsured, living wages, affordable childcare, as well as abortion care—to raise healthy families. This piece is reprinted from the Winter 2005 issue of Dissent.

Pessimistic Conservatives Cannot Fix Social Security by Fred Block, 01-30-2007

No Mandate for Market Fundamentalism by Fred Block, 01-30-2007

Women Really on Their Own by Ruth Rosen, 01-30-2007

Reframing the Political Battle: Market Fundamentalism vs. Moral Economy by Fred Block, 01-30-2007
Fred Block begins Longview's systematic critique of Market Fundamentalism—the economic doctrine that has dominated the U.S. and global economy since the 1980's. Tying his analysis closely to the current political situation, Block argues that progressives can gain political leverage by focusing their criticisms on the exaggerated reverence for the market that has shaped the current Administration's domestic and foreign agendas. His goal is to show that Market Fundamentalism is both inadequate as an economic theory and morally dangerous. Later articles in this series will analyze the destructive impact of Market Fundamentalism in particular policy areas.

Editorials on Reproductive Rights from "Contraception" by Ann Hwang, Wayne Shields, Felicia Stewart, 01-30-2007
A broad reframing of reproductive rights is a major project of the Longview Institute. We agree with many other progressive groups that the reproductive freedom movement has been losing the battle of language to the Right, and that this movement urgently needs to re-articulate a vision that resonates with more Americans. To further this goal, Longview Fellows and staff have been holding a series of very fruitful discussions on this topic with researchers from the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF).
