    THE STATE of Tennessee is about to establish a dangerous new precedent in the war on women.

    Both houses of the state legislature recently passed SB 1391, a bill that would sanction women’s arrest and incarceration on the basis of the outcomes of their pregnancies. If Gov. Bill Haslam does not veto the measure, it would be the first law in the U.S. to criminalize pregnant women for the use of illegal or prescription drugs.

    Supporters of reproductive rights are trying to pressure Haslam into stopping SB 1391 from becoming law.

    Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion, hundreds of pregnant women have suffered unwanted medical interventions, arrests and incarcerations, based on a range of flimsy assertions about the health of their pregnancies—very often without legal or medical grounding for the claim that the women were responsible for harming a fetus or newborn.

    National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW) compiled a groundbreaking report showing how these cases amount to what NAPW Executive Director Lynn Paltrow has termed the “New Jane Crow”—a reference to author Michelle Alexander’s best-selling book on racism and mass incarceration, The New Jim Crow.

    ….no

    Can white feminists PLEASE fucking stop trying to push the “New Jane Crow”? What’s new about policing and controlling women’s bodies and reproductive rights? Oh, right, absolutely nothing, it’s just that now it’s happening to white women (real women, phew) so it’s a Big Deal.

    Can activists, period, not have to appropriate terminology that relates their issue back to the Black civil rights struggle as a means of legitimating what they have to say?

    Be My Baby is a song by The Ronettes, released as a single in August 1963. It has had a substantial impact on popular music. Rolling Stone described the song as a “Rosetta stone for studio pioneers such as the Beatles and Brian Wilson”. Allmusic critic Jason Ankeny said: “No less an authority than Brian Wilson has declared ‘Be My Baby’ the greatest pop record ever made — no arguments here.” It was listed at #22 by Rolling Stone on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Timex
