succumbing to peer pressure

Amended reaction to "pre-pregnancy" report (thanks to BitchPhD):

Turns out it's the WaPo misleading everyone into getting their panties in a bunch.

It seems to me that the biggest news here isn't the CDC; it's the interpretation of this document in the broader context of increasingly conservative ideas that women are primarily baby-factories and mothers, rather than actual human beings whose health care matters for its own sake. Luckily the CDC (and, in my experience, most health care providers, especially in women's health) still belong to the reality-based community.

As AWB leaves in comments over at Bitch:

Dear Journalists of America,
Your job is to fucking DESCRIBE things BEFORE editorializing.
Thank you,
Citizens Who Depend on You
