regulated women's sex and reproductive freedom within the confines of the national family system" (p. 29). Child killing as a specific form of violence by women and violence by women in general becomes a legitimate form of self-defense, and liberation is the ability to exercise the choice to have a child or not. The very fact there is no alternative to abortion or infanticide, and both are prevalent, indicates that women as a class are not free. This is an argument that has precedence in the United States; it should sound familiar to all who have read Toni Morrison's Beloved and followed the discussion about what it means that Sethe, a woman born into slavery, would rather kill her own child than subject her to the same system. The responsibility for abortion and infanticide is collectively shared rather than seen as belonging exclusively to a deviant individual, and their incidence should provide insight into how categories of race, gender, sexuality, and class infringe upon our collective freedom.
