Feminist writer Naomi Wolf is the author of two books: Fire with Fire and The Beauty Myth. Wolf has sparked a heated debate within the feminist community following the publication of an article in the New Republic called "Our Bodies, Our Souls," which criticizes the pro-choice movement for lacking an ethical core and calls on the movement to re-think its rhetoric. More specifically, she say the abortion rights movement must "mourn the evil that is abortion." But some feminists are angry that her new position on abortion will empower the anti-choice movement and perhaps affect public policy on this issue.
GUESTS: Naomi Wolf in our Washington studios. Katha Pollitt, contributing editor, The Nation in New York.
