Susan Estrich: The 'no shame' debate

Posted 7/25/2015 in National Columns

No one has a later term abortion because she's changed her mind about having a baby. Doctors in almost all states won't perform them for that reason; and, by the way, what kind of beasts do you think women are?

Susan Estrich: The value of nurses

Posted 4/4/2015 in National Columns

I never quite understood what "nursing" really meant until the past six months, when the supposed superstar doctor, who operated on me in Phoenix (One of the smartest male doctors I know told me she was the best, a woman, how wonderful; beware of gender bias.), made a mess of my intestines, leaving me rather critically ill with peritonitis and unbearable pain while she went to Maui.

Susan Estrich: The enemy of our enemy

Posted 9/8/2014 in National Columns

The horrifying footage of the second beheading of an American journalist by ISIS, this time freelancer Steven Joel Sotloff, a 31-year-old from Florida who loved journalism, has again placed the president, and world leaders, in a terrible position. To be clear, the White House is studying the video. To be clear, no one is holding out much hope.
