What Place Does Motherhood Have in Kagan’s Confirmation Debate?

Nicole Allan writes for The Atlantic: “One of the branches of speculation about Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s personal life has centered on her decision not to have children. Peter Beinart first raised the topic on the Daily Beast last month, making a flimsy argument for Obama to tap Diane Wood, who has six children, over Kagan, who has none. Ann Gerhart followed up in the Washington Post last Sunday with a more developed case for more mothers on the Supreme Court.”
