In this week's Gabfest, DoubleX's Emily Bazelon, Jessica Grose, and Hanna Rosin discuss the new abortion documentary by Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing, 12th & Delaware;Lauren Sandler's Time cover story about only children; and Chelsea Clinton's forthcoming nuptials.

The DoubleX Gabfest weekly "coffee talk" endorsements:

Emily Bazelon's pick: This week Emily is looking for summer reading recommendations, and wants you to leave yours in the comments below. Suggestions do not have to be new books—classics are welcome, Emily says.

Jessica Grose's pick: Jeggings, the pants that are a combination of jeans and leggings. Like Emily's pick, this is not a straightforward endorsement—it's more of an existential question. Why jeggings?


Hanna Rosin's pick: Mona Simpson's new book, My Hollywood, which is about the relationship between a nanny and her employer.

Here is a list of other articles mentioned in the Gabfest:

Lauren Sandler's Time magazine article, "The Only Child: Debunking the Myths"
Emily Bazelon's New York Times Magazine article, "The New Abortion Providers"
Susan Orlean's blog post, "Skintight"
