Today is the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. It’s also National Blog for Choice Day

There are still folks and factions out there who want the government to dictate what a woman can do with her body. It’s not right. A woman’s body is hers and no entity or individual has the right to dictate what a person does with/to her own body.

ovarian cysts

I just found out that my 16-year-old daughter, who lives very far away from me, spent 5 hours in the hospital today as a result of severe pain. Tests revealed she had a ruptured ovarian cyst.


She had been to the doctor for her annual several weeks ago and had complained of the pain she had been experiencing. The doctor indicated it might be her appendix????

I’m not sure why they didn’t test for this. Now I am extremely worried.

“The Dominoes Have Begun to Fall”

Those are the words of Planned Parenthood who has put out an alert that 11 more states are considering criminalizing abortion – even in cases of rape and incest.

The abortion ban signed in South Dakota last week was only the beginning. Eleven more states have proposed criminalizing abortion. The governor of Mississippi, Haley Barbour, recently said if an abortion ban reaches his desk, he will sign it. Act now to stop the dominoes from falling.

Planned Parenthood’s campaign is to stop this dominoe effect and also to reiterate that prevention is the key – not punishment.

Tell Gov. Barbour [and your governor] that Americans do not support any bans on the right to choose.
