Remember the Ladies
So urged Abigail Adams, and I think she'd be very unhappy right now. As she points out,
Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.She would probably have been a member of Planned Parenthood, which has a petition you can sign to request that Roberts be forthcoming in his views on abortion. Yes, let's use the actual word, not a euphemism.
Also, if you are still trying to figure out who to give Hurricane Katrina money to, consider Planned Parenthood. Their clinics and services were damaged or destroyed by the hurricane, and for some reason I don't think this administration will be rushing in to restore them as a first priority. Gotta do those photo-ops with the firemen first. Gotta put on a hard hat.
Granted, sex is the last thing on most people's minds right now. However, I foresee women having problems getting substitute pills or new prescriptions or had to flee without their diaphragms or condoms. As you all know, if you take birth control pills, you have to keep up that hormone level regardless of whether you're having sex (even legal, marital, missionary-position sex).
No flashy button, but donate here.
