In his bitter words.
Thanks.. meeting someone of her age who felt it important to walk to a PP rally, so inspiring. I hope Sandra met Jane.
You want it "covered", as in when you go to the store and "buy" it, it costs nothing. That about right?
No, not insurance that you pay for, because the insurance that you pay for doesn't cover it. You want it covered, for... free.
Would you rather pay the education cost? How about food, clothing, and shelter in some cases? Would you rather they abort after the fact? We are all better off when we prevent unwanted pregnancies. Wish the right would figure this out.
And funny thing, the rate of teen pregnancy is highest in the states where the right holds strongest sway, lowest where liberals do.
I've met Fluke. She's engaging and she backs her words with effort. I"m a PP volunteer (in fact, there's an annual awards ceremony for volunteers in this state. Organisations nominate people as recipients, and about 100 are honoured. I'll be one, thanks to the kind folks at PP.) Six weeks or so ago, she was here with the PP pink bus. We all went out and rallied support around the local community, and Sandra did some as well.I teamed with another. First person on our list was walking back home from the rally, she got there the same time we did, a covered distance of maybe 3/10 of a mile. As we both closed in on the door, I asked if she was such and such. My pink PP top rendered unnecessary identification, but nonetheless I identified.
"I worked for PP before you were born," she said.
"Hmmmm... I'm 57."
"I'm 93." She went on to tell me she was a retired physician who once worked for PP in New Jersey.
Anyway, no way Sandra equates to Laura.
'What my mother told me was that if I put myself out into the public arena (no matter how big or little the stage), to expect negative comments (attacks). She taught me to be sure of who I am and what I believe and instilled in me that "just because someone says it about you, doesn't make it true".
Well put. I agree. My comments about the DNC women speakers as victims were about the speeches themselves...whether or not they were presenting themselves as victims in the actual speeches.
