Here is a piece of good news. Out of the winter of horrors for people who care about reproductive rights and the personhood of women, there comes this:
Spring in Alabama
And the blogger Whatever (Still Running Against the Wind) has posted an open letter from an anonymous ob/gyn who calls for doctors to defy the dehumanizing anti-woman bills (particularly the transvaginal ultrasound bills).
There is something very chilling about the fact that a doctor who is standing up for human rights - who wants to speak out against draconian legislation which is skating shockingly close to reducing women to sexual enslavement - must remain anonymous for his own professional and possibly personal safety.
I'm on vacation right now - spring break for the last chicks in the nest - so I have to soak up the time while I still have kids at home. But I am going on a mission in my downtime to dig up as many of these sorts of stories as I can find and I will post links.
I'd like to believe the tide is turning, but I'd like to do whatever I can to keep that momentum going.
