In Which The Stupak Amendment Rains On My Parade

Alison Cole

My tax dollars pay for military action I do not support, and anti-abortion people refuse to allow premiums paid by individual women to go toward abortion coverage within their health plan. Why is my concern for life less valid?

I got a meeting.

Alison Cole

Senator Cantwell, I am meeting with your staff to say that the health care system as it is is broken and must change. 

Got hope?

Alison Cole

I have been so cynical lately about getting repro health coverage in a health care reform bill...

Alison Cole

I am so deeply saddened by the American College of Nurse Midwives' decision to fight the inclusion of Certified Professional Midwives in health-care reform. 

Informed consent

Alison Cole

I challenge every health care provider to provide the informed consent of two marginalized, but essential, areas of women's health care: abortion and midwifery.

Listening

Alison Cole

When we listen to and synthesize women's stories, we see that empowering us to make the best choices for our own lives is the best foundation for health and well-being.
