I believe in choices. Choices in childbirth, pregnancy, reproduction in general, parenting choices, lifestyle choices. Choice… all around choice.
Today, while many are cheering the passing of the reform, others are thumbing their nose at it. I sit here in the middle of the road but certainly grateful for a specific portion of this bill not allowing providers to deny medical coverage for pre-existing medical conditions.
What became even more shocking to us were the replies, numbers and information we were able to obtain with this project.

Women have fought for the past 100 years for all the amazing freedoms that we have today, and for doors to be closing left and right for choices women would like to make regarding their own medical care is downright frightening.
