Today is National Day of Appreciation for Abortion-providers! Here are just a few reasons to recognize and a couple ways to do so!
I'm not Catholic, but I am a very spiritual person, and I feel like faith is an important aspect of the total shape of my politics. And as someone who is conflicted about abortion in terms of faith, it's nice to hear someone basically say it's okay to be pro-choice and pro-life.

Say this ten times fast: An Act to Protect the Safety of Maine Children by Requiring the Express Consent of Legal Guardian to Dispense Prescription Medication to a Minor.
In the name of informed consent, more states are hopping on the ultrasound bandwagon.
A Mississippi sex ed bill may finally address the rising teen birth rates. But is it too little too late?
