Though Susan G Komen retracted its very political and very wrong decision this blogger will be sending money to Planned Parenthood. I think I have a story in the archives somewhere about being eighteen and needing to find out if I was pregnant or not. If not I will hopefully write it this weekend
Planned Parenthood was there as it was there for exams and questions I didn’t want to ask my mother. I do wish Planned Parenthood offered mammograms as many insurance companies still don’t cover them and so many people are without any health insurance. You shouldn’t have to risk bankruptcy if you get sick before 2014. My insurance covers so little it scares me yet is almost $500 a month–older and pre-existing conditions.
This is an incredible and incredibly flawed country that panders to the right. This week we showed the power of Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. It was amazing to look at my Facebook wall and see almost all statuses in support of Planned Parenthood.
