I just want to say Happy Abortion Provider Appreciation Day.
I want to recognizing that abortions alone are not something to celebrate. But the right to exercise ones choices for their body is something to celebrate. I want to thank the courageous women and men who are so often putting their lives and careers at risk by keeping a valued service available so that no woman has to seek unsafe, un-sterile and life threatening abortions.
I hope that fewer women need to seek their service and use birth control and other contraceptives. I am so grateful that women and doctors are safe under the law. They deserve our appreciation.
I’d like to send my condolences to the family of Dr. George Tiller and those who have lost loves ones at the hands of crazed individuals.
Please continue supporting NARAL and your local Planned Parenthood. Also, check out and support Aspen Baker of Exhale, the first non-political forum for women who have had abortions to tell their unique and individual stories and find support.
