41 Years Old and Still in Danger

Last post for the day.  I have been unplugged largely, and have a lot of reading to do to catch up.  Since this is the anniversary of Roe V. Wade, I wanted to point out this story from over at RH Reality Check:  (One of the few places I never unplug from)

By the time you finish reading this article, another womancould lose her life to an unsafe abortion because her access to safe care was restricted.

And on her behalf, I’m asking you to get angry.

On the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, there’s not much to celebrate. A recent Guttmacher report showed more state abortion restrictions were enacted from 2011 to 2013 than in the entire previous decade.

Can the progress made in 40 years be undone in three? When it comes to Roe v. Wade, it sure seems possible.

Go, read the rest of the piece by  Lauren McKown and if you don’t already, favorite RH Reality Check and subscribe to their amazing podcast hosted by Amanda Marcotte.
