cranky confession: why I’m fighting the War on Women

"Why are you so passionate about women's rights, sexual victim's rights, and reproductive rights? You've never been raped or assaulted, you've never had an abortion, you've never been abused." I have three best girlfriends. Among the three there have been two abortions, and two miscarriages. Today, two are married, one has two children and the other is expecting her first in a few weeks. The ot...


Attitude Reflects Leadership- Moving Forward

Attitude Reflects Leadership   The election is over, the results are in and the people have spoken. President Obama won the electoral vote by a distinct margin as well as the popular vote- although, admittedly by a lesser margin. The people also made their voices heard in several key Senate races, rejecting the misogynistic, xenophobic attitudes of the Todd Akins and Joe Walsh’s of the ...


Good-Bye GOP

Last Presidential election it was about making history. I cried that night because finally America cast aside its prejudice and racism and voted for a man, not based on his skin color, but on who he was as a man. I was so proud, so grateful that in my lifetime I saw the struggles of my parent’s generation fighting for civil rights and equality come to fruition. On Nov. 6th I know there will...


One Woman’s Demand

Women have not been treated as full citizens of these United States from the inception of this country, and our Declaration of Independence and Constitution through the amendment process, did not remedy these deficiencies, our lives have been restricted unduly because of false information and invalid ideas which depicted women as inferior human beings in mind and body incapable of self determi...


Silence No More

The first thing an abusive man teaches “his” woman is to be silent. I am sitting here wondering if I dare make this analogy.  I do not wish to make light of those women who find themselves trapped in the reality of abuse so please do not make the assumption that I am not aware.  I have seen the harm that a man can do to a woman or a child and somehow justify it in his demented diseased mi...


A Poem for the Cause

Uteri Unite Us you lust for my potential vessel bowl in which to plant vase of the wilted contents that I wish emptied you long to quench an immense thirst for what has always been for what will always be Mine you want to enter the hollow cave stake it out build a democratic infrastructure in which I have no vote I unfold the layers of time that covers my arrow, my flint the han...


Abortion – A Paradigm shift

There are times in your life when you read something that completely shifts your paradigm.  Lynn Beisner's Blog did just that for me.   I have read and heard many stories of why someone is so lucky their mother didn't have an abortion or mothers who were glad they didn't choose abortion.  These mothers are deemed a "good person" for their decision. Lynn Beisner's "I Wish My Mother Had Abo...


Have You Had Enough Yet Vaginas?

On February 16, 2012 thousands of women across this country were faced with an image that became the straw to break the camel’s back.  The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on the contraceptive coverage rule called an all-male panel with no women representatives, prompting some women members of Congress to walk out of the hearing in protest. This was just another slap i...


Let Women Die Day – A Day to Remember

Let Women Die Day turned out to be June 13th.  HB 5711 just passed 70-39 with six Democrats voting yes...Charles, Brunner, Paul Clemente, Bob Constan, George Darany, Richard LeBlanc and Lesia Liss.  HB 5712 and HB 5713 will be reviewed after their summer break as they want to make sure the proposed ban after 20 weeks of pregnancy — which doesn't include an exception for rape, incest or fetal ...
