Open Letter to Terri Lynn Land and Right To Life of Michigan

On October 3rd, Terri Lynn Land participated in a call-in radio show on Michigan Public Radio's Michigan Calling. I called and asked her to explain her stance on the Personhoold Amendment and the Hobby Lobby decision. Her answer? She doesn’t support Personhood. Yet Right To Life Michigan endorsed her based on her support of Personhood. Her answer was contradictory to the answer she had to give...


Reality Bites – Lessons From November 6th

Democrats had an amazing election night, so much so one would think Republicans would be doing some serious soul searching. Instead what are we hearing? • We lost our momentum due to Sandy • Our country is made up of more “takers” than “makers” with those takers just wanting free stuff. • We weren’t anti-abortion enough • The liberal media is in the bag for Obama • D...


a cranky theory on Paul Ryan’s jobs plan, and why I have trouble sleeping at night

  Reflecting on the religion/abortion question from the VP debate, Ryan said that (flip flop alert!) he WOULD allow abortion in cases of rape, incest, and life of the mother. Note that he said life of the mother, not health of the mother, which are two different things-- if the fetus isn't definitely going to kill the woman, there's a chance she won't get the abortion she still needs, or w...


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...


Discovering Courage: An Abortion Provider’s Daughter

    The first time I answered the question, “Nice to meet you. What do you do?” with the complete, whole truth I found it hard to breathe. I waited to see the faces change, the hand pull away. That was because, until that moment, when I first met people, I never revealed my full job description. To my relief, no one attacked me, judged me, or even looked at me strangely. I didn...


I remember the day clearly.

I remember the day clearly. I remember the face. The feeling. This is the first time I am saying it out loud, in public, to anyone. A secret hidden from my parents, sisters, best friends, I have told no one on earth and held it inside for 43 years. Every time I think back to that day, I push it to the back of my memories with tears, I am shaking now as I write these words. What will people t...


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...


Hold Politicians Responsible for Their Rhetoric

    I’ve always been judgmental about how people handle national tragedies.  I’ve taken people off of my Facebook friends list for joking at all about the Aurora shooting, the Indiana State Fair tragedy where people were killed by the collapsing stage, and anything involving the war.  I don’t think it is right to take advantage of the deaths of many for your own personal ga...
