Time to toss aside complacency

There are a lot of things I'd like to say about the Supreme Court's recent ruling on 2nd trimester abortions but there are a lot more eloquent people out there already saying most of it much better than I ever could.

So, my goal is just to post a link to Planned Parenthood to remind all of us that it's time to toss aside our complacency about the resilience of Roe vs. Wade and time to take action. Quite apart from the reckless lack of medical exceptions to this scary decision, the government has no business telling us what to do with our bodies. Ladies, if you value your reproductive freedom, please support Planned Parenthood. You may abhor abortion on a personal level but that's just it - it's a personal feeling, a personal choice. Please protect that choice for other women by signing the Planned Parenthood pledge and/or donating money.

I'm glad you mentioned this. This procedure is an important one for doctors in order to save a mother's life. I have a dear, dear, beloved friend who developed eclampsia in the 7th month of her pregnancy. Long story short, my friend nearly died because the doctor could not perform a 2nd trimester abortion (my friend's dangerously high blood pressue caused by ecalampsia ruled out vaginal or c-section delivery). When it happens to someone in your life, reality shifts.
