Great Blog!

I just got an update email from Planned Parenthood with a link to a great blog, "I Am Emily X". It chronicles the life of a Planned Parenthood worker who is encountering protesters--anti-choice people who are calling their harassment "40 days for life."

It breaks my heart that in a country where the health care system is a travesty, these people feel that they have nothing better to do than persecute women who need affordable reproductive health care. This is one of the things that make me grateful to live in Denmark. Denmark is one of the most family focused countries in the world, certainly a hundred times more than the U.S., and there is never a conversation about a woman's right to choose in the news. It's not questioned that, of course, a woman has the right to choose her own path and to plan when she's ready for parenthood.
