A few months ago, I started reading the blog posts of Irene North, a writer in Nebraska. She’s very articulate, passionate, and smart, and I find myself nodding often as I read her writing. Two days after the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, she published an amazingly thorough compilation of information about abortion, from history to access to digital privacy, and how to support different organizations. I was inspired by Irene’s two posts, the one last Friday and then Sunday’s, to write my own Speaking Out post on Sunday, and I borrowed (OK, stole) the black and white graphic in my post from her Sunday post.
Long-winded way of saying if you want more information, background and history, and suggestions for how to help, go read Irene’s post. Click on the image below (my favorite from that post) to jump to the article. And while you’re at it, think about subscribing to her website. Support female writers, especially those with strong viewpoints who aren’t afraid to speak their truth. We need more of that these days.
Obviously, without the right of women and men to make decisions about our own bodies, there is no democracy.
