The following article was posted today on Facebook by a friend who is a staunch women’s rights advocate.  I admire her commitment and determination to publicly address issues she feels strongly about.  Some of her posts are disturbing.  I think that is deliberate, because when they make people feel uncomfortable, she has succeeded in getting her readers to stop and think about their own convictions.  While I may not always entirely agree with her, I always learn something from her posts.

I usually avoid controversy but, on the anniversary of Roe v Wade, it’s appropriate to stop and think about the path that brought us to where we are today…and about the path we will forge in the future.

Eleanor Cooney has written about her own experience as a young woman. Her experience was one that many young women faced in those early years of the ‘60s. I was one of them.

Warning: This article contains graphic descriptions and a disturbingly graphic photo

IMHO~~~We’ve come a long way, baby…but we still have a long way to go.
