So interesting. Remember the woman I made the TikTok about who I talked to about her “pro life Democrat” stance? She also had a whole thing about how it’s a totally acceptable and viable choice to carry a non-viable, or possibly even deceased fetus for a month or two instead of aborting it. She even told me about some thing called prenatal Hospice? Or something like that? Anyway, we had quite a conversation about that as well. Since I have had miscarriages and she hadn’t, I was able to help her understand how bonkers that idea is.

This week I received my shipment of Pink Cards, which I wouldn’t have known about if Jessica hadn’t mentioned them.

Yesterday was national match day when 4th year (graduating) medical students learned where they will be going for their internship and residency. It would be interesting to know if anti abortion states were able to fill all of their OB/GYN internship openings.
The names, faces, and stories of individual victims of these laws - that's what they are, victims - need to be widely shared and need to fully permeate the American consciousness. I'm concerned about whether they're reaching beyond highly educated and informed liberal/progressive audiences. It needs to be common knowledge, because without the stories, too many people may not realize how bad it really is.
