Thanks giving......Help Protect Women's Rights
I will be very, very Thankfull if we can stop this appointment!!

Everyone have a wonderful day of good friends, family and food!

Well, Bushy is at it again.....

President Bush's new head of federal family-planning programs believes that birth control is "demeaning" to women. Did you have to read that twice? So did I.

Late last week, after pledging to bring the country together after his electoral losses, President Bush appointed Eric Keroack to lead the Department of Health and Human Services' family-planning program – which supports 4,600 clinics and more than five million people annually. Putting a doctor who opposes birth control in charge of a federal family-planning program is just plain irresponsible. Sign the petition and say NO to Keroack now. Keroack has dedicated his career to telling women that birth control and abortion are wrong. He most recently was the medical director for A Woman's Concern, which oversees six anti-choice "crisis pregnancy centers" in Massachusetts and maintains a policy stating "that the crass commercialization and distribution of birth control is demeaning to women, degrading of human sexuality and adverse to human health and happiness." Is this the sort of man that YOU want making decisions about women's contraceptive and family planning options? Join NARAL Pro-Choice America in helping to stop Keroack from assuming this influential position. Sign the petition and send a message to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Mike Leavitt, urging him to reject Keroack's appointment now.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
