  •  Thank you. No I had not heard of this (5+ / 0-)

    site and yes I will do that.

    I got an email from a staffer in Senator Udall's office telling me this editorial is circulating on the Hill, I surprise to me if its true. I have gotten only positive feedback so far.

    Your blueprint fits me. I got an education, travelled, married, got a steady job and then had kids. My kids are infinitely better off having waited till later to be born.

    I blog on healthcare issues for Tikkun Daily as Lauren Reichelt.

    •  Great! I Am Glad That You Will Visit This Site. (5+ / 0-)

      I hope you decide to share your experience on this site as well. Many other women have and I think you will feel relieved in their company. Again, it is so important that women like you somehow summon up the courage to speak out about your experiences, given the constant assaults from all directions from the antis.

      Of course I am not in anyway saying that a woman is "obligated" to share something personal that is not anyone else's business. If she wants to keep it to herself, I did not mean to imply that she is "not courageous" in my statement above. But when women such as yourself finally do stand up and not allow the antis to "dominate the stage" with all of their self-righteous rhetoric; this is so refreshing!

      Thank you again so much. I wish that more women would do the same. I am so sick of the antis' lies continually going unanswered.
