Check out Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richard's article on Huffington Post.  She discusses Obama's exemplary history of defending and protecting women's health care as well as McCain's rigid anti-women's health voting record.  Cecile also goes over what her mother, former Texas Governor Ann Richards, would have had to say about the role of women's health in the 2008 election.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  This is more of a comment than a diary. (3+ / 0-)

    Perhaps is should have been posted in an open thread. Otherwise you need to say more about the HuffPo article. check the FAQ.

  •  I wonder if we could add a category (2+ / 0-)

    "Bulletin Board" -- something that stays active all the time to direct people to information and articles, etc.  

    I don't get through the open threads all that much.  For example, I really don't care if the Celtics won.  I really don't even know who the Celtics are, but the open threads were full of this, which is fine.  

    But if Cecile Richards has a post or article that I'd like to read and someone doesn't have the time or skill or inclination to write a substantive diary on it, just a place like a bulletin board to direct me to the article would be greatly appreciated.

    Just a suggestion.  

    •  That's a great idea. (0+ / 0-)

      So often people post these "diaries" that are really just press releases.  Might be helfpul to have a separate section for that sort of thing, so we can be alerted to "breaking news" (which usually isn't -- what are we, CNN?)
