This is the best thing I have seen in weeks.  An Arizona woman has knitted uteruses for Arizona legislators who have voted to allow employers to deny their employees birth control.  I sadly don't have time to write a real diary (and what could I add, its just perfect the way it is) but here is an excerpt of the letter that accompanied the uteruses.

I am amazed that you have taken it on to make personal health care decisions for all these women, without knowing anything about their individual circumstances. ....

A significant majority of adult women, have used contraception at some time in their lives, frequently within marriage, for a variety of reasons, without intervention of Congress. ....

Please treat the women in your life as the intelligent persons they are.

I provide you with a uterus. Please leave ours alone.

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.
