To those that seek to control women's reproductive healthcare, while they abandon the children we bear.

This is my contribution to the fight against the war on women. I had no idea how hard this would be, but I put my furor to work putting together a flash mob.

I thought, flash mob. It looks so fun, and entertaining, and the possibilities are far greater than the one moment of performance. It can be taped and edited to be a good performance art piece.

It can live beyond the moment by going viral.

I knew the song I wanted to use. Every Sperm Is Sacred. Sounds easy, but it did not have the message I wanted to use. So I revised the lyrics to be inclusive of all faiths, and instead, to focus on the legislators that are effecting our lives so profoundly.

Please indulge me and watch it if you can. If you like it, I am asking that you email it, Facebook it, Twitter it, Tumblr it (whatever that is exactly) and generally help me make it go viral.

I am really bad at Tags and making sure things are set to come up more easily on the net, and more frequently on searches. If any of you geeks want to help me I would be so grateful.

In the meantime....

This is the blurb that is included on the youTube page.

I am so excited because I have video of a little protest in front of the Capitol building in Colorado. It is wonderful to know that we have legislators making sure that all our potential children are born into this world no matter what happens to them afterwards. I am proud to know, that although they used to be thought of as "the fringe", they are now in legislatures all over the United States. But I would like to take this one step further.
I mean Eve took the first bite of the fruit of knowledge, but she was naive and Adam was supposed to know better. He was tempted by her. Men are tempted by women and they just can't help themselves. So, we need to monitor the comings and goings of man's most precious bodily fluids.
Face it girls, we are just the "nest" so to speak and men have the "swimmers". They are the ones to start life. If we can track them, then we wouldn't have so many good men go off track. I'll bet Newt Gingrich and John Edwards would not be in the situation they are in if they had been monitored by the government. We want to make sure all children are wanted and born into the union of two people, one of which (the woman) stays home to care for them. Then we would have a lot less children of unknown heritage walking around and maybe less criminals too.
Just my two cents, take it or leave it.
If you want to organize your own flash mob, or use the music, please feel free to go to my website or to my Facebook Page.

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.

    Thanks so much for organizing and sharing

    As of 02/22/2012 in Washington State pharmacists can exercise their "religious freedom" by denying women access to Plan B because the judge thinks there aren't any bigots in this state.

    Every Sperm Is Sacred

    There are Jews in the world.
    There are Catholics.
    There are Hindus and Mormons, and then,
    There are those that follow Mohammed,
    And, we could be any of them.

    I'm a woman, like your mother,
    And have been since before I was born,
    And the first thing they tell every woman is
    You should be ready to spawn.

    You don't have to be a Madonna.
    You don't have to have a great brain.
    You don't have to have any clothes on, at all.
    Your body is only meant for offspring.
    Because...  

    Every sperm is sacred.
    Every sperm is great.
    If a sperm is wasted,
    The State gets quite irate.

    Every sperm is sacred,
    Every sperm is great,
    If a sperm is wasted,
    The State gets quite irate.

    Let the heathens spill theirs,
    On the dusty ground.
    The State shall make them pay for
    Each sperm that can't be found.

    Every sperm is wanted.
    Every sperm is good.
    Every sperm is needed
    In your neighborhood.

    Mother: You will cut the funding
    of our children’s share,
    but God loves those who treat their
    semen with more care.

    Every sperm is sacred.
    Every sperm is great.
    If a sperm is wasted,
    The State gets quite irate.

    Every sperm is wanted.
    Every sperm is good.
    Every sperm is needed
    In your neighborhood!

    Every sperm is useful.
    Every sperm is fine.
    The state needs everybody's.
    Male: Mine!
    Male: And mine!
    Male in a striped convict suit : And mine!

    Choir: Let the sinners spill theirs
    O'er mountain, hill, and plain.
    The State shall strike them down for
    Each sperm that's spilt in vain.

    Everyone: Every sperm is sacred.
    Every sperm is good.
    Every sperm is needed
    In your neighborhood.

    Every sperm is sacred.
    Every sperm is great.
    If a sperm is wasted,
    The State gets quite iraaaaate!

    You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. -Mae West
