Back to the issues: Reproductive Health

I've had this burning question in the back of my mind.

Why hasn't Hillary Clinton submitted a completed questionnaire to RHReality Check?

Obama and Edwards did. But instead she sent a statement.

Is there any doubt about her stance on reproductive rights? For me, no. When I tally up all the pros and cons on each candidate, Clinton wins my vote on reproductive rights. And no, it's not because Obama voted present on a few bills in Illinois. It's more in line with the same reason I see a woman as my OB/GYN. I trust women with my girly parts.

So why, why, Hill, didn't you submit your questionnaire?

Edited to add: Ask and you shall receive! Thanks Hill.

I also want to add that you should not take the subject line as my way of saying that race & gender are not issues that our nation needs to deal with. What I find dumb is that we were having a national debate on whether or not LBJ deserved any credit for the civil rights movement, if even mentioning LBJ meant that Dr. King received less credit. It was a partnership. Dr. King got the grassroots active, pressured Congress & the White House, and we all got the Civil Rights Act signed. The splitting of hairs is what kept us off the real issues. Let's talk race & gender, but in a productive way. Game on.

Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre.

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
