But wait, there's more Roe!

Yesterday I took a big chance and posted on the Chicago Moms Blog about the Roe anniversary. I say big chance not because I think our readers are all anti's, but just because I felt my post was about moms who have abortions. Somehow I felt it might hit a few bad chords. Of course, I only got positive feedback:
Speaking as someone who currently has a single child (born when I was 35), and had an abortion (at 18), all I can say is that I, personally, found the abortion emotionally difficult, but I suspect nothing like as difficult as knowing a mixed-race (and thus hard to adopt) child of mine was out there in the world somewhere, blood of my blood, sibling to my daughter, growing up under who knows what kind of care. Reading birthmother blogs has made me aware of how incredibly traumatic it can be to give a child up for adoption, how much regret some women feel. Until you make that choice, you don't know how it will affect you. ~ Mary Anne Mohanraj
There seems to be less and less wrong with Kansas. The Wichita Eagle Editorial Department Blog says flatly, " Stop taking pictures of Tiller patients."

The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice wants to know how you learned about sex. If you haven't heard of them, believe me, they're cool. So take a second, fill out their survey, and then ask your friends to do the same.

See what other bloggers said on Blog for Choice day. Maybe some of them actually did the assignment and blogged about voting.

You should also, ok, you must check our Alternet's Reproductive Justice & Gender section including Jill Filipovic's 10 Reasons to Support Reproductive Justice Today piece.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. 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. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

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
