DHHS comment deadline approaching!!

Instead of trying to rewrite this, I'll paste an email I received from a friend:

As most of you already know, on August 21st the Department of Health and Human Services released proposed regulations that could seriously undermine womens' access to reproductive health services, including birth control and abortion. The ACLU's Reproductive Freedom Project posted about it on the ACLU blog and Daily Kos, and sent out a web button to put on your sites (below) that sends readers' responses to HHS during the 30-day comment period that will be ending on September 25th.

So far, a partial list of blogs and online news sites posting the ACLU button and/or Action Alert includes BitchPhD, Daily Kos (several diaries), Digby, Feministing, Pandagon, RH Reality Check, and Shakesville. And barely halfway through the comment period, over 34,000 readers have contacted HHS through the ACLU button/Action Alert alone.

Please keep it up. Post on these regs and/or put up the ACLU button/Action Alert (below). Volume counts and the deadline for comments is September 25th.

Protect Birth Control

Well, what are you waiting for! Click and comment!

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
