Woman Up

This certainly has been an interesting week.  Not only has the Komen Foundation gotten caught pulling a "shifty" but their attempt at "recovery", pardon the pun, from the Planned Parenthood flap has really left most women thinking.  And thinking hard.  In some ways, I'm glad it happened.  It just goes to illustrate how even women who've had breast cancer (Nancy Brinker) can let their politics get in the way of their supposed Race for the Cure.

Personally, I'm pissed.  Keep your politics out of women's health care.  And that goes for birth control, mammograms, breast cancer surgery, and abortion.  If you aren't for women, you're against them, and it's just that simple.  Open your mind and your heart.  While by the grace of God you may never need any of these services, there are thousands of other women who will.  Have their back.  As another woman, you OWE it to your fellow female to love, care, and support her.  If you don't, no one else will.  And someday, that just might be you, or someone you love, who is in need.  Woman Up.
