OK, I haven't been here in a while (or posted on my blog in a looooong while...) Does G+ have a way for posts from my blog to automatically post to my page? The Google account I use for the blog is not the same one I use for G+, so connecting my G+ account on the blog does not help (at least I didn't see the option to connect a different G+ acct than the one used for the blog.) Help?

Want To Discourage Abortion? Support Universal Health Care.

When conservatives are voicing their concerns on the subject of health care reform, one reason they don't want it is because it will subsidize abortions and supposedly make them more attractive. However, when you actually look at countries with universal health care you discover that the opposite is true. All of those countries have a notably lower abortion rate than the U.S.

When universal health care and a social safety net are in place, many of the factors which might otherwise influence a woman to choose abortion are removed. The net result is that the abortion rate goes down. That seems right in line with both conservative and liberal goals.

This article, written by a religious, conservative Republican, tells her story of going to Canada and discovering that her preconceptions about universal health care were backwards. I encourage people, particularly those opposed to the idea of universal health care, to read this and really think about it.

Thanks +Kristina Rae for the link.

Story
Tagline
... about wrandom thingss.
Introduction
... just another girl on a laptop.

Except, she's much more bossy and opinionated than those other girls, so watch out. She likes to rant about all sorts of things (though generally the topics include that radical notion that women are people, and that EVEN MOAR radical notion that trans women are people, too! Who'd a thunk it?!?) Be warned: Criss is proud to call herself a bleeding-heart, tree-hugging, pro-choice, hippie, Christian, socialist, liberal woman.
