My Birthday Fundraiser!

I’m trying to raise at least $860 for the Iowa Abortion Access Fund for my 43rd birthday, which is . . . TODAY! So far, folks have donated $425, so we’re halfway there. Please check out the link, donate and or share, and tell me how much you donated, so I can keep track of the totals! If you donate $43 or more, you’ll get a shout-out on Instagram!

Thank you all so much!

Today’s Read: “Why Abortion Doulas Matter”

“Why Abortion Doulas Matter, Even When We’re Just Showing Up” by Alice Markham-Cantor

I’m considering becoming an abortion doula. This is the first piece (and a powerful one at that) I’ve read that explains what it’s like. Weirdly, I forgot about the protestors. They’re the only factor that give me pause. But being there for a person who needs the procedure pulls at my soul, and I can tell this is something I need to do. It’s needed.
