Kidlet and I at a pro-choice rally in Richmond a few weeks ago.
There’s another one tomorrow that I’m really disappointed I can’t make. The illustrious state of Virginia (the Board of Health, anyway) instituted some regulations a few weeks back that could put around 80% of the states abortion providers out of business. The rally tomorrow is to show Governor McDonnell that Virginia is a pro-choice state, and we’re pissed. LISTEN UP MCDONNELL. (I’ll interject here that one of the great weaknesses of Virginia is that governors can only serve one term at a time. So a governor really has no vested interest in keeping constituents happy – they’re done at the end of their four years. Makes it pretty hard, in my opinion, to put any pressure on the position.)
We’re on an impromptu vacation in the outer banks of North Carolina – what are you all up to this weekend?
