Essential Estrogen: Stupak-Pitts Amendment: What you can do today

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

One of the most difficult things about writing this blog is the fact
that I'm not just providing news, but co-opting news with opinion. As
a long-term reporter who has had "just the facts" forever pushed into
my brain function, it's difficult to come to the keyboard with the
dual purpose of providing factual information and to issue a call to
action based on that information. But, as I told the women gathered in
Sioux City this weekend, there are times we have to step outside of
our comfort zones in order to stand up for things that we believe in
or to right a wrong. While I drove across Iowa on Saturday, members of
the U.S. House of Representatives voted on an unprecedented health
care reform bill. The good and bad news is all rolled up in one
sentence: It passed.
