The Pregnancy Pact

So I was watching this movie and about three or four 15yr old girls decided they would all get pregnant purposely. This was just so crazy to me because they were white and one of their parents was head of the PTA and was a firm believer in abstinence and not giving children condoms in school because it would "encourage sex".But sadly ironic because every day this happens in our communities girls and boys producing at young ages their parents aren't equipping them with the right tools to protect themselves in those kinds of situation. I think this movie shed alot of light on peer pressure and how important it is to make your children well rounded on all sex issues.

37 year mark

Yesterday marked 37 yrs of women having the right to choose thanks to the roe v. wade case. It was truly celebrated by myself and other rebels with a cause. It was cold and windy as it should be in the windy city but we sucked it up and stood together at the Thompson center cheering ho ho hey hey abortion will stay legal today. It was refreshing to see people show up and know that people have hope just as I do that women's rights will prevail even though things aren't looking so great in health care right now.So all that's left to say is we must keep up the good fight.

New Year!!!!

So the new year has arrived and I hope everyone is safe. As we dive into this new year I want us to continue fighting and advocating for our reproductive rights. Make sure we set aside time to volunteer when we can and support the MVMC leadership group. Your help will go a long way. We're all in this together and every decision affects all of us. Have a great year!!!!!
