I would like to see a renewed commitment to restoring the reproductive rights movement in OK and the nation (not by you all at PP, etc, but by the rest of us who have sat back too long). Please let me know of any such activity.

A friend in SF says they are having a panel (all women, unlike on Cable TV) to discuss the future.

Ditto to what Rena said.

Dr. Tiller preformed a 2nd trimester abortion on me when my baby was not forming lungs due to a birth defect. I had to leave my doctor and go to Kansas since my state in still in the dark and would not let my doctor d0 the surgery. I watched on a sonogram as they injected the heart with a saline solution and there was no flinch or jerk. It just stopped. I have always been grateful for Dr. Tiller that I had the choice I had and was able to let my baby die without pain and never knowing the touch of a mother. It was one of the toughest decisions I ever made and the staff was wonderful and so supportive unlike the jerks demonstrating outside that knew nothing of what I was going through. My baby was a wanted pregnancy that just wasn't meant to be! I am pro-choice and will always be pro-choice. I am so sorry for his death. I'm thankful he allowed me to have my choice and didn't have to carry a baby 18 more months knowing it would die as soon as it tried for it's first breath!
