What We’ve Been Reading & Watching
Secretary Clinton: pro-woman, pro-children, pro-family, pro-choice… pro-global family planning funding!
Let’s start talking about reproductive health and climate change.
…and LOVE Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
This week, before a vote to defeat a terrible amendment that would have allowed all employers to deny health care coverage to their employees for just about any reason imaginable, several U.S. Senate Democrats spoke out to support women’s health.
Speaking of the Senate, we’re going to miss Senator Olympia Snowe… thank you, Senator Snowe, for your leadership & commitment to good governing.
For change to occur, our leaders must understand that there is not only strength in compromise, courage in conciliation and honor in consensus-building — but also a political reward for following these tenets. That reward will be real only if the people demonstrate their desire for politicians to come together after the planks in their respective party platforms do not prevail.
