It's hard to believe this coming Friday, just two days away, is the day our country will turn over the keys to him as he becomes the President of the United States of America. This is HYGGE (take a drink) people! Tremendous (take another drink)! Remember the drinking games people played during the debate season? At the time it was comical and scary to think this man could potentially be our next President. Well, we all know what happened next.
|I've named this cocktail Women's Rights. Bourbon, dark cherry and citrus with a splash of seltzer.|
As a woman I find him particularly offensive. This Saturday, the day after, I plan to attend the Women's March in NYC to support my firm belief that women in America in 2017 deserve the freedom to make their own health and medical decisions. I'm a huge supporter of Planned Parenthood. For many years I did not have health insurance as I lost my job with health benefits during the Recession. Things were rocky for a long time after that and paying an insane amount of money each month for health care wasn't an option. Planned Parenthood was my only option, and I'm so grateful that I could stay up-to-date with my health through their service.
We need to save Planned Parenthood from extreme supporters who clearly do not respect women's rights to manage their own health and reproductive decisions. Losing this service will be disastrous for women without other options. Defunding Planned Parenthood has serious implications for millions of women as noted here.
From healthcare to promoting the importance of higher education, us ladies need to stick together so our voice can be heard in unity to support each other. We need to promote our strength and not give up. This administration can not take away our freedoms.
