Miwoks, Old Movies, and Other Things That Aren't Zombies



I've been hiking with the kids, took them to Jr. Rangers where we learned about the local Native Americans who once lived here, reorganized the bookshelves, made a care package for one of my step daughters, am organizing a craft/tea party for my sister and all the young ladies in our lives, volunteered to do Thanksgiving here, introduced the twins to Ginger Rogers and Fred Astair and countless other things that aren't related to writing my NaNoWriMo novel. Can anyone say "procrastination?"

Oh yeah, not to mention Facebook and writing this blog post.

Planned Parenthood Director Quits

Planned Parenthood Director Quits After Watching Abortion On Ultrasound

Abby Johnson is my new hero! How many people are willing to admit they've had a change of heart and are willing to make a MAJOR life change? Most of us walk around with a nagging conscience eating away at us for years. Not Abby. She quit her job when she realized it was wrong.

Not only did she realize that abortion was cruel to an unborn baby, but she saw that abortion is big business, not just some politically correct amorphous banner.

From its beginning, Planned Parenthood was not a business to be admired. Its founder, Margaret Sanger was a racist beyond measure. Even today, the statistics are horrible. Though only 14% of the women in the U.S. are African American, over 35% of all abortions are performed on African American women. That is a tragedy. Every abortion is a tragedy- for the baby, for the mother, for the father.

Here are some links if you need some help and/or healing:
