(Our anniversary was
a very happy day. But the
news that came out
about Roe v. Wade
being overturned that
day was devastating.)
This is the little painting I did for a Happy Anniversary card for Steven.
It’s been a complicated weekend emotionally. I am overjoyed to be
celebrating my happy marriage. We’ve had a beautiful time despite
the fact that I’m still recovering from whatever bug hit me last week.
And today is my friend Georgia’s birthday and I wish her the happiest day.
I can’t ignore and don’t want to what’s happening in our neighbouring country
south of the border. The women of the United States have been betrayed by
their own Supreme Court, which on Friday overturned Roe versus Wade and
the right to a safe, legal abortion.
This has happened in a country that will not eliminate assault weapons so that
people shopping for groceries, and little children in school will be safe from
being murdered. I am heartbroken, and will do whatever I can as a Canadian
to help my neighbouring country's women.
If you have women friends, and you talk to them seriously about their lives,
I'd predict that the majority have either had an abortion or taken the morning
after pill. We have been so lucky to have that right. And in Canada we still do.
Every woman deserves the right to choose.
Have a making a difference day.
