FILIBUSTER: Estrada is on hold and he won't be seeing a vote in the Senate. Democrats say they have 44 of their 48 votes agreeing to a filibuster. They only need 41. It is about time we see some spine in the democrates on the hill. Let's hope this is the beginning of more action! We need answers on where judicial nominees stand on major issues such as the 1st Amendment and Roe v Wade, for Estrada not to answer basic positional questions is not acceptable.

Over 80% of women in the US have taken the pill since its inception, I can't fathom life without the pill or why men would not have wanted women to be sexually free. It is way more fun this way I am sure! Thank you Margaret Sanger, who decided there must be another way after experiencing her mother pregnant 18 times, have 11 children and 7 miscarriages. OUCH. But she had to fight for 50 years to see her dream of the pill to come true. Now that we can vote (1920), control conception (1960), and manage and control our own property (1975) it seems women have become complacent. There are still barriers, women need to speak up everytime something doesn't seem quite right, or misogynistic or unjust in any way. Just keep in mind that by letting comments and generalities go unchallenged, we buy into the philosophy that nothing can change, and more importantly, we miss a golden opportunity to educate our community and maybe, just maybe---change the way some people think about certain things. It's worth a try.
