Bill M-312 - Abortion debate redux

This bill is going to be debated in parliament today. I hope that even some of the Conservatives can see what a bad idea this is and that this bill is stopped dead in its tracks today. But if it isn't, I just had to say something. To anyone, anywhere, if you are a woman, or you love a woman, whether it be a mother, wife, daughter or sister, you need to take action. Sign the petition, contact your MP, do whatever it takes. Because this is one fight women cannot afford to lose.

I have blogged before about the abortion debate, and I'm not going to rehash that now. Instead, how about another video? ;) This has been floating around the internet for awhile now and I've seen it a few places, but I think it's somewhat appropriate to the current situation since the rights of women seem to be under attack all over the world lately. All I can say is, we've come a long way baby, don't let them push us back down now.

Feminist Frequency on the Hunger Games

Well, I'll probably get around the second and third books eventually anyway. Gotta see how the story ends. But so wonderful to see such a strong heroine in such a popular movie. Even if she doesn't remain so for the next two.

Ocean Acidification

Very sobering stuff.
