Being pregnant is not as easy as my sister [Kourtney Kardashian] made it look or as my mom [Kris Jenner] has made it look…. It’s a little painful. I’ve gotten sick a couple times. It’s getting a little bit more difficult [to get around]. I like to be active but, I’ve been chilling out. I [...]

I can’t handle shots anymore. And I always think of the next day: If I’m hungover, how am I going to take care of Lorenzo? I had a hangover once, three months after I had him. It was bad. I wanted to kill myself. Never again….
I’m so over partying…. My pregnancy changed the way I view things. It’s not all about being stupid and going out. It’s about family and making memories and working hard. I take everything more seriously….
Olympic skier Bode Miller is embroiled in a bitter fight with ex-girlfriend Sara McKenna over the custody of their month-old son, and things are getting ugly. McKenna is telling the world that the gold medalist once pushed her to have an abortion. It’s one of the reasons she says the new papa shouldn’t get custody [...]
I am deeply concerned that you are contributing to a very high probability that your fetus will die or your child will incur brain damage if born alive. At this time, you must come in for delivery. I would hate to move to the most extreme option, which is having law enforcement pick you up [...]

A baby fills your life. ~ Actress Jennifer Garner Family is a wonderful thing. It doesn’t mean that you can’t do other stuff with your life. In fact, having a family makes things you have that much richer. It’s much nicer to share it with people you love. ~ Actor Ben Affleck The two have [...]
I blogged last week about a Ms. Magazine article lamenting how difficult it is for “young women of color” to get abortions. The author used the story of her 14-yr-old cousin to demonstrate the trouble an adolescent has getting a clandestine abortion. Never once did Ms. or the author worry about how the girl got pregnant.
I used Planned Parenthood’s own statistics to show the younger the pregnant mother, the more likely it is she is a victim of rape or incest. Bottom line: Abortion covers up child rape.
I received an amazing email from Anna, who gave me permission to post her story and her name. It is Anna when she was 13 years old in the photo above, with her newborn daughter Josey. Here is their powerful story:

Anyone else feel like it really is a tide that is turning these days? The American College of Nurse Midwives issued a statement in support of working towards quality, competent care for trans and gender non-conforming people. Woo-hoo! ~ Radical Doula Miriam Zoila Pérez, January 17, excited over a recent statement issued by ACNM that [...]
