When I moved 1,200 miles with my family from Connecticut to Florida I didn’t think the political culture would bother me much. I am extremely liberal, and I don’t think living in a different part of the country is going to change my beliefs. But one thing I have discovered is a lack of fairness when it comes to state sponsored license plates. (I am sure there are other issues, but this is the first to get under my skin.)

As everyone knows, I took over the Managing Editor position on The Broad Side during the first full week of February. I have been having an absolute ball working on the site more than just contributing a couple articles here and there. The caliber of women who have been contributing content has been off the charts, and the re-launch of the site has been better than any of us could have imagined.
But along with all the duties I have there, I have been contributing a ton of posts as well. We are working hard on building a budget to be able to pay our writers like they deserve as well.

I am a mother of three, one child which was very unplanned and unexpected, abortion was never and has never been an option for me. (more…)
You are a pregnant women going through all of your routine prenatal testing and along the line your provider finds a life threatening fetal abnormality that could be fatal to you, or your unborn child. And they overlook it and don’t notify you of it.
Sounds like a scene from a bad movie right? (more…)
I think sometimes when you proclaim you are strongly pro-choice stereotypes are born. I have heard all varieties of judgement while having children and keeping my strong beliefs, I am not surprised about it though.
Yesterday my friend Courtney, One Bored Mommy wrote a really deep and heart felt post about a miscarriage she suffered and I started thinking about the beginning of my third pregnancy. The pregnancy which thankfully produced a healthy and beautiful little girl.
I think Courtney has become such a good friend of mine because we balance each other out on so many different levels. Just reading her post and what she has to say I am sure you will be able to see that for yourself. She is like the ying to my yang.
By the end of her post I was in tears which is expected when you are reading about such a hard topic to discuss. She said it best… (more…)
