My Planned Parenthood: The Carnival Collection

graphic reading My Planned Parenthood: Our Voices. Our Stories. Our Planned Parenthood. www.whattamisaid.com wwww.shakesville.com #MyPP

As you might have noticed, ahem, today was the My Planned Parenthood Carnival, which I co-hosted with Tami of What Tami Said. The hub for the carnival, at which links to all the other participating blogs can be found, is here. There is so much good reading there!

And, naturally, submissions posted at own blogs are still being accepted.

Shakesville ran My Planned Parenthood Stories all day, too, of course, and here is the full collection, in case you missed any of them:

Angie: Planned Parenthood Saved My Life

Deeky: Today's Visit

Elizabeth in Chicago: A Simple Story

Liss: Like a Trusted Friend

K: Forever Grateful

Portly Dyke: The Radical Notion of Choosing Parenthood

Sonia: Thank You

Lili: I Can Trust Planned Parenthood

Vanshar: About the Menz

koach: For My Sister

Fannie: Healthier

Tenya: I Turned to Planned Parenthood

Teaspoon: Planned Parenthood Was There

Talonas (Lt. Chubbins): Better Parents

Gretchen in Washington: My Life's Backdrop

Mustang Bobby: A Part of My Life for Fifty Years

M: Planned Parenthood Saved My Daughter

My profound thanks to Tami, who is just a total rock star, to everyone who participated, and to everyone who sent private notes of thanks, encouragement, and support.

This isn't an end; this is just a beginning. There were be more carnivals to come—and I hope that they get increasingly bigger, louder, wilder, until we are making such a grand cacophony of clattering teaspoons that we can no longer be ignored.

My teaspoon. My voice. My choice. My Planned Parenthood.
