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
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.
