I am SO freaking tired of people legislating their PERSONAL beliefs! Just when I was thinking about how happy I was to live in Florida again (after WAY too many years in Mississippi) crap like THIS pops up! I'm with you, Lala, I might not personally have an abortion, but I certainly have no right to dictate the personal choices someone else makes.

This is definitely one of those times I need to actually contact my legislators...too bad, most of them are ultra-conservative...

A Few Rules of Running from Mark Remy:

1. You rarely regret the runs you do; you almost always regret the runs you skip.

2. Not everyone who looks fast really is, and not everyone who looks slow really is.

3. Running any given route in the rain makes you feel 50 percent more hard-core than covering the same route on a sunny day.

4. If you care even a little about being called a jogger versus a runner, you're a runner.

I know we don't get much into issues here, but if you're in Florida, you should know about this. Also, I know that opinions on abortion and Roe v Wade vary even among non-believers, but the bill in question just goes too far. As a person who isn't able to have children, I know that I would never have an abortion personally, but I am not arrogant enough to impose my will on other women's bodies.

Reposted from Liberal Atheist Hippies:

I'm just shaking, I'm so angry... I can only hope that there's no way this piece of drek will ever pass.

"An expansive measure to make most abortions illegal in Florida has been filed for the 2010 Legislative session, challenging federal protections in place for more than 40 years."

I've already sent an email to the right honorable Charles van Zant, and I'll be following up with snail mail tomorrow and mail to other Florida Legislature members as well.
