Guidelines for keeping your cervix healthy might have changed since your last visit to the gyno. Here’s what’s recommended:

Your first Pap test at age 21 (no matter what age you start having sex)
A Pap test every three years
Call your local health center to find out if you’re due for a Pap test.

As important as it is adorable.

No, women’s personal, complex decisions about abortion are actually NOT like buying a car or carpeting.

It’s not complicated. If you don’t understand women’s health, don’t try to regulate it.

Making abortion illegal doesn’t stop abortions.
It stops SAFE abortions.

"At 16 weeks we found out the baby I was carrying had Trisomy 18, a chromosomal defect that is incompatible with life.  It was after much soul searching and with a heavy heart that after talking with my husband, family, rabbi and doctor that I decided to have an abortion. I thought long and hard about that decision, but once it was made my will never faltered.  An additional 72 hour wait, extra ultrasounds, mandatory videos would not have changed my mind, they would have just caused me more pain than I was already going through,” said Liz Read-Katz of Mid-Missouri. 

Let’s be clear: This is about politics, not about women’s health.HB 1613 is an extreme bill that forces women to endure a mandatory ultrasound and receive inaccurate medical information, as well as triple Missouri’s mandatory waiting period, senselessly forcing abortions later in pregnancy and putting women’s health at risk. It’s political intrusion at its worst.

We can’t believe we actually have to say this, but just to clear it up: Women’s personal, complex decisions about abortion are NOT like buying a car or carpeting.

Missouri, tell your legislators that enough is enough: http://bit.ly/1efUdeF
