On Earth Day, A Click Can Make All The Difference

posted by Catherine Connors

Today is Earth Day. I am, personally, feeling a little bit irritated with the Earth, the Earth being the source of the pollens that have attacked me and clobbered me into an allergy-ravaged mess, and so I am not feeling […]

Let’s Bring Compassion Into The Abortion Debate

posted by Catherine Connors

I don’t expect everyone to agree about abortion. I find it difficult enough, as someone who is emphatically pro-choice but deeply ambivalent about her own experience, to come to any clear terms (beyond believing that women’s freedom of choice must […]
