Sacred work

I read this post, The Audacity of Goodness, on several websites yesterday, and I found the video that it refers to -- Every day, good women choose abortion -- to be very moving. Take a look.

I'm afraid that my fertile years are now past, but if I needed to have an abortion in my lifetime, I only hope that I would be privileged to have had a provider as kind and considerate as this one.

Also, I love this quote that is mentioned at the end of the article:
“If one woman told the truth about her life, the world would split open.”
--Muriel Rukeyser
Very, very true.

About truthtelling and women: you should read a book called The Mask of Motherhood by a New Yorker who now lives in Perth named Susan Maushart. Amazing book about truthtelling and motherhood. Made me realise I wasn't alone - great insights. I highly recommend it. And after you finish that one, read her book Wifework.
