Guess who?

For the longest time, I UTTERLY FAILED at my attempts to log in and update here. But HUZZAH, my login, she works again!

Hey LJ world, is anyone still out there? I'm going to go stalk people's journals now, but if you're there, and you're on dreamwidth or whatever now, let me know so I can go poke you!

You know, as I was getting ready this morning, I was thinking to myself. "Hmm.. all the news has been about the election or the economy; not a word on the Bush administration's actions in the past few weeks other than the bailout. I wonder what they're getting away with while no one is paying attention."

No need to wonder any longer.

Yet another anti-choice 'rule'.

Maybe it's because of my background and career aspirations, but I find this particularly offensive. If you want to be doctor and don't want to perform elective abortions, DON'T GO INTO OB/GYN. If you ARE an anti-choice ob/gyn, WHY are you being such a pisser about referring your patients to someone else? Is it really OK for you to put your own values above the patient's needs to the point of NOT PROVIDING THEM WITH INFORMATION? According to the Bush Administration, it is. GIVE THEM A NAME, you TOSSER. Then there's the pharmacists who refuse to dispense prescriptions based on religious beliefs. DON'T BECOME A PHARMACIST if your religious beliefs prevent you from doing your job.

And don't get me started on this obscene Colorado Amendment that's trying to define life as beginning at conception. This would, of course, make ALL abortion, as well as the morning-after pill, murder. I wonder if 'abortion to preserve the mother's life' would be defined as 'justifiable homicide'. Probably it would just be homicide, since we're all just walking uteruses, waiting to be blessed with God's grace and fulfill our divine purpose as baby incubators. *fumes*

Hmm. *looks around*

Did someone give me an LJ gift certificate? I was just poking at my account settings for the first time in... ever, really, and noticed I have some 'residual' money from a gift certificate.

If it was you, plz let me know so I can say thank you and forgive me for not noticing sooner!
