TRUST WOMEN



“Trust women” was Dr George Tiller’s motto. Dr. Tiller dedicated his life to providing women with health care. This weekend was the 6t year anniversary of his murder by anti abortion terrorists. I knew about him, but it was not until tonight that I ever heard his motto.

Trust women. It blows my mind that we live in a world where that is not the case, where certain men think they know better than a woman about what she needs.

There is a current story on the internet right now about a guy posting a photo of a woman breast feeding her child (breast feeding is a federally protected right, posting a photo of a minor without permission in illegal) and writing a shaming rant. Excruciating. We still have such a long way to go.

I love men. Men are great. The breed of men out there who still think that they have some say over women’s bodies need to grow up, and surrender. I am sorry is you are afraid and weak, but that doesn’t give you permission to try to dominate. It is hard to be on the losing team and on the wrong side of history, but we all have challenges we have to face with dignity, it is am opportunity to grow our character, to act right, to be our best. Deal with your pain. No one has the right to go around hurting others just because they feel insecure.

I want to live in a world where women are in charge of their bodies. We should not need to say trust women, or respect women, because it should be a given. In the meantime, I am loving Dr. Tillman’s motto, which shows his sensitivity and wisdom. Trust women, a mind-blowing concept, and yes, of course. Thank you Dr. Tillman. Peace to your family and loved one’s on this anniversary. 

speaking of which , in 1975 the UN declared that year "international woman's year"....
