And more, perhaps.
As some of you may already know, the regina mom has taken to occasionally performing at the local slam poetry event in Regina, Word Up Wednesday. This Wednesday, April 25, she will be there with new and old poems to share and be judged on. She would love to see friends in the audience!
As well, watch this space — and others in the Canadian Progressive Voices blogosphere and beyond — for a blogburst on Motion 312, the motion put forward by a religious zealot in the House of Commons. If passed M312 will re-open the abortion debate in Canada.
You can read more about the blogburst over at my friends’ place.
Starting today, all bloggers who support a woman’s right to choose can and should blog fiercely about this CONservative, regressive attack on women’s right to choose.
Rest assured, there will be many posts to read, covering many different angles on the issue — angles I hadn’t thought of before becoming active in the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada / Coalition pour le droit à l’avortement Canada and reading the multitude of materials available there.
If you haven’t already done so, please download, print and sign the petition in opposition to M312. As signatures roll in the petition will be presented to the House of Commons by various prochoice Members of Parliament over the next while. the regina mom managed to gather almost 20 signatures last night just by pulling it out of her purse! Someone else did all the work getting her friends to sign. Thanks for that, Karen!
And now I’m off to my sunshiny garden to contemplate what will be planted where this year.
