Where my girls at?

By now, we've all heard about Todd Akin's asinine thoughts on rape and reproduction, and I think we all agree that they were outrageous, uneducated, and wrong. But, on the very small bright side, they have at least invigorated the discussion about women's reproductive rights in America. 

Why is it so important to the government to control women's reproductive systems? Please seriously think about that. I understand that it takes two to tango (that's slang for SEX), but legislation around contraception and abortion is used to control, very specifically, women's bodies and choices. In a country whose female representation in government is abysmal, it's incredibly important for voters to understand this.  

If this is something that is as important to you as it clearly is to me, I hope you vocalize it. If you need some ideas on how to start, check out this list from Women's Health Magazine's website. Or, you can just make a sign using a box of Crayola crayons and computer paper and then instagram the shit out of it (see above).
