Hey guys! Check out this great blog about the stigmas around mental illness. I find that this is another social issue that is benefited by exposure and educated conversation. It’s a great topic and there have been some very quality posts about the stigma, where it comes from, and steps to get rid of it. Enjoy!
As an 18 year old female at a prestigious, liberal arts university, abortion is a topic that I find not only relevant and important, but also crucial to the future of our country and its people. My pen name "CallJane" comes from an initiative in the 1970's called the Jane Collective. This was an underground service in Chicago that trained women in performing safe abortions and created a network for women to locate this service. This collective was created due to the increasing prominence of unsafe abortions that resulted from making abortion illegal in the United States. When a woman needed help, she was told to call Jane.
