The United Nations Population Fund is stepping up their efforts to save mother's lives.
This article about new mothers taking anti-lactation medication meant for HIV women for "social reasons" pisses me off for two reasons. One - the title is "Breastfeeding mothers taking anti-lactation drug meant for HIV women in a bid to maintain their figures" (emphasis mine). While many women are using the drug for convenience, no where in the article does it mention women who want to "maintain their figures". Two - While I do agree that "breast is best" and don't love the idea of using drugs without a real medical need, it's kind of shitty to shame women who do not choose to nurse.
Reminder: Dr. Laura is still an asshole.

PLAN B: Single Women Choosing Motherhood -- Don't let the name fool you, this documentary is not about Emergency Contraception. It's the story of women who enter single motherhood by choice and also features the point of view of sperm donors and grown children of single mothers.
And what better way to honor a mother you love than with a gift in her name to Planned Parenthood Federation of America?
