Supporting a freedom even if it's not on your top 10 list ...

OK, so I'm a conservative Libertarian, and not a huge supporter of abortion-on-demand (being of the "Safe, Legal, & Rare" camp on the subject). However, I found the following quite inspiring ...

To combat South Dakota's recent ban on virtually all abortions, a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, trained as a nurse, has begun the process to open up a fully-functional Planned Parenthood clinic on the grounds of the Pine Ridge Reservation (where the Religious Reich can't do squat about it).

This is the sort of grass-roots action for freedom that is a shining example to the rest of us ... it would be worthwhile to at least become conversant with the situation out there ... if not actually helping them out with some donations!
