Illinois action blog

Where we're heading with this blog...

First of all, we’d like to offer a huge THANK YOU to Veronica for pitching in right when we needed her most. Veronica did a tremendous job of blogging on our fight to open our Aurora health center and beyond. Her honest and insightful commentary will be sorely missed by the rest of our online team. Our only consolation is that she’s agreed to guest blog from time to time, so stay tuned for occasional updates from Veronica. And of course, if you need an immediate Veronica fix you can always hop over to Viva La Feminista.

Now that we can concentrate the brunt of our efforts in Aurora on providing critical reproductive health services to women and families, we’d like to take the opportunity to broaden the focus of this blog to address the larger issues of reproductive rights facing Illinois and the nation.

This doesn’t mean that we won’t still keep you updated on the situation in Aurora. As you know the opposition just doesn’t seem to be able to get over the fact that our health center is up and running. We will definitely continue to post updates specific to the Aurora center.

But (as Veronica has already done a great job of pointing out!) we’re fighting for reproductive rights on a lot of fronts. We saw pro-choice people around the nation come together and say “What happens in Aurora happens to ME.” We also know that what happens in Kansas and Manassas, Virginia and Springfield, IL, and Washington, DC happens to all of us as well.

For that reason we are officially rolling this blog into our Planned Parenthood Action Illinois statewide online advocacy program. While we may change the blog’s color scheme, most other things will stay the same. I hope you’ll stay involved with us through this blog, our email list, and through Myspace and Facebook. And I hope you'll stick with us as we continue to post updates, commentary and action alerts on our fight to protect reproductive rights for women in Aurora, Illinois, and everywhere else.
