imageThis is a great video and yes it is directed toward education and choices outside the US, it somehow is pretty timely with our own folks in Congress right now with this war on women’s healthcare.  She shares her own feelings too about how she chose when to start her own family. 

When the Komen/Planned Parenthood issue came up a few months ago this ugly topic surfaced and we saw our own supposedly educated and forward moving men in the US going backwards, over the same old topic and problem with men, “control”. One good thing here is that Melinda Gates draws the line and talks about how contraception and abortion are not the same. She was raised Catholic and plans to share this TED video with the nuns where she went to school. This is well worth the watch. BD
