Ah, I just read an article that explains the back brace in the photo. A lot of amazing women and men in Texas made their voices heard! Now if the US would just teach kids about contraception, which is a better approach to reproductive responsibility.

And in other news, the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act!
