Speaking of dumb.
At Planned Parenthood’s annual gala last night, attendees and your PULSEr stopped laughing at comedian and emcee Tig Notaro just long enough to watch Nancy Pelosi receive the Margaret Sanger award for her work defending abortion rights. In her acceptance speech, Pelosi slammed abortion opponents, especially criticized the “personhood” laws some of them are pushing and said the struggle for reproductive rights will continue whatever SCOTUS decides on the contraception mandate.
“When you see how closed their minds are or oblivious or whatever it is — dumb — then you know what the fight is about,” Pelosi said. “Whatever happens with the court…we must remember these battles will not be the end of the fight,” she added. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was also awarded.
Happy Friday, devoted PULSE readers. It’s great and all that the administration has achieved 6 million enrollees, but I can think of a whole lot of things I’d like that many of. Like 6 million more reporters on our health team or 6 million more hours of sleep. Or just 6 million more degrees on the thermometer. Have a great weekend.
