Do you know why students in Mississippi struggle with reading proficiency? Because moms work. That was the first answer this week’s Ignorant Legislator of the Week, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, gave when asked about mediocre educational outcomes at a Washington Post event.

Damn those breadwinning mothers! Perhaps the GOP is bored with the too general war on women and has decided to launch a war on working mothers as well. You can watch the exchange in the below video.

    I am still trying to frugie out how IVF has anything to do with abortions. I am not for abortions, only if the mother’s life is effected. I have been married now for 14 years and started trying to conceive 3 months after getting married (we had dated off and on for 9 years). We had many test done and treatments over the years before trying IVF. August 2005 was our first try and it did not work we tried several more times still nothing, Jan 2010 we tried again, they placed 3 day 3 embryo’s in hoping for 1, but nothing they were able to freeze the last 2 and Dec 17, 2010 we tranferred them. We found out Christmas we were pregnant, can you imagine how Blessed we felt?? 1 survived and grew for 38 weeks and born to us on my birthday, August 26, 2011 . Yes the best birthday present ever sits in my lap as I am typing this. She is a very healthy girl 8 pounds 10 ounces and 22 inches long at birth. If this Initiative 26 passes, I am not sure if Miracles like I have will exist. Please before you vote read more into this, its not just about abortions and they have left it pretty much open to what if’s and not exacts .it breaks my heart to think of all of the babies not surviving due to abortions especially after going through all we did to finally have ours but this is not what we need.Thank you and God Bless,Monica Korczak
