Great piece, especially the clear data and links. (I just published my own pre-Roe abortion story on Illumination.) We HAVE to change this country's direction. Vote, build, fight. Can't believe I'm doing this still. Again. Thanks, thanks.

I love this! Have known several Hash House Harriers though I never was (good enough to be) one. But I did run my first - & last - marathon at the ripe age of 72, & now you've inspired me to turn it into a Medium piece. Thanks, for good piece & inspiration.

Eloquently told. I published a book inspired my pre-Roe rape & abortion 10 years ago, despite my agent saying "Nobody's interested in this today." Now, watching us return to those dark days is heartbreaking. You've inspired me to write my story once again, for Medium. Thanks for this fine piece.

Excellent piece. I work however I can just to get my fellow Americans to listen to one another & try to return to civility & reason. But it's hard! Having lived thru the last world war, I just hope it doesn't take another catastrophe to bring us together.
