Pondering the end of the Missouri legislative session…

A bitch read this commentary on the end of the legislative session in Missouri on StLToday.com and thought I’d share it with y’all.

Sigh.

‘Twas indeed a session of wasted opportunities…so sad and so true.

Eleven pieces of prevention legislation died this session...legislation that would have meant cervical cancer immunizations and comprehensive sex-education...that would have protected consumers trying to fill prescriptions for birth control at pharmacies and prevented unintended pregnancies in the state.

Sigh again.

Dust self off…focus eyes on prize…and begin the struggle again...
