This is seriously excellent ladies but what the HELL was going on in 1991
. The numbers are the lowest since the 1940s. Wow!
We're still higher and we can close this gap with a bigger push towards mentoring and education. We also have to make sure that we keep the republicans from blocking reproductive rights initiatives. My fear is that all the fear mongering, shaming, threatening and closing planned parenthoods, cutting programs etc will cause all of these numbers to skyrocket again!
