    This is certainly eye-opening! It brought my husband and I to tears when we found out his father took a very prominent position in finance at Planned Parenthood about 10 years ago. Since then, he was let go but the emotional toll it took on our family, knowing he was involved in a company SO AWFUL was horrifying.

    Thank you for your blog and the great wisdom that you share! I am enjoying reading your posts and have much to learn from you! 🙂
