Advocacy for women

Last week a prominent politician made a false remark about rape and its consequences.  And then the media world blew up.

I, too, am astounded at this horribly false claim but, most of all, I’m disappointed that it points to a bigger problem: the lack of public knowledge concerning women’s health.  Although this man has made an enormous and public error (and has consequently been publicly corrected), the good to come is the attention it brings to sound medical knowledge and advocacy for women.

Violence towards women should never be tolerated.

I appreciate the ACNM’s response.
