Here is the irony: her goal was to have children and that was a sad event for her.

She went through lots of things to have children but finally was able to have the two wonderful girls that I love so much. Birth and reproduction is so much more complicated than any of these idiots understand and they really do not care to. IT IS ABOUT CONTROLLING women. Always has been and always will be.

Well as a Feminist Texan who remembers and loved Ann and watched this

in Houston (where I lived at the time) "The National Women's Conference of 1977 was a four-day event during November 18–21, 1977, as organized by the National Commission on the Observance of International Women's Year. The conference drew around, 2,000 delegates along with 15,000-20,000 observers in Houston, Texas. Wikipedia" I naively thought our state (and nation) surely would go forward to even more progressive actions. However, I completely under estimated the far right's hold on our oil based economy and the religious community's stranglehold on the concept of women as secondary human beings. Any person who participated in that conference who was fast forwarded to the present would be disgusted at what our state has become. The most progressive woman in our local Dem group labels me an optimist. Sadly no longer true.
