Thank you President Fire Thunder!

In a very courageous move Cecilia Fire Thunder, the president of the Oglala Sioux in South Dakota has declared that she will open a Planned Parenthood clinic on reservation land. There's a lot of history behind the relations between native Americans and the government over reproductive freedom (forced sterilizations were a government policy at one time) so she speaks from a place of more authority than most. I admire her for standing up for women at a time when most people are running from this issue.

If you're interested in sending her a message of support, Bitch Ph.D. has all the necessary info.
