Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving, we are giving thanks for four more years of Obama, and in particular we are thankful for the preservation of safe and legal abortion; for the trend toward marriage equality; for contraceptive coverage by health insurance companies; for the continued existence of Planned Parenthood (ditto Big Bird); and for a moratorium on old, white, anti-science, Republican dudes who think pregnancy from rape is a gift from God. We’ll be taking a break from this site for the rest of the week to appreciate all that we (still) have to be thankful for in this country. In the meantime, but sure to check out our Thanksgiving Issue: Love in the Time of Turkey for everything you need to survive this holiday — except the recipes! We’ll be back to our regular schedule on Monday.
