It’s Veterans Day so I’m reminding myself (and others who need it) that our female vets are in need of gender specific health care upon returning home from combat; Sarah Palin and the Tea Party want less government – unless it has to do with abortion restrictions; a drug manufacturer of breast cancer treatment drugs adds cancer-causing agents to its drugs; and anorexic women face more unplanned pregnancies than do women who don’t suffer from the disorder.
