I am very guilty of overusing the word “awesome.” I attribute “awesome” to all kinds of things that are sometimes mediocre at best. But do you know what was TRULY AWESOME? What actually inspired awe in me? Ilyse Hogue’s speech at the DNC. It was historic, bold, and the most radical speech of either political convention this year. Ilyse is the President of NARAL Pro-Choice America and one of the leading voices on not just reproductive rights, but all civil rights for women. She shared with me her expertise on the Hyde Amendment and her personal experience with her own abortion.
