Here are some of the articles that I've read this week that I thought were particularly thought provoking, or worthy of mention.
Even More Terrible Things Are Happening to the American Girl Brand Than You Thought
This just makes me sad. I am a proud "Mama" to Samantha. I loved all of the "original" stories. It sounds like Mattel has sold out. Sad.

This is super fascinating!

Pro-Life Without God
Yes! Love this: "most arguments against abortion do not require the existence of a god."
