Well this IS a Health Blog
So check it. Kate Michelman is broke. This isn't a story of how she blew it all on cocaine and faberge eggs (although how awesome would it be if there was an E true Hollywood Story on leaders in the feminist movement). She got screwed by this country's shitty, shitty health care system. This is someone who was making well into the six figures as the head of NARAL and probably got some lucrative consulting contracts post-NARAL. On top of that, her husband was a college professor. And then one paralyzed daughter and a husband with Parkinson's and goodbye savings, house, and retirement. Seriously, people, its FUCKING TIME FOR SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE. If the former head of NARAL and her college professor husband get wiped out by a catastrophic illness, what are the chances for the rest of us?
