So much changed in a year (TW: Pregnancy and Pregnancy loss mentioned)

I haven't posted in a few months, and I'm not sure if anyone here even recognizes me anymore. I've missed GT during my social media hiatus, and look forward to reemerging from my pregnancy & new mom hiatus.

Louisiana Abortion Restrictions to Close All But 2 Clinics

If you haven't heard, my home state is about to pass legislation that will close almost all of the abortion clinics in our state (just awaiting our dipshit governor's signature).
