Women for Obama celebrate: abortion, fashion, and social justice

While filming the election night celebrations on the streets of Chicago, I interviewed several women who were among the large group gathered on State Street.

The first group of people I came across were cheering for abortion. When I questioned the woman in the group, she said that abortion was one of the things she felt she was getting with an Obama win, along with birth control, gay rights and women’s rights. Another woman I interviewed said “we’re not all going to die, because we’re arts students,”  while her companion added, “fashion is not dead!”:

Another woman celebrating Obama said the most important issues to her were “social justice, class equality, and the fact that people have to pay their own way.”

These were the women who were the target markets for the “vagina ads” the Obama campaign put out in the final weeks leading up to Obama.

    I think everything wrote made a bunch of sense.
    However, what about this? what if you composed a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean Women for Obama celebrate: abortion, fashion, and social justice | rebelpundit is a little plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s
    front page and see how they write news headlines to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing,
    and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m
    very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.

    But, consider this, what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean Women for Obama celebrate: abortion, fashion, and social justice | rebelpundit is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they
    create article titles to get viewers to open the links.

    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

    An abortion is a procedure to end a pregnancy. It uses medicine or surgery to remove the embryo or fetus and placenta from the uterus. The procedure is done by a licensed health care professional. The decision to end a pregnancy is very personal. If you are thinking of having an abortion, most healthcare providers advise counseling.”`..”

    taboo matter but generally people do not talk about such topics.
    To the next! Cheers!!
