I read a recent diary by diane101 about hope and it motivated me to find at least one positive event and diary it.
And to my delight I found this:
Evangelical Doctor to Leave FDA Advisory Panel

Dr. W. David Hager, appointed to the FDAs’s Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee after ardent opposition from women’s reproductive health and rights groups, including the Feminist Majority, told the Lexington Herald-Leader that he will no longer be on the advisory committee after June 30.

The rest of the story is here

The article references the expose in the Nation that brought to light allegations of rape from Hager’s ex-wife.

It also mentions the attempt of Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Patty Murray (D-WA) to  force a closer look at the process that led to the denial of otc status to emergency contraceptive Plan B. Please take a moment to write/call or email support to both Senators and then, take a moment to smile a little. It may be only a baby step but still, even a baby step in the right direction is worth a smile.
