I admit, I don't follow matters of non-gay political import as closely as I should. I knew there was some brouhaha coming with the whole Obamacare thing; but if you asked me to lay out the specifics of what was actually being voted on by the Supreme Court, all I could say would be "healthcare or death."

So happy Healthcare Day, bois & grrlz. Let's all celebrate by getting abortions. Even if you're not pregnant. It's all about preventative care, right?
