Debbie Heald Sets Indoor 1500 Meter Record – 1972

Because I really don’t want to think about how Mr. Obama endorsed the Department of Health and Human Services overriding of the FDA’s conclusion that Plan B One Step could be sold safely without a prescription to “all females of child-bearing potential” and because I also don’t want to think about how he, Ms. Magazine’s *feminist* President, invoked his two daughters (his fatherhood) in the same breath as,

“And as I understand it, the reason Kathleen made this decision was she could not be confident that a 10-year-old or an 11-year-old going into a drugstore should be able — alongside bubble gum or batteries — be able to buy a medication that potentially, if not used properly, could end up having an adverse effect. And I think most parents would probably feel the same way.”

without even bothering to maybe suggest that it’s horrific to think that there IS A NEED for a 10 or 11 year-old female child to be buying emergency contraceptive medication INSTEAD OF bubble gum and that if a little girl is looking for this product then probably her “parents” are maybe not all that interested in and/or unable to protect her well-being in the first place and THEN do the FEMINIST work of demanding the nation seriously consider what might be done to eradicate this need, I’ve decided to post this video instead:

Debbie if you run into this (and I hope you do), I was the little curly-haired girl who used to play in the long jump pit at practice way back then. I always admired you for your kick, but today I admire you more for your strength.
