Quick ones like deciding to grab a granola bar or if I have time to make a fried egg for breakfast, or which Starbucks I would like to find joy in today. As the day goes on they get a little tougher.
If “Plan A” was not to get pregnant…”Plan B” was to use birth control…then what exactly is “Plan C”? A recent marketing strategy for abortion providers is to call the combo of drugs used for abortion “Plan C.” This is simply a rebranding technique to attract new customers.
