The FDA approved an H1N1 flu vaccine.

The National Latina Institute on Reproductive Health released a White Paper on Supporting Healthy Pregnancies, Parenting and Young Latinas’ Sexual Health, which “seeks to re-focus the conversation on young Latina mothers into one that comes from a reproductive justice perspective.”

Cara at The Curvature has a discussion of Mackenzie Phillips and the way her revelations of sexual abuse have been handled.

Renee at Womanist Musings links us
to a woman’s chronicling of her life with cerebral palsy.

Laura at Adventures of a Young Feminist talks about the recent episode of Glee and how it portrays women and pregnancy. A number of bloers have also written about the recent episode of Mad Men featuring birth and twilight sleep.

Amie at RH Reality Check has a piece on Senator Jon Kyl’s statement (re: health care reform) that he doesn’t need maternity care, and Senator Debbie Stabenow’s response that “I think your mother probably did.”

From Libraryland, a couple of posts on problems with Google Scholar. Also, over at Science & Sensibility (a blog on birth issues from Lamaze International folks), a post on getting to evidence that promotes librarians – “In my experience, librarians really know the tricks to get articles you might need.”
