The philosophy of Women's Health Specialists is to promote positive images of women and provide our clients with a new perspective of their bodies and health. We give women the tools to evaluate their authentic health care needs - images of women not based on a societal myth, but based on women's reality and experience. We provide women with health information so they can become knowledgeable about their normal life stages. Our goal is to empower women through support, education, self-help and services so that they can make the best health care decisions for themselves.

And the impasse over that language now threatens to delay other Senate business, like confirming a new attorney general.
Those claiming the "pro-life" label have become increasingly flexible on how important it is to actually protect "life."
A young and scared pregnant woman walks into what looks like a medical clinic seeking help. When she says that she has a scholarship to start college and doesn't feel ready to be a parent, a staff person tells her that she's already a mother and college can wait.
