Although it is probably just a form letter, I received a reply to my email to my local senator regarding Missouri Sex Education. It is as follows:

Dear Mr. Garwood:

Thank you so much for your e-mail about women's health issues. I truly appreciate the involvement and help of supporters.

As your mail requested, I do oppose HB 1055. In fact, I stood on the floor last week at length to point out a very similar bill's deficiencies and lack of solution.

Few things are as important to me as women's health, factual sex education and protecting reproductive rights. I hope you will also take a look at another bill I sponsored - SB 514 offering coverage for women who wish to get the vaccine against HPV (the leading cause of cervical cancer). web/Bill.aspx?SessionType=R&BillID=17408. I am thrilled to announce that it passed committee unamimously. I am hopeful that this bill will come before the full Senate soon.

My dedication to this fight is unwavering and I truly appreciate your letter of support. Please continue to stay involved and in touch.

Very best regards,

Jolie L. Justus

  1. I got my vaccination a couple of days ago! Hence the awesome Facebook pic.

    was the original letter that hard to read?

  2. maggie, no, the original letter was not that hard to read; it was just formatted funny. So, I have reformatted it to make it all visible. Thanks for pointing it out.

    By the way, do you have a Blogger profile (maggie) now? Furthermore, do you have a Blogger blog to go along with it? If so, why haven't you given us the URL yet?
