Big Business

It seems that everyone is interested in big business these days, from state governors to investors. But who knew that women could have their own big business, right inside their bodies?

Recently, there's been much hay made of politicians seeking control over women and their bodies, most notably what goes in (and out) of their respective uteri. It seems strange that large corporations and Wall Street get all the breaks (and hey, even get free speech rights as if companies were actual people), but individual women seem to have strangers wanting to nose around in private personal places. So, the ACLU of Florida came up with a brilliant concept: incorporate your uterus! Through its handy certificate of incorporation, you can easily incorporate the uterus of your choice. That means not just your own equipment, but the uteri of friends and family, too (this could be a great shower gift, since a mom to be knows all about just what her uterus can, and cannot, put up with).

Now, here's the golden question: if you incorporate your uterus, will you have to pay taxes on it? The Toad doesn't know. But what a fabulous question for your accountant! Go to the ACLU of Florida to start your foray into big business.

I read your article about the cuts to Planned Parenthood in the Daily News. As women we need to protect our rights.

Hey everybody, thank you so much! This issue is really important to me, and it's wonderful to know it resonates with you, too.

Clicking over from Beyond The Brochure to say "thanks" for your writing. I've read your blog before for gift ideas because we have similar taste in gifts. I like to browse for ideas, sometimes for me.

The pro choice issue is even more important to me now that I'm a mom. I like the ACLU's take on the issue. Great way to get the message out about our reproductive rights.
