Women’s March, January 20, 2018. Denver, Colorado. Estimates are that half a million people showed up in support for women’s rights, including the right to abortion

Yesterday I spent some time with two friends, both of whom, among the other things they do, volunteer to accompany women coming to the Boulder Women’s Clinic to get abortions. These women are often intimidated by the usual group of right wing Christian fundamentalist thugs. My friends make the emotional journey to the Boulder Women’s Clinic a bit more bearable. Women come to Boulder from all over the United States to get abortions at the Boulder Women’s Clinic, not just from Boulder County or Colorado in general, such is its reputation for professionalism and quality service for women’s health in general, and for abortion in particular.

The founder – or one of the key founders of the Boulder Women’s Clinic is Warren Hern. As I understand it, he continues to guide the clinic’s work Hern has been rewarded for his contribution to quality women’s health with a half century of harassment, death threats and the like. One must recognize the principle and the emotional strength it takes to carry on as he has. In any case, Hern has written a book “Homo Ecophagus: A Deep Diagnosis To Save The Earth” which has just appeared. He will be discussing the book’s subject matter at a public presentation on Wednesday, January 25th at 6:30pm, at the St. Julien Hotel. Tickets for this event are $10 (plus a small processing fee) and are available on Eventbrite. As the online ad for the talk notes:

Home Ecophagus by Warren M. Hern is a wide-ranging look at the major problems for the survival of not just the human species, but all other species on Earth due to human activities over the past tens of thousands years. The title of the book indicates Hern’s new name for the human species: The man who devours the ecosystem

A link to get a ticket for this event can be found here.

I have not yet read Homo Ecophagus which has just come out, but have ordered it. Nancy and I hope to attend Hern’s talk. Hope those of you in Colorado will do so as well.
