    Nope, I'm not on linked in, but you're the third person to mention it to me, so I think I'm going to get on it. I'd been wary of it because I don't really like the idea of mingling online profiles...

    Erm... I'm also a big fan of the women's health part of OB, which in my own personal moral code, includes women's choice.
