Opinion: Abortion is an Inalienable Right

Human rights are not something we can just strip away. As a female, the possibility of my rights to my own body being taken away from me is horrific.

How COVID Changed the Way We Dream

The origin of an idea – what a surreal concept. When asked about the genesis of a thought, most of us default to the answer, “Well, it just popped into my head”.

Understanding the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine
