Mary Long is Definitely My Shero

Tonight at Georgia State, Mary Long, past chair of Georgia's WIN List will be honored as Shero of the Year, 2007 at the Diane L. Fowlkes Spring Event. Mary will add this honor to a host of others. Read more about Mary, here. Every time I feel like I feel like putting down an important but difficult task and every time I hesitate to do what I think is right because it might make someone angry, I think about Mary Long and the kind of courage it took for her to stand in the place of her patients at the Grady ER and become a plaintiff in the Georgia case, Doe v. Bolton that was the companion to Roe. Her reason? "It was just the right thing to do."

Congratulations, Mary. We love you.
