The twelve-and-a-half are the 12.5% of the population experiencing infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss. According to the CDC, infertility is a medically recognized disease that affects 7.3 million men and women in our country. Infertility is a crisis that is increasing in magnitude over time. The largest growing population within infertility is women under 35.
But infertility is not a women's issue. It is a medical crisis affecting men and women equally. It affects those married or unmarried, gay or straight, young or old. It is a crisis that crosses into every religion, nationality, ethnicity, and race. Infertility can have its root in reproductive health or in biological limitations.
Our group is open to every person within the infertility/pregnancy loss/adoption blogging community (in other words, all 1000 blogs on the blogroll as well as all the ones we haven't found yet) can be a blogtavist with THFB. We also welcome any friends and family who would like to support the cause.
What is Blogtavism?
Using your sliver of the Internet to affect change through words and action. Utilizing blogs as a communication tool to spread awareness and support for issues affecting the infertility and pregnancy loss community.
