First Lady Betty Ford Died on Friday

Betty Ford, 
First Lady, 
Republican Feminist, 
Breast Cancer Survivor, 
Addict and Alcoholic,
American Heroine

  • Betty Ford always spoke her mind. She spoke publicly about breast cancer and subsequent mastectomy. 
  • She worked to support the Equal Rights Amendment.
  • She was pro-choice, saying that having babies should be a “blessing, not a duty."
  • Her openness about her dependency on pills and alcohol changed the national discourse on addiction and opened doors to treatment centers for thousands of Americans. 
Rest in peace, Betty Ford, your work is done.  You will be missed by many.  The sadness in my heart is that many will never know you for the heroine you were.
