For many women a trip to the beauty salon is a regularly scheduled event, one which they deem a high priority, not to be neglected. Countless men find rest and comfort as they sit back in their barber’s chair. Hair salons and barbers shops are the watering holes of this modern age. These are the places people go to look good, hear the latest gossip and laugh with familiar friends. There’s a real sense of community and togetherness as conversations ring high over the noise of blow dryers and buzzers.
I’ve spent a lot of time in salons through the years. As I’ve waited for my turn, I’ve heard people talk about celebrity marriages, family issues, frustrations with government and whatever else captured their attention. I heard a variety of topics discussed, but one thing that was never brought up was the issue of abortion. That was something they simply didn’t talk about.
Thankfully, that is now about to change in shops across our nation.
