Not only did the NYT omit several large, reliable studies on antidepressant use during pregnancy and fail to include views from experts in the field of reproductive mental health, but the tone of the article is demeaning to women facing the difficult choice of taking medication to treat mental illness during pregnancy.
When Chris talks about non-conformity, he's not talking about rebelling against the world, he's talking about how to change the world by each of us achieving our personal goals.
If you have ever posted a news link to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, then you have participated in the social sharing ecosystem which is overtaking traditional channels as the most powerful way to distribute information.
