When was the last time you gave to an abortion fund? How about now with just a few simple clicks!
I’m raising money with the DC hole-a-thon to fund abortions for those in need. You can donate $1, you can donate $400, or you can donate anything in between. Donations can also be anonymous.
P.S. - if you can’t afford to donate but still think it’s a worthy cause, look for reproductive justice groups in your area, because they always need volunteers.
the now infamous “Women as Livestock” 20 week abortion ban in Georgia recently had an injunction placed upon it by a State court. This isn’t the end, of course, but this is a victory that all of us who worked so hard to defeat HB 954 can celebrate!
Does anyone have any reputable resources on the history of abortion legislation/judicial review in Mississippi?
Give what you can, take what you need.
If you live anywhere south of Maryland/West Virginia, you cannot use medicaid to assist in funding abortions. Supposedly in Georgia, you should be able to use medicaid in cases of rape or incest, but *mysteriously* clinics are never reimbursed for these cases. Also, some clinics have assistance programs, but this varies from clinic to clinic.
Specifically for Georgia, if you need help finding a clinic, there are none below Atlanta except for Savannah and Columbus. Any other location offering you ‘pregnancy assistance’ will not help you terminate a pregnancy, no matter what their ads say. If you decide to go to one of these purported clinics, be prepared for misinformation and shaming tactics.
If you have any more questions, I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I can help you find out.
Starting today, there are no legal abortion clinics in the state of Mississippi.
If you live in Mississippi and are in need of an abortion, I am more than happy to house you during the time it takes to get one in Georgia, or to help you find housing in any other neighboring states.
You are not alone.
You will be cared for.
You will be safe.

Even though this has been blocked for at least another week, this is still a really good idea.
There are so so sooo many people in non urban areas who need this procedure and don’t have the funds or support or are threatened and scared.
If anyone out there is thinking about having an abortion but questioning it for a reason that is from an outside source other than your own free will, maybe you’ll have access to Tumblr and maybe you’ll see all these people who are willing to help you.

The meme says:
“For me, the right to life has never been political.” And if it hasn’t been an issue for me, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT?
This morning Boehner spoke at the super conservative group Values Voter Summit where he made it clear that he has NO intention of getting out of my uterus, cares nothing about people who have actual uteri, and thinks we need to spend more time and money not letting gay people marry.
Because if there is ANYTHING this country needs right now, it’s jobs. Wait, no. Sorry. Less bodily autonomy. And more hatred. Please, can we get some more hatred, Speaker?
Fuck you very much.
The map illustrates the [abortion] barriers, state by state, facing women needing access to a constitutionally protected medical procedure. States shown in the darkest shade have enacted five of the most harmful restrictions: mandatory waiting periods; demeaning “counseling” sessions lacking a real medical justification; parental consent or notification laws that pose a particular hardship for teenagers from troubled homes, including incest victims; needlessly onerous clinic “safety” rules governing such things as the width of hallways and the amount of storage space for janitorial supplies; and prohibitions on abortion coverage in insurance policies.

Well, I guess Ga could (theoretically) be worse.
