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.
This is your chance to help. To be a part of something bigger than your own morals and values.
As some of you may know, 40 Days for Life is a religiously affiliated campaign of protests against abortion, held outside of women’s health clinics. This is…
I don’t know if y’all are familiar with Crisis Pregnancy Centers, but if you ever see those “PREGNANT? SCARED?” ads, that’s what they’re advertising. They often lure in vulnerable people with promises of free healthcare and then scare them with false information about abortions and throw in some slut shaming. Often times, they fail to provide the post-natal care they’ve promised for these women, 1. because they don’t have enough supplies to meet demand, 2. because they’re not actually medical providers. They receive federal funding and every time you see a “Choose Life” license plate, you see someone who has just donated money, through federal assistance, to the CPC.
I’ve been doing journal and online research on them for some time for reasons and the past two days I’ve done in person visits, asking for a pregnancy test and just seeing what happens.
I was looking up what all is on the ballot for the July primary and I found this gem hidden in there. Nice.
Unapologetically pro-choice, y’all. This shit ain’t okay.
All of y’all misogynistic and self hating, on-your-high-horse, god complexing, moral imposing pieces of shit can suck my vagina. VAGINA. Especially Dan Becker, Doug McKillip and Rene Unterman.
The deal is they’re just taking a straw poll to send a message to legislators and this won’t have any legal ramifications, but what fucking place does this have on a ballot?
i love this photo so much, it’s going everywhere. again.
Every woman’s soul is haunted by the spirits of earlier women who fought for their unmet needs and those of their children and their tribes and their peoples, who refused to accept the prescriptions of a male church and state, who took risks and resisted … those spirits dwell in us, trying to speak to us. …try to be worthy of your foresisters, learn from your history, look for inspiration from your ancestresses.

Rep Stuckey-Benfield on her last night as a Georgia Representative in protest of HB954’s passing in the House.
IF YOU’RE INTERESTED IN STANDING FOR ALL WOMEN AND AGAINST THE LITANY OF LEGISLATION THAT HAS COME AFTER WOMEN AND FAMILIES IN GEORGIA LET ME KNOW!!!
Feminist WHC is organizing a demonstration on March 12th.
As you may (or mayn’t) know, I am interning in the community outreach branch of Atlanta’s Feminist Women’s Health Center. We are part of Georgia’s Pro-Choice Coalition, so when anti-choice bills are introduced in the Georgia State Legislature, we’re on the front lines fighting for reproductive justice.
It’s been an extremely quiet and quick session, so far— until last Wednesday night. Former pro-choice representative Doug McKillip, who found God and republican values when his district lines were redrawn, introduced HB 954, a 20 week abortion ban. We’ve started calling it the ‘Doctor/Patient Interference Act’, because that’s exactly what it does. It removes the ability of doctors to give their patients equal and adequate medical treatment, because abortions will be banned after 20 weeks. This does not take into account that people impregnated through an abusive, unwanted manner either often don’t know they are pregnant or cannot emotionally deal with their situation, nor does it take into account that many fetal anomalies are not detected until after the 21st week— in these cases it is best to end the pregnancy before a stillbirth occurs and threatens the health of the mother.
The bill is now sitting with the House’s Judicial Non-Civil committee and is scheduled for hearing tomorrow. It is our ultimate goal to kill this bill in committee, because if it makes it past Rules it will go to the senate where it will undoubtedly pass and may have even more extreme measures added through amendments. In order to do this the coalition has been working overtime to prepare witnesses for testimony, since we only had two days notice of the hearing. Unfortunately, we found out at 1 pm today that not only will none of our witnesses be able to testify, but that Georgia Right to Life will be given special time to bring in an out of state ‘fetal pain’ expert while Georgian women are forced to remain silent.
Because of this it is more important than ever that we have people coming to the hearing tomorrow (2/16) at 12:30 in Georgia’s Legislative Office Building (Room 506) to show that we have numbers that will not be silenced when it comes to Reproductive Justice. At the very least I am asking that Georgia residents write the members of this committee (tinyurl.com/judync) and let them know you stand with women and not HB 954. We can’t let Georgia get one step closer to outlawing abortion. Women need medical choices.
The future must no longer be determined by the past. I do not deny that the effects of the past are still with us. But I refuse to strengthen them by repeating them, to confer upon them an irremovability the equivalent of destiny, to confuse the biological and the cultural.
