Help My Friend Jess Raise Money for National Abortion Access!
“I am bowling for abortion access because I believe every woman should have the right to shape her own life. By raising money, I am filling a vital health care gap by helping women pay for abortion care, emergency contraception, options counseling, child care during abortion procedures, and transportation costs to clinics. I’m supporting our community members when they need me most. Please donate today, and thank you for your support.”
Help my friend Jess raise $350!!! She’s also a really good bowler. She bowled a plus 200 the other night! She’s half way to her goal! Go Jess!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Um, I’m there! Play bingo and hang with pro-choicers, all in favor of Planned Parenthood’s Birth Control Matters campaign, “an effort to make prescription birth control available without co-pays, to enable women to choose the method that works best for them, and reduce the number of unintended pregnancies.” Reproductive Rights are my favorite!
If any of you lovely tumblr followers want to go, send me a message! I’d love to meet some you amazing feminists IRL!
THE WAR ON WOMEN’S REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS MUST BE STOPPED!
Abortions make up 3% of the services provided during a year at Planned Parenthood. AND FEDERAL MONEY IS NOT USED TO FUND ABORTION PROCEDURES.
Planned Parenthood provides affordable pelvic and breast exams, preventive procedures which can save lives and are absolutely necessary for women’s health. They sell affordable birth control and provide non-judgemental care, especially to the GLBTQ community. They help numerous scared young women with no where else to go and no one to talk to, whether they need birth control, medical help after a rape, or yes, an abortion.
I am not usually a fan of violent language, but GET YOUR EFFING LAWS OFF MY BODY!
Laura Bush is a fascinating, smart, articulate woman. What impresses me so much in this video is how carefully she chooses her words; the intention behind each one of them, making sure to state her views without speaking ill of her husband and his beliefs. It’s not a path I’d walk, but I admire her.
I know Laura Bush is pro-choice, but until today, I did not know that she supported Gay Marriage. It hardly surprises me given her thoughtful approach to social issues, illustrated in this clip when she notes that opposition to Gay Marriage will probably cease with time as so much of the issue can be a generational divide (Let’s hope!).
I don’t know how or why she is married to George W. Bush (though the part of Oliver Stone’s biopic W that I most enjoyed dealt with this partnership- the part I least enjoyed was when we were supposed to accept Josh Brolin as an 18-year-old. The whole scene, I kept wondering why they let the 40-year-old-man into Skull and Bones. Then I thought, hey isn’t that the guy from Bring It On leading the initiation?!). But, Hollywood movies aside, or maybe because of, one has always gotten the sense that she does truly love him, and they seem to respect each other, even when, or especially when, they disagree on issues.
Hi, I'm a twenty-something, and I live in Williamsburg, BK. I wear many hats. Writer, feminist, filmmaker, a fedora with a Lindsey Lohan pin on it (circa Freaky Friday). I also try to practice yoga every now and then, enjoy live music, and love to rabble rouse.
