A feminist, atheist, Latina mom of one in my mid 20's who resides in Nyc. A mother by choice, who is for choice. I make no excuses or apologies for who I am but don't mistake me for someone I'm not. I love all things horror, alternative, and vintage. I mostly re-blog with shameless commentary on abortion rights.

A pro-choice husband/wife team from Raleigh, N.C. We hold up funny signs in counterprotest on Saturday mornings.


abortion will be illegal again in our lifetime, bitch.

Let's get one thing absolutely fucking clear

apersnicketylemon:

It does not matter WHY you are pro life. It does not matter if you’re motivated by GENUINE CONCERN for a developing fetus, it does not matter if you are motivated by pictures of white infants, it doesn’t matter if you genuinely believe the right to life is more important than the right to bodily…

“black pride” (or any sort of “minority” pride movement) means “I am proud of who I am DESPITE those who have told me and my people that whiteness is superior” while “white pride” means “I am proud of who I am BECAUSE whiteness is superior” and that’s why it’s ok to say one but not the other


April 11: Abortion Rights Emergency Speakouts/WEBCAST April 12: Protests!

stoppatriarchy:

On April 11: Speakouts on the Abortion Rights Emergency were held in New York, L.A., Seattle & San Francisco. Women’s stories—before Roe v. Wade and today—were brought to life.  We honored those who risk their lives to provide abortions and we confronted the full anti-woman program driving this war on women. You can watch the entire webcast of the New York City event at www.StopPatriarchy.org including:

  • Dr. Willie Parker, award-winning doctor at the last abortion clinic in Mississippi
  • Sunsara Taylor, writer for revcom.us/Revolution newspaper, leader of the Abortion Rights Freedom Ride, and initiator of StopPatriarchy.org
  • Merle Hoffman, CEO of Choices Women’s Medical Center, which has provided abortions and other health services to women since 1971
  • Donna Schaper, Senior Minister of Judson Memorial Church
  • Marge Piercy, poet, novelist, memoirist, via video
  • Louise Bernikow, author, historian, long time activist
  • Bill Baird, reproductive rights pioneer, jailed 8 times in the 1960s for lecturing on abortion and birth control
  • David Gunn, Jr., son of first abortion doctor to be assassinated, via video message
  • And testimony from:
  • Susan Cahill, owner of the Montana abortion clinic that was destroyed and closed on March 3, 2013 about how this is an attack on all women
  • Dr. Susan Robinson, one of only four doctors in the U.S. who openly provide late-term abortions; featured in the acclaimed documentary After Tiller
  • Dr. Susan Wicklund, author of This Common Secret; My Journey As an Abortion Doctor
  • Plus:True stories of illegal abortions before Roe v. Wade

Then, on April 12, people took to the streets:

We raised bloody coat-hangers* (representing the fate of women when abortion is illegal) and shackles (representing female enslavement). We held photos of women who died from illegal abortions and doctors who were killed for providing abortions.  After an hour of silent protest, we broke the shackles and pledged to resist until we defeat and reverse these attacks and win Abortion On Demand & Without Apology and the full liberation of women.

This war on women will not go away on its own and will not be stopped by politicians or the courts. We must take responsibility for resisting and defeating these attacks – the lives of women depend on what we do.

Wire coat-hangers were used by many women as an instrument to self-abort when abortion was illegal. 5,000 women in the U.S. are estimated to have died every year from illegal, unsafe abortions before Roe v. Wade legalized abortions.

Five Myths About Crime in Black America—and the Statistical Truths

In the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death [and Renisha McBride and Jonathan Ferrell], we’ve seen a lot of discussion of the larger societal issues that play into how and when people are perceived as criminals. There were hoodies, there were marches, and there were frank talks from parent to child about how to minimize the danger of being a young person of color. On the other side, there were justifications of George Zimmerman’s actions: a smear campaign against Martin’s character, and plenty of writers explaining that statistically, blacks are simply more dangerous to be around.

That framing ignores the realities behind the numbers. Here are five myths about crime and people of color.

"Sometimes in black communities we forget that black girls are girls, not little women. My friend then shared with me her own story of being sexually abused and ending up pregnant and in need of an abortion at age 12 because her family members irresponsibly left her with a male family friend. The first time a 12-year-old black girl ever told me she had been raped, I, too, was 12 and she was a friend. The second time, I was a 22-year-old teacher, and the 12-year-old was my student.

I realize now, having heard a version of this story, yet again, that as gut-wrenching as these stories are, among black girls they are not uncommon; they are not even remarkable. So many of the highly educated black women you see went to hell and back before reaching the age of 18. Education has become our drug of choice.

[…]For black girls, educational achievement is not always the best indicator of a stable, happy home life. For me, education offered a goal and reward structure that was predictable and that I could control, simply by doing what was asked of me. In the midst of so many things I could not control, school was attractive. I imagine that for many black girls the narrative is similar."
