I made a post of these pictures because not only was Rep Thompson’s speech utterly amazing, her decision to punctuate it with a wire hanger cements something that those too young to remember or born after Roe v Wade do not know personally: the atrocity suffered before us by those who were faced with little to no choice when it came to their reproductive rights.

Much thanks to Rep Thompson and the other brave, amazing women like her that fought to overturn SB5.

Listen to Cher and Kathy Griffin and vote.

I cannot emphasize how important this upcoming election is to women and the LGBTQ community.

I suggest all females watch this. 

*i suggest all humans watch this.

If you haven’t watched this yet, you really should.

This is a must, girls and boys.

I agree that everyone should watch this. This is one of the few videos on female representation in the media that at least tries to point out that the way females are represented has a negative effect on everyone, not just women. 

** I suggest every person, male or female, watch this. 

definitely worth the watch .

As previously stated, EVERYONE needs to watch this.

I want to see this movie when it comes out.

There is a country where the leading cause of death of pregnant women is murder by a partner. In this same country, more than a million women were raped in 2008 and women are much more likely to live in poverty than men. Local laws don’t protect their right to bodily freedom and integrity; some rape laws even state that once a woman initially consents to sex, she doesn’t have the right to change her mind.

You may have caught on by now — yes, I’m talking about the United States.

August, 2011.

Outside lollapalooza.

Chicago, IL.

This is absolutely disgusting.  It’s terrifying.

I cannot believe that people like this even exist.

Standing there, watching those people, listening to them speak.  It was fucking scary.  The man would point at people, telling girls that they were just stupid rebels, whores, at one point a man walked by with a disgusted look on his face and the man with the megaphone called him a tranny.  I felt so sick just standing there, and seeing that girls my age were part of that group.  Girls who think that they are of no importance in the world.  

WOW. WOW. WOW.

I’m for non violence like 90% of the time.

I wouldn’t be if I were there though. Fuck shit up: feminist style.

I like the “READ BIBLE FOR DETAILS”. If you are curious to more about this fabulous offer, check your handy dandy bible. I wonder if they were giving away bibles. Would someone go home, find a bible somewhere else, look up these passages they remembered, and realize that yes, they do sympathize with these people and would like to join their organization?

This makes me sick

You cannot be a feminist and oppose a woman’s right to choose.

You can be a feminist and be uncomfortable with the notion of abortion. You can be a feminist and communicate that discomfort to third parties. You can be a feminist and choose never to have an abortion yourself. You can be a feminist and support greater rights and opportunities for young mothers everywhere so that fewer women will have to choose between pregnancy and their career. You can do all of these things and be a feminist. What you cannot do is stand in the way of any other woman’s moral and political right to reproductive self-determination.

There is a world of difference between being against abortion on a personal basis and supporting, or leading, movements to make the practice illegal. There are no good arguments for making abortion illegal, a policy which, where it has been tested in other nations, has been shown to lead directly to hundreds of thousands of adult women dying in horrific pain along with their unborn children following illegal backstreet terminations. Distasteful as you may or may not find it, women will always seek to terminate unwanted pregnancies. The very least we can do in civilised societies is make it safer for them to do so, along with facilitating access to contraception in order to reduce the number of terminations that need to take place…

Alabama lawmakers last week introduced three heavily-sponsored bills that in concert would change how a person is defined in the state and potentially make abortion in all circumstances illegal.

Senate Bill 301, introduced by Sen.  Phil Williams (R-Cherokee, Etowah), is a proposal to amend the Alabama Code of 1975 to change the definition of the term “person” to mean : “any human being from the moment of fertilization or the functional equivalent thereof.”

Williams’ bill — read for the first time last Tuesday — has 18 co-sponsors and has been referred to the Senate committee on Health.

Rep. John Merrill (R-Tuscaloosa) filed an identical personhood bill in the House on Thursday, House Bill 405. But taking a step further from just amending the state’s legal code, Merrill also filed House Bill 409, which is a ballot proposal to amend the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, so that every time the word “person” is used in that document it would include “‘all humans from the moment of fertilization.” If HB 409 goes forward, Alabamans would have the opportunity to vote on this amendment either in special election at the end of the year or in 2012.

These bills, which have been referred to the House Health committee, both have 31 co-sponsors, which, according to the attorney Ben DuPré of the Foundation for Moral Law, is “astounding” and a good indication that the laws will pass. DuPré and the national organization Personhood USA helped draft the earlier versions of the legislation, though several anti-aboriton rights groups, such as Alabama Citizens for Life, have backed the bills.

“We must protect all Alabama children,” said Sen. Williams in a Personhood USA statement. “At the same time we have to send a message that Alabamians value the sanctity of life. Every heartbeat is as important as the next.”

I think what they’re trying to say is that personhood ends as soon as you come out female-bodied.
