This article debates how what happened in Ireland may become commonplace in the US with Ohio in talks to revive the HB 125 bill.

It just feels like we are not making progress anymore :’(

Mississippi’s Sole Abortion Provider in Danger

lipstick-feminists:

via Ms. 

On the final day to review general bills the Mississippi Senate Public Health Committee passed HB 1390, which requires doctors performing abortions to be board-certified OB-GYN’s with hospital admitting privileges. Although it sounds reasonable, HB 1390 is another affront to women’s reproductive rights when you factor in the already meager resources available to the women of Mississippi.

abortion virginia PAC politics reproductive rights ultrasound law personhood Women's Strike Force activism

Women’s PAC formed following abortion legislation

keepyourboehneroutofmyuterus:

A group of women has formed a new political action committee to recruit and support candidates to defeat elected officials who back the ultrasound and so-called personhood bills.

Women’s Strike Force, which boasts several former elected officials, formed after Virginia spent last week in national headlines for its attempt to require women to undergo mandatory trans-vaginal ultrasounds before an abortion.

“As a former member of the General Assembly and Virginia’s first woman in Congress, I fought for women’s rights in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s,” Leslie Byrne said in a statement. “We must move the commonwealth and the nation forward, not backslide to denying women rights.”

This is amazing and I’m pleased to see people reacting in this way.

[NB: It’s more than just cis women’s rights that are backsliding. Also, I keep saying this, but this is not simply the burden of ladies. I appreciate and am pleased that (cis) women are leading the charge but this should really be everyone’s concern.]

Stop the Oklahoma Personhood Act!

glitter-femin1sts:

Stop the proposed Personhood Act! 

The OK Personhood Act will deny abortions even for victims of sexual assualt and in cases where it is medically necessary to save a person’s life.

Oklahoma is about to pass the Personhood Act, which gives embryos constitutional rights at the moment of conception. This bill would also outlaw abortions, even if its medically necessary to save the parent’s life and in cases of rape and incest.

If you have time, please sign this.

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m kind of sick of people trying to take away reproductive rights.

It isn’t cool.

my body is not your vessel

for Kandace Hagen

Abortion has been legal in Canada since a Supreme Court ruling in 1988, however, government officials on Prince Edward Island have stripped the residents of their reproductive rights and prohibited access to local, safe and funded abortions. PRRO was founded in 2011 to help inform PEI residents of their current reproductive rights, and to campaign for safe and affordable access to abortions on the island. 

For more information, check out: http://www.prro.tk/

To get involved, pledge with Kandace (not monetary! simply a statement!) at: http://www.2012.active8campaign.com/global-youth-ambassadors/kandace-hagen/pledge-with-kandace/

abortion 180 180 film pro-choice ray comfort reproductive justice reproductive rights feminism genocide holocaust history hitler
"Abortion is absolutely not genocide. To compare the death of millions of Jews to abortion is an insult to their memory. Suggesting that the only instance of anti-semitism occurred during the Holocaust ignores the thousands of years of exile, diaspora, and systemic oppression Jewish people have survived. Anti-semitism existed prior to the World War II and still exists today. If anti-abortion groups truly care about Jewish people, they will take the time to learn about our history, study our interpretation of the Torah, and realize that they cannot speak for us. Groups like Abolish Human Abortion, JFA, and Ray Comfort (the person responsible for the monstrosity that is “180”) call for the end of legal abortion, are anti-contraception, and even apologize for rape. Their justification for this is almost always their own Christian beliefs. Why on Earth would Jewish people want to associate with them? The first amendment and the establishment clause are the main protections Jews have for openly practicing Judaism and maintaining their identities in America. Why would we want the “support” of groups that want to force us to live under their rules?"

Personhood bills are scary as fuck. If you think an unborn individual is more important than the person carrying it, or even just equally as important, then you are deluding yourself.
