This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.

Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust

"We are going to lay down to join our dead brothers and sisters from the womb, rather than donate this time and effort into helping the sentient and suffering."

Again, none of you were at immediate risk to be aborted. You’re not survivors.

Also, don’t you fucking dare appropriate the word ‘holocaust’ for your own selfish, ignorant “activism” you disgusting, anti-Semitic, misogynistic garbagebags.

The United States has a pro-life problem. Every day, clinics across the country are besieged by protestors, causing emotional distress to patients and threatening the safety and privacy of patients and clinic staff. Protestors hold gory, photoshopped or mislabeled posters, shout obscenities, pray and sing loudly, stalk patients and staff, and condemn passersby to hell for…walking past, I guess. Some students even get school credit for protesting.

One of the more egregious types of protestors is the “sidewalk counselor,” who, despite having no professional or medical training to claim the title, follows patients up and down the sidewalk, pleading with them not to enter the clinic (and perhaps instead, to visit one of their fake clinics).

At least eight abortion clinic employees have been murdered by anti-abortion extremists since the early 1990’s. Other acts of terrorism include multiple cases of attempted murder, arson, bombings, anthrax threats, stalking, death threats, and vandalism. These extremists usually participated in clinic protests before their attacks, or were associated with anti-abortion groups.

I need feminism because a senator actually referred to a pregnant woman as a ‘host’.

Not a woman. Not a mother. A ‘host’.

You know what a host is?

It’s the victim of a parasite.

So this pro-life dude just made an argument against his own agenda.

And also, a host?

Fuck that shit. 

If I’m a host, then I have the right to kick an unwelcome visitor out of my house.

He may want to rethink that term.

I need feminism because this happened in my state and the sad thing is it was nothing new or surprising, as disgusting as it is.

"

I had a patient in the clinic who really did not want an abortion but who had no resources to cover the costs of prenatal care or childbirth. She was single and without insurance coverage but made just enough money to be ineligible for state assistance. She already had outstanding bills at the hospital and with the local ob-gyn practice. No doctor would see her without payment up front.

We were willing to do the abortion for a reduced rate or for free if necessary. But she really didn’t want an abortion. Once I understood her situation, I went to the phone and called the local ‘crisis pregnancy center.’

"Hello, this is Dr. Wicklund."

Dead silence. I might as well have said I was Satan.

"Hello?" I said again. "This is Dr. Wicklund."

"Hello," very tentatively, followed by another long silence.

"I need help with a patient," I said. She came to me for an abortion, but really doesn’t want one. What she really needs is someone to do her prenatal care and birth for free."

"What do you expect us to do?"

I let that hang for a minute.

This Common Secret, Susan Wicklund

Crisis Pregnancy Centers often disguise themselves as medical facilities, with advertisements offering “help” with an unplanned pregnancy. Their main goal is to keep the pregnant person from having an abortion at all costs. Usually, all they’ll give you is a free pregnancy test, some baby clothes, and maybe a box of diapers.

The patient referred to in the quote was given free prenatal care and did not have to pay the financial cost of childbirth by a local anti-choice doctor. She would often stop by Dr. Wicklund’s office to let her know how she was doing:

"He (the doctor) always moans and groans about being tricked into [doing this]," she says. "Then he goes off on these tirades against abortion."

(via provoice)

"This Common Secret" is such a phenomenal book. And yeah, crisis pregnancy centers are generally evil, so there’s that.

"African American women have disproportionately lacked health insurance and been affected by higher rates of poverty, as well as a variety of socioeconomic factors that contribute to a number of health disparities. As a result, five women die per day from breast cancer, make up a majority of all new HIV infections among women, and are three times more likely to have an unplanned pregnancy than white women. We celebrate Black History Month by honoring the voices of African American women who were polled on the best solutions to protect their own health and remedy health care disparities in their communities.”

"Why do none of the people who say they care so much about theoretical “fetal pain” ever think that demonstrable maternal pain is worth mentioning?"

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court is hearing a challenge to a buffer zone law that protects patients and staff at clinics in Massachusetts from anti-choice harassment and violence.

Across the country, extreme, often violent, anti-choice protesters physically block access to clinics and intimidate people exercising their constitutionally protected rights.  Learn more about this issue and the laws that exist to protect patients and their doctors.

what judgement of abortion does

This is important.

I’ve done clinic escorting, and the only reason I felt even remotely safe was because of buffer zones. The protesters couldn’t come on our (I say our because I’m continuing to escort at a local clinic in a couple weeks) property at all. Like not even a toe. They placed rosaries on our fence, we were able to take them off because they are not allowed to do that. I would LOVE IT if they had to be farther away from the clinic.

I’ve been told I’m going to hell, I’m a baby murderer, a harlot, an idiot. I’ve had people in my face. One man threatened violence against my best friend and I. One protester called a mother who brought her daughter in to get an abortion a bad mother, and told her she would have abused her grandchild had it been born. These fuckers were climbing on bike racks just to peek over our fences and hold their signs and yell at women going into the clinic.

I cannot imagine what escorting would have been like had there not been a fence and some space between us. As it is the clinic experiences vandalism regularly and obviously the placement of the bike racks for the bus station causes problems as it is.

Abortion has nothing to do with infants.

It is literally impossible to abort an infant.

When someone aborts, they are either aborting an embryo or a fetus.  The fetus is the stage of life directly before the infant stage.  Infants are never and can never be aborted.  An abortion is quite literally the removal of a fetus from a womb for any reason.  Even miscarriages are called spontaneous abortions or natural abortions.  Once a fetus breaches the birth canal and is born it is officially an infant and is protected under the law as a born citizen.

A fetus is not an infant.  Just like a teenager is not a senior citizen, and just like an adolescent is not a toddler.  They are two separate stages of mammalian life.

Thank you.

Today is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Reblog and raise awareness of the right to choose!

friendlyangryfeminist:

abortion is a valid form of birth control that should be legally, readily and freely available at any time during a pregnancy.

And before people are like “lololol North Dakota who lives there anyway?”

You know what particular population North Dakota is higher than most in?

Native Americans.

And Native women have astronomical rates of violence and rape against them.

So basically people who dismiss North Dakota don’t give a fuck about these women.

this is actually so unconstitutional like what???????????????????????????

a federal judge said this shit was unconstitutional

the state’s ONLY clinic that performs abortions is STILL OPEN

but most women just assume that abortions are illegal because of shitbags trying to fuck everything up

update!
