I literally do not care what the Bible says about any political issue. I am not Christian. Christian scripture should have zero effect on my life or my personal freedoms.

One of the most common reasons I hear for people being against abortion is because “life is sacred.”
Really? Since when? When has life ever been sacred in this country?
If life is sacred, how come we don’t have universal healthcare?
If life is sacred, how come we don’t pass comprehensive gun laws so first graders don’t get gunned down in their classrooms?
If life is sacred, why don’t we offer paid maternal leave so mothers can actually take care of the babies that you are now forcing them to have?
If life is sacred, how come we don’t bat an eye when the police murder black kids?
If life is sacred, why do we have the highest maternal death rate in the developed world, which is only going to increase now that women are being forced to give birth?
If life is sacred, why is the death penalty even still a thing?
If life is sacred, why are we still encouraging violence against the LGBTQ+ community?
Life has literally never been sacred in this country. Maybe anti-choicers like to pretend that it is because it makes them feel righteous when in reality, they’re just misogynistic pieces of shit, but it’s not. And as long as psychotic, reactionary morons continue to steal power undemocratically and make decisions that the majority of us do not want, it never will be.

You cannot ban abortion. You can only ban safe abortion.

I’m thinking today about Savita Halappanavar, an Indian dentist living in Ireland, who in 2012 suffered a partial miscarriage of her first pregnancy. Doctors refused to perform an abortion to expel the foetus as it still had a detectable heartbeat. She developed sepsis and died. She was 31.
About Agnieszka T, a Polish woman who was pregnant with twins. She miscarried one foetus but was refused an abortive procedure. 6 days later her second foetus died. She had to wait 2 further days to be given a termination. She died 3 weeks later of septic shock. She had a husband and 3 other children. She was 37.
About Izabela, a Polish woman whose foetus was found to have several abnormalities, but who was determined to carry to term. When her waters broke in the 22nd week of pregnancy she was told she had to wait until her foetus had no heartbeat before they could induce her or perform a c-section. She died leaving behind a husband and nine year old daughter. She was 30.
About Andrea Prudente, an American woman on a ‘babymoon’ in Malta where she suffered an incomplete miscarriage. Due to Malta’s complete ban on abortion, she was denied an abortion that would save her life. She asked her husband to punch her in the stomach as hard as he could to either induce labour or stop the foetal heartbeat. She was medically evacuated to Spain where they safely performed the procedure needed to end her pregnancy and save her life. This happened on Thursday.
Restrictive abortion bans harm anybody who can get pregnant. They harm planned pregnancies, as much as unplanned ones. They harm residents and non residents. If you’re reading what’s happening in America and thinking ‘Well at least it’s not my country’, sorry to say there’s every chance you could still end up affected one day. Abortion is basic healthcare, and basic healthcare is a basic human right. All these women were denied theirs, and these are just the tip of the iceberg. The last 3 all happened within the last year. Rather than these women being a sign of the past, instead they’re now very much a sign of what’s to come in America and that’s terrifying.

i just wanted to say this, to anyone in the united states that follows me, i’m so fucking sorry.
abortion is healthcare, healthcare is a human right.
a fetus has no right to be in YOUR body for months without permission, to use your organs.
if there was any sense in that bloody supreme court, they would acknowledge your right to remove that fetus from your body.
also, if anyone here supports the overturning of roe v wade, get fucked. you’re not welcome on my account and you never will be.
*edit* pro lifers, when i said you’re not welcome here, i meant it. do not interact with this or any other of my posts. fuck. off.

Women's March NYC, October 2nd, 2021.
Women's March events were held all over the country in response to recent efforts by right-wing radicals to use the rigged judicial system to restrict the rights of women. Here in New York City, a large rally and march was organized. The rally began in Foley Square where participants listened to guest speakers and musical performances.
Several of the guest speakers urged everyone present to vote out any politician who is not staunchly supportive of women's rights. Other speakers pointed out that the Supreme Court has been compromised by right-wing radical judges and should be expanded during the Biden Presidency to restore balance to the institution.
After the rally, the group took to the streets, marching from Foley Square to Washington Square Park. The weather once again favored liberal New Yorkers, with an unusually warm October day featuring bright sunshine and temperatures nearing 80F (27C) degrees. --PWH3

This is your reminder that if you are going to protect, do so safely.
So here are some basic rules of thumb coming from several years of protesting:
 Don’t talk to the police
Write the phone number of whatever your local legal group is that is helping with the protest on your arm
Let someone know where you’re going
ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE GOING ALONE
Keep them up to date on when you get home
Have a plan to get home
Bring water, a face mask (we are still in a pandemic, and it’s good protection anyways), and a mini first aid kit if you have one
Do not wear your contacts, wear glasses. Much easier if things result in tear gas or other substances
Turn your finger print unlock off on your phone. Police can use that to get in, but they can’t make you give up your password
If you take pictures, keep them to yourself. Being identified is not always a good thing and can be really dangerous for a lot of people
Know who is organizing the event
Make a decision on where you draw the line for when to go home so that you don’t have to make that decision in the moment
These are just some basics. Feel free to add on, this is just what comes to mind right now. Stay safe, friends.
