if your sense of Catholicism is so warped that you think every single pro choice person is by definition not Catholic, you seriously need to have a real conversation with the little old lady at your parish who volunteers at the soup kitchen every wednesday and rules the post-Mass coffee hospitality ministry with an iron fist. maybe think a little more deeply about what it actually means to be Catholic, what it means to follow Christ in service to others.
“Now people are coming from across the country — at great stress, great exhaustion, great trauma — to arrive in our community, where likely they will be met by a handful of angry protesters, so that they can access health care,”
texas anti-abortion protesters are trying to enact ordinances at the city and town level in NM, as it was done in TX
new mexico has an equal rights amendment that includes abortion access (a 1969 ban was repealed last year)
the new mexico state constitution outlaws counties and municipalities from making laws that are inconsistent with state law
new mexico remains a haven for texans and other nearby states for those who can afford to travel should they seek an abortion, but the fight is only just beginning. texas anti-choice protesters will seek to enact similar legislation to the texas 6wk abortion ban. they already are.
some counties near the southern border of new mexico have passed anti-abortion ordinances, but have been explicitly told that these cannot be enforced, and any attempt to do so would likely result in litigation.
if you are in texas and seeking an abortion, you can legally do obtain one in New Mexico. they are ready and will not leave you high and dry. please consider it if this is a choice you are faced with
I just stumbled into a blog trying to explain that both Layla and Steven grant are pro lifers and they would be sent by Kunsho and tawaret to beat up ppl who work as sex workers and who want to "kill baby's" at plant parenthood....
Like to blog literally called Steven grant is pro lifer and this made my skin crawl and I can't keep this in my system I need to share this so I can BE ASSURED that I'm not the only one who believes this is absolutely stupid
Ican go into heavy details AND I WILL just to explain why Layla and Steven would be pro choice and the fact they suggested that my queen tawaret would send Layla to beat up women who want to get aportion....... I have no faith in humanity
There’s so many things wrong with this. For starters Steven and Marc are Jewish and in the Jewish faith they believe in abortion being a acceptable thing ￼and that life doesn’t start with the fetus. It starts at birth.
Christianity however believes that the moment your pregnant you are carrying life. Its a fetus the thing can’t even think. Its not human being it’s a parasite. But seriously people were fine with abortion for many many years until recently. By the 1700 to 1800s I think people started getting all “It’s a human being!! You can’t kill it!!”
Abortions happen everyday and they will continue to happen everyday forever. Btw they had abortions in ancient Egypt.
Clearly this account you were talking about is just projecting their shitty Christian views onto characters who most likely would be for abortions. It’s shitty and I hope that their account gets banned.
The dismantling of Roe v Wade will go down in history as one of the most damning indictments of american politics and a public health decision, no matter how short or long lived, that will shape the pain and suffering of generations to come.
the supreme court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is not official yet. someone leaked a draft of the opinion that the members of the court have been circulating and revising (the draft was created by justice samuel alito).
which is insane by the way. it’s the first time that a draft of a supreme court decision has ever been leaked in the entire history of this country.
it makes perfect sense to feel grief or panic or dread or sadness or anger or whatever you’re feeling right now. this is fucking terrible and scary. just for the sake of avoiding misinformation, i wanted to clarify this because i think a lot of the headlines have been misleading, and the info gets even more misconstrued when it’s rephrased on social media and stuff
ppl being like “abortion is okay only if you took all the “correct” measures first or if you were impregnated non-consensually” SHUT UP! abortion for “sexually promiscuous” people and sex addicts and ppl you call sluts and whores and people who have one-night stands and every single person who had sex because they felt like it! you do not have to reach a quota of suffering to “deserve” an abortion. abortion is not something you earn. abortion isn’t a moral thing like you protestants like to think it’s a fucking right and everyone deserves access to it and they don’t have to prove that they deserve it. pregnancy is not a punishment for sex and every single person deserves the right to terminate a pregnancy regardless of how they became pregnant. shut up
“If anyone needs to go camping in my state…” “If anyone needs to visit their aunt/cousin/friend…”
STOP. STOP STOP STOP STOP STOP.
FOR YOUR SAFETY, S T O P.
DO NOT VOLUNTEER TO HOST RANDOM STRANGERS. DO NOT AGREE TO BE HOSTED BY A RANDOM STRANGER.
DO NOT PUBLICLY POST THAT YOUR HOUSE WILL BE AN ABORTION SAVE HAVEN. OFFICIAL NETWORKS TO DO THIS ALREADY EXIST, NETWORKS THAT HAVE THE ABILITY TO BACKGROUND CHECK, AND SHIELD THEIR VOLUNTEERS FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT.
Even IF you personally know every person you’re offering this to and know with 100% certainty that they’re legit: YOU HAVE JUST CREATED A POTENTIALLY LEGALLY DAMNING DIGITAL PAPER TRAIL.
I know how obnoxious this is to say, but please: reblog this. I see these posts a lot, and I know most of you have good intentions. But these unoffical auntie networks are dangerous, both for those trying to help, and those seeking help. Law enforcement sees you. Violent anti-abortion extremists see you.
