Question. If losing a pulse and being unable to bring that back via CPR means someone has died, why isn't that extended to a pulse's beginning in the womb? Also, since young children are completely dependent on mothers, I assume that means a woman can kill her toddler and it's perfectly fine cause she just happened to choose after the child was born? Not murder if they're dependent on you, after all
well first, your first question doesn’t really make sense and secondly I have heard this argument a million times before and it doesn’t hold water.
there is a huge difference between a newborn or toddler that depends on their parent to care for them and a fetus that is connected to and constantly feeding off a persons body in order to survive.

hey everyone! this is just your gentle reminder that TST (the satanic temple) is notoriously bad at winning it’s court cases. please do not rely on them to fight for your legal right to abortion. please do not donate to their abortion fund when it’s been a proven grift from the start. there are plenty of reliable, productive grassroots orgs. that you could donate to instead.
to help combat all the misinformation that’s been passed around, i’d like to link a couple of trustable abortion/birth control resources below! i’ll also be adding dependable orgs. that you could donate to! reblog this for your mutuals who live in states where their reproductive rights could be threatened.
abortion/birth control resources:
Planned Parenthood: one of the most reliable sources for birth control available. by downloading the app, you can get a prescription for daily birth control sent to your pharmacy or directly to your mailing address. they also offer other methods of birth control, such as IUDs and rings.
Plan C Pills: a super helpful website that directs you to multiple sources for abortion pills from third-party providers. It has a price-check option, so you can find a price that works for you. they also offer abortion support and counseling if you feel you need it.
Aid Access: probably one of the best choices for abortion pills if you are less than 10 weeks pregnant. they source their medication from trustable pharmacies. based in india, they will provide you with abortion pills via mail. they also have financial support for those who cannot afford the cost of these medications. they have doctors you can contact, and instructions for every step of the process.
Women on Web: they offer abortion pills via mail as well as consultations. they also have an accurate pregnancy calculator that can help you figure out how far along you are. it’s super important that you check out the page where they’ve debunked several at-home abortion methods.
groups to donate to:
Planned Parenthood: they’re actively working to fight against the implication of unconstitutional laws such as the texas abortion ban.
American Civil Liberties Union: although their focus is not exclusively on abortion, they have a long history of successfully defending individual rights in court. they plan to do the same with recent anti-abortion legislation.
Avow: a C4 non-profit dedicated to fighting the recent abortion laws in texas.

can’t believe texas is writing their own handmaid tale’s narrative. they literally just signed a law where you can report women (they’re literally offering CASH BOUNTIES) for having an abortion

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.

This is from ACLU. This is what is currently happening right now.
Last night, the Supreme Court did not respond to our emergency request to block Texas' radical six-week abortion ban, Senate Bill 8.
That means the law will now take effect today – prohibiting most abortions in the state. The impact will be immediate and devastating.
This extreme and blatantly unconstitutional law bans abortions at six weeks – before many people even know they are pregnant. But, there's more.
The law also actively encourages private citizens to act as bounty hunters by awarding them at least $10,000 if they successfully sue another person for providing an abortion or assisting someone who gets an abortion at around six weeks of pregnancy.
The bounty hunting abortion ban is intentionally designed to overwhelm clinics in the state with lawsuits and legal bills, ultimately forcing them to shut down. And due to structural racism and inequities, laws like Texas' abortion ban disproportionately harm Black and Brown people, people with low incomes, and those living in rural areas. The impact would be so sweeping, it would effectively end abortion access in Texas. we can't allow it.
We – in partnership with a steadfast coalition of reproductive health care providers, advocates, and nonprofit partners – will keep vigorously pursuing this lawsuit to have this extreme law struck down. And, with your support, we will do everything we can to protect the reproductive rights of people in Texas and help clinics stay open.
The ACLU is pushing back against a massive assault on access to abortion – in Texas and across the country. And you've helped us win some critical battles. Earlier this summer, we successfully blocked Arkansas' ban on abortion, the latest and most direct attack on abortion by anti-abortion politicians in that state. In addition, our ongoing litigation is currently blocking bans in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, and Tennessee.
But, the attacks on our abortion rights are not letting up – and we urgently need you by our side.
Don't let anti-abortion extremists win.
Together, we have to keep fighting for access to reproductive healthcare for everyone, everywhere. Please donate as quickly and generously as you can.
Pronouns: She, her, hers
Director of the Reproductive Freedom Project, ACLU
P.S. The ACLU was made for moments like this – when people's fundamental freedoms depend on our strength and persistence. Thank you for your passionate support for reproductive freedom and all of our civil liberties.

“The ‘unborn’ are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don’t resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don’t ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don’t need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don’t bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn. You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus, but actually dislike people who breathe. Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are specifically mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn.”
― Methodist Pastor David Barnhart

Why are people so obsessed with the hijab? Literally just let women wear what they want , why do you care so much?
I've said this before and ill say it again, imagine if they made a rule that said women can't wear pants anymore ,or women can't wear heels or something. Sounds ridiculous doesnt it?
But when it comes to muslim women it's apparently okay to control what they wear. And "woke" feminists suddenly disappear.
Where is the social media uproar huh? Where are you fav celebrities and influencers and activists that you all love so much? Wanna stand for womens rights? Stand for all of them , not just you.

Ok. So is it then OK for a mother to kill her newborn WHO STILL RELIES ON HER, because she decides that she doesn't want a tiny human depending on her?
no, because that would be murder and contrary to what you nut jobs believe abortion is not that.
