New Stanek column on WND: “Babes in Thailand rapists needn’t leave U.S.”

So what if minor girls can’t buy emergency contraceptives without a prescription? Their rapists can. When last week the FDA authorized over-the-counter access of ECs to women 18 and older, it also authorized over-the-counter access to men 18 and older. Why would men buy ECs? Ask them in Thailand, where ECs have been marketed for […]

Stanek 8-16 column: Breaking news on Hialeah abortion clinic murder case

My WorldNetDaily.com column today reveals breaking news about the baby that witnesses allege was placed kicking and gasping for air in a biohazard bag at an abortion clinic in Hialeah, Florida, on July 20, including: The medical examiner has determined this baby was born alive. The person putting the live baby in a biohazard bag […]

New Stanek column on WND: “Miami – legalized back-alley abortion capital of the US”

Abortion proponents said making abortion legal would stop back-alley abortions. In reality, all legalizing abortion did was make back-alley abortions legal. I’ve previously written about characters like Krishna Rajanna, the fetus-eating abortionist in Kansas, and Rodolfo Finkelstein, the sexual pervert abortionist in Michigan. But now I’ve stumbled on a nest of abortionist snakes in Miami, […]

Will (can?) the real Democrats please stand up?

From today’s NY Times, on Pew Research Center opinion poll findings released Thursday: The real import of these splits within the parties – and the problems they pose for Democrats – becomes apparent only when one seeks out the weight of the differing groups within each party. Moderate and liberal Republicans constitute only 36 percent […]

Clock ticking… Child Custody Protection Act update

Sen. Frist called for unanimous consent once again this morning to send the Child Custody Protection Act to conference (i.e., for Senate reps to meet with House reps to work out agreeable language, since they passed similar but not identical bills). This time, supposedly pro-life Sen. Reid stood up and objected, rather than rabid pro-abort […]

10299863_643046945782168_2130286851_nThe narratives most often used to spread reproductive justice awareness always center the discussion on “Women’s Rights.” But since I’m not a woman, I’ve felt very disconnected from the spaces I work in….

I was twenty when I had a medicinal abortion, and I have been on some form of birth control since that time. Even though the ability to reproduce hasn’t always been a factor with the partners I have had, I like knowing that I have a back-up plan and hormonal regularity….

Even the intake forms at my local Planned Parenthood are incredibly trans-exclusive! When I went to Planned Parenthood to get birth control I wasn’t given the option to state my preferred name or personal pronouns….

You might love your new hashtag or slogan, and it might be pretty catchy, but take a moment to remember that the “War on Women” really only means one type of person: cis-women.

“A Woman’s Right to Choose,” “Women’s Health,” and “Women’s Access” are all phrases that erase me and others like me.

Using “women” as a catch-all term for “people with active uteruses” is incredibly problematic….

Remember basic diversity training…. Not everyone who gives birth identifies as a woman…

Don’t assume that because someone is feminine that they are a woman regardless of their assigned reproductive system….

If you aren’t catching my obvious personal feelings, I’ll make clear that I’m a femme nonbinary person who deals with this all the time. Make my life a little easier. C’mon.

JLS note: My hope is commenters won’t mock Jack. My goal in posting this is to shed light to pro-lifers on another element of confusion and lostness on the other side. What would you say to Jack if having coffee together?
