Stanek weekend question: What is the pro-life response to illegal, unsafe abortions?

by Suki Carder I read a quote in Al Jazeera on April 26 by Dr. Linda Valencia, Guatemala Program Officer of Planned Parenthood Federation of America:

Snapping picture peeves Planned Parenthood peddlers

I asked Jenani why they were collecting signatures. “We’re not.” She said. “We’re collecting donations. Planned Parenthood has lost $19 million in government funding.” “Good.” I thought. A customer walked out of the store and said to me, “I think I probably agree with you.” She then began to speak her mind to Jenani regarding […]

Zo’s latest rant: Worshipping Mother Earth

You see, God had a real problem with people worshiping other gods because of the things that people would do in their idol worship. Things like incest, cannibalism, child sacrifice, and God really hates child sacrifice. Tribes that worshiped other idols had a bad habit of doing that. And the same mentality of those tribes […]

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?
