“Dream is dead”: MLK Day ad campaign in NY shines light on abortion

by Kelli In 1963 when Martin Luther King Jr. shared his Dream with the nation, he never envisioned an America where ‘reproductive justice’ would end more than 56 million innocent human lives. His dream never pictured a nation where black boys and black girls would never be able to join hands with white boys and […]

The laugh-a-minute abortion telethon

11813vulva

There may not be a more painful oxymoron than “feminist comedian.” MTV flash-in-the-pan Sarah Silverman and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart co-creator Lizz Winstead teamed up in New York City on Nov. 18 for a telethon to fund abortions in Texas via NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Think Jerry’s Kids – children assisted by the Muscular Dystrophy Association – except instead of saving them, the unborn are eliminated. They call that “reproductive justice.”…

Reproductive justice should include transgender community

How do we adequately address and include those who have abortions but are not women? We must acknowledge and come to terms with the implicit cissexism in assuming that only women have abortions. Trans men have abortions. People who do not identify as women have abortions. They deserve to be represented in our advocacy and […]

Beck mocks MSNBC host’s tampon earrings with condom gloves and BC pill nose ring

After applying the condom gloves, Beck proceeded to have a little white pill taped to his nostril.  He called it a “birth control nose ring.” “I’m with her, I’m with her.  [Melissa Harris-Perry is] wearing tampon earrings, I’m wearing condom gloves,” Beck said, the sarcasm clear in his voice. “I just want to make the […]

Sex-obsessed feminist feels out of place at Catholic university

These challenges have made me bitter. Bitter about the fact that I’m consistently denied my right to do or say anything about these issues. But bitter has made me want to speak louder, it has made me want to talk about it more, listen to people’s stories, strategize, obsess, and do something about it. And […]

Worker: What it’s like holding a mother’s hand during her abortion

Hand holding can be physically challenging. I have come home with scratches on my hands from fingernails, or swollen fingers that were gripped too tightly for too long…. The more challenging part is finding fresh but neutral points of conversation. I want to keep her distracted and entertained but dodge any potentially emotionally triggering topics… Hand holding can be emotionally draining. […]

Inside the Abortion Care Network 2012 Conference

The Abortion Care Network just concluded its annual three-day conference.

ACN is basically a club of all independent abortion clinics other than Planned Parenthood.

Pro-abortion conferences are always hush-hush. ACN didn’t even announce its own on its web page, Facebook page, or Twitter.

I only stumbled on this conference last night while perusing pro-abortion tweets, because Steph Herold, aka @IAmDrTiller, began live-tweeting from the event.

So all I have are tweets, but they’re interesting. I’ve organized the stand-outs by topic….

Pro-choice activist wonders where the LGBTQ support has gone

In this spirit, I’m asking where the Black LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community is on Black women and abortion? This is an important question for me. My identity is as a Black lesbian feminist who has worked with Black gay and lesbian organizations and who works on women’s rights from a reproductive justice […]
