Women can never achieve full equality while anti-choice men get away with passing forced pregnancy bills.

To the millions of pro-life students: You are not alone.
Do not let your teachers and professors bully you. Stand up for what is right!
Students for Life is here to stand with you as you defend the preborn!
A Bangor clinic that has long provided abortions and other health services for women will soon offer its first birth control procedure for men.
In October, a nurse practitioner at the Mabel Wadsworth Center will begin performing vasectomies on men and transgender women as part of its growing mission to meet the sexual and reproductive health needs of all genders and identities.
Patients whose annual income is at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level — that level works out to $18,735 for an individual in 2019, according to HealthCare.gov — will be able to pay $525 for the vasectomy. That’s the same price the center charges anyone for an abortion.
Here is another area where Christians have started a fight when they shouldn’t have. At least not in the way they have been going about it. Once again, Christians have been fighting a moral battle with unbelievers and not heeding the advice of 1 Corinthians 5: 9-13. Why do Christians use the Bible against unbelievers who don’t believe the Bible in the first place? It’s like Greeks using Homer to prove that the gods exist.
We should be firmly against it in our own circles but not taking it further than that politically. Christians should also keep in mind that it is not an unpardonable sin.
There are plenty of ways to help young and older mother’s make better choices. Let’s focus on those avenues and leave the political realm. This is how the early Christians dealt with it in their time.
On the other hand, we could focus on proving consciousness at a certain fetal stage and using medicine’s own definitions against abortion. A fetus is conscious and aware around 6 mo. No abortions should be done after that ethically unless the mother is at risk. Facts and medical ethics not religious morals is the battle that should be raged politically. #inconvenienttruth#weveinheritedlies#abortionrights
Midwife Mondays... if you saw the sun rise flexing your patience muscle for someone giving birth, I hope you get the space you need this week to balance that. I hope you get it if you have a day full of pelvic exams ahead of you, will counsel on birth control options all week, provide abortions or offer them, teach a class to students or colleagues, chart for hours on end, whatever your duties as a midwife require of you. We don’t all catch babies but every one of us midwifes (v. to midwife) and that takes a certain type of energy. #thanksmidwives What’s your definition of that verb?? #childbirtheducation#abortionrights#thepill#holdingspace#notjustforbabies#womxn#womxnshealth#midwifemondays#tiredandhappy
america. the place where you have to beg to be treated like a human being.
the place where you're treated differently base on your race, ethnicity, nationally, age, gender, financial status, color of your skin. the place where police can abuse their power. the place where guilty white people can walk freely. the place where latinos, black etc can get killed, arrested, beaten up for simply breathing. the place where children, babies, people can get killed in school. the place where children get separated from their parents. the place where they let men make decisions for women. the place that protect rapists and murderers. the place that can get you killed for liking the same gender, being a different gender you're born as, supporting lgbtq+. this is america?
It is insane how little support there is out there for women in a crisis. How we look down on the teen mum and make her feel ashamed instead of building her up. The pro-choice argue the choice should be yours but the choice should be safe sex! abstinence! or adoption! Educate our children for crying out loud! I once was pro-choice and now I strongly advocate that all lives matter no matter how small. Its all to do with corrupt governments and leaders, over-population and GREED! Our law allows abortion of a perfectly healthy unborn child upto 23 weeks and 6 days.. At this stage they are a fully formed human being. Instead of arguing for pro-choice do you ever sit and wonder why they really make it so easy to get an abortion and extremely difficult to get help/support/counselling that some of these women desperately need. To anybody who doesn't know how it works here in the UK. You have a 5 minute telephone consultation and bam your booked in to end the life of your unborn child.. As easy as 1,2,3. No reason why needed. No offer of support or counselling that was much needed in my case. I think I was around 10 weeks pregnant when I booked in when I was pregnant with my youngest Amelia. I was in a very abusive/toxic relationship and I knew I needed to leave him so when I found out I was pregnant I thought having another baby would make it more difficult to do so. Thank God that when my abortion date came around I just couldn't. I decided to let go of fear and choose love - I knew I would be just fine being a single mum to 3 children. But things could have easily gone in a different direction and I wouldn't have Amelia - My little princess. These abortion clinics don't give a care in the world about your circumstances or about you or your unborn child. It's all about money! As Mother Teresa put it: “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.” Abortion won't fix your problems. It shatters hearts and leaves many women feeling guilty forever. #stopabortion#babieslivesmatter#prolife#prolifegen#prolifegeneration#iamprolife#antiabortion#chooselife#womenempowerment#abolishabortion#unbornlivesmatter#unbornchildrenmatter

A reminder that women can still be imprisoned for seeking an abortion in Northern Ireland, even in cases of rape and incest. There will come a day when no one will have to protest this anymore, or talk about this anymore or make anymore artwork about it, but it’s not today.
I’m hoping this day will come in less than ONE MONTH, along with the legalisation of same sex marriage, due to the July parliamentary vote. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
“We are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your friends, and abortion is a choice we have made.” In 1985, our “Abortion Rights, Silent No More” campaign gathered more than 40,000 letters from women in every state about their experiences choosing abortion and had them read aloud in D.C. #NARAL50
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of @prochoiceamerica I can't help but think about the Supreme Court case that opened the door for abortion in the United States and the brave people who made it possible. In 1972, NARAL was a young organization with a fired up membership when Roe v. Wade made its way from a Texas district court to the Supreme Court. At the age of 26, Sarah Weddington, with political support from our NARAL team and public support from our NARAL members, argued the case on behalf of the reproductive rights of Jane Roe and women across the nation. Against all odds, we won. Justice Blackmun delivered the majority opinion in a 7-2 victory, affirming that women have the constitutional right to abortion and dismantling the TX abortion ban in one fell swoop. This moment marked a new beginning of the fight for women's equality and bodily autonomy. The hard work and dedication of so many made it possible.
This spring was a rude awakening to the reality of reproductive rights in this country. Republican legislatures in nine states passed draconian anti-abortion bans, garnering national attention and outrage for a few short weeks. But that fight isn’t over.
This fall, we have the opportunity to fight back.
Three states that passed bans this year—Kentucky, Louisiana, and Mississippi—will hold elections in November. We have the chance to hold accountable the legislators and governors who passed and signed the most anti-women legislation in decades and elect progressive officials to replace them.
Even though the bans passed this spring are not yet in effect, the dystopian, anti-reproductive health future some imagined would only come in a post-Roe world is already here for many. Today, six states have only one abortion clinic, with the number likely to rise. The Guttmacher Institute recently released a study that showed nearly one-fifth of people seeking an abortion had to travel more than 50 miles for care.
The best way to fight back against the ongoing Republican onslaught against women is to elect and champion candidates who are uncompromising in their support for reproductive rights. If anyone was uncertain that the women who propelled a record number of new female candidates into Congress last November cared about getting rid of Trump, polls consistently show a huge gender divide between men and women in support for Trump.
Seit Ende der 1960er Jahre begannen Frauen* in ‚consciousness-raising Gruppen’ über ihre persönlichen Beziehungen zu Männern*, über Sexualität, Schwangerschaft, Kindererziehung und Gewalt zu sprechen, dadurch wurden diese Bereiche erstmals politisiert. Die zweite Frauenbewegung der 1970iger Jahre hat dann mit Sprüchen wie „Das Private ist politisch“ oder „Das Persönliche ist politisch“ für ihre Rechte gekämpft. Wir sagen auch: das Private ist politisch! Sexualität ist politisch! @amandapalmer hatte drei Schwangerschaftsabbrüche, seit das Schwangerschaftsabbruchsrecht in den USA unter Beschuss stand, fing sie an darüber zu twittern, einen Song darüber zu schreiben und während ihrer Shows darüber zu reden, gerade eben deswegen, weil die Situation erfordert, dass das Private noch immer politisch ist! #abortion#abortionrights#mybodymychoice#trustwomen#theprivateispolitical
