Religious Refusal Bills →
This is beyond outrageous. If these bills pass, counselors and doctors could refuse to give help if they feel morally opposed to it. Which, really, could be anything. What happened to “first, do no harm”? I understand that there may be issues you feel strongly on. But if you want to refuse to counsel someone who may have different beliefs than you, perhaps you should consider another...

This, by the way, is the message the Stupak Amendment sends – that any pain, suffering, risk, damage, death, all of these are “worth” suffering. Even if a child is born an orphan, it’s “worth it”. I cannot accept that my life has so little worth that I must, literally, throw it away just to please a man who wants a child. I refuse to accept that. I am now 32, I am engaged to a wonderful guy, and...

For that to happen, women need to take an active role in their own reproductive health. We want to help with that.

Bus Driver Refuses to Drive Women to Planned... →
A bus driver wins his suit against a company that fired him for refusing to drive two women to Planned Parenthood. Lucky for these women who rely on public transportation, this man used his morals and beliefs to make sure these women didn’t do anything crazy, like get some birth control. Can you imagine if every driver of a public transportation vehicle was allowed to determine where you...

Let's pay poor women to not procrate →
A state representative from Louisiana, John LaBruzzo, is suggesting that the government pay poor women $1,000 to get their tubes tied. Meanwhile, he would also like to encourage more educated people with a higher income to have babies. I’m not even sure where to begin to talk about how disgusting this guy is. Meanwhile, he is also working on introducing a bill to ban abortion in the state...

Feminism for Everyone
I was going to start this little introductory post off as pretty simple, by addressing the commonly mistaken idea that men can’t be feminists. With a basic “Of course they can, anyone who believes in equal rights is a feminists”. But it does go a little deeper than that. But let’s start there. Let’s start with the Dalai Lama actually. “I call myself a...
