alullaby: “Dignity and respect is what the self-titled sidewalk counselors (purported Christians) deny the women they harass every morning at the DC metro area clinic where I volunteer. They make immediate assumptions about women approaching the building. They make immediate assumptions about those of us working there. They have little hesitation about bursting into violent, condemning rhetoric....

Going home or getting together with relatives for the holidays is always a stressful time, but if your family members are the type who regularly protest outside the local Planned Parenthood, you know that this holiday is going to be a doozy. “Luckily, we have some tips for surviving those awkward conversations.

pplm: The Obama administration has issued regulations requiring insurance coverage for birth control with no co-pays, but anti-women’s health groups and their allies in Congress have been fighting tooth and nail to take that coverage away. We can’t let them succeed — not after fighting so hard to secure coverage for preventive care that is so critical for women. Please ask President Obama to...

Stfu Hypocrites: Have some facts everybody! →
oligarchies: Since the abortion tag is filled with people who are desperately misinformed today, I thought I’d put together a handy dandy fact sheet to clear some things up: Fact #1: Regardless of whether abortion is legal or not, the same amount of people seek to terminate their pregnancies. The only variable is the mortality rate of those carrying the fetus. Source [bottom right, ‘Abortion...

billytable: was pretty awesome. Fort Myers is a pretty conservative town with a growing number of young people and liberals, and we felt we needed to be heard. The anti-choice sign holders outside the Planned Parenthood in Fort Myers have never been counter-protested, and we felt it necessary to defend an important organization and our rights. Madison and I had four signs, “Pro Choice. My...

prolongedeyecontact: An Indiana mother recently accompanied her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend to one of Indiana’s Planned Parenthood clinics, but they unwittingly walked into a so-called “crisis pregnancy center” run by an anti-abortion group, one that shared a parking lot with the real Planned Parenthood clinic and was designed expressly to lure Planned Parenthood patients and deceive...

Why I love Planned Parenthood
I have been working with Planned Parenthood for a little over four years now. I started as a teen volunteer with the education branch, peer-educating teens in my county on STIs, Birth Control, Dating Violence, and Teen Parenting. Throughout my work with the Teen Council, I became interested in the political branch of Planned Parenthood. I started volunteering with the Public Affairs department,...
Anonymous asked: So... what does that mean, then? Obviously it's a fantastic thing... but I think I read somewhere that there's a chance that by trying to pass it (and the fact that it failed) it would strengthen Roe vs. Wade? Or... something like that....

If it weren't for Planned Parenthood
If it weren’t for Planned Parenthood, I would have never had reproductive health care. Thanks to this amazing and generous organization, I have been able to receive my annual woman’s check up every year since I was 13 and they have provided me with the necessary tools to protect myself ever since I have been sexually active FOR FREE. The “pro-life” movement has this idea...

“There will be some things that’ll have to be worked out at a later date,” Greg Sanders, a spokesperson for the “Yes on 26” campaign, told HuffPost. “As you well know, there will be more than likely a stay of who knows how many months to come up with common sense legislation, but plain and simple this seeks to establish human life in the womb.” ...

40 Days for Life is a national campaign to set up 24-hour vigils outside of abortion clinics. The group claims “victories” when they bully or guilt women out of receiving abortion and other reproductive services. Their presence creates a climate of shame and harassment outside of clinics and health care centers. In Seattle and the surrounding area, the group has targeted several Planned...
Bébinn: For All Your Pro-Choice Needs!: Choice! →
bebinn: I just reblogged a list on someone’s personal pro-choice philosophy, which has already garnered a number of positive responses. Nessfraserloves correctly pointed out that not all of the items on the list were choices - I assume the points addressing sexuality and gender identity. However, there are some things to consider about the other choices on the list. We know choice doesn’t...
Susie O'Brien on moving abortion protesters →
clementineford: The Herald Sun’s Susie O’Brien argued today that if the Lord Mayor is going to move along Occupy Melbourne protesters because they’ve ‘made their point’, he should also move along the protesters who’ve been harassing women outside the Fertility Control Clinic on Wellington Parade. The difference between the two groups is that Occupy Melbourne protesters were in City Square for a...
