Um. WHAT.
Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s wife is on the board of a crisis pregnancy center, a name for organizations that use lies, manipulation, and delay tactics to prevent people from getting an abortion. Their page on the risks of abortion is full of junk science, decades-old studies, and logical leaps, and their resources for pregnant women are virtually all deceptive crisis pregnancy centers.
No wonder Scalia defends anti-abortion harassment masking itself as “sidewalk counseling.” The Supreme Court is currently hearing a case on buffer zones outside abortion clinics, which would keep protestors a respectful (and safe) distance from patients and staff. Justice Scalia is clearly biased and should recuse himself from the case. This is ridiculous.

America in a nutshell.

Think about it…

This is utter bullshit. Wanna watch while I debunk all of your fucking nonsense? Okay, here we go.

The American Cancer Scotiety, the National Cancer Institute and the American Medical Association have all refuted any link between abortions and breast cancer.

The Guttmacher Institute and The Mayo Clinic have both stated that abortion is a safe procedure and poses no major threats to infertility or miscarriages. 

The American Psychological Association has proven there is no “post abortion syndrome” and that they are not 6 times as likely to kill themselves. In fact, the huge majority feel relief,  So I guess that takes care of your nonsense about 65% increased risk of depression. 

Go read up before you come to play with the big kids. - Leigh

..Paul Ryan (R-WI) was busy protecting rapists’ rights. Buried deep in the latest Fetus Rights Bill (aka, Sanctity of Human Life Act , H.R. 23: To provide that human life shall be deemed to begin with fertilization), wherein feti are given more rights than the women carrying them, is a section that will allow a rapist to sue his victim in order to stop her from getting an abortion, specifically if she were trying to get an abortion in a state that allows them while she lives in a state that does not.”

In other words:
1) If you are a woman and live in a state that considers women to be nothing more than baby making machines, you’re out of luck. Get raped? Carry a baby.
2) But if you are a woman who happens to live in a state that considers you a person, even if you’re not in a womb, and you are raped and become pregnant, Paul Ryan wants the rapist to be able to sue you and stop you from terminating that pregnancy.
This man was almost Vice President.
So in the span of four years, we got a Snowbilly Grifter and a Dominionist monster all nearly one heartbeat away from the Presidency.
You voting in 2014?


Protecting rapist’s rights to further torture their victims.How very “”“pro-life”“” of you, Paul Ryan.

Horton is not a book about abortions. These notions are distortions; they’re heaping portions of deciduous contortions piled high with a side of whamdiddly dodortions.

This person took meticulous time destroying EVERYTHING that was important to me; everything that I have worked very hard for all my life. He destroyed the plumbing and heating system in the building. He then completely destroyed all my medical equipment, ripping apart, breaking every glass object, bending, stabbing knives into or punching hammer holes into, and then methodically cutting and sticking knife holes into the faces of my friends and family, including pictures of my baby grandson. In my opinion, this is NOT the act of someone who was ‘high’ and didn’t know what he was doing, but rather someone who knew EXACTLY what he was doing.
— 

Dr. Susan Cahill’s health clinic, All Families Health Care, was destroyed last week by Zachary Klundt, son of a board member for Hope Pregnancy Ministries, an anti-abortion organization.

Please donate to help Dr. Cahill repair the damage to her clinic and return to providing essential health care to Montana residents.

I have a tilted uterus and during my last pregnancy, I lost 6 liters of blood. I almost died. I can’t have this baby. Why don’t they understand that?
— 

Weeping client talking to me today.  They tried to goad her companion into a fist fight so they could call the police and have him arrested, therefore she couldn’t have the procedure.

She was crying and screaming for them to leave her alone.  They wouldn’t, and her companion got angry.

I told her that I have no idea why they can’t understand it.  My guess is, that they don’t care about you or your partner, only the fetus that could kill you.

She was very upset, so I let her and her companion wait in my car.  She thanked me and said “I’m glad you are here.  He would have hit that guy if you all had not walked with us”.

She walked into the clinic tear free, but still with anti’s trailing behind her shouting.  The escort presence gave her space and a buffer from the harassment.

That is why I escort.  That is why I do it.

Scarlet Letters: Getting the History of Abortion and Contraception Right 

Abortion was not just legal—it was a safe, condoned, and practiced procedure in colonial America and common enough to appear in the legal and medical records of the period. Official abortion laws did not appear on the books in the United States until 1821, and abortion before quickening did not become illegal until the 1860s. If a woman living in New England in the 17th or 18th centuries wanted an abortion, no legal, social, or religious force would have stopped her.


Reminder that records of contraception and abortion exist all the way back to 1550 BCE in ancient Egypt!
This was a really fascinating read. Until the early 19th century, abortion was legal until “quickening,” or when the pregnant person first felt the baby kick - anywhere from 14 to 26 weeks into the pregnancy. Society only began to condemn it when people decided white, middle- to upperclass women weren’t having enough children soon enough in their lives, and when male doctors started taking over traditionally female health care fields, like midwifery.
Yep, shockingly enough, it’s never, ever been about the life of the fetus - only about misogyny, racism, and classism (ableism, too, though the article doesn’t discuss it).

In 2011, South Dakota passed a law to require women who are seeking abortions to first visit a crisis pregnancy center (CPC).  CPCs have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose. The law was placed under injunction.  The legislature then introduced a new version in 2012.

Anti-choicers care so little about people getting abortions that they are willing to lie and KIDNAP FOLKS to harass them with an uninvited lecture and trip to a church to avoid their appointment. 
Just holy crap this is ridiculous. These people who need this rides are depending on the kindness of strangers to assist them in a very vulnerable time when they need a lot of help. And anti-choicers want to take advantage of that to push their agenda. I mean, wow. Kidnapping. This shit is straight up illegal.
Thank god there is a vetting process to be approved to provide transportation, but WOW. The stuff that goes through the heads of the antis…disgusting.
