'I Think She Was A She' Proudly Proclaims There's No Shame In Having An Abortion

In the slam poem “I Think She Was A She,” spoken word poet and performance artist Leyla Josephine recounts the abortion she had as a teenager and the cultural shame she’s been constantly confronted with ever since.

Be brought to tears when you watch Leyla recite the full moving poem here.

This is the thing people think should have more rights and personhood than pregnant people. This is just biological tissue. Just because an organism is alive, does not make it a person. It doesn’t have rights. 
Being “alive” and being a life are two different things. People want THIS to have more legal rights and protection than walking, talking, breathing, feeling, thinking human beings.
The people who oppose choice have no souls. They have no hearts. And it’s no secret they have no brains. I will continue to despise them every moment I live.
I cannot believe we still have to protest this shit in the 21st century. This should be common sense by now. A fetus is not a life. A pregnant person is.

So, just to recap.. Darren Wilson’s fund exceeded $200,000 and was flooded with “thanks for killing the thug” messages and was permitted to continue. They had no problem taking their cut of the racist pie of the death of Michael Brown. But probirth ignoramuses get to cry about someone using it to fund an abortion and they take it down. 

Is your money better served NOT using GoFundMe as a fundraising site? Yes! There are several other crowdfunding sites. (GiveForward.com, YouCaring.com are so far the highest visited according to sites post Darren Wilson fundraiser)

So if you have a fundraiser, don’t use GoFundMe. Their racism and probirth nonsense can milk the ignorant for all they’re worth or bottom out for all I care. Let GoFundMe know on Twitter that you stand with choice and will no longer be using their service and will spread the word that racism and shutting down of choice will not be tolerated. 

Fuck gofundme. Never use them again.

"We have anti-choice women having abortions all the time. Many of them are just innocent and ignorant until they meet an unwanted pregnancy. Many of them are not malicious. They just have not thought enough about it until you are completely affected. They can judge your friends, family, or other women. But suddenly they become pregnant. Suddenly they see the truth. That this should be only the choice of them. Unfortunately, many also think that somehow they are different from everyone else and they deserve to have an abortion, while others don’t."

a doctor from Washington, about abortion (here you can see (in portuguese) several excerpts from stories of abortion clinics that show the hypocrisy of the anti-abortion folks)

it’s really really sad see that those women continue in “pro-life” activist, even after have abortions, because they are taken by guilt of being a “killer”

Alabama judge shuts down anti-abortion law with perfect gun analogy 

A law that would have shut down three out of five abortion clinics in the state of Alabama has just been temporarily struck down by a judge using the most immaculate analogy of all reproductive time. U.S. District Judge Myron Thomson ruled that the Alabama legislation, passed in 2013, imposed the unnecessary restriction of having admission privileges to hospitals and therefore posed an “undue burden” on women to get the, let us reiterate, legal, procedure in the state.
Since the proposed law threatens to close down all clinics except for those in Huntsville and Tuscaloosa, the judge suggested that the same law applied to guns would face gross opposition. 
According to Al.com, he proposed a scenario in which gun regulations would force the state to close down all but two stores who sell guns, forcing residents of the state to only buy guns at these two stores. 
The comparison is apt | Follow micdotcom

NOT A JOKE: Photos from Personhood for Women

Also, check out National Advocates for Pregnant Women, org that stands up for the rights of women (often the ones with the least means) who have no way of  debunks bad science and challenges religious lunatics in courts. 

What.

I can’t find any actual court cases. Not saying they don’t exist, but kind of odd they aren’t linked to.

If true - absolutely disgusting and the system needs to change.

If not true - argh Jesus Christ Tumblr.

Meant to say, related cases also cited (in addition to on National Advocates For Pregnant Women website) in these videos: http://huff.to/I2qjyl
