Here I go losing friends on facebook again
Someone posted this And knowing me I cannot shut up if someone’s rights are being stepped on. If you are prolife that’s fine. Its your choice not to have an abortion. But things like that photo and comments like this “ Because people don’t want to have an abortion and think that they’re actually killing a person. It keeps it off the conscience that way.” upset me. I replied saying, “A...

File Under: Way To Stay Classy AZ Summary: A pretty fitting response to the language of the bill, which, according to a Senate fact sheet, “Prohibits using any electronic or digital device, instead of a telephone, with the intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend a person.” One of the most popular Twitter accounts associated with the Anonymous community,...

seriouslyamerica: SPOILER ALERT for The Hunger Games and sequels. By Jaclyn Friedman for Good Magazine; full text at the link. The rules are set up to ensure we fail. Don’t want to have sex with Rush Limbaugh? You’re a humorless feminazi. Want to use contraception while having sex? You’re a filthy slut. Have sex without contraception and find yourself pregnant? You’re an idiot. Need an...

The FBI, the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida will investigate the killing of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old Florida high school student, who was shot by a self-appointed neighborhood watchman. “The department will conduct a thorough and independent review of all of the evidence and take appropriate action at the...
Friend — I’m officially back on the campaign trail. And it feels great to be out there. Because really, what being on the campaign trail means to me is simple: talking to you. What supporters across the country are thinking about right now is what’s going to be on our minds every day between now and Election Day. And for four years after that. So I’d like to ask you one question right now:...
What’s Behind the Conservative Attack on Women? :... →
ragingbeard: The real attraction of the birth-control issue was that it could be used to bash Obamacare. It’s not proving to be a very effective weapon, however. When birth control is uncoupled from the religious-freedom argument—and when conservatives start talking in ugly ad-hominem language, like Limbaugh’s, or clueless anachronistic language, like Santorum’s—women, in particular, do not...
Pill Baby Pill: Law Will Allow Employers to Fire... →
A proposed new law in Arizona would give employers the power to request that women being prescribed birth control pills provide proof that they’re using it for non-sexual reasons.
Dear New Hanover County Commissioners Davis, Barfield, Thompson, Berger, and...– Another email, this time to New Hanover County Commissioners. If you’re interested, their emails are: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org (via gemini-dragon)
No one’s politics should interfere with a woman’s access to birth control! Yesterday, the all-male New Hanover County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to turn down a state family planning grant that would cover contraceptives and other family planning services. When asked why he was voting to reject this grant and deny women basic health care, Commissioner Rick Catlin said he...
Help protect voting in North Carolina →
The new leadership in the NC General Assembly is pushing legislation to make voting harder for working people, senior citizens, people of color, and students. They want to shorten Early Voting, end Same-Day Registration during Early Voting, and require registered voters to show a government photo ID when they vote. Safeguards against voter impersonation are working - we don’t need to...
Anti-choice politicians across our country are out of control. What other conclusion can you draw from the all-male panel at a congressional hearing on birth control? Or what about Rush Limbaugh’s tirade against Sandra Fluke and women who think the birth-control coverage policy is a good thing? You might have read that these tactics are causing problems for our opponents. We can’t think for a...

Conservative Christianity and Its Discontents →
And what about higher education, the liberal, secular source for so much that Santorum finds disgusting? For those select few who do get an education, rather than working on a road crew, what should be taught in the classroom? “Darwin’s theory of evolution should not be taught as absolute fact in the science classroom,” he has mused. On law and history Santorum squares off against what he sees...
"Sex Strike" to support women's rights to... →
On the one hand, I think this says something great that men have to have sex as well for a baby. It takes two to tango and it’s not just “keeping your legs closed.” On the other hand, my boyfriend fully supports a woman’s right to contraception and supports Obama’s legislation so I’m not sure what withholding sex from him would accomplish xD

A similar law passed in South Dakota but has been held up in courts. In response to the passage of that law, NARAL posted this piece in...

Dear MoveOn member, When Rosa Parks refused to leave her seat and launched the Montgomery bus boycott, it wasn’t just a spontaneous decision. She’d been trained in nonviolent direct action at a place caller the Highlander Center. And the brave folks who organized the freedom rides and the lunch-counter sit-ins had similar training. Now, from the Wisconsin workers who took over their...

Article From Daily Tech: Republican Senator John McCain’s new cybersecurity bill has caught some negative attention from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). McCain’s cybersecurity bill, which was introduced last week, supports the voluntary sharing of information instead of regulation of “critical industries” by the Department of Homeland Security. The bill also...

fuckyeahplannedparenthood: somepolitics: The Arizona Senate on Tuesday approved a bill that would allow doctors withhold information about prenatal problems if it could make the decision to have an abortion more likely. I don’t really have any words to express how angry this makes me. What is even more upsetting is that a woman introduced this measure. Barto claimed that a doctor could...

Hello World, My name is Tiffany. I am the other co-owner of this blog. I have always considerated myself an independent but recently I feel more and more liberal. I wanted to start this blog for a few reasons. One is that while talking to Amy I said something like I don’t care that money equals speech now but speech still equals speech.

Hi there Tumblrites. I am Amy, one of the co-owners of this blog. Just a quick blurb to introduce myself before we get on to more important issues.

I am 23 years old and graduated with a teaching degree. Yay, Amy is a...
