Lies the anti’s tell… The past few days I’ve been reflecting a lot after reading how corrupt and money hungry these religious zealots in office are. What if last year had happened this year; how would I have saved my life? I couldn’t have. I’d be dead. It’s not me I worry about now so much though… It’s the women who feel like I did, what is to happen to them and their lives? How many deaths are we going to see…?
Before I go on, again, I apologize that I still haven’t completed the abortion video much to my annoyance; I am trying to make it organized as possible, but with all the work, volunteer and other projects I do, editing this video has proven to be a mistake. If I can’t finish the final version soon I’ll just upload the original. Same with articles and emails/messages; I’ll be back on top of things shortly.
On to the post. Due to time related issues I’ve had to wait longer than I anticipated in posting the abortion question video as well as articles on abortion and other problems in society.
Hearing from and speaking to so many women has inspired me to fight even more for the rights of women and for the right to abort. However, knowing my story; and hearing theirs has also brought me great rage.
Anti’s want to close clinics claiming they aren’t safe for women to have surgical abortions in them because one woman was taken in a car as opposed to an ambulance during a complication, and other stupid claims made up by the anti-choice government and religious zealots.
However, as the article and research below will show they are very wrong and it is not care of women they are after. This is Continue reading Abortion is Not Evil & Shouldn’t be ILLegal- & Why Has Billions Been Given to Anti Choice Groups?
Reporting an article I feel everyone should read and ask the,selves why others think they have the right to control a woman’s body and medical choices.
You’ve seen the news: When they thought no one was looking last week, state senators in North Carolina tucked several dangerous attacks on women’s health into an unrelated bill. Legislation originally meant to — yes, you’re reading this right — ban “Sharia Law” in North Carolina will now also severely restrict a woman’s ability to make deeply personal, private decisions about her pregnancy by restricting access to safe and legal abortion.
North Carolina has a proud history as a pro-choice beacon in the South. In the 1930s, we were among the first states in the country to have a state-funded family planning program. We liberalized our abortion laws before Roe v. Wade. In 1976, Congress passed the Hyde Amendment, cutting off Medicaid funding for abortion services for women with low incomes. North Carolina responded by setting up a state abortion fund, which at one point amounted to $1.5 million a year. When I started working for Planned Parenthood in 1982, North Carolina had a model, age-appropriate K-12 sex education curriculum.
Everything has changed.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: abortion saved my life. It was the hardest choice I’ve ever had to make, but it was made out of love and knowing I was right to protect a child from being born into a home that was not ready, as well as to a mother unready. Had I been forced to carry out pregnancy, I would have killed myself. The reasons I will not repeat or share more of. My husband and I both knew I couldn’t handle it, and it was not right for us at the time. So the choice was made and I have never felt such relief, ever. With that said, Continue reading Why Abortion is a RIGHT and Should Be Legal AND Accessible
