Worldwide, women are being tortured because of denial of medical services; medical services that have been in practice for thousands of years (more on that in a soon to come post). Continue reading Women in America, We Cannot Forget Irish Women in Need of Abortion… Solidarity
I feel so sad for all the women in need of abortion… I have been one of them (and who is to say how many times? why should it matter?)- Thankfully I had mine a few months before Texas went even more crazy. On my YouTube channel I have the most insane comments that just make me shake my head and leave me at a loss as to what to say in response. Speaking to anti’s is like speaking to a cracked wall. But more on that later.

It is very depressing for me to hear that the sickening Governor Rick Perry, TX, (R) has signed such an anti-woman, anti-choice, anti-medical and anti-health care bill. I have no doubt women will fight, I have no doubt the women of Texas will; but I also believe we as a people need to inform ourselves.

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.
Things have been so busy lately it wasn’t until tonight I checked my YouTube account and found some surprise comments on my abortion video (see below)
I received some very kind messages and comments, as well as ones that made me feel as if maybe I can make a difference sharing my story; the number of people doesn’t matter. To the people who are kind and interested, I owe so many thanks to.
Of course, I got plenty of hate comments too from “Anti’s” – I didn’t read them, have no intention to, I deleted them but I did skim over enough to see some of what they asked so I’m going to give yet another brief post about why having an abortion is not evil, for those who have very thick heads. Let’s begin!
Continue reading Few Answers to Anti Comments on my Abortion Video 🙂
I can’t believe the depths some people are willing to lower themselves in order to make others (in this case, women and also R__ survivors) feel like they are beneath them or lower than them. Tonight as I watch the tweets roll in regarding #SB5 and #HB60 for the rights of women in Texas to have choices I’ve seen some amazing, truly mind blowing things. Taking health care clinics down around the state of Texas, the second largest state in the U.S. is going to make things “safer for women”…no, not in any way, shape or form.
As I’ve noted before I do not regret my late-term abortion one bit. It was a hard choice for me simply because I would have liked to had a family but deep inside I know and knew then it was wrong; not just for me, but for the fetus as well. It would have been a crime to bring anyone into this world, and I couldn’t handle the pregnancy, anyhow. But that’s my business to be discussed another time, perhaps.
I know if I am to be a good journalist and writer I should refrain from calling names but I assure you, in this case “idiot” is the best and nicest name I can conjure up. This evening this idiotic anti posts tweets stating something of the like: (paraphrasing but this is pretty accurate:) Continue reading My Rant on Pro-Choice & Pro-Abortion Proceedings…
Another pro-choice, aka, pro-life post from yours truly. Today I said one of many reasons I support abortion. Of course, anti-choice/anti-life attackers came to debate. I don’t debate online, especially on twitter, because it’s pointless. Same argument that has no legitimacy and what they were saying was not even relevant to what I said. Because of a serious family issue I was in no mood to argue. But now, I think I will sit here and write a nice rant for all to read.
Abortion saves women from suicide.
I did not say the majority of pregnant women attempt suicide, I said, it saves women from it. Continue reading Don’t Be Ashamed of Abortion – Let’s Not Go Back in Time America…
