PLEASE SHARE Off-Duty Officer Attacks Black Woman; Breaks Shoulder-Needs Surgery Funds, No Media Attention.

In Kentucky, one early morning, Antwynette Houston pulled into a shop with her 9 year old son. An off duty police officer approached her over something as insane as how her car was parked….

This guy for all she knew could have been anyone, he just stated he was a cop, and refused, refused, to call the police or show his badge; in any way identify himself as an actual cop.  After verbally harassing her for awhile, she was dragged out of her car and brutally attacked by an off duty police officer.

Turns out he wasn’t even an officer, he’s a Sergent- doesn’t work the streets – but felt the need to harass this Black woman over ‘how she was parked.’ For that, she winds up being yanked out of her car -after she told him she had just had surgery a year prior,- breaks her shoulder & causing other serious injuries.

I feel her telling you is so much more powerful than anything I can say, so I beg you to please watch her video. She is in need of a 3rd surgery; in need of attention and justice. Let’s do all we can to help her get her life back on track- lord knows what this has done to her traumatically… This is exactly why we -anyone who cares for human rights in general but especially Black Lives Matter- need to help and bring attention to her traumatic case…

Black Female, Ralkina Jones, “I don’t Wanna Die in Your Cell”-Caugh on Video

Ralkina Jones was 1 of 5 women to die in just the month of July 2015 alone. Now we have a 16 year old Black female by the name of Gynnya McMillen – click here to learn the information that we do know.

This originally happened last year, but no story needs to go forgotten or untold. SAY HER NAME! Article Begins:

The death of Ralkina Jones, the 37-year-old woman who was found dead in her Cleveland Heights Police Department jail cell back in July after being arrested two days before, has been ruled accidental by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The official report lists Jones’ cause of death as sudden cardiac death in association with “postural tachycardia syndrome and obesity with amphetamine therapy.”

Excerpt from Ralkina Jones’ autopsy reportCuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office

Jones, who was arrested July 24 following a dispute with her ex-husband, did mention that she had several medical conditions, including postural tachycardia syndrome, which were documented by officers, and she was reportedy treated. When officers saw that she seemed lethargic the following day, she was taken to a hospital, where she was evaluated and treated, before being returned to the jail. By July 26, however, she was found unresponsive in her cell bed.

Jones was one of at least five black women who died in police custody in July. Her death came a little over a week after Sandra Bland’s jail-cell death in Texas, which prompted questions and suspicions about Bland’s treatment and the treatment of black inmates in general.

While Jones was being booked, she was seen on video telling officers, “I don’t want to die in your cell.”

I Finally Found The Christian Woman Who Has a Pro-Abortion Support Line!

YAY! So, if you’ve kept up with my blog or read any bit of my abortion resources page you should know I’ve been searching for a certain abortion support hotline for Christians. In short, this Christian woman, a pastor’s wife, to be exact, had had an abortion when she was younger. She remained in silence for many years but she says she feels no regrets from it, rather, relief! Finally, a Christian I can respect!

Long story short, because she felt sadness for the women who have to keep silent due to societies zealous lies and misguided hatred, the story inspired the opening of a hotline for women that have had an abortion. I assume it is more directed towards Christian women, but I am sure they would accept anyone. Their first statement is:

“Inspired by their minister’s story, activists at a New York church launch an abortion hotline that offers support without judgment.

She goes on to say something that makes me love her, because I feel she is genuine. I must admit, I have a hard time trusting Christians, but I think this woman is absolutely a blessing to all women, but more specifically to Christian women out there who need other Christians to support them through their abortion. She won my heart over with the following statement:

Her reaction to the abortion itself was sheer relief, and she’s never had regrets. But she felt silenced, she says, and realized that she “spent years carrying around shame from that.”

Anderson says, “It breaks my heart that people are suffering because of something that has left them so stigmatized, feeling guilt, shame, and regret, when they could move on.”

Expose the Dangerous, Cold Lies of Crisis Prenancy Centers (CPC)

(Note: THIS WEBSITE WILL BE ACTIVE STILL- MAINLY FOCUSING ON WAR ON PEOPLE/DRUGS, POLICE BRUTALITY, ETC) While this site will remain active as a site dedicated to police brutality, harmful laws, the war on the people er the war on drugs, etc, I am currently working on separate website that will be dedicated solely to news dedicated to the struggle for women’s rights, including rights for abortion and against domestic violence. I will have that link up soon along with changes to this page made.

In the mean time, I thought I’d post this up in hopes of anyone out there thinking of going to one of these “Crisis Pregnancy Centers” will think twice.

Also, be sure to check out this link where more the lies spewed by Ken Cuccinelli and his supporters are exposed and really, seeing the video or reading the text – either way – it is clear to see how messed up these people are in the head. Nicest way of putting it.

Oh and as a side note, having an abortion did not ruin my life. It wasn’t the most fun thing I’ve done, all women feel differently and that’s okay… But for me, almost a year later, I can say I feel a great RELIEF because I know without a doubt (as I did then) that it was the right choice. Not just for me, but morally. Abortion is not evil, it is not wrong. Stay strong and listen to your HEART – no one else.

A few months ago I made a video explaining why that day I became so aware of the right choice I had made by having a late term abortion. You can view it by clicking HERE. I must note, I ramble a lot in videos lol I am not the best at speaking on camera, but I’m working on it! Maybe in time… 🙂 _ Still plan to have that abortion question / answer video up! Everything has just taken so much longer than I had planned for!

Dangerous Lies Told by Anti-Choice “Crisis Pregnancy Centers”

By

Ali on August 15, 2013 12:37 PM

Have you ever seen advertisements that read “Pregnant? Scared?” or offer free pregnancy tests? Those are marketing tactics by anti-choice “crisis pregnancy centers” (CPCs) aimed at luring women through their doors in order to deceive and shame them out of choosing abortion.

NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Foundation recently investigated CPCs in their state to expose the lies and misinformation CPC employees tell women.

Here are a few of the most egregious lies that CPCs tell women who believe they’re getting honest medical advice, debunked:

CPC Lie #1: Abortion causes breast cancer.

Truth: This claim has been refuted by the American Cancer Society, the American Medical Association, and the National Cancer Institute. The most respected scientific studies all show that abortion care does NOT increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer.

CPC Lie #2: Abortion will ruin your chances of having children in the future.

Truth: Another unfounded claim. The Guttmacher Institute explains, “The preponderance of evidence from well-designed and well-executed studies shows no connection between abortion and future fertility problems.” And according to the Mayo Clinic, abortion (both surgical and medical) does NOT harm a woman’s chance of getting pregnant or having a healthy pregnancy in the future.

CPC Lie #3: Abortion is extremely dangerous.

Truth: The National Abortion Federation reports that legal abortion is one of the safest medical procedures performed in the U.S. today. Of the women who received early care – when the majority of women end their pregnancies – “97% percent of women report no complications, and less than 0.5% have more serious complications that require some additional surgical procedure and/or hospitalization.” In fact, the complication rate of legal, medically supervised, first-trimester abortion in the United States is significantly lower than the complication rate of most other common outpatient procedures.

CPC Lie #4: Having an abortion will ruin your life.

Truth: The decision to end a pregnancy is a deeply personal one and can elicit a wide variety of emotions, but research has found that “[w]hile some women may experience sensations of regret, sadness or guilt after an abortion, the overwhelming responses are relief and happiness.” Another Guttmacher study found that most women do not feel regret after having an abortion procedure. In order to make the best decision for her and her family, a woman must have accurate and comprehensive information. If CPC employees really cared about women’s mental health, they wouldn’t subject them to coercion and shame.

These lies are designed to scare women out of choosing abortion care. When a woman doesn’t have honest information about her options, it could endanger her reproductive health. And it’s happening across the country. There are 34 states that currently support these dangerous centers with taxpayer dollars. Is your state one of them?

A Woman in Desperate Need of Abortion Needs Help – & Fast – Please Read & Share!

We as women all need, and deserve, better treatment than this. Any lifelife meaning a human not a fetus which is not an infant or baby until born- is worth more than any amount of money. But the government and religious zealots feel otherwise, as we see. Abortion should be legal, safe and free. But because our health care system and our government are failing us, we as a people need to join together and help others, even if it’s only a dollar…

I talk about my abortion a lot but honestly had I not been able to have mine I would have taken my life. I note this so often because I think and fear for women and girls who are in the same shoes I was in, but in a state that doesn’t legally allow abortions. I was lucky enough to have the Lilith Fund and Whole Women’s Health help me fund my late term abortion. But the Lilith Fund was struggling before Texas government took women’s health care decades backwards. Now, they need your help more than ever.

However, this post is about a woman whom is going by the name of Alice.

Alice* needs your help

She’s already on her way to the clinic for a procedure she doesn’t know if she can afford.

Alice just learned about her pregnancy two days ago, and her Medicaid insurance will not cover an abortion. To add to the complexity, she has been on medicines for several months now that are dangerous to pregnancy. Now, she’s had to leave her children to travel to Washington, D.C., for an abortion she’s still $2,800 away from being able to afford.

Alice has raised money from friends and family, from her local abortion funds, and the clinic itself has even chipped in, but she still needs your help this weekend. Can she count on you?

* – Not her real name.

Please visit the site here and donate if you are able; if not, please spread this page and make sure she gets the help and care she deserves and should have the right to, if it were not for the failure of the American government.
