Sometimes I get the urge to unfollow all the feminist tumblrs on my dashboard because it’s getting way too depressing. Louisiana is trying to make it completely illegal to get an abortion EVEN in cases where the mother’s life is in danger. The House is trying to pass a bill to make it illegal to use federal funds to even teach doctors how to perform abortions. The two NYC cops accused...

walkforchoice: …put forward by Rep. John LaBruzzo (R – Metarie). The bill would outlaw all forms of abortion, even if it is medically necessary to save the mother’s life.

Abortion Saved My Life
karnythia: So, there’s this lawmaker out of Kansas who has lots to say about abortion. He’s currently best known for saying that women should plan ahead in case of rape and not expect their regular insurance to cover an abortion if they want one after being assaulted. And we could spend a lot of time going around about the flaws in his logic, or even hashing out when life begins, but really this...
