Sorry, white supremacists, you can't have the canon. It belongs to everyone. Also, art and right wing prejudice rarely mix.

Yes, prolifers are spreading lies that will do nothing to save unborn lives.

Trump is the least prolife president since Jackson.

I just read up on it. I'm troubled because while yes, suspicion is not proof, how on earth are ten year old victims supposed to have proof that they were abused? Also in the world of rape stats unreported assaults are much more common than false accusations. It's all very sad.

The smell of my morning coffee reminded me of Rome, but even after clicking my heels together three times I'm still in Ohio, people are still throwing their trash in the lawns, and casserole is cuisine.

Have they? I mean, the only people I see making this presumption are Pell defenders. Presuming him innocent AFTER a conviction (as opposed to "til proven guilty").

There's a guy on Facebook I've blocked because he's constantly harassing me ever since I wrote a piece criticizing comparisons of abortion to the Holocaust. He thinks I'm an evil person because I think you shouldn't compare women in difficult situations to genocidal monsters.

I just want to say that when it comes to passing the Bechdel test, I'm pretty sure my recently completed novel makes the dean's list. (Don't ask me about the fic I wrote in my teens though).

A friend of mine (who is prolife), grieving the loss of his premature baby twins, is being re-traumatized by "prolifers" sending him mendacious info about hospitals "refusing to save lives of infants." This infanticide rhetoric is hurting good people. Cut it out.

Four innocent Sikhs were kicked off a plane today because this woman was scared of how they looked. Please watch and share this video to understand how hate hurts us all. (see thread below for more info on the Sikh religion and identity)

Ordinarily I would say it's a life issue, so it should be legislated - but that a) doesn't seem to work to reduce abortion, b) leads to a lot abuses of women.

And lastly, I'm so sorry these people have tried to appropriate your story. And so glad you and your baby lived!

I'd like to see fewer abortions happen. I'd like to see a culture that cherishes all life, in all stages. The prolife movement is not that culture.

The same people who tell us this shrug off the deaths of refugee children, saying "their parents shouldn't have come here illegally." That's why I know it's not life they care about.
