planned parenthood fundraiser

Fundraising for Texas Planned Parenthood -- with a twist - syne is raising money for ipod nanos for PP for the women who are currently being verbally tortured before they're permitted the right to exercise dominion over their own bodies. We shouldn't have to go through this to own our bodies; those women should not have to listen to this to be allowed--to be allowed, not entitled by virtue of the fact they were born in that flesh and bone, not practicing natural ownership of themselves, to be allowed--to get an abortion.

She's met her goal, but please continue to donate if you can.

a statement of intent

Wow, so this is something I never thought I'd have to say:

Do not post anti-choice, pro-verbal-torture bullshit as a comment in my journal. It will not be responded to and it will be screened and/or deleted.

Also, fuck yourself.

In the spirit of that, from my earlier entry:

[profile] synedochic - Fundraising for Texas Planned Parenthood -- with a twist - syne is raising money for ipod nanos for PP for the women who are currently being verbally tortured before they're permitted the right to exercise dominion over their own bodies. We shouldn't have to go through this to own our bodies; those women should not have to listen to this to be allowed--to be allowed, not entitled by virtue of the fact they were born in that flesh and bone, not practicing natural ownership of themselves, to be allowed--to get an abortion.

The goal has been met, but Syne is contacting other clinics. She has also linked to several resources for those who would like to contribute in other ways.

This has been a very bad week for the most part, so I didn't get a chance to say this earlier to Syne, but thank you. My state is actively, personally destroying women's lives. One hundred and thirty thousand women were affected by the defunding of WHP. The state budget itself was gutted on women's reproductive health care. I'm a public servant for a state that is committing an atrocity, openly, happily, righteously, against women, and I'll be honest, I'm not dealing with this well and I do not see a time in the near future that I will be.

So you know, if you have feelings about women's bodies, they better start with the word absolute autonomy. I live in the state that is fucking women over actively right now. I will not deal with people doing it with words here as well.
