Eliminating abortion access doesn’t eliminate abortion, it means more unsafe abortions. #NBProchoice #VoteforAccess

Photos by Douglas Mullin

The Conservative party supports the status quo in regards to abortion access in New Brunswick (approval from two doctors saying the procedure is medically necessary, must be performed in one of two approved hospitals, by a specialist). They want the people of NB to ‘say yes’ to restrictive, outdated and dangerous policy on reproductive healthcare.  No thanks.

Do you have a message for anti-choice candidates in NB? Submit a photo to NBProchoice! 

If you live in NB: on September 22, #VoteforAccess.

Reasons why I won’t shop at urban outfitters.

You may think your being cool and hip by shopping at Urban Outfitters but really you are supporting a corrupt business.  Take a few minutes to read about some of the product they have been selling.  I hope after this you stop supporting Urban Outfitters.

$129 faded Kent State University sweatshirt that appears to have a blood spatter near the armpit and hem.   Kent State massacre in 1970, the Ohio National Guard opened fire on Vietnam War protestors and killed four people. The loss of young lives at the hands of the National Guard brought shame to our country and unimaginable grief to friends and family of the victims.

Urban Outfitters’ “Eat Less” V-Neck Tee, printed on the gray v-neck is the words “Eat Less” in white cursive.  This promotes unhealthy eating habits and eating disorders.

Urban Outfitters got a little creative with color nomenclature on its website, marketing the short-sleeved, buttoned BDG Burnout Henley in White/Charcoal…and Obama/Black.

$59 cropped t-shirt was printed with the word “depression” is insensitive and repulsive.  Mental illness should not be a fashion statement.  Depression is not “cute” or “trendy” It’s a very serious struggle in so many people’s lives. 

There are countless times where Urban Outfitters has stolen small independent jewelers, fashion designers and artists.  Here are only a few…

Urban Outfitters isn’t just over priced… it’s straight up offensive.  As a consumer we have so much power, I urge you to stop shopping at Urban Outfitters.  If you care about Mental Illness I urge you to stop giving your money to Urban Outfitters.  If you want to support Independent Artists and help our art culture thrive I beg you to stop shopping at Urban Outfitters. Spread the Message about the horrible business that Urban Outfitters is and know that you have the power to make a change and stand up to big businesses like Urban Outfitters.

Remember that online fundraiser to build a pro-LGBT billboard in the Westboro Baptist Church’s hometown? It worked. Feast your eyes on the “God Loves Gays” billboard, standing proud in Topeka, Kansas for all to see. If any additional funding comes through, it will be used for bus ads in Topeka, donations to LGBT youth organizations, and possibly a similar billboard in Utah. Bless. (via the Huffington Post)

Urgent - Please Spotlight:

I regret to tell you that Christina Fonthes - a dear friend and organiser of Rainbow Noir has been held against her will in The Congo - she was on a family holiday with her mother who has decided to have Christina ‘cured’ of her sexuality. 

Christina has managed to escape from her aunt’s house and is currently hiding out with a friend. She has access to internet and has been communicating with us via email. The next available flight is 2nd September - 5 days away! Chris needs help and protection from the British Embassy in Congo but her mother has reported her missing and therefore we need to get in contact with both the UK Home Office and UK embassy in Congo to let them know that she is in danger and that her mother is lying/the one endangering her life!!

PLEASE SHARE THIS ON ALL YOUR NETWORKS. CALL, EMAIL, TWEET the British embassy on behalf of Christina - the more we call, the more attention it will bring to her case and hopefully they will act quicker in getting Christina to a safe place. 

HER MOTHER HAS HER PASSPORT AND TRAVELING DOCUMENTS!

CHRISTINA’S LIFE IS IN DANGER. PLEASE DO AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. 

If you can help please contact @RainbowNoirMCR or @WritersofColour on twitter.
