Planned Parenthood x Tumblr — Never Going Back

Tumblr stands with Planned Parenthood. We believe that access to their vital healthcare services is a fundamental human right. In times like these, we must take it upon ourselves to support them on behalf of the millions of women who depend on them.

Join us on Sunday, March 12 at 6:00pm CT at Mohawk, 912 Red River Street, Austin TX during the SXSW interactive festival for the “Never Going Back” rally for Planned Parenthood.

The all-ages event is open to the public (RSVP here) and will feature live performances by Sleigh Bells, Girlpool (@girlpoool), Hoops, and PVRIS (@thisispvris). Planned Parenthood reps will be on site to share resources, literature and ways to get involved and stay active.

If you can’t join us in person, please join us in spirit with a donation to Planned Parenthood.

And if you’re in town early, Tumblr CEO David Karp and Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards will be discussing the importance of activism and allyship on the SXSW stage on March 10 with moderator Aminatou Sow, Editor-at-Large at Racked.

Send a love note to Paul Ryan who has turned off ALL of his public telephones & fax machines in response to protests in favor of Obamacare, Planned Parenthood, Medicare, etc. And he is NOT accepting signed petitions; instead he’s TURNING AWAY voters who deliver the petitions. So, let’s see what 67 million postcards looks like in his driveway. I understand he does not want to hear from those who feel that Medicare, Affordable Care and Planned Parenthood is important. But, he is an elected official. It’s part of the job and we all pay his salary. Even if you voted for Trump, if you receive Medicare, the quality of your health care may be at risk.
Please start mailing postcards to his HOME:

I now officially have foreign objects inserted into my fallopian tubes. It was definitely an unpleasant procedure, but the staff was wonderful and the aftercare was sufficient and I am very pleased. Or as much as I can be while still being high on xanax, vicodin, industrial-strength ibuprofen, and body trauma.

Thank you, Planned Parenthood. <3

It has begun: Paul Ryan has started the process to defund Planned Parenthood (which already gets $0 for abortion, so…WHY???)

House Speaker Paul Ryan confirmed during a news conference on Thursday that Republicans plan to strip Planned Parenthood of millions of dollars of federal funding. Ryan said that a defunding measure would appear in a bill that is expected to pass through Congress as early as next month.

Planned Parenthood reportedly blocked from delivering petitions to Paul Ryan’s office

  • Planned Parenthood volunteers arrived at House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office armed with nearly 90,000 petitions in response to GOP plans to strip the organization of its funding.
  • Ryan delivered the news at a press conference, announcing that the legislation would be folded in with the Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
  • Apparently, the House speaker wasn’t quite ready for the impending backlash: According to tweets from Planned Parenthood’s official account, volunteers were greeted by a sign on Ryan’s door informing visitors that only “scheduled appointments” would be admitted into his office.
  • The organization also alleged that six security guards had been sent to physically block the delivery of the petitions. Read more.

anonymous asked:

Should i even bother renewing my healthcare from the aca if theres a chance it will get repealed?


Yes, you should still enroll in coverage before the January 31 open enrollment deadline. When you enroll in coverage, you and the health insurance company enter into a contract that is generally binding for a year (no matter how the law changes). This means that if you enroll in coverage now then you will have coverage throughout 2017.

i’ve been very displeased with events recently. Just because a certain type of heathcare isn’t directly related to everyone doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be included. You wouldn’t say that insulin shouldn’t be covered because not everyone has diabetes right? well the same goes for birth control(and its numerous reasons for use) and women’s healthcare in general.

This woman who attributes her survivor to Planned Parenthood after she was diagnosed with cancer asked a Republican a CRUCIAL question

On Thursday night, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz held a town hall near Salt Lake City, Utah — and judging by the audience’s jeers, it doesn’t seem like it went over well. Women came out in droves to ask the hard and necessary questions about Republican plans to save their healthcare.
