abortion is safe

If you have a vagina and are on Obamacare or use Planned Parenthood as your health care provider, etc please look into getting a birth control implant. Just in case. Trump has said he plans to defund planned parenthood, get rid of obamacare, and possibly criminalize abortions. You deserve to be safe. I know you can get an implant that lasts 5 years. See what your doctor says about it. Stay healthy, vagina pals.

As someone who may never be able to have my own biological children, I will fight for a woman’s choice to have an abortion.

Yes, even if she’s wealthy.

Yes, even if she is married.

Yes, even if she’s of a healthy child bearing age.

Yes, even if she’s in a loving and healthy relationship.

Yes, even though it was her choice to have sex in the first place.

Yes, even if she chose to have unprotected sex.

Yes, even if she’s a sex worker.

All of this goes for people who are pregnant, but not a woman, as well.

If you’re pregnant and don’t want to be, you should have access to comfortable and safe abortions.

The Trump Administration Is Coming, So Now What? Answers to Your Health Care Questions

A lot of folks are asking if they can still get their health care at their local Planned Parenthood health centers. Let us reassure you: Our health centers are open, and Planned Parenthood is here to stay.

Here are answers to some of the questions we’re getting from concerned patients and supporters.


Q: Did the election make abortion illegal?

A: No. Safe, legal abortion is still the law of the land.

The election didn’t make abortion illegal overnight. Politicians who oppose safe and legal abortion won many elections on November 8 — including the Presidential race — but the laws haven’t changed yet. As of today, you have the exact same access to abortion that you had before the election, and it’ll only change if the laws are changed.

If you want to have an abortion, contact your nearest Planned Parenthood health center.


Q: Did Planned Parenthood get shut down?

A: Nope. Our doors are open, and they’re staying open.

Planned Parenthood health centers are open as usual, and staff are doing what they’ve always done: Getting up in the morning; opening the health center doors; and providing expert, affordable health care to anyone who needs it.

Looking for birth control, emergency contraception, STD testing, cancer screening, pelvic exams, pregnancy testing, abortion, or a place to discuss your pregnancy options? Contact your nearest Planned Parenthood health center. Some health centers offer hormone replacement therapy and other services, too.


Q: I’m worried about my health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Should I make all my doctors appointments ASAP?

A: Yes, it’s always important to schedule needed doctor’s appointments. And if you don’t have health insurance, it’s not too late to sign up through the Affordable Care Act.

It’s never a bad idea to make the health care appointments you need and get on top of your preventive care while you have coverage. The Affordable Care Act — and all its benefits like full coverage of preventive care including birth control — won’t go away unless there is a change in law.

If you don’t have health insurance, you can enroll now. The deadline is January 31, 2017. If you enroll by December 15th, your coverage can kick in as early as New Year’s Day. If you already have coverage under ACA, you can update your information or look for a new plan until January 31st.

Most people who are uninsured get financial help to buy a plan. Check out PlannedParenthoodHealthInsurancefacts.org to find the plans you’re eligible for and which ones include Planned Parenthood health centers. The site also helps you find local, in-person assistance with signing up for health insurance.


As always, be proactive about your health, and remember that Planned Parenthood is here for you no matter what.

Tennessee woman receives three new felony charges for attempting to self-induce abortion

Strict abortion laws have never meant fewer abortions. They have meant fewer safe abortions. The case of Anna Yocca — a Tennessee woman who, in September 2015, used a coat hanger to self-induce an abortion — speaks loudly to that trend. The charges against Yocca have changed a few times, but on Nov. 12, a Rutherford County, Tennessee, grand jury added a trio of felonies to her docket.

It’s election day. Please vote for Hillary. I have never been so nervous about an election. These two candidates are polar opposites and to say they’re both equally bad is false and dangerous. Trump and his VP want to strip away basic human rights for everyone who isn’t a cisgender straight white man. Say goodbye to safe abortions, marriage equality, and any future progress we would make by having a blue supreme court. Even if you don’t like Hillary, if she wins, the supreme court will go blue for the first time in decades. That’s HUGE. Human rights will move forward at an exponential rate. Hillary is qualified. She has done amazing things despite the GOP smear campaigns saying she hasn’t. 

I know none of my followers are voting for Trump, but a lot of you want to vote third party. Please do not split the vote. If you are liberal and you do not vote for Hillary, you are splitting the vote, and ultimately helping Trump win. This is dangerous. This is scary. This is real. This whole election reminds me of the rise of Hitler. 

Please, if you can, just vote.

Roe v. Wade legalized abortion 44 years ago today!

Now, more than ever, we must continue to fight to protect our right to choose! Don’t let this administration take away what we have fought so hard for.

Roe v. Wade Anniversary 2017: Everything You Need To Know About The 1973 Court Case

There have been speeches, chants and protest anthems, both soulful and scathing — but as the masses have rallied and marched against President Trump’s policies over the past two weeks, it is the signs they carried that are being stamped into memory.

Protesters turned Trump’s own words against him, with their “Nasty Woman” banners and flaunting signs that declared “This p—- grabs back.” They scorned his seemingly cozy relationship with Russia: “Tinkle tinkle little czar, Putin made you what you are.” They mocked his appearance: “We Shall Overcomb” and “Hands too small to build a wall.” They found many different ways to reject his authority:

Not my President

Not my Führer

Not my Comrade

Not my Cheeto

With a pithy mix of humor and combativeness, this is protest art for the social-media era. While many kept their messages serious and straightforward — “Refugees Welcome,” “Keep Abortion Safe and Legal” — it was the new breed of signage that went viral long after the crowds dispersed. Gaining wide circulation on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or various “best protest signs” listicles, they reached a vast audience that never went near a march or rally.

There is no such thing as an abortion free society.

There are only societies where abortion is safe, legal & available and societies where it is dangerous, lethal & criminalized.

Abortion is medical care. Abortion is a human right.

Shout out to abortion doctors.

So many of you put your lives and safety on the line, looking for loopholes, fighting laws and outright ignoring them in favour of the welfare of pregnant people and their right to a safe abortion.

14 years in prison. In Ireland you face 14 years in prison for having an abortion. Even in the case of rape. Incest. Foetal abnormalities to the point its not even viable outside the womb. Women like Savita Halappanavar have died in hospital beds from blood poisoning because doctors refused to remove the septic foetus because it still had a heartbeat. We’re expected, honestly expected to die a dignified christian death along with a foetus or face 14 years in prison. A reported 12 of us travel to England every DAY seeking safe abortion. So what of those who can’t travel, can’t afford to or are unable to sneak away? I’m in full support of whatever strikes happen across the country. Why did they even bother closing the Laundries if they’re still going to hold our bodies hostage.

reasons why people protested obama’s inauguration:

  • they were upset their candidate didn’t win + racism

reasons why people WORLDWIDE are protesting drumpf’s inauguration:

  • they are people of color living in a nation of a trigger-happy police force
  • they are lgbt+ now officially living under an administration who thinks they should be tortured 
  • they are chronically ill or have disabilities and are going to lose their health insurance
  • they are going to lose access to safe abortions and other women’s health resources
  • they are working to help heal this planet from the centuries of ecological damage we have done
  • they are not okay with a candidate who was supported by the KKK
  • they are citizens of a foreign nation with relations with the US who are appalled by what has happened
  • because a candidate who was the most qualified in history won the vote by more than 3 millions votes but still lost the election
  • BECAUSE THEY DEMAND TO BE TREATED LIKE PEOPLE AND BELIEVE “THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL & INDEPENDENT, THAT FROM THAT EQUAL CREATION THEY DERIVE RIGHTS INHERENT & INALIENABLE, AMONG WHICH ARE THE PRESERVATION OF LIFE, & LIBERTY, & THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS”

these marches are a WORLDWIDE occurrence, this is not a single political party throwing a tantrum because they didn’t win. this is the entire world standing together in one voice saying that we are not going to condone any infringement on our rights and that the world deserves better leaders.
