I'm getting an abortion tomorrow and I'm really really nervous/scared help


WELL FIRST OF ALL i am sooo proud of you for doing what you feel and know is best for you. it is a very scary thing and especially with all the stigma around it, one of the hardest things to do. but you are doing it!!! amazing!!!!

god i think im too late anyways i’ll pretend i don’t totally suck and:

  • most people experience relief after their abortion (x). along w other emos of course, but no matter what you feel, your emos are valid and normal. there is no right or wrong way on how 2 feel nerdo
  • here and here are some infographics describing your procedure! here is another site for info about how it gonna go down/aftermat.
    • know you will be safe (it’s safer than childbirth and one of da safest surgeries in general)
    • you are not alone. 1in 3 ppl w uteri have abortions
    • you won’t have long lasting physical effects (no increase in risk of breast cancer, no infertility, etc)
  •  exhale is a good after abortion talk line. so is connect and breathe and backline.
  • if anyone gives you shit when you are getting your procedure done (like those piece of shit prolifers who even create FAKE abortion clinics, and it’s completely legal omf), you can report it to the clinic 
  • you are not a bad person. no matter what anyone says be it your friends or people on the internet or your family or your religion (if you have one), you are NOT a bad person. you are SMART for knowing what is best and doing it. you are STRONG for overcoming your fear and apprehension and stigma. you are RESPONSIBLE for following through and taking your future into your own hands. you will move past this eventually and will be happy with your choice aND I WISH YOU ALL DA BEST AND I LOVE YA AND MESSAGE ME AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE IF YA WANT, TOO :-)

To all my followers with vaginas:

If you ever feel bad about yourself, just remember that you bleed out chunks of your internal organs once a month and instead of calling the hospital (unless it’s really bad, in which case you should definitely call the hospital) you stick a wad of cotton between your legs and go on with your day. You, my uterine-toting friends, are very punk rock.

Sir Elton John has vowed to boycott fashion label Dolce & Gabbana after the designers slammed same-sex families.

"We oppose gay adoptions," they told the publication. "The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed."

Dolce said that creating children “must be an act of love”, adding: “You are born to a mother and a father – or at least that’s how it should be. I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catalog. The family is not a fad. In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.”

The Your Song hitmaker has sons Zachary, four, and Elijah, two, with husband David Furnish, who were born to the same surrogate mother in Calfornia in 2010 and 2013.

Sir Elton wrote a scathing post, ranting at the designers: “How dare you refer to my beautiful children as “synthetic”.

"And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF - a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfil their dream of having children.

"Your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #BoycottDolceGabbana."

RIP dolce & gabbana’s careers

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the gay designers and former couple behind the iconic fashion brand, have gone on the record to say that “traditional” male-female families are the only real families. 

They’ve been publicly opposing same-sex marriage for years now, but this last interview takes it to a whole new level:

In an interview with Panorama magazine and translated by LGBT News Italia, the former couple and billionaire designers came out swinging.

"The only family is the traditional one. No chemical offsprings and rented uterus: life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed."

The Spanish news site ABC.es offered more comments from their Panorama interview.

Procreation “must be an act of love,” Domenico Dolce says, according to a Google translation. “I call children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteri [for] rent, semen chosen from a catalog.”

"The family is not a fad," adds Stefano Gabbana. "In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging."

What? Just…what? Do you know who you are? Do you know what year it is?

We’re both in the emergency room but for some reason you’re handcuffed to a chair?? AU

from this post, i couldn’t decide on a ship so hey! jack AND crutchie AND davey

C’mon Davey, just don’t think about it. Don’t think about how much it hurts or how stupid this whole situation is. Or how you’re spending your whole Saturday at the hospital when you’re supposed to be at the zoo with Les. Davey gritted his teeth, thinking about the adorable sea otters he could be watching, and looked around for a distraction. He’d already read ever single Reader’s Digest in the room and now knew way more about menopause than he’d ever wanted. Please, please let there be somebody to talk to so I can stop thinking about my shoulder and middle-aged uteruses. Uteri?
