We Traveled Onboard the Irish 'Abortion Bus' That's Giving Illegal Pills to Women
VICE News traveled around Ireland with a group of women who are openly defying the country's strict abortion laws which criminalize abortions, even in cases of rape or incest.

There was a moment on Friday when a pro-life activist started flinging holy water at a pro-choicer in Limerick, a small, riverside city in Ireland’s southwest. Aine O'Connor is a dark-haired, friendly 36-year-old who seems relatively calm, but being suddenly sprayed with liquid like that gave her “quite a fright,” she said.

O'Connor didn’t know how to react, but she was quickly rescued. A barista from a local coffee shop ran to chase away the unwavering woman, who had progressed to sprinkling salt in circles on the ground, all the time chanting prayers.

Limerick was the third destination on a whistle-stop tour for the “abortion pill bus,” an action by an Irish activist group called ROSA (short for Reproductive rights, against Oppression, Sexism, and Austerity), which has seen a group of mainly young, mostly Irish women openly defy Ireland’s strict abortion laws. Those laws prohibit the distribution of medical abortion pills, and criminalize abortions in almost any situation, including in cases of rape, incest, or fatal fetal impairment.

The women, girls, and two men involved in the action are aged between 16 and 48 — the youngest skipped school to make the two-day, 409-mile trip around the country. The group are promising abortion pills to women nationwide who board the bus, following an online consultation with a doctor. Branded “reckless” and “irresponsible” by pro-life campaigners, they are also risking up to 14 years in prison.

Tumblr Trackr: How to track anonymous messages/people by xpsycho.

NO MORE ANONYMOUS BULLIES AND HATERS! I’ve decided to share this little tid-bit of knowledge to help prevent or lower the chances of tumblr bullying.

  1. When you get an anonymous ask, highlight the link “block”.
  2. Right click, then go to “View Selection Source”.
  3. A pop-up will appear, highlight the numbers after “ip:”. Usually the numbers look like xxx.xx.xxx or something like that.
  4. Copy the number.
  5. Go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip-lookup
  6. Paste the number in the box that says “Lookup IP Address”
  7. Send dildos, porn and other embarrassing stuff to the address of your hater.
  8. Please reblog to spread the word and help stop online bullying =) (Unless you yourself are a bully then BOO YOU WHORE!)
  9. VOILA. Problem trolls?
