Today is National Day of Appreciation For Abortion Providers. Here’s why you should say thank you to the doctors and nurses all over the world who perform sometimes life-saving medical procedures in the face of great opposition. More
Yesterday in Alabama the House passed a bill to ban most abortions in the state and make legal abortions difficult if not impossible. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Mary Sue McClurkin would require doctors to check for a fetal heartbeat before performing an abortion. If a fetal heartbeat is detected, the abortion would be illegal and a doctor performing one would be guilty of a felony. The bill now goes to the Alabama Senate. Standing up for some hardcore truth right before he dropped the mic (OK, so he didn’t do that, but he should have) a black representative from Montgomery named Alvin Holmes said the following, as reported by The NY Daily News: More

North Dakota State Representative Kathy Hawken, a pro-choice republican who represents Fargo, sees freedom of choice as a Republican value, and doesn’t believe that abortion rights and Republican ideals are in any way mutually exclusive. More
It’s obviously problematic to call Wendy Davis “Abortion Barbie”–it’s a demeaning, marginalizing, and gendered insult that’s not particularly creative. But how great would it be if Mattel actually made an Abortion Provider Barbie? More

e have no idea how to write an irreverent lede for a story like this, so let’s just get down to brass tacks: back in 2007, Milwaukee Bucks player JJ Redick reportedly entered into what media outlets are calling an “abortion contract” with onetime girlfriend Vanessa Lopez, model and former mistress to Shaquille O’Neal. Lopez, we deduce from the documents, had gotten pregnant and the newly-surfaced paperwork represents an agreement between she and Redick that she’d receive an abortion. And prizes! More
Another day, another Republican legislator saying something stupid and factually inaccurate about abortion. Today’s misinformed elected official is Missouri state Senate Majority Whip Brian Nieves, who forgot that women get late-term abortions for reasons other than being irresponsible floozies who couldn’t schedule their abortion around their nail appointments.

Don’t say “fuck Texas” and give up; support Texas’ women in the same way you would hope they would support you if your rights were the ones under attack. Don’t pretend this doesn’t exist; that’s what makes these types of bills go through almost unnoticed. It does exist, and it’s not going away unless we all collectively push against it. More
