yes, it’s irritating that some old fucking rich white christian gags at the thought of vagina—but it’s a devastating moral, ethical and humanitarian CATASTROPHE that all those children of color that you are forcing to be born ARE GOING HUNGRY and WITHOUT ADEQUATE SHELTER as a result of your attacks on reproductive rights.
Just once, I need us to all be looking in the RIGHT FUCKING DIRECTION.
in response to your reblog of the story of GA senators walking out today in which you stated
“I would not want my tax money going towards paying for you to kill your baby.”
Let me clarify something for you. A baby is not an embyro developing inside a woman. An embryo is developing inside a woman. An embryo is not considered “fetus” until about 8 weeks. And fetus is not a baby until it is born. Living outside of it’s mothers womb.
Your tax dollars go towards killing all sorts of real, living breathing human beings. In the form of the death penalty for one example. (The wonderful state of GA just executed Troy Davis last summer.) its highly likely depending on your income level you contribute thousands of dollars to the murder of innocent civilians including CHILDREN in the form of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. How about your tax dollars that pay police officers that shoot and kill unarmed men and women? Where is your outrage, or your disgust with where that money is going?
Abortions are medically relevant procedures, and very few insurance plans cover them. Even in the event that a woman needs an abortion to save her own life. When the government passes bills like the ones expected to pass in GA, they are killing women. Not saving children. Yes, women have abortions to terminate unwanted pregnancies. But who are you to make that decision for someone? Or even to judge a woman who chooses to have one? To be completely honest with you, most insurance plans don’t cover that type of abortion anyways. But to make it illegal for insurance companies to cover them at all?! It’s shutting women off from our right to healthcare that could save our lives. You know, abortion in the case of dangerous life threatening pregnancies. The kind of abortions state insurance plans currently cover.
So if you’re ok with your tax dollars killing human beings, I don’t see why you’re so upset about tax dollars terminating pregnancies.
Eight female state senators in Georgia walked out of the Senate chambers on Wednesday to protest two bills that hinder access to abortion and contraceptives. All eight female democratic senators left the chambers together after two bills they oppose passed the Republican-led Senate. From Atlanta’s WXIA, the legislation:
Prohibits state employees from using state health benefits to pay for abortions
Does not allow employees of private religious institutions to demand that their insurance policies pay for contraceptives
“We stood together to protest what we feel is absolutely a war on women here in Georgia and we want to sound the alert to Georgians,” said Sen. Nan Orrick.
Republican state senator Joshua McKoon said of the legislation, “What I would say is the war that’s being waged is on a religious minority in this country that has strong beliefs that are protected by the First Amendment.”
The bills now heads to the House, where both are expected to pass.
Texas has decided to violate federal policies concerning the Women’s Health Program of Medicaid, and has lost $40 million of federal funding towards reproductive health care in the process. Way to go Texas! Now you’ve produced Rick Perry, W, and THIS abomination of legislation.

Hmm … basically has the same deleterious effects as passing a law depriving people of health care … +5 to Texas.
Oh my god.
There is a Tumblr awarding points to states in the “race to the stone age”.
This is absolutely beautiful. TUMBLR FIND OF THE DAY.
Damn. I feel bad for y’all (young women of Texas).

Hello World. The name's Reggie. & this is my Tumblr.
Enjoy or GTFO. Jk. Not Really. Vertigo (n) - a type of dizziness, where there is a feeling of motion when one is stationary
ie: sensation of free-fall.
The world is in perpetual motion even when we're standing still. Life is never at a standstill. These are some of the
accounts of my own personal "free-fall"--with
glimpses from other "free-falls" as well.
