Periods for Pence



Let's talk about the elephant in the womb. Yesterday afternoon, I stood on the Statehouse lawn, one of thousands of voices chanting, "My body, my choice! My body, my choice! My body, my choice!" I was shoulder-to-shoulder with the daughters, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, cousins, brothers, sons, fathers, and grandfathers of Indiana. And, together, we protested HEA 1337 and rallied for women's rights. 

Because women should not have to fight for control over their own bodies with politicians. Because a woman should be able to discuss every option with her doctor. Because a mother should be able to choose what is best for her child, her family, and herself. Because the state should not force parents to take care of a child with genetic defects and not bother to provide them with resources and funding. Because doctors should not be subject to wrongful death suits. Because a woman should not be persecuted if she miscarries. Because … because a lot of things. Viva la vulva. 































Here is coverage about yesterday's rally. And here. And also here. To learn more about HEA 1337, have a look at the digest on the Indiana General Assembly's website. I also recommend browsing NUVO's social justice articles. And please read this Washington Post editorial, written by an Indianapolis obstetrician, and this story about Dr. Willie Parker, who provides, under restrictive conditions, abortions in Mississippi. Oh. And be sure to check out the Periods for Pence Facebook page, too, and call the governor's office
