phyleann:

On Monday VOX held a table-ing with Purdue College Democrats to support the 1-in-3 campaign which aims to rid stigma and shame when it comes to abortion, utilizing the power of story telling in hopes to change the way we talk about abortion. I got the artsy/cute and personal story pictures from Tumblr and I wish their was a way to cite them or something because I feel bad. But hopefully no one minds :x anyway we handed out most of the tiny booklets that contain a few select stories, tons of buttons and stickers, and even had 30 signatures of people pledging to speak out against shaming women! I was able to engage in open and honest conversation with strangers, and only had one scary old lady tell me that when women have abortions that they are killing god s children, so that’s neat.

Cats for reproductive justice!

Seriously, Indiana state House?

standupfordownthere:

The Indiana state House just passed a bill that forces health clinics that provide the abortion pill (RU 486) to have full surgical facilities. 

Why would somebody need a surgical facility to provide a pill?

Planned Parenthood of Indiana Clinics to Close on Wednesday

Many Planned Parenthood of Indiana clinics have made the tough decision to close for one day on Wednesday, June 22nd.

"A measure state lawmakers approved in April and Gov. Mitch Daniels signed into law in May would block Medicaid funds and other government dollars from going to Planned Parenthood because the organization offers abortions at some of its clinics.

Even though abortions are not covered under Medicaid, the legislators who supported the measure said they do not want to risk taxpayer dollars being entangled with the service.

"The state’s request is putting an undue burden on women by causing further delays. Our 9,300 Medicaid patients, including those who had appointments Tuesday, are going to see their care disrupted," Cockrum said."


The closings will ensure that the clinics have enough funds to remain in operation until the end of this month, when Judge Tonya Walton Pratt is expected to determine a ruling as to whether this new law violates federal law.

"Meanwhile, another step the organization is taking to reduce costs is laying off two sexually transmitted disease prevention specialists at its Muncie office, until further notice.

The money it expects to lose is $1.3 million in Medicaid dollars, plus another $150,000 for sexually transmitted disease prevention. That adds up to a third of its total budget.”
