    Well that’s a relief, still it is unfortunate that as women we are constantly having to defend our rights to govern our own autonomy and to retain the legal rights to make all medical decisions concerning our reproduction. Needless to say this is becoming a frustrating and tedious battle here in the US. I am [...]

    In my pre-teen and teenage years I hated myself and my body because I was not a skinny minnie in any shape or form. I have always been and always will be a larger woman. It took me a long time to start ignoring the social expectations of what I should look like as a [...]

    Rape kits are a form of abortion? Seriously? You’d think with the easy access to the Internet these days these insane politicians could just Google ‘what is ___’ before they open their mouths and say something so utterly ignorant.
