Infographic: Oregon is the only state without anti-choice laws

Remapping Debate has published a well-designed but absolutely terrifying graphic illustrating anti-choice legislation in all 50 states. Oregon is the only state that hasn’t passed any restrictions on Roe (supposedly allowed by the “undue burden” standard set by Planned Parenthood v. Casey). On the other end of the spectrum, Oklahoma has passed 22.

Abortion may not be my story. But it’s an important part of it.

It is the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. I’m in law school so you may think you’re about to be bombarded with legalese and a disconnected opinion. But I have a different and important perspective—a personal one.

When I was a teenager, I was raped. Gang raped. And as cliché and trite as it has become, I was ashamed and felt like it was my fault. So, despite my better judgment, the first thing I did was take a hot shower. I washed away all evidence ...

Friday Feminist Fuck You: Alabama anti-choice protestors

These Alabama “pro-life” protestors retraumatized a mother whose baby died in utero:

Pro-choice marchers recalled a particularly painful event last month when a woman whose baby had died en utero was coming to the clinic to have it removed. In an awful coincidence, that was the day, Watters said, when the pro-life demonstrators collected a children’s choir on the sidewalk to sing “Happy Birthday Dead Baby” to anyone driving in.

“Will had to physically restrain the father,” Watters said, nodding to one of the men marching in a pro-choice jacket. “And by the time she walked through them, she was an emotional wreck.”

Are you fucking serious? Alabama has some of the most strident laws restricting access to safe and legal abortion in the country. The ...

Saturday, January 22 marked the 38th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court case, Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. As this new Congress aims to steadily chip away at women’s legal rights to choice and to access all of their reproductive health options, it will take a community of concerned citizens to ensure that that women can safely make informed decisions about their bodies and their future.

To celebrate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Feministing joined the New York Abortion Access Fund (NYAAF) for a fundraiser and social bringing together our pro-choice friends and supporters from around the tri-state area. The event was hosted by awesome ladies: feminist activist Shelby Knox and ...
