This sign seems harmless enough. But it’s part of a scheme by an anti-choice crisis pregnancy center (CPC) to trick women seeking abortion services. Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) pose as legitimate reproductive health centers. They have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose.
Here’s what happening: this particular CPC sits right next to a legitimate abortion clinic (called EMW). That’s one way they cause confusion. Check out the “parking permit” gimmick. That’s how the CPC is luring women to the parking lot and getting them to come inside for a parking permit. Once a woman goes into a CPC, an anti-choice volunteer may try to get the woman to miss her appointment or use shame or scare tactics to pressure the woman not to access abortion.
So wrong.

You know what’s not fucking cool? Cultural appropriation.
You know what is fucking cool? Buying clothing inspired by a culture that is designed by the people of that culture.
Think Native styles are cool? Here, let introduce you to Patricia Michaels of Toas Pueblo. She is a Native woman who designs amazing clothes inspired by her heritage. She knows what from her culture is appropriate for mass-production and what is meant to be sacred, hand-made, or inherited. When you buy her clothes (available at her store Waterlily), or any Native person’s products, you’re giving your money directly to the cultures you claim to respect and admire. When you buy bullshit knockoffs from American Eagle, however, you’re being an asshole.
And seriously though look at her clothes they’re fucking amazing this woman is crazy-talented.

I don’t mean to brag, but yes I should.

Does the person at www.thisismyabortion.com/ know Abort73 is using their pictures for propaganda? This is funny though, because it’s so incredibly unconvincing. Like showing a picture of my dog’s old surgical scar and being like, “THIS IS WHY SPAYING IS CRUEL!” 

do they think that the blood is reh remnants of the ‘baby’ or do u think they realize thats from the uterine liining

DNA Evidence damning for George Zimmerman.
Check this out from a Zimmerman trial live blog at AL.com:

2 p.m.: Anthony Gorgone, a crime lab analyst, has testified that no DNA other than Trayvon Martin’s was found on the sweatshirt the teen was wearing when he was fatally shot on Feb. 26, 2013. Shooter George Zimmerman’s blood was not found on Martin’s clothes.
1:52 p.m.: Gorgone just testified that Zimmerman’s blood and tissue were also absent from under Martin’s fingernails. Zimmerman has previously said that Martin was covering his mouth and nose during the Feb. 26, 2013, struggle that left Martin dead.
1:45 p.m.: Gorgone testified that Martin’s DNA was not found on the handgun Zimmerman used to shoot the teen.
That detail could be significant to the defense of Zimmerman, who also claims that Martin tried to grab the gun from his holster before he pulled it and fired at the teen. 
Gorgone has been on the stand for about 45 minutes. He spent the majority of that time detailing the techniques by which he collects and tests DNA in criminal cases.

So no evidence at all of any fight — other than Zimmerman’s injuries, which of course, could’ve been self-inflicted. That makes this bit of evidence chilling:

George Zimmerman’s gun was pressed against Trayvon Martin’s hooded sweatshirt when the fatal shot was fired, firearms analyst testifies.

If there was no fight, then Zimmerman executed Trayvon Martin at point blank range. A brutal crime.

America’s Forgotten Black Cowboys

Like many people, Jim Austin - a college-educated, 45-year-old businessman - hadn’t heard about the black presence in the Old West.

The discovery inspired him and his wife Gloria to set up the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. It pays tribute to some of the forgotten black cowboys - men like Bill Pickett, a champion rodeo rider who invented bulldogging, a technique where he would jump from a horse on to a steer and take the animal down by biting on its lip.

“The kids who are learning history in our schools are not being told the truth about they way the West was,” says Austin.

“I bet you nine out of 10 people in this country think that cowboys were all white - as I did.”

In the real Old West, as opposed to the film depiction, black cowboys were a common sight.

“Black cowboys often had the job of breaking horses that hadn’t been ridden much,” says Mike Searles, a retired professor of history at Augusta State University. His students knew him as Cowboy Mike because he gave lectures dressed in spurs, chaps and a ten-gallon hat.

“Black cowboys were also chuck wagon cooks, and they were known for being songsters - helping the cattle stay calm,” he says.

Searles says his research, which included poring over interviews with ex-slaves in the 1930s, suggested black cowboys benefited from what he calls “range equality”.

“As a cowboy you had to have a degree of independence,” he says. “You could not have an overseer, they had to go on horseback and they may be gone for days.”

I am always here for cowboys.

this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word. 

“Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day.” (source)

For any Muslim followers.

^^^^^^^

HEY

NO

DON’T ACTUALLY USE THIS FOR THE SAKE OF WATER PERMEABILITY. IT’S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.

It’s only water vapor permeable, and it’s not at all water permeable when you apply multiple coats, a top coat, or a base coat.

You should use the Tuesday In Love water-permeable brands instead! They’re completely water permeable and come in a whole ton of colors!

Here’s a test that a sister did comparing the Inglot brand and the Tuesday In Love brand on a paper towel so you can see for yourself.

please please please spread this around, I would hate for a lot of sisters to have their prayers invalidated because of something like this.

confuesedmortal:

Can we just talk about how this kid puts every pro choice argument I’ve ever heard to shame?

LMAO NO SHE REALLY DOESN’T

Here’s why

1. A fetus is not sentient or aware and doesn’t care about whether it gets aborted

2. a fetus ISN’T a child

3. The latin root doesn’t actually matter

4. Abortions aren’t performed on 5 month fetuses ‘all the time’ because the only time they’re done after 20 weeks (4.5 months) is when the fetus is dead, actively dying, suffers severe abnormalities or will kill the pregnant person.

5.THE FETUSES RIGHTS DO NOTOVERRIGHT THE PREGNANT PERSONS RIGHTS. ANy right to life the fetus has DOES NOT override the pregnant persons right to bodily autonomy. Not now, not ever. So saying ‘is the mothers right to choose really more important than the rights the fetus was never given?’??? YES. THE PREGNANT PERSONS RIGHT TO DECIDE WHO MAY OR MAY NOT USE THEIR BODY IS ALWAYS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYONE ELSES RIGHTS, WANTS OR DESIRES.

6. Consent to sex is not consent to pregnancy, so a person consenting to the act of having sex does not mean they should be denied abortions.

7. 54% of the people getting abortions DID use contraception and did NOT have unprotected sex

8. Abortion IS a form or responsibility (Woops, another thing she’s conveniently glossed over)

9. Actually ‘hard case’ is more common. 1.75% areto IMMEDIATELY save the pregnant persons life, 3-5% are rape and incest, and 12% are for mental or physical health reasons BEFORE they become immediately life threatening. That’s a LOT more than what she claims and I have sources to back it up, she doesn’t.

10. Those health problems are actually myths and have been debunked NUMEROUS times by non-biased sources. There is a WHOLE POST I did debunking a lot more than what she claims and what she claims! (And the number is way, WAY lower than ‘17% of abortion recipients.)The Cancer institute says she’s wrong about the breast cancer thing.

11. The mood disorders thing is also bullshit, no major prospective studies support that. In fact studies found the fair opposite. More people feel relief than anything else!

12. Alcohol and drug abuse more common? Interesting how I can ONLY find this on pro life sites and very interesting how I see 2x more likely, 5x more likely, 4x more likely… the inconsistancy reeks of bullshit.

13. God is not something you should be bringing into the discussion as belief is varied and *gasp* many religious beliefs actually teach a pro choice stand point.

14. Dr. Suess was pro choice, Hortan Hears A Who was about the internment camps of the japanese and the vietnam war and his widow not only donates to planned parenthood but regularily SUE’S people who use the quote she did for pro life rallies.

So no. She hasn’t ‘put every pro choice argument to shame’. She’s proven she’s a child with NO concept of what abortion is or why people get them. She’s committed a copyright infringement, she’s regurgitated all the pro life rhetoric every pro choicer has heard a hundred times and she’s proven she can’t be bothered to actually research her topic correctly (Did she use lifenews or something? Because she failed to mention any sources for information and got an enormous number of things very, very wrong).

Sorry but this kid hasn’t got a fucking clue what they’re talking about.

Have you considered retaking your high school sex-ed class? Really, I think you’ll learn all sorts of new information, including (but not limited to) the whole idea of what happens when two humans do the sex.

Spoilers- pregnancy. Pregnancy happens.

You know what?

I will personally dedicate myself to ending abortion AND convert to the religion of your choice if you can explain—instead of just making pat statements—if you can explain how this means that consent to sex is consent to pregnancy.

And no, sex being a natural consequence of pregnancy doesn’t make it so. That’s not what consent is. You can’t get into a plane crash if you don’t get on a plane, but getting on a plane doesn’t mean you’ve agreed to be in a crash. 

Seriously. Can you explain how consent to sex means you’ve consented to pregnancy? Lay some logic on us. 

If you can’t, maybe you don’t actually have any logic. Maybe all you have is rhetoric that you’ve memorized. Maybe you’ve been relying on beliefs without reason for so long that you’ve stopped thinking about the fact that you’re not thinking about them.
