“Abortion Barbie” Posters Greet Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Davis In Los Angeles

"Abortion Barbie" Posters Greet Texas Gubernatorial Candidate Wendy Davis In Los Angeles

Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis flew to Los Angeles this week for a campaign fundraiser and was welcomed with warm temperatures, the promise of In-N-Out and, oh yeah, these “Abortion Barbie” posters. Created by the “conservative street artist” Sabo and paid for by Midland, Texas, woman Kathryn Stuard, the posters feature a pregnant Barbie’s body with Davis’s head, the fetus’s body visible (yeah, I said fetus, not baby) in the doll’s stomach. “Abortion Barbie” comes with her own accessories, namely a pair of scissors for, uh, the aborting, I guess. ”It hits people with the truth,” said Stuard, 53, apparently not realizing that abortions are not and have never been performed with scissors. “The artist is very edgy … I do support (Greg) Abbott [Davis's opponent] but the campaign had nothing to do with these (posters).” Keep reading »

Anti-abortion activists have many approaches to stopping abortion. One is to spread lies about the science around reproductive health. Another is to pressure women to feel guilty for terminating pregnancies, regardless of their reason. Another is to restrict abortion access through the courts. And yet another is to target the employees and property of abortion clinics, which includes harassment and violence towards abortion providers and damage to their buildings.

“Leave The Abortion Industry Day” on April 8 is one such effort towards that goal — and thankfully, an effort not involving violence. It’s a project of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director turned anti-abortion activist; “abortion industry” is a term used by anti-abortion folks to describe people who work in the women’s health field in regards to abortion.

stop abortion

I’m warning you, it’s hard not to read this story without getting enraged.

Last week, a 29-year-old kindergarten teacher from New York went down to Germantown, Pennsylvania Maryland, to terminate her pregnancy at 33-weeks. She was married and fully enthusiastic about having a baby, according to the Washington Post, which says she had a Pinterest board filled with baby items and a baby registry. But tragically, earlier this month, the woman instead found herself getting a late-term abortion at Germantown’s Women’s Reproductive Center clinic.

The abortion was a multi-day procedure, requiring her to stay in a hotel nearby. At some point during the procedure, she was taken to the ER of a local hospital, where she died the next day. Her death is currently under investigation by the state of Maryland.

This story is sad enough as it is. But the absolutely enraging part is that anti-abortion protesters have now been protesting outside the Germantown clinic revealing the woman’s name, where she worked, showing her photos, and sharing confidential details about her medical procedures which were revealed by “anonymous sources.”

That’s so fucked up. Keep reading »

Brad Fischetti From LFO Spends All His Free Time At Abortion Clinics

You guys. This is crazy. You remember LFO, right? Of course you do. They’re the ones who like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch, remember? Yeah, those guys. Well, ever since their star began to fade in 2001, it doesn’t look like they’ve been up to too much. Rich Cronin, the cute blonde one on the far left, sadly passed away in 2010. Devin, the guy who Jennifer Love Hewitt is pressing up against, is a barber now, I believe. So where does that leave Brad, the striking young man in the middle?

Oh, you know, he just hangs out at an abortion clinic, trying to convince women who go in to “choose life.” Then he talks about it on Twitter. Read more…

On Tuesday, nearly 1000 people gathered in Oklahoma City to protest the state’s fetal personhood amendment, which seeks to legally declare that life begins at conception and would thus render abortion illegal. Among the protestors was this awesome lady, Senator Judy Eason McIntyre, whose [UPDATE] who borrowed this bawdy sign from a fellow protestor. It basically sums up my feelings on the anti-choice/anti-women legislation currently being debated around the country. [Tulsa World]
