In the heat of the Texas anti-abortion legislation, Ohio slipped through the media’s fingers Thursday when they passed a new bill that will effectively outlaw abortion as well as deny rape victims abortion rights.
The new budget bill recently passed in Ohio added…
Signal boost! There is information on how to contact Ohio Governor Kasich and protest this bill at the link.

Going on a brief hiatus
Hi followers. Life update: I am moving to a new apartment this weekend and am pretty much not going to be blogging until the middle of next week, or maybe until the week after. We’ve got a lot to do and then will have to get internet set up at the new place, so I’m going to be out of the loop until we’ve got everything squared away. The queue is unfortunately empty but I’ll be back in ~10 days max. I’m assuming the internet will survive without me until then. If you’re having an abortion/pregnancy/whatever crisis and want advice or help, try bebinn.tumblr.com, provoice.tumblr.com, antiprolife.tumblr.com, or choosechoice.tumblr.com.
That’s it. Peace out y’all.
Reblogging my main blog just to annoy everyone..

Sen. Wendy Davis is currently undergoing a 13-hour filibuster to block an omnibus abortion bill in Texas. The bill would ban abortions at 20 weeks, ban telemedicine abortions, and shut down all but 5 abortion providers.
She has been sharing testimonies from Texans that Congress refused to hear two days ago, but with many hours to go, she is running out. Please help Sen. Davis block this bill and share your story.
SIGNAL. BOOST. Followers, PLEASE CONTRIBUTE if you can!
Anyone who doesn’t follow Pro-Choice Teddy Bear: please, please contribute. Thank you in advance, fellow pro-choice warriors.

*chest bump* I’m glad you like my blogs!! I salute you, fellow pro-choice warrior!
Anonymous said: No, no, it's none of that it's just that I don't go on sites I'm not familiar with. But my submission is: ' "I support abortion only in cases of rape, incest and life of the mother." Oh, aren't you merciful? '
Ooh, good one. I’ll make a bear for it, unless someone beats me to the punch… Thanks for the idea, anon! I appreciate it. :D
Anonymous said: Oh, what I meant was can I put it in the ask box?
Sure, I guess… What are you trying to submit exactly? Do you need help with the submit page? If you want to submit anonymously, all you need to do is log out of Tumblr before visiting my submit page.
Anonymous said: I have an idea but I'm not sure how to submit. Is it okay if I leave it here..?
I’m not sure I understand the question. To submit something, you need to go to my submit page. Do you have questions on creating a meme? The Quickmeme page is here. If you want to submit a meme that you make through Quickmeme you need to take a screenshot of it and upload the screenshot to my submit box because Quickmeme is annoying like that. I hope that helps…

Cissexism AND misogyny! I’m winning at asshole bingo, keep talking.
spread the word
hold Disney accountable
original article for reading and forwarding is here
EDIT: we’ve been trying to get Disney to respond by continually commenting on their facebook walls (as they continually delete them). Feel free to join in, please help! First link is to the twitter hashtag, second is to their main facebook, and here is the link to DisneyCollegeProgram.
if it upsets you to learn that official Disney counselors told a girl that her sexual assault was her own fault/gave her no resources to help her/encouraged her to FLIRT with her rapist in order to solve the problem, please drop them a line on one of their pages, in a message, et cetera. They are deleting from their main page pretty quickly ATM.
Hey followers, I know this is wildly off-topic, but this is A BIG DEAL. A female intern at Disney was raped by one of her coworkers; Disney staff blamed her for being assaulted and refused to help her or discipline the rapist in any way. We have been staging a Facebook campaign to raise awareness and demand a response from Disney by commenting on their main page and on their Disney College Program page demanding that they respond to the article and change their sexual assault policy; Disney has responded by deleting all comments referencing the incident and blocking activists from their pages. Please, please, followers, join in. Tweet Disney, comment on their Facebook page, email them, call them, write them letters, emails, anything. They need to see that we are not going away until they acknowledge this and take steps to make it right. The Facebook and Twitter hashtag is #DisneyRape. Let’s take a stand and let Disney know what we think of their victim-blaming and misogyny. Enough is enough.
(Also fun fact — along with the comments from activists referencing the XOJane article, Disney has been deleting every comment detailing the ways in which The Lone Ranger is racist. Just in case you needed another reason to be angry with them.)
My apologies to people who follow this blog and Pro-Choice Teddy Bear! I’m not trying to spam your dash. I want to cast as wide a net as possible because this is bullshit.
