Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—to-morrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… . And one fine morning—

NOT A JOKE: Photos from Personhood for Women

Also, check out National Advocates for Pregnant Women, org that stands up for the rights of women (often the ones with the least means) who have no way of  debunks bad science and challenges religious lunatics in courts. 

This is terrifying to me that a fetus has more rights than a fully-formed human female.  And BTW, Pro-Choice is NOT the same as Pro-Abortion.  It’s understanding that it’s none of your business to legislate what another person does with their own body.

And…today’s example of what personhood policies yield…PA mom who helped teen daughter have a medically safe abortion (pill) gets 18 months in jail & fined. Really.

President Obama, champion of journalists (rolls eyes)

OBAMA: “Here in the United States of America police should not be bullying or arresting journalists” trying to do their jobs

This statement rings so hollow to me. Especially when the Obama Administration is responsible for this —> Why Is President Obama Keeping a Journalist in Prison in Yemen?

If you believe for one second the President and his administration believe a word of that statement then please pass whatever it is you’re smoking!

This administration has pushed out independent voices; voices exposing the American government’s illegal practices, turning journalists and whistleblowers into enemies of the state. The fact President Obama had the nerve to even utter that statement show he’s not the man people thought he was when we elected him in 2008.
