If you hate on sansa stark I will side eye the fuck out of you because you are probably some asshole who feasts on the lies of patriarchy that feminity=weakness and sansa stark is one of the strongest characters in the book and I wouldn’t be…

AND everyone sides w Arya for being the stronger, more active Stark girl, when in reality Arya would have never survived in King’s Landing post-ned nor would Sansa have survived on the King’s Road.

Emily Letts, a patient advocate at Cherry Hill Women’s Center, is the winner of the Abortion Stigma Busting Video contest! Emily let us into the operating room during her first-trimester abortion and told us what it was like before and after making her decision.

Sponsored by the Abortion Care Network and the 1 in 3 Campaign, the contest was launched to push back against the shame and silence that keeps patients from getting the care and support they need.

(Note: This is not a graphic video - the portion in the operating room focuses solely on her face and hands.)

Wow, this is truly incredible. Thank you, Emily to making and sharing this.

While I was pregnant with both of my children, I can’t even guess as to how many birthing videos I watched on youtube, and I can’t even begin to calculate just how big on an impact it was for my births to have been able to watch other woman do what I was getting ready to do. 

I remember being comforted that birth wasn’t all screaming and horror like it is on TV. I remember watching women giving birth as gracefully as making love and wanting that sort of experience now that I knew I could have that sort of experience; that I didn’t have to be scared. 

I’ve never heard of to seen any other abortion videos like this, but I would imagine that if I were to fall pregnant again at this time or at another time in my life when more children still isn’t practical, these videos would be a great comfort to me to know that I could do this with grace. 

Yes! I have a page of written stories, but wish there were more videos, too. Abortion is shrouded in fear and mystery, and it’s not fair to patients who don’t know what to expect.

[deleted by Bébinn because stories are beautiful and haters are boring]

I had just the same kind of beautiful, caring experience because of people like her.
I was relieved after.
I don’t feel guilty.
I own it. It’s mine.
It’s hers.

This is the most important thing.

One of my amazing coworkers! So proud of Emily and happy I can finally share this video.

When I say “boys are dumb” what I really mean is “boys have been raised in a patriarchal society that forces them into an incorrect and problematic view of masculinity that not only forces them to strip away valuable virtues from themselves, like patience and gentleness, but also forces them them to view and treat women in unhealthy ways that devalues women as people and makes them into objects purely for a man’s benefit”

but it’s a lot faster to say “boys are dumb”

Our anemic democracy will be replaced with a robust national police state. The elite will withdraw into heavily guarded gated communities where they will have access to security, goods, and services that cannot be afforded by the rest of us. Tens of millions of people, brutally controlled, will live in perpetual poverty.

Seventy-five years ago, Marian Anderson made history when she sang to crowd of 75,000 at the Lincoln Memorial. The Daughters of the American Revolution had denied her the use of Constitution Hall.

Last night I dreamt I ran into the person I am most angry with at a bar and I threw my beer at them and yelled fuck you at them and called them a liar. It felt so good and I’m glad I was able to release those emotions in the comfort of my own dream world.

I just remembered I met George R.R. Martin in a dream last night and he was so fat I couldn’t get too close.

Important People of Medicine: Virginia Apgar
If you’ve ever had, or been around a baby that was born in a hospital, Dr. Apgar’s name probably sounds familiar. An anesthesiologist and teratologist (one who studies abnormalities of physical development), Virginia Apgar is most well-known for the "Apgar score" - a rating given to infants at 1 and 5 minutes after birth, which is often a determining factor in whether or not the baby needs to remain in the hospital after birth.
Dr. Apgar was the first female doctor to receive professorship at Columbia University medical school, and her work in teratology during the rubella pandemic of 1964-65 led to her outspoken advocacy for universal vaccination against that disease. Though it’s often mild and annoying above all else in healthy people, when pregnant women contract rubella (also known as German measles), the rate of deformity and disability of their children skyrockets. It can even cause miscarriage.
Virginia Apgar also promoted universal Rh-testing among pregnant women. This test shows whether a woman has a different Rh blood type than her fetus, because if she does, she can develop antibodies that can cross the placenta and destroy fetal blood cells. This can cause fetal hydrops and high levels of neonatal mortality, but can be prevented by administering anti-RhD IgG injections to the mother during pregnancy, so that she does not develop a sensitivity (and subsequent antibodies) to her baby’s blood type.
Though Dr. Apgar never married or had children of her own, she saved the lives of countless babies and streamlined many medical considerations of neonatal care, resulting in more effective medical treatment. She studied and promoted the prevention of premature births and causes of fetal deformity. She worked for March of Dimes and taught thousands of students. Her influence in the obstetrics and neonatology fields cannot be overstated.

girl power!
