Secular Woman, through our project Abort Theocracy, has launched a campaign aimed at eliminating stigma and encouraging people to talk openly, shamelessly, about their reproductive health experiences. The campaign is, appropriately, called #ShameLESS. We are sharing your stories throughout the year with memes which you can share via social media, as well as publishing your stories on our sister site aborttheocracy.com.
We can hardly believe it, but Secular Woman is celebrating its two year anniversary today! Over the past two years we’ve been lucky enough to establish a wonderful and supportive member base who continually remind us of what secular women can accomplish and why Secular Woman was founded in the first place - so that secular women could have a dedicated voice.
Want to show the world that you proudly support reproductive rights? @Abort Theocracy, Secular Woman’s project focused on the intersection of religious power over women's bodily autonomy and sovereignty and dedicated to terminating that connection by opposing religious influence in government, now has stickers available depicting @AT’s stunning logo.
“What a smart way to remind us that legislators have a responsibility to expand access to care, not infringe upon our rights!” says Becca Thomas, director of @Abort Theocracy.
My friend confided in me that she might be pregnant. She was absolutely terrified. At first, I was surprised that she came to me with her serious issue. She wasn't my best friend; in fact, far from it. She often seemed to really dislike me, often calling me "boring" and like "an old lady" in front of our other friends. However, she said I was the only one she could trust not to tell anyone else about her possible pregnancy.
Thanks to the bravery of Texas senator Wendy Davis, the Texas democrats, and hundreds of Texans in attendance at the capitol yesterday, Senate Bill 5––a bill that would have legislated widespread restrictions to abortion access––is dead.
Have you seen these signs around your community? You might be forgiven for mistaking them as advertisements for women’s health centers – but you’d be wrong. These are advertisements for religious organizations called Crisis Pregnancy Centers and they are the happy recipients of your tax dollars.
