I’m so tired of listening to people argue that, because I have a uterus, I’m not really a person. I’m just an incubator.
Abortion is healthcare, and anyone who wants or needs one should be able to get one.
So let’s pay for some fucking abortions.
For the next little while, everything in my ravelry and payhip shops is 50% off with the code ABORTION IS HEALTHCARE.
And I’ll be donating at least the next $1,000 I make to Lilith Fund (if enough of you are into this, we’ll do even more, but I know I can cover this much out of pocket if I need to).
And I said what I said intentionally. I explicitly and specifically want to pay for abortions. Not lawyers. Not education. Not lobbyists. Those things are all important, and yes I give money to them too.
But today? Today’s rage can only be handled by actually paying for the healthcare that people need to be able to live their lives as full members of society.
So I say again, let’s pay for some fucking abortions.
The code will work for at least the next few hours, we’ll see how long this rage lasts.
And wow do I hope it goes without saying, but do not show up in the comments and be an ass. I’m more than ready to block folks. I am hugely pro abortion, and if you’re not, I don’t want you here. See yourself out.
EDIT TO ADD: Holy smokes, folks are being LOVELY. Which really, was not what I was expecting. I’m so pleased. I’ve just sent $2,000 off to Lilith Fund (because great, we raised more, we can donate more, that’s amazing). Screenshots of the receipts below, which are not super pretty, but wow are they some of my favorite pictures on this site!
EDIT AGAIN TO ADD: Alright, thank you to everyone for being so lovely! I’m shutting the fundraiser down now, but you all absolutely helped make a shit day a tiny bit better. Thank you to everyone who bought something or told folks about this or just said nice things. It really makes a difference! Have a sweet old man kitty in a sunbeam as a thank you for your help!
