Here’s your monthly reminder that abortions are good, I am staunchly pro abortion, and if support me, I will absolutely use some of your money to pay for abortions.
This has been an absolutely shit year for abortion rights in the US. I’m ashamed of my country. I’m furious about what’s happened and scared of what’s to come. And the single best thing I can think to do with that shame and fury and fear is pay for abortions for people who need them and make sure everyone who follows me knows you can order abortion pills online.
I do that by sending a monthly donation to Women on Waves, the organization Aid Access asks folks to donate to to support their work.
Aid Access will help folks anywhere in the US (and in many other places around the world) order abortion pills online.
• Abortion pills are safe and effective (for people of any weight).
• You can order them right now, even if you’re not pregnant, to have on hand just in case (they keep for several years).
• Aid Access will help you pay for them if cost is an issue.
They do amazing work, and supporting them makes me feel a tiny bit less hopeless when things are bleak.
I’m able to do that because of my lovely patrons, who are amazingly gracious about this. Because yeah, yeah it is really damn weird to be a knitting designer and be shouting about abortion. In a better world, everyone would have access to all the medical care they need and I could show you pretty yarn instead.
But we don’t live in that world, we live in this one. And in this one, I’ll use whatever tiny voice I have to try and make things better.
P.S. A handful of folks get mad every time I post something like this. That’s a big part of why I do it! If you’re the sort of person who doesn’t support abortion access, I very much don’t want you following me or making my patterns. And I post about this frequently so you’ll know I’m not for you and you can see yourself out.
For everyone else (the vast vast majority of you you who feel the same way I do), thank you. You’re amazing. And if you want to support the work Aid Access does (or order abortion pills to have on hand), you can do that right here.
