Thanks For Finally Paying Attention … Now Let’s Get to Work
Posted on May 10, 2019
Well well well, this week really put reproductive rights at the forefront of the conversation! We’re not really sure what about the Georgia bill particularly sparked fire (I mean, y’all there have been so many states pushing these 6-week bans this year, Kentucky and Mississippi signed their own “heartbeat” bills already, Iowa did it last year), we sort of assume because so many places film there. But to all our new radical abortion rights extremists we’d just like to say, get in, the water’s… ON FIRE!! The extremists are the NEW NORM! It’s time to get to work!
We’re happy to see a few in the film industry boycotting filming in Georgia! Marvel, Netflix, time to pull out too. We def understand people worried about the citizens of Georgia who might lose jobs because of these boycotts! But Georgia politicians are already costing their constituents millions of dollars in legal fees. And they’re hurting their constituents by not dealing with ACTUAL issues like maternal mortality. So… if they’re just gonna steal elections too, it’s time to hit politicians where it hurts, the bottom line.
So again, now that we’ve GOT YOUR ATTENTION here are a few things we’d love you to do. ONE: Abortion Providers get an ENORMOUS amount of hate on Mother’s Day! We sent Thank Bank postcards to over a hundred clinics! If you send a postcard now… it prob won’t get there in time for Mother’s Day… but it’s still worth it to send one! And FOR Mother’s Day just donate DIRECTLY to your local independent clinic! And donate to abortion funds like the Yellowhammer Fund!
Also, not to be shameless– but donate to US! We haven’t OFFICIALLY officially announced yet… but we’ve got a GREAT action on the road this year to combat anti-choicers! Watch this space!
AND AGAIN PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON’T LET UP EVEN THOUGH IT’S THE WEEKEND AND NEXT WEEK WILL BE A NEW WEEK. CUZ THE OTHER SIDE DEF WANTS YOU TO STOP TALKING ABOUT IT’S GROSS LAWS!
