Note: This is what I do now; I’m an activist full-time. I’m completely committed to changing the face of clinic access in this country. If you can, consider supporting my work so I can do more of it by clicking HERE and making a one-time or recurring (just click the box) contribution. All the funding goes to equipment, travel to other conferences/clinics/meetings with pro-choice legislators/training new escort programs and supplies. Thank you!
I can always count on Hal to join me in railing against misogyny and rampant misunderstanding of consent in our culture. So when George Will penned his rape apology, victim blaming column, I knew we’d be chatting about it on HSRP.
And we touched on the new ramp-up to “re-war” (?) in Iraq. It fits with the rich, white, male privilege in our political class who only value their own lives and autonomy. For the same reason they think they can commandeer my body at will, they think they have the right to seize land and resources and power overseas.
