This is what I am saying, you do not have the right to kill a human whether it is your life or a life of another person.

No, but you also can’t force a person to donate their body.

If you died and either hadn’t chosen or expressly forbidden that your organs be donated they couldn’t use them. They could not use your body to save the life of another person. Even if you were dead and they were no use to you.

Even if you were a perfect match for a person.

Even if that person was a child.

They couldn’t force you to save their life.

Why don’t I get the same rights over my body?

I’ve seen people reply to this that the woman’s choice was to have unprotected sex, knowing that it could make her pregnant. That she could have used any number of contraceptives before, during, or after that choice to ensure she wouldn’t be pregnant. How would you respond to this? It has me stumped…

Contraceptives fail, despite some people’s best efforts. A woman recently had a child while she has an IUD implanted. Condoms break. Even a vasectomy can be ineffective.

Life happens.

Al Franken

Al Franken is resigning today.

He should resign.

Al Franken is my senator. I’ve voted for him, I’ve met him, given money to him, and I’ve looked up to him.

But, he should resign.

I’m incredibly sad that this person I counted on and looked up to and who represents me caused all this harm to people and acted in such repugnant way.

It’s okay that we feel sad about losing role models and people in the public sphere that we love. There are icons falling all around us and it’s hard and it’s upsetting to come to terms with what they’ve done and how they’ve hurt people.

We can feel sad and still know it has to happen. Know that justice is being done. Feel comfort, alongside the hurt, that we’re creating a society safer for us all.

Enrollment for 2018 Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) starts on November 1 and ends on December 15. The current administration has cut the funds to announce when people can enroll. Please reblog and #Resist

they have also scheduled some 12-hour “maintenance sessions” to occur on sundays during the enrollment period so be aware of those as well.

Also there’s one scheduled for the first night so be aware of that.

They’re basically doing everything in their power to make it as difficult as possible so young and healthy people don’t bother signing up in an effort to kill the program that way. Please don’t let that happen spread this around and sign up.

I’m reblogging this every single Fucking time I see it

SIGNAL BOOST

these people have had all fucking year to do maintenance and they decide to do it several times precisely during the enrollment period. un-fucking-believable. as someone who works in IT (programmer), this is the biggest load of shit in the history of ever. don’t be fooled.

*fascist voice* you have the freedom to protest, which is why you shouldn’t protest and deserve to be murdered if you disrupt traffic
