Republicans in states across the country are refusing to accept the free federal money that could expand health care access to some of their neediest residents by expanding Medicaid, and that battle is heating up in Louisiana.

A state choosing not to expand a state medical program thereby allowing them to spend money where it is actually needed. Really that’s a bad thing? Making sure a state is within budget. Sorry they’re not California they realize they don’t have infinite money at least

Yeah, those 242,000 people don’t need health insurance. Balancing the budget that the citizenry had nearly no part in crafting is much more important than the lives and health of 242,000 people.

The Pregnancy Crisis Center of Wichita, Kansas lies about the risks of abortion. Abortion is not shown to affect infertility unless there are complications, of which there is a 0.05% chance of needing hospitalization.

Abortion also has no correlation with mental health risks unless the patient is already at risk due to other factors in their life, like trauma, abuse and coercion, infertility, existing mental illness, and a lack of social support caused by the stigma of abortion.

Finally, PCC neglects to inform you that tubal, or ectopic pregnancies, are treated with a medication abortion using methotrexate, a slightly different method than regular medication abortions.

Holy shit, they are literally telling people that the only solution to ectopic pregnancy that doesn’t result in maternal and fetal death doesn’t work. I’m sorry but that should be illegal. Manslaughter by negligence at least.

Yup. That’s super irresponsible and possibly deadly.

A Person is a Person No Matter How Small

A person is a person no matter how small.

Doctor Seuss was pro-choice and his widow sues anti-choicers who use his work for their own purposes and donates to Planned Parenthood.

Shhh….

I don’t think they’re buying this book, or even borrowing it from the library to read. Horton Hears a Who is obviously about the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The book is even dedicated to a friend Suess made in Japan. There is literally nothing in this story remotely about reproduction or abortion or pregnancy in the least.

I was taught that the only 100% way to avoid pregnancy is to be abstinent. Sex my friend, is a choice. 
If a woman doesn’t want to be pregnant. Then by golly, she can choose not to get pregnant. Or she can wait nine months as oppose to killing a human being. 

Hello friend! My name’s Kendra, and I’m going to tell you a thing:
Did you know that married couples like to have sex? Did you know that not all married couples want children? Does that mean they have to abstain from sex?
(Hint: the answer is no!)
No one should be forced to carry a pregnancy they don’t want or that is harmful to their health.
If you think pregnancy is just “waiting nine months,” then you might want to speak to someone who has been pregnant. I can assure you that pregnancy is much, much more than simply “waiting.”
I hope this clears some things up for you! If you have any questions, feel free to visit my Ask and I’d be happy to answer them!

Also please keep in mind that you are literally killing your own child that was inside of you that you created but you decided that a “pregnancy” is too much to handle. You’re calling a child a “pregnancy” like it is a condition. Pro-life is the only decision that should be made.

"Pregnancy"

"

I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…

When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.

Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.

Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.

…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.

So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.

"

Neil DeGrasse Tyson in response to a question posed by Lawrence Summers, former Treasury Security and Harvard University President

"What’s up with chicks and science?"

Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.

(via magnius159)

I like how he talks about his success in astrophysics as survival, that some people survive the social pressures to conform and some don’t. Because a lot of privileged people would say, “If Neil DeGrasse Tyson could become a scientist, why can’t any Black kid?” And then they’ll blame the kid for not succeeding. Well, why can some people survive cancer and some can’t? It’s not anything deficient within the individual that keeps them from succeeding. It’s everyone, especially important people, telling them they can’t so often that they start to believe it.

Anonymous asked: wtf that's so messed up. Sew them man

choosechoice:

Why would I sue over that? 

You don’t have to sue, but you should ask whoever is in charge of the dining hall to order kosher food from whatever supplier they use, and to label it as kosher in the dining hall. The president of the animal rights club at my alma mater was able to get the dining hall to serve cage-free eggs. It didn’t seem to be too difficult.

Students Fed Up With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul — Menu-Item Snapshots Spell Out Why

Wow that is depressing. 

okay but is that michelle’s fault for pushing for healtheir lunches or is it school districts’ faults for cutting corner by cutting calories but not making lunch any healthier?

let’s look into it.

^^^Agreed. She is trying. School boards aren’t.

If Republicans had their way, those trays would be empty.

BDSM was a lot less weird when I was young

There is so much wrong with this bill. Like every single thing.

Health professionals, including the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American College of Gynecologists and Obstetricians, say that laws like this will scare pregnant people away from seeking prenatal care, for fear of being arrested. The risks of drug use during pregnancy, according to one member of the ACOG, are wildly overstated and more easily treated than the bill implies.

In addition, it can be difficult to pinpoint the cause of a newborn’s symptoms, and in over half of Tennessee babies born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, their mothers had legal prescriptions for the medication.

Then there is the concern that pregnant drug users might be coerced into getting abortions to avoid prosecution.

I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.
that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.



#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

Whether healthcare is paid for through taxes or private insurance premiums, your money is going to paying for someone else’s healthcare. That’s how cost sharing works. Anyone who doesn’t like paying for someone else’s healthcare should opt out of insurance altogether and pay for everything out of pocket. But their beef isn’t so much with how healthcare is paid for or who pays, but with who benefits.
