Access to birth control
Same sex marriage rights
Women having financial independence
Rights for disabled folks
Rights for the LGBTQ community
Five neanderthals on the court worshipping at the feet of dead men who thought slavery was OK and women were property fucking over well over half the country.
Every person that enabled this can get fucked, and there are a lot of you out there, from voters to legislators, to the media that covered the candidacy and Presidency of 45 as a ratings goldmine and abdicated their responsibility with every damn “both sides” article, corporations that donated to these monsters, and Democratic legislators who have sat on their hands and done NOTHING.
I’ve already contacted my federal reps, not that I think it will do any good – nothing else has gotten them to get their shit together, I don’t know why this will. At a state level, we’re hanging on by a thread.

I’ll be finding funds I can contribute to today at AbortionFunds – the site is back up this morning.

Become fucking ungovernable.
