Momentum is building for a beautiful gathering of abortion rights supporters in Germantown, MD (near Washington, DC) July 31-August 7!
This is a moment for sober reflection. How did we get to
this point and what do we do now?
HR3, the most extreme anti-abortion federal bill yet, just passed the House of Representatives and moves on to the Senate now. If it becomes law, health insurance that includes abortion… Read full post »
This is what I actually said, unedited:
You want to talk about morality? Look at what we represent right here. We represent caring about half of humanity!
We did in fact represent "abortion on demand and without apology" - it just makes more sense the way I actually said it.
Today, 100 years after the first International Women's Day,
women are STILL oppressed and subjugated, here in the US and around
If you have to ask how women are oppressed here, look at the work of the U.S. Congress and many state legislatures to dismantle access to abortion, birth control,… Read full post »
UPDATED FEBRUARY 21
From the “guerrilla activists” trying to take down Planned Parenthood to the state and federal legislators (from both parties) further restricting women’s access to abortion, 2011 has seen more assaults on women’s most fundamental rights yet – e… Read full post »
Julian Assange, editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, imprisoned in solitary
confinement in London, after willingly turning himself in last week
for questioning on sexual assault accusations in Sweden, deserves
the support of everyone concerned with human rights and

What's our plan to stop these immoral wars and the continuing
torture being carried out in our names? And why go into The New
York Times next week with an expensive advertisement?
On Thursday, the news broke that the Obama administration included a ban on abortion coverage that basically meets the notorious Stupak restrictions that had been the focus of attention months ago within the health care reform debates. This means that the compromise that was satisfactory enough to th… Read full post »

Procrastinator that I am, I waited until the last day of the
sustainer drive to write this... as you can see I have a hard
time with brevity anyway.
I donate $25 to World Can't Wait every month (automatically on my credit card). I do this because World Can't Wait is… Read full post »

Disclosure: the photojournalist talked about below is a friend of mine. Even still, though, this would be very disturbing to me and should disturb many others. What kind of a society are we becoming if we allow those who claim to be "ethical humanists" to do this to someone? This fact… Read full post »

Got your attention? How about something that REALLY matters for a change?
This week has been f--ing intense, for those paying attention. "Hope and Change" has come to mean straight-up pounding one of the poorest countries on the planet into the ground in the vain hope that it might preserve our… Read full post »
Check this out! This story was taped for the Fall 2009 World Can't Wait National Meeting and played during the panel on Abortion, Women's Lives, and the Democrat's Women-Killing Abortion Ban.

This story is way inspiring. When people say, "but I'm only one person, what can I do?" tell them to read what this bad-ass woman from World Can't Wait Houston did when her campus was invaded by a nasty anti-abortion group. A one woman protest turns into a three day campus-wide… Read full post »

The wa… Read full post »

I want the women of Afghanistan to be liberated. Do I have to
support the war?
Short answer: No. In fact, supporting the war only works against their liberation.
