About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Talk about swimming against the tide...
In the 'land of the free' women's reproductive freedoms and rights are more restrained in some states that Iran... That is how fucked up the far right cray cray that has taken hold of state governance and SCOTUS has become... IRAN people. Women in Iran have better access to reproductive health care choices than a female in one of the trigger states might be.

But Hey

Fear not my lovely sisters across the pond - it looks like they will not be satisfied until their patriarchal toxicity is spread far and wide bringing us women folk to heel.

The plan to overturn abortion rights in Europe

In total, $81.3 million worth of funding flowed from U.S. donors to help fund activism against abortion and other conservative causes between 2009 and 2018, according to a report compiled by the European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (EPF), a pro-abortion access network that connects members across European parliaments with a liberal stance on sexual and reproductive rights.

EPF Executive Director Neil Datta called the U.S. Supreme Court decision the result of a multidecade campaign by Christian conservatives to influence the American judicial system. Now the same is happening in Europe, said Datta.

“We're just at a much earlier stage in the process than the United States.”
