And a more general note about trigger warnings

thebicker:

There’s a whole discourse out there about “life doesn’t have trigger warnings blah blah it’s tantamount to censorship” and honestly that sentiment is so ridiculous it’s barely worth acknowledging. I want my blog to be readable for everyone. It takes me two seconds to tag things.

I use tags and trigger warnings, but I don’t always think of everything / remember to tag the rights things / know the right tags to use. Please, please feel free to reply to posts or send me an Ask or Fanmail if you’d like me to add a tag to something.

Lately my inbox has been wonky and messages have been appearing/disappearing or people have been asking “Why didn’t you respond to my message???” when I never got a message from them. In that case, plz feel free to tweet me @thebicker and/or resend.

I agree and try to do the same. My ask box is always open if you need to correct me!

A federal judge has struck down North Dakota’s stringent abortion law.

cspanjunkie:

The law, which would have banned abortions after six weeks, was considered one of the harshest abortion limits in the country. District Judge Daniel Hovland ruled that the law was unconstitutional based on the precedent and framework set by decisions like Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

woohoo!

This is the Memorial to the Missing and contains over 50,000,000 pennies to represent the lives of each American child abandoned to abortion by a society and a culture that has embraced their destruction. We must prevent the need to add to this memorial. Take a stand. Get involved.
 ”How we treat the least of us defines us.”

"should I use this $500k to help struggling parents and pregnant people or should I put it in a glass box"

How much money have you  wasted that could’ve gone to help struggling parents and pregnant women is the better question to ask.

Yeah if i was a struggling parent and I saw that “monument”, you know what I’d do? Break into that fucker and use the money to help my kid get a better life.
Clearly those “charitable” folks aren’t using it on kids that have actually been born.

A few facts that the OP neglected to mention.
a)  The glass box is on the grounds of the Mississippi Baptist Convention building—right across from the Mississippi state capitol. It was placed there deliberately to remind legislators that the Baptist Church—which is very powerful in the South—is staunchly anti-abortion.
b) This wasn’t created by regular people, charitable or otherwise. It was a deliberate and high-profile project of the Convention. Using the services of a construction company that worked free of charge, they erected the glass box in 2006, putting 47 MILLION pennies in it on the day that it opened, thus creating the illusion that many, many people had contributed.
c) Once $500K was collected—back in 2008, by the way, and the photo dates back to 2007—the money was then spent by the Convention, which invested it on a permanent endowment fund for anti-abortion causes, such as assisting with the operations of crisis pregnancy centers.
d) Almost all crisis pregnancy centers are church-sponsored and evangelical in nature.
e) Most crisis pregnancy centers have ties to evangelical maternity homes, adoption lawyers, and private adoption agencies. Any crisis that a woman coming to such a center might be facing would be irrelevant; for the purposes of the center and its affiliates, it is paramount that she have the baby. Babies, especially healthy white babies, are in high demand by would-be adoptive parents, and there is a very small supply.  There are horror stories about women who have been forced continue pregnancies and who have been forced to relinquish, most to evangelical families. Evangelical churches support and encourage this kind of thing. They figure that this way, they win twice over: they save lives AND they get to control how the next generation thinks. 
f) So, to recap.The Baptist Church underwrites the memorial (at least the first 47 million). The funds eventually go back to the Baptist Church, which invests them in businesses that will help produce more goods—babies—for other evangelical businesses, such as adoption agencies and adoption lawyers, AND that will create more religious and political support in the future.
This is NOT a memorial created by heartbroken people, OP. It’s big business. 

Wow.  What the actual rusty fuck.

I actually preferred the idea that it was anti-choice propaganda instead of a business venture. Holy shit, that’s fucked.
