"The cold truth is that today there is not a single place on the planet where it is safe to be female. There is no place--on the street or in one's home, from Delhi to Congo to Ohio and everywhere else--where women and girls are not in danger of being raped. Where women and girls are not then blamed and devalued for being raped. Where women and girls are not told to "get over it" when they are raped. Where women are not reduced to breeders of children--shamed, coerced or forced into bearing children against their will. Where abortion and even birth control is not either illegal or seriously under attack. And let's be clear -- denying women abortion is like rape. It is the forcible control over women by a male-supremacist society."
ABORTION ON DEMAND & WITHOUT APOLOGY! Defeat the War on Women!
Abortion and birth control are fundamental rights. Forcing women to have children against their will is a form of enslavement. And if women - half of humanity - are not free, then no one is free.
Yet, forty years after the right to abortion was won, this right is hanging by a thread. Abortion is more stigmatized than ever before. Women are shamed and harassed for seeking abortions. Abortion is not available in nearly 90% of U.S. counties. Despite a "pro-choice" president, recent years have seen record numbers of anti-abortion restrictions across the country; 92 restrictions were passed in 2011 under Obama, shattering the previous record of 34 restrictions passed in 2005 under Bush. Doctors are stalked, terrorized and killed for providing abortions.
