Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault
Happy Women’s History month, y’all! Just a reminder in between everyone’s celebrations of dead, racist white ladies (sorry not sorry!) that we’ve still got a long way to go reproductive justice-wise.
Over 1 in 3 American Indian women will be raped in their lifetime. American Indian women are [...]
Hello hello! I’m super excited to be here doing the roundup for the first time for y’all!
On Tuesday, the lovely folks at National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW) published their study on “413 criminal and civil cases across 44 states involving the arrests, detentions and equivalent deprivations of [...]
I’d like to take a moment to direct your attention to this steaming pile of BS recently published by the New York Times. In it, Pam Belluck writes from Texas to let everyone know that Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) are gaining influence in our current climate of reproductive oppression (not her words). [...]
I’m sure that if you’re queer and/or into reproductive justice, live in Oklahoma (or anywhere else in the South or Midwest), and come from a conservative family, you know that coming home for the holidays can be less of a relaxing break with your family and more of an exercise of patience. As in, holding [...]
Hello hello! I’m getting really gross feelings about anti-abortion rhetoric (yes, again), so today I will be rage-bloggin about pro-life folks’ self perception as martyrs. Particularly white, Christian, cis, straight, etc. pro-life folks. The ones with all the blinding privilege.
The more time I spend keeping an eye on (read: internet stalking) anti-abortion groups, the [...]
Since the OK4RJ blog was revamped last October, I’ve been advocating for reproductive justice as a regularly contributing blog writer despite my inner/outer shy girl being way intimidated. I’ve also been active with the Student Organizer’s Collective (SOC) at the University of Oklahoma. Because of the support and encouragement of OK4RJ and SOC friends/organizers – [...]
Good news and bad news everyone. The good news is that today I get to rage/blog about my favorite topics: reproductive justice, the Christian right’s version of “religious freedom,” and (indirectly) knitting. The bad news is that Hobby Lobby filed a federal lawsuit against the “Obamacare” contraception mandate. As a knitter and [...]
Surprise! I’m here to rant about rhetoric surrounding domestic terrorism again! Unfortunately for everyone, this discussion is still relevant. Last week, a Georgia clinic was firebombed during office hours while patients were still inside the building. It’s only been a few months since Texas state senator and open supporter of Planned Parenthood [...]
Hi, hello, what’s up? I want to take this special time of the month when I get to blog at OK4RJ to talk about how we talk about periods (haaa, time of the month. Pun intended. I hate myself.). You know all of that stuff from second wavers, your mom, Your Aunt [...]
I don’t even know how to begin organizing my thoughts about attending the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Conference (CLPP) for the first time with OK4RJ. Like Jen, I also attended the Transfeminism and Reproductive Justice panel and am convinced that Katherine Cross is the human incarnation of grace, poise, and general [...]
