    This came across my Facebook feed. Sorry for the length. On second thought, no, I’m not. All of it needs to be here:

    “So I’m gonna share the most personal story I have, one most people have never heard me tell because it’s only been a year since it happened. But I can’t stay silent anymore. I care way too much about what’s going on in our country to keep it to myself anymore.

    I, like most women I know, have relied on Planned Parenthood for my life, health, and sanity. They are not only where I went to get an IUD (so that I don’t have to GET an abortion should a condom break one day), where I have gone multiple times to get my pink parts checked out (so I don’t die of fun stuff like cervical cancer), and where I’ve gone to get tested for STD’s multiple times (so I don’t pass that shit onto a nice boy I like). These reasons should be enough. But here’s one more reason.

    Planned Parenthood is where I went after I got violently raped by my (ex)boyfriend when I tried to break up with his wife-beating ass. (Btw, his method worked! I had to figure out a better exit strategy weeks later. Rape wins again!).

    So Why Planned Parenthood and not the cops you might ask? Actually, I went to both. The cops were no help. He walks a free man to this day. But the reason I went to Planned Parenthood is because I wanted to make sure my vagina wasn’t, like, broken or some shit. And because I needed them to run some tests to make sure he didn’t give me an STD in the process. Above everything, though, I went to them because I needed people who understood women in crisis. Who knew how to support us and talk to us in a way that’s not condescending or shaming.
    Planned Parenthood doesn’t just deal with vaginas, y’all, they deal with women’s heart and souls in those rooms. It’ s a sacred space and the government has no business being in there with us. Nor does anyone with a fucking gun. But now every women in this country who goes into those rooms, whether it be to get a simple pap smear or something much more intense, will be on edge (as if she needed any more shit to worry about) and afraid of getting fucking shot by another white christian terrorist. Btw, I am not nearly as afraid of ISIS as I am of angry white american men with guns.

    So why the hell should you care about any of this? Well, if you’re a woman, fucking DUH. But if you’re a man who loves the women in your life, then fucking duh too. Planned parenthood is what keeps men from getting STD’s from us women. And keeps men form having babies they don’t actually want (yet). And it keeps the women they love from dying of cancer and shit because PP provides cheap health care for people like me who have bull-donkey insurance (or none at all).
    I’ve never had to get an abortion myself, but only because my birth control has never failed me. But I will support PP and my right to have one should I ever decide to, til the day I die. And you should too. Because women will just go back to using coat hangers if you change the laws and shut these places down. Because we will not be forced to do what we know we can’t handle. Because kids deserve to be born into families that WANT them and can afford to provide for them. And because women are not fucking domesticated cows or cum dumpsters or baby factories. We are human beings with a right to make choices and mistakes, just like men.

    If you are a man who has stayed quiet on the sidelines and watched women fight this battle alone, fucking donate to PP and, for god’s sake, speak up already! We need you! Men listen to other men. It’s sad but true. Men don’t always trust our words or our perspective. But they’ll listen to YOU. And this is just as much your issue as it is ours if you give a shit about the women you love and if you aren’t interested in crabs or herpies or having it burn when you peepee cuz you got an STD from a lady friend.

    Since 1977, there have been 8 murders, 17 attempted murders, 42 bombings, 186 arsons, and thousands of incidents of criminal activity at our abortion clinics. And yet they have survived somehow. Why? Because we NEED them. I don’t care if you agree with abortion or not. That’s one service they do of many. Planned Parenthood is the only place ALL women have access to that gives a fuck about us and our health. You take this from us and we have nothing. Nowhere to go. Women are half the population. We’re your mothers, your daughters, your girlfriends, your spouses, your friends, your bosses, your coworkers, your fellow human beings. Give a shit about us and take a stand. We cannot protect our rights alone anymore. We’re fucking losing here. Help us.”
    *if you are poised to write a clever “counterpoint,” save your energy. we’re getting enough of that from clowns at the podium, and anyone who tries to justify a murderous rampage in the name of “savin’ babies!” has no place on my list of friends.

  5. Alleged Planned Parenthood Shooter Robert Lewis Dear’s History of Trouble with the Law

    Robert Lewis Dear, the alleged shooter behind Friday night’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood, had a history of trouble in South Carolina, police say.

    Who was Robert Lewis Dear, the 57-year-old suspect in yesterday’s Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs, which claimed the lives of one University of Colorado—Colorado Springs police officer and two civilians?

    According to police records supplied to The Daily Beast by Lieutenant Shane Roberts, the Public Information Officer for the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office in South Carolina, Dear was a longtime resident of the county with a lengthy history of incident reports.

    Roberts could not confirm that Dear still lived in the county, and was unable to provide the outcome of individual incidents, but he did confirm that the alleged gunman has been arrested twice before, once in June 2002 for “peeping tom” charges, and once in January 2003 for animal cruelty. As The Daily Beast reported, Dear was found not guilty on the animal cruelty charge, and the peeping tom charges were dismissed.

    Colleton County’s police records reveal Dear’s history of disputes with relatives and neighbors. In June 1997, police responded to a domestic violence call from Dear’s then-wife, Pam, who told police, per the incident report, that he “took her keys from her and locked her out of their residence.”

    “The victim then walked around the residence to gain entry through a window,” the report reads. “The victim entered the residence and the suspect then hit her and pushed her out the window.”

      RIP, Officer Swasey. I hope your family is compensated for the fact that you were the victim of a domestic terrorist.

  7. Flashback: In 2009 Janet Napolitano warned rightwing radicalization is the biggest threat for domestic terrorism.

    • Kathleen says:

      Yes and remember the outcry from repugnantcans and her “apology”. Sadly, she was right and those of us who have been paying attention knew it.
