Okay guys, I’m going to get serious for a minute.
If you’re not in Ireland at the moment, you may not know about the situation regarding the laws on abortion. It is completely illegal, even in cases of rape, incest, fatal foetal abnormality, and other such things.
Women have died in this country because inability to have an abortion put strain on their health. A woman who wasn’t even Irish begged for an abortion because her child was about to die in the womb. The complications arising from her case resulted in her contracting septicaemia, organ failure, and tragically dying.
In 1992, the X Case took place, involving a 14-year-old girl, knowns only as x, who became pregnant after being raped. Instead of offering help to the girl, who because suicidal, they prevented her from travelling out of the country for an abortion.
Any Irish woman* who needs an abortion has to travel to the UK, which means if you don’t have the money, you’re out of luck. What does the Irish Government have to say about this?
Well, recently the UN confronted the Government about our abortion laws, pointing out that we were breaking Human Rights laws, and that the Government treated Irish women* like vessels.
Joan Burton, the Tánaiste, said that there will be no referendum on abortion in this Government’s lifetime. They’re literally saying that they don’t care enough to rectify Human Rights breaches.
I am NOT a vessel, and neither are you. Make your voice heard. Come to the March for Choice on the 27th of September in Dublin.
Never give up, never stay quiet.
This has only been up since last night and LADS, the NOTES. Keep spreading the word!
I am Canadian, and I’m sorry to say until I read this I didn’t know anything about what you women were going through.
This is completely disgusting, I can’t even believe what you’re going through.
And I wish I could come out there and march with you.
But I don’t have the money so I can’t.
But I’m going to keep reblogging this, and sharing it.
And I hope all my followers will too.
This is important people, no matter what gender you are or what country you’re in, everyone deserves their basic human rights, and we need to stand together until this becomes a reality.
So please spread the word for these women.
Hey, horror fans! The creepypasta wiki is currently running a fundraiser for the 12-year-old victim of yesterday’s stabbing in Waukesha, Wisconsin. You can read more about the incident here, but the gist of it is: this poor young girl was lured into the forest by two of her friends and stabbed nineteen times because they thought it would connect them with Slenderman. (Yes, that Slenderman.) News reports say that she crawled to safety and is currently in stable condition, but she still has a very long road of mental and physical recovery ahead of her. One of her stab wounds missed an essential artery by less than a centimeter.
Please spread this around. This young woman needs all the help we can provide, and every little bit counts.
From the Donation Update Page:
The family has asked people to donate something special for the girl. Those of you that would like to contribute in this special way can do the following:
The family asked for “homemade hearts of paper, fabric and felted wool that are purple in color and infused with prayers, love and light.”
"The hearts will blanket the walls of the girl’s room to remind her that the power of love is greater than all else," the release said.
Hearts can be sent to: Hearts for Healing, P.O. Box 407, Waukesha, WI, 53187-0407.
Helpful reminder: The donation is now at $4,323 out of $25,000
Reblogging so I don’t forget to do this. ;o; I can’t help monetarily right now, but I darn sure can make this poor girl a purple heart filled with love and healing thoughts.
