What You Can Do to Fight Anti-Abortion Legislation

Lately, the news has been inundated by the anti-abortion laws that are being passed in several states across the United States. Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi and Ohio all passed “heartbeat bills” that make abortions after six to eight weeks a crime.

Modern Activism on Social Media

Hundreds of thousands of people have seen me topless. This is shocking and true, and perhaps more shockingly, I am proud of this. After a Trump protest my friends and I went to in November, we were cold and went inside a random storefront, which happened to be the gift shop for the Museum of Sex.

IUDs May Be the Most Reliable Form of Contraception to Outlast Trump’s Presidency

Ever since Trump vowed to appoint pro-life Supreme Court Justices to overturn Roe v. Wade in a presidential debate, I have been wondering what a Trump presidency would mean for women’s reproductive healthcare. The GOP has historically been against abortion and has recently been open about defunding Planned Parenthood because of this.
