“But confusingly, misogynists are sometimes men who speak softly and eat vegan and say “a woman’s sexual freedom is an essential component to her liberation. So come here.” It’s a tricky world out there. And while I’d prefer a critical approach to gender from men I elect, read and even bed, in my experience, the so-called feminist men I’ve met deep down have not been less antagonistic or bigoted toward women. What I see over and over again is misogyny in sheep’s clothing, and at this point, I would rather see wolves as wolves.”—
The Morgentaler abortion clinic in Fredericton will close the end of July following a 20-year fight with the New Brunswick government over funding for the procedure.
The only abortion clinic in New Brunswick, Canada has just announced its closing today, which will be in July of this year. As a citizen of New Brunswick, and the city where it is located, I had always felt slightly comforted that if something were to happen and I ended up with an unwanted pregnancy that there was something near by, despite the extremely high cost of the procedure (ranging from $700-$850). But the founder of this clinic, Dr. Henry Morgentaler, had a policy in which no woman was to be turned down and there are recordings of pro-bono operations.
There has been a refusal of funding for the clinic, leaving citizens of New Brunswick, and neighbouring province of PEI without access to safe abortions.
In order to receive an abortion in the province after the clinic shuts down, it must be an absolute medical necessity with referral from two doctors (i.e. Family doctor and Gynecologist).
Today, in the year 2014, a giant step back away from female reproductive rights, and human rights in general, occurred and it is utterly disappointing.
Hey guys, this is a thing going on in my city right now and it’s disgusting. Please sign the petition to help women keep their rights
im miserable as fuck out of all the things that could possibly happen its the cat that disappears like does life just think “nah you’re doing better can’t let that be we’ll take what you love the most sorry”
