Today is day three of ‘get the fucking word out’ week (otherwise known as United for Abortion Week of Action). Talk to people you know about Hyde. WTF, talk to people you don’t know about Hyde.
Perhaps when you are at the gym changing after a heavy work out you could lean in to the lady next to you and ask if she knows that for FORTY YEARS the Hyde Amendment has prohibited any federal funding to go towards abortions. That includes people on Medicaid, people working for the government, people living in DC, people in war torn countries getting aid from us. (But NO worries though because we have ok’d federal monies to go towards abstinence only programs that have been proven not to work. I mean, that just makes so much sense, right?!)
Yeah, we know we are hammering Hyde home this week, but it’s been FORTY FUCKING YEARS. Time to get off the shit pot.
Today we join with All Above All and share our ‘Bold Vision’ for a future without the Hyde Amendment. For a quick history on Hyde please check out our video (and even if you know the history check out our vid anyway because you know, we’re cool). Get online and share you thoughts using the hashtag #BeBoldEndHyde.
Today we introduce a new LPJL segment called, “Movie Moments” where we take a classic scene from a popular movie and reimagine it as a scene that comments on some aspect of the state of abortion rights.
We launched with a special holiday edition on Boing Boing to help us get more eyeballs on the video and the story behind it.
Look for more to come!
Behold, Lies Actually.
If extremists get their way by cutting the Title X program, nearly 4.6 million people will be left without care. Insane.
