Snakes on a Plain

Our friends at Whole Woman’s got some bad news outta South Bend yesterday! It seems that one of the most effective tactics the enemies of  abortion access has is bureaucracy and the tale of Whole Woman’s Health Alliance trying to open in Indiana is a great example. WWHA applied to open a MEDICATION ABORTION clinic there over a year ago. You know, medication abortion, the thing you SHOULD be allowed to do at home but for some reason can’t because big old male politicians think they are “protecting women” by making five doctors watch them swallow a pill. That’s like… their kink.

In the frickin’ year since Whole Woman Health Alliance applied for the license they’ve faced nothing but red tape! Their license got denied in January for… look it’s so boring, we fall asleep explaining it… but basically the health department didn’t know how organizations work. ZZZZZZZZ no stay with us, please, please! ZZZZZZ We promise it’s almost over there’s just a difference between for profit and not-for-profit ZZZZZ OK FINE LET’S JUST SAY IT WAS SOME BULLSHIT AND MAYBE A HEALTH DEPARTMENT SHOULD UNDERSTAND HOW ORGANIZATIONS WORK.

So it took until AUGUST for a judge to hear WWHA’s appeal. The judge was like “Uhhh, no duh, they should be allowed to open,” because, you know, she was logical. But then the Health Department appealed that and a three-person panel yesterday said WWHA’s license should be denied. Meanwhile the cat hotel next door can just BE A FAKE CLINIC.

Our video explains the nonsense HERE

The point is, it’s just so blatant that the health department does not give a fuck about helping people. This is all some kinda political nonsense perpetrated by people who’ve never had any power suddenly being able to flex on a … healthcare clinic. And it’s PURE GASLIGHTING. A phrase we’re gonna use now to describe all this red tape.

 

We’re sending all our love to Amy Hagstrom-Miller and Whole Woman Health Alliance this week. Keep fighting! You’re like the iguana in this video, we know you’ll make it out on the other side!

All fired up and want somewhere to go?
