      Jessica González-Rojas, Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, talks to Bill about the how the modern abortion debate connects to other social justice issues, and the new face of reproductive rights activists. “Reproductive justice really broadens the movement to incorporate things like socioeconomic status, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity,” says González-Rojas. “It’s really inclusive and much more holistic than looking to protect just the narrow, legal right to abortion.”

        Women of Ireland, First, let's look at some numbers: In 2011, 4149 women stated Irish addresses when obtaining an abortion in England and Wales. Between 1980 and 2011, at least 150,000 Irish women travelled from the Republic of Ireland to get an abortion abroad. The 8th Amendment was passed 29 long years ago. It has been 4 years since the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights told the Irish government to clarify its laws. A Sunday Business Post/Red C poll this year found that 85% of people support legislation for X. It has been 20 years since the Supreme Court passed X. It is time to come out as pro-choice. The time for waiting is over. Tell your sister. Tell your brother. Tell your mum. Tell your priest. Tell your co-workers. Tell your friends. Tell your husband. Tell your girlfriend. But most of all, tell your TDs. Tell them what this means to you. Tell them how scared you are that you could be the next woman to die in our hospitals. Tell them you are not a criminal for wanting control over your body. Tell them they don't own you. The time for waiting is over, Ministers. The people have spoken. We demand the right to choose. We demand the right to have children, if and when we want to. We demand to live in a country that does not let women die in hospitals because they needed an abortion to save their life. We are not asking for your permission - we are telling you. You don't own us Thank you to Lena Dunham and the whole gang for the premise!

          Download the 2013 NEVER AGAIN lantern template from http://i.imgur.com/CV3f8o1.jpg Follow instructions here to print and make the lantern - Place a lighted candle in it in your window in remembrance of Savita Halappanavar. You are welcome to share a photo of your lantern with the general location to info@abortionrights.ie or via @freesafelegal on Twitter This commemorative lantern is a symbol of sympathy and solidarity; sympathy for the unnecessary death of Savita Hallapanavar and solidarity with her family's struggle for justice. The light offers a symbol of hope, marking the anniversary of Savita's tragic and unnecessary death; a tradition that is observed in both Ireland and India. This small gesture in memory of Savita might also be a big comfort for women and men in your community who have suffered due to the silencing caused by stigmatisation of abortion in Ireland. In times of tragedy, the saddest experience is the feeling of not being able to do anything. Sadly, we cannot do anything for Savita now but together we can make sure it never again happens to anyone else.

                Create a Dance for Obama Flash Mob on your campus or in your community to educate voters. You can learn the moves right here! Why are we doing this? Dance for Obama | Keep Our Bodies Free! was created by a small group of Colorado women - who love dance - to let women know how Republican policies threaten women's rights to reproductive health care and equal pay. We use Flash Mobs to get attention, then we give out information on the appalling Republican attacks on women’s health including restrictions on abortion in multiple states, invasive mandatory vaginal probes, plans to restrict access to birth control, and proposals to defund Planned Parenthood, one of the few sources of reasonably priced preventive health care for women. Many women are unaware of these radical policies, and if they are, they can’t believe we could go backwards in time to the days of back-alley abortions and unwanted pregnancies. A Flash Mob is a powerful and fun way to engage potential voters, especially on campus. You should organize one! It’s easy when you have the music and choreography right at your finger tips. We can help! Visit www.danceforobama.org for details. We’ll upload your video here when you’re done. Obama / Biden 2012 - Do it for ourselves and for our daughters.

                  One Prince Edward Island woman's true story about access her reproductive rights - one of eight true stories about abortion written in first person and read by allies and friends at a "Speak Out" event in Charlottetown, PEI. On Thursday, April 26, 2012, the PEI Abortion Rights Network held this "Speak-Out." Women of many different ages shared their experiences with reproductive choice. Focusing on abortion and the morning after pill, the intention of this event was to change the culture of shame and silence around these topics through the act of storytelling. Speak-Outs have played an important role in the history of the Pro-Choice movement as powerful events that break the culture of fear and shame that serve to silence women. Of particular note is the Redstocking Speak-Out that disrupted the 1969 New York Legislative hearing about abortion which was to include only twelve men and a catholic nun as speakers. The Speak-Out highlighted both the lack of abortion access on PEI and the regressive politics surrounding a debate that was taking place on the same day in the federal legislature, a Conservative-initiated debate on the personhood of a fetus.
