Happy Birthday MizzyB
My grandmother is in the purple. It was taken from a photograph that my aunt painted. My grandmother was a suffragette. My Mom was very proud. This post is in my grandmother and mother’s memories. My aunt’s a great artist and I think I will photograph her stuff and sell it here.
EC is NOT the same thing as Mifeprex or RU-486. EC will not terminate an existing pregnancy. EC will not work if a woman is already pregnant.
To women from my generation, the first generation to grow up with the pill, this is a miracle. Because you’re not always on the pill. Other contraception can more easily fail.
I do remember giving condoms the balloon test. I remember one July 4th weekend with my boyfriend Zachary.
I really really would have gotten this pill had it been avaliable and then I would have never had to make a decision I have never regretted but found almost impossible to make.
I was a “mistake.” Never to me, my entire extended family and friends, but always to my birth mother. I lived in a foster home, just for four months. I know how amazing and random life is. I strongly believe that all women and girls should have access to birth control.
This pill prevents the egg and sperm from ever meeting. Girls and women are raped.
This pill is available to women, eighteen and over,without a prescription. Younger girls can get it with a prescription. Don’t ever be ashamed of asking for it.
It can save you from the most difficult decision you will ever have to make whether you decide to keep the pregnancy or terminate it.
You can make the choice to be pregnant or not.
Please use a condom until you know everything you need to know about your partner. But accidents happen. Rape happens.
You have one modicum of control. Control equals power. You can choose not to become pregnant if you’re raped or didn’t use birth control or suspect that it might have failed. And I don’t know why but women usually know. We just do.
Make yourself powerful.
