White Men Say The Darndest Things

White male capitalists are going to have an uphill battle convincing me that the actions of impoverished third world women are what’s ruining the planet.

civilrightsactivist reblogged this and commented:

If you live in the South, your access to reproductive health services is greatly reduced. The same is true for a few other states, like Ohio, Indiana, North and South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Why? Because the legislators in 27 states have decided to place themselves and their misogynistic beliefs between the decisions you would normally make about your reproductive health in consultation with your medical care provider. And in 18 of these states, the legislators are considered to be "extremely hostile" to women's healthcare. It's gotten significantly worse in the last four years. State legislators have placed restrictions on access to abortion as well as on family planning and related services. The 18 most hostile states are:

  • Alabama
  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • Florida
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Louisiana
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • Nebraska
  • North Dakota
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • South Dakota
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Wisconsin
