Abortioneers' Blackout (after a quick post)

We at Abortioneers are supporting the online blackout today and will keep this brief. If you have no idea what I am talking about read here and here.

So, why do the Abortioneers care about this?

Any efforts to increase internet censorship or infringe on free speech will impact us. That simple.

The Abortioneers started because there was a hunger for information straight from the source itself--something that wasn't happening in the "real" world. We gather on the internet to fuel this blog and thus disseminate information about a highly stigmatized and already censored topic. It is a human right for people to have information on abortion, and yes, I personally believe that includes information on controlling ones own reproductive functions however they choose--and for many people that information can only come from the internet.

Thanks for supporting us AND this blackout.

This is not a debate forum -- there are hundreds of other sites for that. This is a safe space for abortion care providers and one that respects the full spectrum of reproductive choices; comments that are not in that spirit will either wind up in the spam filter or languish in the moderation queue.
