shows I watch for the plot
i’m not pro-choice i’m pro-access
because having the legal right to an abortion doesn’t mean shit if you can’t pay the $500 and up cost or you don’t have any way to get to the only abortion clinic in your state because it’s thirty miles away and you don’t have the money for a car and there’s no public transportation or if you just don’t have the time to get to an almost-inaccessible clinic because you work three jobs and you can’t afford to take a day off!!
not to mention what if the clinic is one of those fake clinics where conservatives pretend to be abortion doctors and tell you that you’re a horrible person for wanting one, or what if you don’t feel safe in a clinic because everyone assumes you’re a woman but maybe you’re non-binary or a man or really a pregnant person of any gender who doesn’t want to be pregnant!!!
or your decision is questioned because you’re autistic or bipolar or any one of a number of neurodiversities and someone thinks you couldn’t possibly be “”“”sane”“”” enough to choose what you do with your body
a person’s ability to access care that they need is so much more important than their “choice” whether or not to have that care. because lots of people (trans* people, people of color, low-income people, low-income trans* people of color etc) have to go through pregnancies that they don’t want or can’t afford because while they have the legal right to their “choice”, they don’t have access to the money or time or safety to actually MAKE that choice.
fight for access
newsflash: most abusive people have a reason they became that way. they may have been abused themselves, they may have a horrible backstory that will bring you to tears. but that does not excuse the way they treat people. it does not mean they get a free pass. you can be sorry that their life was shit, but they do not get to ruin someone else’s.
i just hope that i never stop falling in love with shows and characters and celebrities and stories because i can’t imagine living life without having these things to be passionate about

Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel went for a run in Allvar, Öland this morning. Their bodyguards were less sporty and used bicycles to keep up with the couple.
The fighting between Israel and Gaza-based Palestinian militant groups, now in its 15th day, is so severe that it is visible from space. A German astronaut on the International Space Station named Alexander Gerst, who has been posting photos on his Twitter account, posted this on Wednesday, in which he says the explosions of Israeli air strikes and Palestinian rockets are visible:
The photo is oriented such that north is to the right and south to the left; that dark area at the top is the Mediterranean Sea and the brightest spot, on the coast, is Tel Aviv. To the left of Tel Aviv, just 44 miles to the south, is Gaza City, the largest city in Gaza and the location of a lot of the worst fighting.
