F*ck the theocrats, I'm all for welcoming political refugees from a 3rd world sh*t hole. Never thought that sh*t hole would be the US, but here we are.

Yeah, we're headed straight towards becoming the United States of Afghanistan at an alarming pace.

Seems it's past the point where simply going about your lives and voting every couple of years isn't going to maintain your way of life.

I recommend:

1) Organizing & protesting

Failing that,

2) Civil disobedience

Don't want to contemplate Step 3.

In the late 80's many Canadians travelled to the US for abortions.  One country has stepped out of the dark ages while the other has stepped back in.

I'd call them a banana-republican but that is unfair to banana-republics who do not have the advantage of a strong economy and a foundational/historical democracy to start with.

Trips to tribal health centers if the Hyde Amendment wasn't in the way.

Just a list for those who want to do something now. Throw me the names of other charities and ill add them.

List of Charities one can Support in the Wake of the Roe v. Wade Choice.
List Originally appeared on
https://www.gamespot.com/articles/help-the-fight-for-reproductive-rights-by-donating-to-charity/1100-6503134/


National Network of abortion Funds

If you're not sure where to start, The National Network of Abortion Funds has organized a fundraiser that splits your donation between more than 80 different abortion clinics. You can even opt to make your donation monthly, ensuring each charity benefits from your generosity.

https://secure.actblue.com/donate/fundabortionnow


Access Reproductive Care Southeast

Access Reproductive Care Southeast provides funding and support to people seeking abortions in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee--all states that could lose the right to abortions. In addition, this organization also helps create programs within these states to help provide reproductive education.
https://arc-southeast.org/donate/


Midwest Access Coalition

The Midwest Access Coalition helps people traveling throughout the Midwest access a safe and legal abortion by providing them with travel coordination and costs, lodging, food, medicine, and emotional support. According to MAC's website, the organization has seen a significant increase in callers as of late, meaning your help is absolutely essential.
https://midwestaccesscoalition.org/pages/donate


Indigenous Women Rising

Indigenous Women Rising is an organization committed to ensuring Native and Indigenous peoples are given safe health options, comprehensive reproductive education, and support. Considering a disproportionate number of Native Americans experience sexual violence, the work IWR does is vital to helping these communities.
https://www.iwrising.org/abortion-fund


Women's Reproductive Rights Assistance Project

This organization assists women who are financially unable to pay for safe abortions or emergency contraceptives, providing them with funds and access to reputable clinics. Considering these tend to be the most vulnerable women in the US, WRRAP's work is critical.
https://wrrap.org/donate/


Keep Our Clinics

Keep Our Clinics focuses on providing funding to independent clinics to help keep them up and running. This includes everything from building repairs to hazard pay for staff working during the pandemic.

https://keepourclinics.org/donate/


The Brigid Alliance

Despite many people finding out about their pregancy past the first trimester, finding access to a safe abortion can be difficult. The Brigid Alliance aims to support people through that process, providing them with childcare, lodging, meals, transportation, and additional help.

That'll work until/unless the GOP get control of the executive.  Then CBP will start requiring departure stops from the US before reaching the Canadian border station and communicating back to anti-abortion states about trips to Canada by women from those states who give "suspicious" answers to their exit questions.

Even after it was legalized abortion clinics were almost non-existent and completely besieged by religious nutters.  Thousands of women flocked to the US for help.  The procedure is now much more widely available in Canada (all major cities).

I grew up near the first Morgantaler clinic in Canada.  The protest circuses were over the top. Many women still preferred to go to the US.  It's good to clarify the question of access and should point out that Americans do not need a passport to enter by car.  It's still only a option for those with the financial means or proximity to larger population centres.

Steinback Manitoba is not going to become a destination for many reasons.

There will be an underground railroad to Canada. I imagine it will be well funded by philanthropists. This may be the first shot in a type of cold civil war, without a traditional front...the issues will be the "fronts".

Weatherkiss: What about the women that are too poor to travel to Canada?


If your too poor to travel. I don't have an answer to that. Reach out to one of the charities listed above? Get travel insurance before you leave? IANAOBGYN, but if I was? Depending on situation, I'd be pretty fine with pro bono sometimes.
Really. That's who this hurts the most. If one can afford to travel even a little? No prob. Those that can't? Screwed.
I've said this many times in the last few days. Definately NOT pro-abortion. I don't like it as a general morning after pill or whatever. I AM vehemently pro-choice. I am not the judge of anyone. A person. Any person. Is in charge of what's best for them. I don't have to agree, but I'm not also in their shoes. If one makes smart, informed, and sometimes necessary decisions? That's so far into the realm of "None of your farking business". I don't know what to say. You do what you need to do. Everyone should be able to live with that. (or not, as the case may be)

Well, they always have and always will. Safe abortion always has and always will be available for the wives/daughters/mistresses of male industrialists & politicians.
