Happy Friday Everyone! Happy #TransgenderDayOfVisibility! #NationalKindnessDay
On this joyful Friday, we decided to unveil our new Friday Series coming this April. If you haven't heard, this week Mike Pence broke a Senate Tie To Allow States To Defund Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides birth control, cancer screenings, and STI testing; educates on issues such as sexual education, mental health, and more--focus on women's health (bu not limited to) and offers abortion services.
Quote from Senator/Representative who wrote an Op-Ed for the Washington Examiner:
“Taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize the abortion industry in this country,” Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) and Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.), the sponsors of the House and Senate resolutions
After reading some of the comments on various new outlets as well as, Twitter, we've come to the realization that some individuals online (and even in office) are 1. unaware of the functions of contraceptives, 2. The types of contraceptives, and 3. most importantly, that some individuals don't know what a contraceptive is or have been misinformed and believe that it's the abortion pill.
Which is why we decided to dedicate every other Friday to contraceptive learning: This includes but not limited to,
- The name
- Resources and everything in between
Until then, please enjoy this wonderful and informative video by MIC " How does birth control work? Nobody seems to know."
