without a doubt the most support i’ve received for my ep, and in life came from and is coming from black women. i appreciate each and every single one of you so much. first and foremost a black woman brought me into this world, and raised me, and made me into who i am. i’d be nothing without her. my girlfriend a black woman helped me believe in myself when no one else did, and when i didn’t even believe. when i found it hard to believe and see worth in myself, she did. i’d be nothing with out her. i’ve received so much love, and inspiration from you all. you guys personify all things right in this world, the world is sincerely a better place because of you. from my experience i haven’t met a more selfless, and positively strong and progressive group of people. i’m so appreciative for your existence. thank you thank you thank you. thank you for just being you, regardless of any adversity you face. you repeatedly rise and overcome, and still manage to bless the world every single day. i’d be nothing without you. the world would be nothing without you. there is not a more important people on this earth, than the black woman.

Tear Gas Is an Abortifacient. Why Won’t the Anti-Abortion Movement Oppose It?

mangoestho:

A couple of years ago, when I was newly pregnant and reporting in the West Bank, some of my local colleagues insisted that I skip covering a protest at an Israeli checkpoint. At first, I was resistant to letting pregnancy stand in the way of my work, but they knew from experience that there might be tear gas, and tear gas, they said, causes miscarriages.

They were right: though rigorous studies are few, there is evidence that tear gas is an abortifacient. In 2011, Chile temporarily suspended its use after a University of Chile studylinked it to miscarriage and fetal harm. Investigating the use of tear gas in Bahrain in 2012, Physicians for Human Rights found that local doctors were reporting increased numbers of miscarriages in exposed areas. And UN officials have connected tear gas to miscarriages in the Palestinian territories.

This means it’s likely that police in Ferguson, Missouri, have been spraying abortion-causing chemicals on crowds of civilians. Recently at TheNation.com, Dani McClain wrote about the killing of black youth as a reproductive justice issue, one that goes to the heart of the rights of parents to raise their children in peace, safety and dignity. She’s correct, of course, but if the anti-abortion movement were actually concerned about the well-being of the unborn, then the violence in Ferguson would be a pro-life issue as well.

Vile photos show the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border no one is talking about

With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.

According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process. The spill released around 10 million gallons of acid into the Bacanuchi and Sonora Rivers.
