Battlepanda: Surely it has not come to this yet...


Always trying to figure things out with the minimum of bullshit and the maximum of belligerence.

Surely it has not come to this yet...

...or has it?

I don't know how this post makes me feel. Freaked out for sure, but also oddly empowered. The instructions are well-written and, intelligently applied, would at least ensure that we don't go back to the nightmare of the coathanger days. I understand those like Dada who are justifiably horrified by the idea of *shudder* DIY abortions. But given the inherent risks and costs of a pregnancy brought to term, it seems inevitable that women are going to turn to underground abortions in the absence of a safe and legal option to terminate their unwanted pregnancies. Better that this information is out there than not.
