"I wish I could find a god’s teeth to grit them for him
I’d cut off his ears, put them to my heart, he’d hear me break,
I’d make it obvious to see,
show him a face like water frozen over,
a face that’s absorbed everything,
show him it was the wrong day,
show him that I’ve seen my reach,
explain to me,
just sit down, let it be, if only today, if only for me..”
I remember the day this came out, I was amazing that they’d made another full length of hits. One of my top five most listened to, so I’m happy the vinyl came in the mail today, three years after release. Also, the intro to Spine…
Our moving truck got stolen around 4:17 am this morning, along with all my studio equipment, backup drives, instruments (even a 900 pound piano!) and all of our lifelong possession. We lost EVERYTHING.
'And it's a battered old suitcase to a hotel someplace,
And a wound that will never heal.
No prima donna, the perfume is on an
old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey.
And goodnight to the street sweepers, the night watchmen flame keepers
And goodnight to mathilda, too.’
Over 300,000 children are murdered inside Planned Parenthood clinics every year. http://ift.tt/ITL4iD
BULL FUCKING SHIT.
My mother was three months pregnant with me when she waltzed into Planned Parenthood. But she didn’t get an abortion. Not because she had a ‘sudden change of heart’ nor because someone ‘lead her Jesus’ but because she went there to make sure I was and would be born healthy.
My parents were two poor young adults in their late teens and early twenties when I was conceived. They lived in a tiny apartment and had no insurance, but they wanted me. My mom drove herself to Planned Parenthood from the third month of pregnancy to the fifth (until she finally got medical insurance.) There she got the ultrasound screenings, found out I was a girl, got the prenatal vitamins and were referred to see the physician I’ve been going to from my birth to now.
Thanks to Planned Parenthood, I was born healthy at six pounds, seven ounces. I had no malformations, no preventable disorders and no preventable health issues. The only thing that occurred was I was in ‘fetal distress’ and was born a week before the due date.
I ‘made it out alive’ and thanks to Planned Parenthood I ‘made it out’ healthy.
Take this bullshit elsewhere.
TL;DR?: Read the bold.
During my first pregnancy (which was planned and very much wanted), I went to PP to confirm my pregnancy after I got a positive test. The staff was super excited for me. I had seen them for years for my birth control when I was uninsured. So they had been a part of my whole journey with my husband—from dating, through marriage, to pregnancy. Thanks to them, we were able to get pregnant when we were ready. Also thanks to them, when I developed complications early on, we were able to get the care we needed quickly (we were at a hospital where the doctors did NOT have a good record of listening to patients) because I was able to show him paperwork from PP confirming my pregnancy and dates (he didn’t believe me without it).
Years later and 2000 miles away, I went to another Planned Parenthood for a blood test to confirm my second pregnancy (again for which we planned and struggled). We were between providers at the time and our insurance required a blood test to prove pregnancy before they would cover my care. PP was the only way we could get that and we did quickly and at a reasonable price.
We have 3 kids (first pregnancy was twins) that beg to differ with this bullshit!
There is a very good reason the organization’s name is “PLANNED Parenthood.” Making it easier for people to have families when they’re good and ready for them is the biggest reason for its existence.
OP got shot down HECKA quick.
Worked at PP for a few years (teaching sexual health classes in local schools). Amazing group of people doing god’s work. Pretty sure that when I worked there, the statistic was that something between 1% and 3% of the services that PP provided people throughout the year were abortion-related. They don’t “offer” abortions to girls who are pregnant, and to the girls who request one, after reviewing all of the material on adoption and other options that they are given by PP, they offer counseling and help. Don’t ever try to demonize an organization that improves our country every day despite the constant threats and yelling from those who are hurting it. Its funny to watch, but idiots might believe you.
