It’s okay to be selfish.

It’s okay to take care of yourself and your needs.

It’s okay to do what is best for you.

Selfishness is not always a negative thing.

My dad has my favourite saying about this. He says that taking care of your self is never selfish. Selfishness is asking more of someone else than you would of yourself. So while I agree with the OP, I don’t think it’s even accurate to associate self care with selfishness.

Take good care of yourselves, lovelies. You deserve it and you need it and I will roundhouse kick anyone who tells you otherwise in the face ♥

I love this so much.

Anonymous said: That video of the creepy lady mourning over a fetus that wasn't even hers was probably the most effective short horror film ever! Great acting, I think I won't be able to sleep for days! I'm scared to go to the bathroom at night too! They should turn it into a Hollywood horror film. "Baby Isaiah & the creepy lady with the fetus fetish" ohh scary! I better cover myself with the blankets. I don't want her to come pull my legs at night.

baddrunkenbarpoetry said: I support the destruction of Islam because of the Jihad they're on to force the world to be Muslim, and because Islam inspires hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to do horrific things only a devil would do like raping kids, honor killing daughters, using kids as suicide bombs, beheading people, kidnapping, denying women education, video taping murder, hijacking, killing , killing, killing, killing. got it?

You are so so so so so so so so wrong.

"The true Muslim believes that God’s creation is meaningful and that life has a sublime purpose beyond the physical needs and material activities of man. The purpose of life is to worship God. This does not simply mean that we have to spend our entire lives inconstant seclusion and absolute meditation. To worship God is to know Him; to love Him; to obey His commandments; to enforce His law in every aspect of life; to serve .His cause by doing the right and shunning the evil; and to be just to Him, to ourselves, and to our fellow human being and To worship God is to "live" life not to run away from it."

Islam is as much of a religion about love and respect for all humans as Christianity and shares a very, very similar interpretation of the same religious figures. Those who choose to act in a violent manner for the sake of Islam are considered to be horrible extremists even within their own religion, their own country, and their own communities. In fact, 93% of Muslims do NOT support extremist views, and millions of them are actively speaking out against the violence that other “Muslims” perpetuate. 

Not to mention that western culture has long been a source of violence and instability to so many Muslim countries with the brutal warfare between their country and the (oil-seeking) west, it’s not really surprising that some members of their country would become angry with America. Terrorism is not okay or excusable, but creating devastation within an undeserving country is not excusable either.

AND on top of that, you are choosing to ignore the violence and murder being perpetuated by Christian extremist groups all over the world.

You are condemning a vast group of ethnically and culturally diverse people for actions that they did not commit and beliefs that they do not support.

You are the asshole, got it?

I can’t believe anyone is stupid enough to actually back Islam at this point in the game. There is nothing GOOD about Islam. They are murdering psycho’s. They want nothing but to destroy people they don’t like, or agree with, or who look at them wrong. There may be Muslims who follow a watered down version of Islam. But over all Islam is about hate.

just gonna reblog this so everybody can see the full extent of tiffy’s ignorance and hatred of things that she doesn’t understand.

Seriously!?! Have you seen the news lately!? How about the 300 Syrian soldiers that were made to strip down to their undies, walked out into the desert and killed!? The beheaded American?! The 9/11 attacks?! Or do you live in a fairy tale land where none of that happened?!

Tell me, Tiffy, are you Muslim? And if you aren’t Muslim, have you researched it thoroughly? No? Then you aren’t qualified to say what Islam is really all about, or that there is nothing good about the religion at all. Not to mention that all of those events you listed were perpetrated by EXTREMISTS, not your average Muslims. 

Man, you’d never know that Christian extremists had ever done anything bad. Or Jewish ones. I’m personally anti-religion with all religions because I think all it does is motivate people to hate others, but being like a caveman and going “Islam bad Christianity good” is just wrong.

Petition to put into place mandatory organ donation and tax increases. 

Proclaiming that you’re prolife will automatically mandate you donate organs. All organs are free game. Your life means nothing compared to saving someone else’s. Tax increases will apply to cover cost of forced pregnancies. 

People who proclaim they are prochoice are given tax deductions and better parking. 

Good deal?

I’m 100% pro-choice and this is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard

Ahem.

50 Million Names Project | Violence is not the end of the story!

your-lies-ruin-lives:

prolifeforall:

50 Million Names began with a number. When the abortion toll reached 50,000,000 I was pierced by awareness that I could not even begin to imagine a number that large, much less embrace that number of souls in my own heart with the love each deserved. I wished there were some way each child could be named, loved, prayed for…acknowledged as a unique human being instead of a statistic. We didn’t have the technology then, but we do now! A name is the beginning of dignity.

So y’all can throw together 50 million names for fetuses that never touched the earth/had names, but can’t get the list of 650 names a year of actual people who were actually here to pay them a memorial for having died in pregnancy or childbirth? 

Tell me how you think all of them are equal again. ;)

You cannot give a fetus rights to a pregnant person’s body and say that they are both of the same value.

Well then he is clearly a bad doctor I’d he is totally unaware of the possibly deadly conditions that accompany pregnancy for some.

This is kind of like asking a dentist about getting a breast reduction.

The right to life comes first.

If the right to life comes before all other rights then why are there homeless people who die from exposure on the streets? Why is blood, organ, marrow, and tissue donation not mandatory for all people who are able donors?
Because the right to life does not come first. That’s why.

Pro-Choice Teddy Bear hates the argument that “a baby is the consequence of having sex”.  A baby is not a consequence.  A baby is not a punishment.  A baby is not a lesson.  A baby is a baby, and babies deserve parents who love them, who want them, and who can/will take care of them.  If you do not want to carry your pregnancy to term, then it is ok to have an abortion!  It may be the most responsible thing you can do.  Pro-Choice Teddy Bear will support you 100% in your decision to have an abortion.  If you want to keep the pregnancy, Pro-Choice Teddy Bear will also support you.  Parenting, adoption, and abortion are all valid choices here, and no one of them is any better than any other.  It’s up to you to decide what you want to do.
If there is ever anything you need, just let Pro-Choice Teddy Bear know.

Only pro-lifers would want to be considered “hijackers.”  (Terrorists, much?)
So, I thought this wasn’t until September 1st, with live-tweeting during PBS’s airing of After Tiller.  Unless pro-lifers want to simply trash the hashtags with their garbage, before that date. 
For those of you who don’t know, Dr. Tiller was a doctor who openly performed late-term abortions.  He was assassinated thanks to pro-life terrorists and a vigilante. (Operation Rescue had ties to Dr. Tiller’s assassin, the constant stigma against abortion reaffirmed the the assassin’s violent intentions.)
After Tiller is a 2013 documentary that concerns the only four doctors who still perform late-term abortions in the U.S after Dr. Tiller’s assassination.
This kind of shit, this attempt to silence abortion support, is why abortion stigma exists.  This mob-like attack on abortion scares people away from the subject and from abortion as a choice.  They are scaring people away from freedom of choice.
So, what can we, as pro-choice advocates, do?  Well, during pro-life “hijacking,” make sure you don’t let them have the whole tag!  Post, counterpost, spam up Twitter with your support (you can connect your tumblr to your twitter, fyi.)  Why?  Even if there’s pro-life garbage in our tags, enough posts make the tag trend.  If it trends, people see.  Even if there’s pro-life garbage in the tag, seeing pro-choice support and abortion support is massively important!

How To Identify Crisis Pregnancy Centers
Crisis pregnancy centers, or pregnancy resource centers, disguise themselves as medical facilities, but usually have no licensed doctors, nurses or counselors. They often appear under “Abortion Alternatives,” and may have names similar to abortion clinics nearby in order to confuse patients into entering their buildings instead of the real clinics.
Once you enter a CPC, their mission is to prevent you from getting an abortion at any cost. They will use misleading language, delay tactics, emotional manipulation, intimidation, and outright lies to either persuade you against abortion or to make you miss your appointment. The worst part? It’s all completely legal and funded by federal dollars.
CPCs do their best to appear as legitimate abortion clinics, so how can you tell which is which? Here is a list of red flags for CPCs:
The words “crisis” or “resource” appear in the center’s name
Their ads use language like “Pregnant & Scared?”
They offer free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds
When asked if they provide abortions or contraception, they will not give a direct answer
The waiting room has biased pamphlets, sometimes with graphic pictures labeled as abortions
They attempt to make you feel guilty about considering abortion
They offer baby items, such as diapers and formula
They downplay the effectiveness of contraception and emphasize abstinence
They emphasize the dangers of abortion (Fact: fewer than 0.3% of patients experience complications requiring hospitalization)
They discuss the false connections between abortion and breast cancer, infertility, or mental illness, often referred to as post-abortion stress syndrome
Regardless of how you talk about the pregnancy, they refer to “your baby,” the “preborn child,” “post-abortive women,” and say that you are “already a mother.”
