Women aren’t the only people who need access to abortions.
I’m trans, and I am personally affected by anti-choice legislation. I am directly harmed by the removal of the buffer zone, the implementation of internal ultrasounds, the dwindling number of health clinics in the South, and by misleading literature distributed by crisis pregnancy centers.
The “War on Women” is a war on me, but I’m not a woman.
I volunteer my time to further access to reproductive healthcare and education. I’ve spent over five years clinic escorting, canvassing, and tabling. I’ve attended speak-outs, protests, vigils, and repro rights conventions.
But it’s really difficult to be present in a movement that is so incredibly cissexist.
The fact of the matter is that trans men/ masculine people and nonbinary people (like myself) are severely underrepresented by the mainstream dialogue about reproductive rights, and this needs to change.
Help save a 16 year-old trans girl of color from being put in a mens adult prison with NO crimes charged on her by emailing Commissioner Katz.
She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/
I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email

There’s no punchline here.
Trans men and non binary trans people exist, get pregnant, and may access abortion services.
LMAO fucking anon.
