This is MY Body: A Video About Equal Rights for Women

A moving video about equal rights for women is going viral. Women’s rights are still a major issue, despite how much we have come in the last century. Women are paid less than their male counterparts. Women have unnecessary c-sections performed on them. Women are raped in the streets during broad daylight. Women are harassed and even kicked out of businesses for breastfeeding. Women are forced to find other clinics to provide birth control, STD and cancer screenings because Planned Parenthood’s funding was cut from the Susan G. Komen Foundation in an attempt to disable women’s access to abortion services. State sanctioned rape is not acceptable but somehow, it is happening!

From Care2 ‘This Is My Body’ Video Sees Women Speaking Out For Control:‘This Is My Body’ Video Sees Women Speaking Out For Control

The women in the video bring up things women around the country face every day — harassment when they try to hold control over their own bodies and laws that block them from choosing their own health care routes.

“I am done being excluded from decisions about my sexual and reproductive health,” says one woman.

“I will not be quiet, I will not wait my turn, I will not heed you,” says another. “I know my physical and mental strength and I do not fear you.”

How can you help women? Share this video. Share your knowledge of things you’re passionate about with other women. For me, that is reproductive rights, birth stories, and breastfeeding support and advice. 

Let’s make a better world for our children, especially our daughters.

Happy Friday! Top links…Komen & Planned Parenthood update, Forced school vaccinations, Hair in bread, Women drivers, Guilty parents

Happy Friday! Any fun weekend plans? We’re not doing a whole lot, just the farmer’s market tomorrow, and catching up on family time with the husband. Side note – never trust a potty training toddler with a whole roll of toilet paper or a whole bag of wipes. Ever. You’ll find yourself with a clogged toilet two days in a row. Thank you sweet child.

Here are my top finds today on the interweb:

Komen foundation reverses decision to stop Planned Parenthood funding – Associated Press

Got a taste of a little public backlash, did they?

Watch video on ABCnews.com

Vaccination teams enter schools with guns and force vaccinate children. A teacher who wouldn’t give them permission to do it because lack of parental consent, was arrested. I am appalled. No, this didn’t happen in the US but we’re not far off, considering a recent California law passed allowing children to be vaccinated in school without parental consent.
