It’s on!

Whew! I think I need to sit down. It’s been quite a whirlwind  since Thursday when I officially became the lead plaintiff in the ACLU and Planned Parenthood lawsuit against Richard Ziser’s Personhood Initiative!

First, let me say to all my feminist, progressive and generally wonderful family, friends and fans: Thank you so much! I have received such a great response from the community! Thank you! I can feel your support!

And you’re not the only ones responding to this case. The mainstream media and pro-lifers are having their say, too. The Sun, Jon Ralston’s Flash, the RJ (and again today, explaining how birth control pills would be outlawed if the initiative were to pass), The RGJ, Channel 8 and others.

I’m glad the word is getting out there and hopefully with more awareness will come more support.

Stay tuned for more updates … in the meantime, are you following The Siren on Twitter? You should! Different content from Facebook or the main blog. More interaction! C’mon, send me a tweet!

  1. Ban birth control? Did you even read the article you linked to?

    “Birth control designed to prevent a pregnancy before one occurs would not be prohibited, he said.

    “It is really very simple,” said Vancura, who described himself as a scientist with a doctorate in physics. “Our amendment is about life and the right to life. Forms of birth control that do not cause an abortion would not be prohibited. With an abortion, someone dies.”

  2. I guess I wasn’t clear in my post. The personhood initiative would ban birth contol pills (among other contraceptive measures and infertility treatments). The article discusses many other birth control measures that would be outlawed.
