Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”

Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.

The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:

During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with

Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family. 

Reblogging again because this is the “good” that anti-choicers do in this world.

Forsake actual people for their oppressive beliefs.

And in the end, did they even really care about the fetus or the family?



anyway here’s a whole bunch of trans-friendly rape recovery hotlines and clinics 


These are from a wonderful book called The Art Of Comforting. Check it out and learn how to be better at supporting people going through difficult things.

I want to scream. If there are period dramas that focus heavily on women, instead of men, they always focus on lovvvv. It’s their way of making a man the main interest. Bleh.

I just realised that men rape comatose women. Yeah. I needed that today. Thanks.


When disabled people say they don’t want to be treated differently, we mean we don’t want to hear your voice go up 5 million octaves as you talk to us like we’re toddlers, or see your face contort into a big plastic smile when you see us. 

We mean, treat us with the respect and dignity a human being has every right to.

We do not mean, ignore our disability and hold us to abled standards. 

Abled people just don’t get that.

Nothing shows me how different americans are to europeans than them whining about the dark knight being gritty and dark.
When a film/anything doesn’t end with a hero saving the world, and having an hour long monologue about good and evil, and how he gave people hope and they changed *passers by clap*, with american flag in the background, it’s gritty.

Okay but no seriously, can’t you see how even your allegedly dark films, comics, books are written like they were bible moral stories? Can you not see the bullshit?

I’m just curious.

Let America decide!

Like, i have yet to see an american mainstream film or tv series that isn’t pompous and “gather around children, I’ll teach you a story, and I’m going to do this in the most obvious way possible”.
