Bowl-a-Thon page of the week: Amy "Bimanual" Gordon!
March 7th, 2014
Congratulations to this week's Bowl-a-Thon Page of the Week WINNER Amy "Bimanual" Gordon, a soon-to-be nurse-midwife bowling on the Yale Nursing Students for Choice team for the New York Abortion Access Fund!
"Childbirth and parenthood, when freely chosen, is a journey to be celebrated and supported. And for that free choice to mean anything at all, we must equally celebrate and support the ability to opt out of parenthood when it isn't right. That means comprehensive and sex-positive education in schools. It means access to safe, affordable, and appropriate birth control. And, because our contraceptive technologies will never be perfect--and neither will we--it means unfettered access to abortion."
UNFETTERED ACCESS TO ABORTION!
She goes on to unload: "I'm angry that the Hyde Amendment is still on the books, not only restricting funding but also sanctioning the idea that abortion is insupportable and uncommon, that it's something other people do."
(Let's hear it again for UNFETTERED ACCESS TO ABORTION!)
And that's why she's going balls out for abortion access! As of today, the New York Abortion Access Fund is in second place nationwide, just behind the DC Abortion Fund on the National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon leaderboard, but that could all change in the blink of an eye.
"I bowl. Probably terribly. And I ask for your support."
