The sad fact is that 41% of New York City babies are aborted.

The chilling fact is that 59.8% of black New York City babies are aborted.

Only FOUR out of TEN black children make it outside of the womb in New York City.

We must stop the industrialized killing of our unborn children. What legacy will you leave?

The sad fact is that each night, more than 21,000 children are homeless in NYC.

The number of people sleeping in shelters has grown 60 percent in the past decade.

Families make up 3/4ths of the homeless population.

53% of the homeless in shelters are black, 32% are Latino.

65.5 percent of high school seniors graduate in NYC.

There are currently 12,568 children in foster care in NYC.

In 2011, there were over 90,000 separate reports of abuse/neglect in NYC. 

There are 131 children in secure detention. 112 in non-secure detention.

There are more than 108,000 children in NYC who have a parent that is incarcerated. More than 73 percent of women who are incarcerated have a child under the age of 18. 

But go ahead and try to explain how you care about children. Just try to justify how you can ignore all of these children, for a fetus. 

Forcing people to stay pregnant does nothing for children. Advocate for better sex education. Fight to help PoC who find themselves with unwanted pregnancies. Don’t ignore the fact that nearly 90 percent of pregnancies that end in abortion for PoC were unplanned, use this information to help them. 

My legacy is one of respect, understanding, education, and compassion. You’ll catch on eventually. 

That rebuttal is the best thing I’ve read all week.

Violent Relationships with Dr. Leelia Franck

Don’t forget that women of color and trans women (and especially trans women of color) receive even higher sentences for hurting/killing in self-defense against abusive partners than cis and/or white women.

i don’t want you
to love me
for my flaws,
i want you
to love me enough,
to demand
that i grow.

m.v., you can love my skin and hate the scars i put on it. (via yesdarlingido)

You can’t pick and choose what parts of feminism you want. You can’t support your queer sisters but not your trans sisters. You can’t support your fat sisters but not your sisters of colour. Being a feminist means creating a positive and equal space for women. The second you start excluding women based on which characteristics you do or do not find appealing you have defeated the whole point of being a feminist.

Had a dream just now that Macklemore was named TIME magazine’s Most Muggable Musician and he showed up at an interview to accept the award and they mugged him

What’s the point of mugging someone who only has $20 in their pocket

$20 can get you many peanuts

explain how

Money can be exchanged for goods and services
