On July 5, 2012 Heather Surovik was only days away from giving birth to her son Brady, when tragedy struck. A drunk driver, on his fifth DUI, struck Heather’s car, killing baby Brady and injuring the rest of the family. Prosecutors were not able to charge the drunk driver with the death of baby Brady because under Colorado law a preborn child is not considered a person. The media quickly dehumanized Brady by referring to him as a “fetus.” Planned Parenthood tells Heather that she didn’t lose her son, she lost a “pregnancy.”
Now Heather is fighting to pass Amendment 67, to protect mothers and their babies. We stand with Heather. Will you? Start by watching this short documentary about Heather, her family, and her son Brady: http://ift.tt/1npXaRf http://ift.tt/1lvCGT3
Planned Parenthood didn’t tell her anything? Why would they make a statement to something that doesn’t concern them? Why do you lie so much?
Because you have no truth to stand on :3
Shh.. You’ll make some people go google to verify if this exists anywhere but on blatantly biased prolife sites and start to question if they’re believing in total horseshit. Personhood USA doesn’t want that!
Nevermind that they lie, steal people’s intellectual property, are transphobic, homophobic, misogynistic, and rape apologists. ;)
According to HuffPost, she was 8 months pregnant, not ‘days from giving birth,’ as PHU claims. Also, the bill isn’t against abortions, it’s against ‘reckless’ or ‘intentional’ termination of a WANTED pregnancy. WANTED.
Also, ‘However House Bill 1154, or the Crimes Against Pregnant Women Act, also made clear that it would not confer personhood, preserving a woman’s right to choose.’
So fuck you, personhoodusa, for manipulating that family’s story for your own shitty purposes.
instead of calling someone a “grammar nazi”, why not try:
- word nerd
- syntax whiplash
- fuckin geek
- speech preacher
- punctuate infatuate-er

In a dystopian future 35 years after an ecological WWIII has torn the world apart, East African survivors of the devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.

This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
- do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
- works every time
"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
As soon as I learned Nicki Minaj voiced Sugilite, I had to
I am here to remind all that Oberyn Martell, whilst being a sexy mo fo and loving paramour, also was smart as hell, forging SIX maester chains before he got FUCKING BORED and went on to form his own mercenary company.
During this time he fathered a half dozen bastards, but…
“Scott, wait, not here…”
This was the scene that made me start taking the show seriously. The way it subverted and lampshaded a major horror movie trope…

A lot of dudes think women dress slutty for them, but honestly if men weren’t such fucking animals I would dress 300000% more slutty then I do now. You people ruin everything.
I wanna wear this shit outside god damn it.
Oh my god SO TRUE. I would constantly wear thigh highs and short skirts and underbust corsets because I look so fucking good. God forbid women like their OWN bodies, too.
For real !! like 90 % of my fucking wardrobe now is just for cam cause it’s too sexy to wear in public. Fucking bullshit. I use to wear thigh highs with garters with shorts a lot but I got sooo many comments. Fucking… people. You literally just saw the tops of my thighs. But all the dudes are like ‘Why wear that if you don’t want attention???’ cause i look fine as hell and I don’t give a shit about some fucking random broke ass dudes on the corner.
I can’t even express how much this describes my feelings. Bitch I wear my corsets and my fishnets and my heels the size you wish your dick was because they make me feel fucking fabulous, not because I want you to tell me how much you’d like to “smash” me.
Heels the size you wish your dick was.
Brenda Ann Kenneally takes photographs, but to call her a photographer isn’t quite accurate. She prefers the term “digital folk artist,” and when you hear how she interacts with her subjects—families living below the poverty line in Troy, New York—and tells their stories, it seems an apt description. Kenneally doesn’t simply create media, she curates it: She collects family photo albums, school and medical records, letters from prison, scrapbooks, and even screenshots from Facebook. Since she began her project, “Upstate Girls,” more than 10 years ago, she’s amassed thousands of photos, several terabytes of video, and scores of other documents. “If you’re doing documentary, you need to be the foremost authority on whatever you’re doing. I don’t know anything about almost everything; there are so many things to know now. But I know some stuff about these couple places, and you have to want to share that,” she said. “The pictures are just a way to remind me about what I’ve learned. No longer do I care about having pictures in a frame on the wall.”
