therewerebirds: triflesandparsnips: This morning my daughter, who is nearly four, saw the stretch marks on my hips and stomach. She ran her hands over them and asked what they were. “I got them when I grew up,” I said, “and a few more when I had you.” I grinned down at her. “They’re my stripes. You’ll get stripes too when you grow up.” She was overjoyed. “Really?” I think she’s in her room...

Birthing While Black →
reverieofb: sweetblackgrannies: Despite an incredible birthing experience facilitated by my personal angel/ob-gyn, from almost the moment my baby took her first breath, her mother was treated like a 14-year-old drug-addicted welfare queen, there to push out yet another daddy-less baby.

theoppressedlittlefetus: bendthedirt: Just so you guys know you cant use the same argument for abortion that you do for gay marriage: “If you dont agree with it dont get one” Gay marriage is about love and that statement actually makes sense because it IS only about the consenting people. Abortion is about murder…. and it ISNT only affecting the mother. It is affecting the father, the baby,...
