Hi all,

I manage and create content for an online comic set in an abortion clinic at http://www.withfetus.com

While writing the comic, i had the idea of staging a large demonstration of the effects of outlawing abortion and have organized a fundraiser to raise money to gather supplies for performing unlicensed abortions to send to the Susan B. Anthony List, a major supporter of "pro-life" politicians.  The indiegogo page contains much of the information regarding the fundraiser.  With the overall goal of sending a lifetime supply of wire hangers to the organization to demonstrate how enacting such policies would not reduce the abortion rate (in fact it would likely go up) but rather make abortion much less safe.

If they truly desire less safe abortions, they're free to continue their policies and the fundraiser would supply them with materials for women to conduct less safe abortions, but hopefully the action of sending so many hangers to them could force a reevaluation of the effects of their practices (not to mention a greater awareness from the public).

Thank you,
-d

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
