Looks like Daddy’s got a full helping of red meat this weekend. #movienight #robocop #theraid
overthe--love asked: Okay so I'm a catholic and I'm prolife. But about your post about the "antis",I am truly sorry for that. I've prayed outside of a clinic before with my youth group but we do it after hours when no one is there and I've done it on the days when the clinic is open but when we stand outside of the clinics we stand in silence and pray. We don't yell or scream or judge people or attack them. I just wanted to let you know that not all of the "antis" do that.
Look, I appreciate you taking the time to send me this message and what you were trying to say or do by doing so, and I hope you don’t take this the wrong way.
But I don’t really care if not all antis do what I encounter every weekend. Because enough of them do. And enough of them stay silent about it. And even if you are just standing outside the clinic praying - you do not need to be there.
You do not need to be anywhere around the clinic. You do not need to be at the clinic during operating hours ever. You do not need to be standing outside the clinic praying while people seek a medical procedure that has nothing to do with you. God is omnipresent, right? So he’ll probably hear your prayers from not an abortion clinic parking lot. And so your goals will still be met without having to unnerve people trying to access medical care if you don’t pray outside of an abortion clinic. God is great like that, right?
So if that’s the case, you have no business being there unless you hope in some way that your prayers or your presence will unnerve someone so much that they will not go into the clinic or will somehow be dissuaded from their decision - not for any reason that is actually relevant to their situation or that makes any changes to it, but simply because they were fearful, nervous, anxious, or simply wanted to freaking privacy (which all medical procedures and patients are entitled to).
So you know, it may not seem “that bad” to just go to an abortion clinic and pray or whatever, but I don’t care. You still don’t need to be there. It’s still pointless. It still doesn’t do anything to improve maternal health outcomes so that pregnant people who desperately want their pregnancies can carry them to term safely and deliver healthy babies. It still doesn’t do anything to end the poverty which leads pregnant people to seek abortions in the first place. It still doesn’t do anything to create universal childcare for pregnant people who can’t take care of multiple children.
The only thing it does do is continue to violate the privacy of my patients and make them uncomfortable as they walk into an already emotional (for many) and difficult situation.
So again, I appreciate you apologizing for the more awful members of your movement, I really do, just don’t really care if what you describe doing instead is not “that bad”. None of it should be happening, because people should be able to access clinics without having to walk through crowds of people who can possibly identify them, etc. etc. etc.
I have a tilted uterus and during my last pregnancy, I lost 6 liters of blood. I almost died. I can’t have this baby. Why don’t they understand that?–
Weeping client talking to me today. They tried to goad her companion into a fist fight so they could call the police and have him arrested, therefore she couldn’t have the procedure.
She was crying and screaming for them to leave her alone. They wouldn’t, and her companion got angry.
I told her that I have no idea why they can’t understand it. My guess is, that they don’t care about you or your partner, only the fetus that could kill you.
She was very upset, so I let her and her companion wait in my car. She thanked me and said “I’m glad you are here. He would have hit that guy if you all had not walked with us”.
She walked into the clinic tear free, but still with anti’s trailing behind her shouting. The escort presence gave her space and a buffer from the harassment.
That is why I escort. That is why I do it.

racism is real - misogynoir is real.
Just to put background on this shit.. .the top picture is of Ethan Couch. According to wikipedia and various news sources he is “a North Texas teenager, who was sentenced to 10 years probation after being convicted of killing four pedestrians and seriously injuring two others while driving drunk. On June 15, 2013 he crashed a pickup truck into pedestrians. He was 16 at the time. In December 2013 he was sentenced to therapy at a long-term, in-patient facility, after his attorneys successfully argued that the teen suffered from affluenza and needed rehabilitation, and not prison.”
The yoga, meditation and horse back riding are some of the amenities they have at the facility that is about $450.000 a year.
The bottom picture is of Cyntoia Brown. She grew up in a home with an abusive drunk father and a drug addicted prostitute mother. She eventually ran away with a friend and started ‘dating” (getting pimped) by older men. She stayed in deplorable conditions. The night of the killing, she just got her ass beat by her drug addicted boyfriend/pimp , when the victim Johnny Allen , a 43 year old sunday school teacher (side eye) who noticed her pain and talked to her. After hearing Cyntoia’s story, seeing her bruises, knowing she was underage he still tried to fuck her. What lead to the murder was Cyntoia thought he was going to kill her and shot him first..
She got no second chances after a long shitty life but in jail now at 25 she is working on her college degree ,still hopeful of seeing the outside world and trying to remain as reflective of her negative choices and be positive from her current position.
This is shit is disgusting, money, race, and class make a world of difference in the eyes of the law…
