This isn't art, but this is definitely important information that has to do with your vagina and mine:
"Anti-contraception action is on the rise. On June 7, anti-woman forces will stage a national protest against birth control and NOW will be there to counter their campaign of misinformation and lies. Here is what the American Life League and the the "Pill Kills" campaign is saying:
"Because the pill weakens the immune system, it can cause bacterial infections and can make a woman more susceptible to the AIDS virus."
"...the most popular form of birth control, the pill, can kill innocent preborn children. If there is a chance that human beings are going to be murdered, I am going to do everything in my power to help prevent that from happening."
"[T]he condom's biggest flaw is that those using it to prevent the conception of another human being are offending God." It continues, "furthermore, each and every act of marital intercourse must be both unitive and open to procreation. Any action, including condom use, which has as its purpose to render procreation impossible is intrinsically evil."

The NOW National Action Center is calling on you to mobilize a local protest to tell the truth and protect birth control."

If you are from Colorado, this one effects you directly:
"Anti-Abortion Ballot Measure Petition Submitted in Colorado
Anti-abortion groups seeking to place a so-called "personhood initiative" on the November state ballot in Colorado submitted 131,245 signatures this week, well over the 76,000 signatures required to place the measure on the ballot. This "personhood initiative" declares that a fertilized egg is a "person" who enjoys "inalienable rights, equality of justice, and due process of the law." The measure would threaten not only abortion itself, but IUDs, emergency contraception, in vitro fertilization clinics, and stem cell research.
The Colorado Secretary of State has 30 days to validate the signatures, according to the Denver Post. Colorado voters rejected an anti-abortion initiative in 2000 that would have required a 24-hour waiting periods before a woman could obtain an abortion, and a ban on late-term abortions failed to gather signatures to qualify in 2006, reports the Associated Press.
Similar measures were recently pushed by anti-abortion groups in several states. The measures failed in Georgia and Oregon, but the petition drive is still underway in Mississippi and Montana, according to the Associated Press."
I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of the religious right trying to take away my control over my own damn body. I'm sick of hearing that you're a sinner if you use birth control, a condom or have an abortion. I'm sick and tired of the amount of control these people have in our country!!
