The Amish do not carry health insurance. The government respects their principles. Christian Scientists want to heal by prayer alone, and the new health care reform law respects that. Quakers and others object to killing even in wartime, and the government respects that principle for conscientious objectors. By its decision, the Obama administration has failed to show the same respect for the consciences of Catholics and others who object to treating pregnancy as a disease. —

Paddy Johnson: Occupy Museums! Speaking out in front of the Cannons -
The game is up: we see through the pyramid schemes of the temples of cultural elitism controlled by the 1%. No longer will we, the artists of the 99%, allow ourselves to be tricked into accepting a corrupt hierarchical system based on false scarcity and propaganda concerning absurd elevation…

Life insurance is something that you pay a premium for and, if you have an accident, your family receives money to recoup costs. An abortion rider would be something you pay for in order to, if you have an unwanted or nonviable pregnancy, terminate the pregnancy without it costing even more than if you didn’t have the coverage in the first place.
Now, taking just a moment to look at the overall picture of what is being discussed, it needs to be said clearly. A Republican just suggested a woman should have to “plan ahead” and obtain insurance in case she is raped. She should have a plan ready in case she is raped. I cannot repeat that enough - a Republican lawmaker believes that women should be planning for a future in which she is raped, just in case.
Who says there isn’t a war on women? — Robin Marty, at Care2.com, responding to a Kansas lawmaker’s assertion that getting pregnant from rape is as inconvenient as a spare tire and an event for which women should carry insurance. (via cognitivedissonance)

This is my niece Cailyn, she’s three years old and was recently diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) . This is a very rare form of tumor diagnosed in only 200 children a year in the united states. The tumor is sitting on her brain stem and is inoperable. She just finished her first round of radiation, but other wise there is not much else the doctors can do. UNLESS she gets to take part in an experimental treatment in NY. My brother is in the Navy, and their insurance will not cover the cost.
I am asking that my followers help me out with a signal boost for Cailyn, whether it be for prayers or donating to her fund to help her recieve treatment. The average length of survival with this type of cancer is 9 months, with about 30% making it a year, and less than 10% making it 2 years.
You can donate to her fund by following this link, where you can also read more about her illness: Cailyn’s Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation
Everyone, I know this kid’s aunt. This is legitimate.
I need your help. Please, spread the word, and if you can, donate to her foundation. Help save a kid’s life.
I know I don’t usually do things like this, I can vouch for both fuckyeahmedicalstuff and Emily (who’s story is in the post below) and they both deserve your help. <3
