A call to arms for reproductive and health care rights

A few months ago, I appeared in the debut performance of the TMI Project‘s show What To Expect When You’re Not Expecting; I wrote about that amazing experience here.  Those of you concerned with such matters will no doubt have observed that the issues the show addresses (attempts by the right to obliterate reproductive and health care access) have not magically gone away since then.  Texas, for example, is shutting down Planned Parenthoods under some complete bullshit pseudo-public health loophole they invented, and it’s going to take more than a one woman filibuster by shoe-in-for-badass-of-the-millenium-Wendy-Davis to undo this horrendous fuckwadery.  So what are we going to do about it?

Here’s what we’re going to do about it.  We (the TMI Project) are planning to take this show on the road, and perform What To Expect When You’re Not Expecting in Texas and elsewhere.  But guess what!  As it turns out, travel to Texas isn’t free, and this is where you can help.  I am asking you to contribute to this cause, and if you’re wondering if I mean YOU specifically, yes, I do.  Help us bring this show to Texas, the state that more than any other needs to be smacked upside the head with some raw undeniable truth in the form of devastatingly honest first person narratives on these issues.

Here is the link to donate to this cause.  I am hoping you will do so, and sooner would be better than later.  This is an opportunity to improve radically the dialogue around these issues, allow voices that have traditionally been silenced to be heard, and make sure that the jackasses who are trying to take away our rights and health care access (YOUR rights and health care access) do not succeed.

We will also be performing this show again locally, in Rosendale on October 25th and 26th (same show both nights), so if you missed it in Woodstock in June, you have another chance to see it.

And whether you’re in a position to contribute or not, I hope you will please spread the word to other like-minded individuals who may want to help us.  We shouldn’t have to fight this fight, but given that we do, I want to make damn sure that we win.

Don’t you?
