Tech Updates for Feminist Nerds

The May Madness continues at the clinic. It sometimes seems ok, like when it's 8:30 and there's no protesters yet, but then they'll all come out at once and start screeching and carrying on. Yesterday Pink Hat went wild at one particular young woman, telling her "They're after your baby!" and "I can tell you don't want to do this!". God she's awful. I wonder how difficult it is for them to justify making people cry by yelling at them?

Inside the clinic, one of the patients was suffering some severe nausea as a symptom of the pregnancy, and spent most of her waiting time throwing up. I felt really bad for her. I can't even imagine suffering through that for nine whole months. Thank goodness we have SOME choice/access here.

I wonder if you noticed that I made a couple additions to my "Pedgehog Reads..." section? The first is the NB Rebelles blog. If you are at all interested, it informs people of upcoming events (not just NB Rebelles stuff, and not just Fredericton!), and it also has links to our merchandise for sale and so on. I could go on, but I don't want this to be an ad for NB Rebelles. Just check out the website and you'll get the idea.

The second addition is Confabulous, a great feminist blog based in Canada. I love a lot of feminist blogs, most notably Feministing, but I get a little sad that there's not much Canadian content. Confabulous is Canadian, and feminist, and thus it is awesome.

And, while I'm plugging stuff, I will let you know that you can follow me, NB Rebelles, and ARCC on Twitter. And you should.

The antis are holding their annual March for Life tomorrow. It should be interesting, as always. I always like to see which elected representatives are actively working against women's rights in New Brunswick.

Thanks for the plug for Confabulous! We love Anti-Choice is Anti-Awesome, too--it's definitely it a must read for us each week. Thanks for all you do, P!
