What. A. Week! While Resident Log Bump is off signing literally the worst executive orders this planet has seen since WWII, I'm trying to find ways to help out regardless of this national tragedy. That's why $5 from each sale will be donated at the end of each month to Planned Parenthood.
Why I'm Donating to Planned Parenthood
If you're a woman, there's a HUGE chance you've been to Planned Parenthood. Whether it was to get birth control, the morning after pill, or an STD check, it's a crucial place for women who don't have access to similar care otherwise. When I went to Planned Parenthood for the first time to get birth control, I was in my mid-twenties, going back to school and working paycheck to paycheck at ***4*** part-time jobs. I also didn't have health insurance at the time because Obamacare didn't exist yet. But Planned Parenthood was a real sista and helped me out with an exam, a check-up, and getting on the pill—for free.
Now that I can afford to pay for health insurance myself and have access to it as a self-employed business gal (Thanks Obama, really), I've been making sure to donate to them whenever I get a chance. I believe so much in the power of women and helping them make their own choices about their reproductive health. This is our fight as half of the world's population. Not 10%. Not 35%. 50% of the ENTIRE WORLD IS US. We deserve respect and the freedom to make our own choices, and I will not stop fighting for us no matter what. — Katie
