Not having to take 5 billion notes or direct people around means that things are coming together for the show, right?
If you wanna be my roomate you gotta be weird but not too weird
sitting in the office and can’t help but think…. this would make a good little nursery.
someone stop me.
Anyone who doesn’t like musicals because “no one just starts singing in dancing all of a sudden in real life” has clearly never visited my house
I wonder what it would be like to have a supportive and loving and caring set of parents instead of the assholes I got stuck with.
I wonder what it would be like to have a grandfather who doesn’t treat me like an idiot when I call him for advice about the house we bought.
I wonder what it would be like to not get treated like an outcast by my family.
and when i’m not doing the political thing, i’m sleeping. no word of a lie.
or at rehearsal.
or the hospital.
i haven’t had time for tumblr (gasp) because i’m on the committee for reproductive justice in NB that’s meeting this week, and getting ready for the rally, and doing media interviews and apparently people care what I think and what i have to say, so yeah.
it’s a thing.
I stand in solidarity with New Brunswick and PEI feminists fighting for access to the reproductive health care that they should be entitled to under Canadian law. Quite simply, the stance of the New Brunswick and Canadian governments is putting lives at risk in Atlantic Canada. For more, see my blog post.
Ensure Abortion Access in New Brunswick: Call to Action
On Thursday April 10, 2014, the Morgentaler Clinic in Fredericton announced that they will be closing in July due to a lack of funding. First opened in June 1994, the clinic provides support and abortion services to the women of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
Abortion is legal in Canada, and should be covered by NB Medicare in all cases.
Access to abortion is guaranteed by the CanadianCharter of Rights and Freedoms and a woman’s right to live free of “cruel and unusual punishment” (as decided in Supreme Court of Canada ruling R. v. Morgentaler,  1 S.C.R. 30.)
Further, the Canada Health Act R.S.C., 1985, c. C-6 requires that medically necessary services performed by a physician be provincially funded.
New Brunswick women must obtain a referral from two physicians in order to qualify for a provincially funded abortion (at one of two hospitals). Women unable to obtain the enforced double approval must find an alternate method to terminate a pregnancy.
What we are asking for:
POLICY CHANGE: a repeal of Regulation 84-20, Schedule 2 (a.1) of the Medical Services Payment Act which states “abortion [must be] performed by a specialist in the field of obstetrics and gynecology in a hospital facility approved by the jurisdiction in which the hospital facility is located and two medical practitioners certify in writing that the abortion was medically required”.
BUDGET CHANGE: guaranteed medical coverage for abortions services provided at the Morgentaler clinic.
