My #IGtakeover is at it’s end! I’ve loved my time here in Columbus with Women Have Options. The #reproductivejustice community is truly one of a kind. I’ve never seen a movement so encompassing and devoted towards intersectionality and inclusivity. I no longer feel alone in my abortion journey. I have a whole community openly backing me, my decision, my emotional and physical health, and my future with no questions asked. My experiences in the past months have changed me tenfold. I never thought I’d find myself doing RJ work, but I now can’t imagine not being an advocate for the rest of my life. Thanks for letting me share a little bit about my summer #fundingabortion in #Ohio. 💛

WHOohio

My weekend IG takeover is almost done, but I’d like to give a special thank you to these 3 EXTRAORDINARY people (from left to right: Michelle- WHO case manager, Jordyn-WHO board member, & Steph- WHO executive director). Since the first day of my internship, they’ve went above and beyond to make me feel valued, loved, and included. They leave me in awe everyday with their intelligence, dedication, and perseverance. I loved our summer of jokes, snacks, and abortion 🥰 #reproAF #reproductivejustice #proabortion #studentinternship #fundabortionbuildpower

As much as I’ve enjoyed my summer in Columbus, it hasn’t been easy! It’s been hard being away from my family and friends back in Massachusetts. Being a broke college student sucks. IMPOSTER SYNDROME IS SUFFOCATING. And doing this work can be very emotionally draining. Self-care has been critical to keep myself going these past few months. Some of my self-care has included solo dates to the park, driving around listening to music, and surrounding myself with uplifting people! I’d love to know, what do you do for self-care? 😊 Lexi’s IG Takeover Photo credits: @awaken_authenticity & @theanxietyhealer #selfcare #fundabortionbuildpower #healing #respectyourself

Prior to this year I knew little to none about reproductive rights. It was not until I became pregnant and had to make a choice about my reproductive health that I became aware of how encompassing reproductive justice was. Personally, I struggled/continue to struggle immensely with my abortion experience; However, I can’t think of a better place to navigate my journey than here in Columbus with WHO! The RJ community here is so special to my heart, and has helped me beyond words in such a short amount of time 💓 Lexi’s IG Takeover Photo credit: @janellesilver #fundabortionbuildpower #reproductivejustice #igtakeover #healing #asseenincolumbus

I believe individuals are experts of their own lives- they know what’s best for themselves, their families, and future! And NO ONE is obligated to explain themselves. We need to fully #trustpeople to make the right decisions for their reproductive health, while also giving them the tools to thrive.

It's Lexi again and still in charge of @whoohio's IG! Young people are AMAZING. We’re the next generation of advocates to not only continue the positive work of those before us, but also recognize the gaps that still need to be filled. Empower us to make choices, have a voice, and let our inquiry guide our learning. We know what needs to be done, but we need the resources, tools, and support of our communities. Check out my lovely friend, @urge_org State Coordinator, @wetestify storyteller, and WHO’s board member, @jordynkiera ‘s recent interview with @ifwhenhow on Jordyn’s work and her “shake the table” approach to organizing and empowering young people!

Happy National Intern Day! I, along with the other RRASC interns, are able to do amazing work at amazing organizations— BECAUSE WE ARE PAID. Most young people, especially from marginalized, low-income backgrounds, cannot afford to do unpaid internships. That means there are SO MANY qualified, talented people kept from obtaining valuable work experience and gaining skills one can’t learn in a classroom. Stop giving advantages to already-privileged people who can afford to do free work. Unpaid internships are classist and an elitist exploitation of labor. Pay. Your. Interns.

I got connected with Women Have Options through Hampshire College in Hadley, MA. Hampshire runs a #ReproductiveRights Activist Service Corps Internship Program every summer through their @clppconference program. Since the RRASC program began in 1999, it has offered paid internships for 525 undergraduate students from across the country at 156 host reproductive rights and social justice organizations. CLPP also holds the annual “From Abortion Rights to Social Justice: Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom” conference for students and community activists.

Our ~fearless~ and funny Board Chair, Samantha Sizemore, engaging with the public at the @voicesunitedforwomen rally today. It was amazing to hear each speaker that went up this afternoon. When we unite together and discuss the importance of our Grass Roots Organizations, right to bodily autonomy, and the intersectionality of those who need abortion rights & access across the board, we become stronger and well informed. Ask how you can get involved today! . . . . . . A couple of excerpts from today’s speech: . . . . “At 28 yo, I personally, have never had an abortion. It’s important to know that this doesn’t mean I won’t for some reason need one in the future. Even if I want children one day. Emergencies happen. Not having had an abortion doesn’t mean that you’re disconnected from this movement or basic human rights in any way. It’s still my body, your body, my choice, your choice, my right, your right - and I hate the idea of anyone feeling helpless in regards to their own bodily autonomy. —Always remember that people who have abortions are us: women, non binary, trans men and more- they surround us daily, in school, at work, at home, or in the grocery store. They are our siblings, parents, neighbors, co-workers, and friends. Theirs are stories of youth and middle age, parenting and careers, finances and relationships, hopes and dreams, sadness and relief.” . . . #supportgrassroots #prochoice #intersectionality #abortionrights #abortionaccess #columbusohio #614columbus #nationwide 🌿

Hi y'all! Folks have been asking for shirts to protest in that will go to a good cause and so they can publically support abortion access. So, yesterday we created a t-shirt store in response. All proceeds directly #fundabortion in Ohio. Can you help spread the word (so folks don't buy t-shirts from places like Amazon just looking to make a quick buck off of something they think is popular right now?) https://www.bonfire.com/store/fund-abortion-swag/ #StoptheBans

When someone is incarcerated prior to their trial, their ability to raise their families in safe and healthy conditions is taken from them without due process. Mass incarceration and the system of cash bail systemically makes it impossible for communities, and disproportionately Black women, from accessing reproductive justice. ⚡️Join us and make a gift to support Black mothers who are behind bars because they can't make bail in Columbus!

It's been a tough couple of weeks. Here's a reminder from a local community healer. Stress and anxiety have lots of adverse health effects. Here's one. Take time today to stretch, drink water, and breathe. #wellness #loveyourbody #begentlewithyourself - Lily Kunning, Community Herbalist

whoohio

A community call-in: We've got a whole bunch of new people who've joined us here and we wanted to do a group call-in and reminder about language. Abortion bans don't only directly impact women. As a community, we must take steps to not erase the non-binary folks and non-cis men who can also get pregnant and who need #abortionaccess too. With this said, we know our name is exclusionary of these folks and we are sorry. As an organization, we understand the power in a name. While we have had to delay a potential name change discussion and process to focus on the current crisis, we make sure that we do our best to serve ALL who need access and embrace that in our messaging. Not only women have options. This is one of the challenges of being a 27-year-old organization. With that, we apologize to any NB or trans person who feel erased by our name and ask for grace as we not only grow in size and scope, but also deeper in our values. #callin #abortionisahumanright 📸 by @juniperandpinephoto

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS- YOU DESERVE ACCESS TO ABORTION. This is as true now as it was 27 years ago when Women Have Options - Ohio funded our first patients. Things have changed, but our mission to help YOU get the care you need has stayed the same. Know that we are here to not only fund abortion, but we can help you with travel, overnight housing, translation, connect you with support like abortion doula services and whatever else you need. We've been growing to meet the complex needs of accessing abortion care in Ohio. We're here for you. Need help? Email us at help@womenhaveoptions.org. Can YOU help others? We need more folks to join us to drive patients, or offer overnight housing, and operate our hotline. We will be holding trainings around the state soon. Sign up to volunteer at womenhaveoptions.org/volunteer Have other ideas about how you can help? Let us know! This is all hands on deck! #abortionisahumanright #fundabortionbuildpower
