What are we planning to do?
collective sexual abstinence from men.
Honestly I have zero desire to have sex with men right now. Just thinking about all the scrotes who complain about condoms makes me want to scream with unbridled, pure rage.
@FancyFascinator This. And these same men will slut shame women and crap on single moms, as if none of the women were coerced or forced into having unprotected sex.
I agree, all women in the U.S. should go on a sex strike (and work strike)
Remember that we all have more power than we think. Women are conditioned to not see the power that we have. We are supposed to go along to get along.
Where you spend your time, attention and money has big impacts on society.
Support women-owned businesses, especially minority women-owned businesses. Buy fewer (or no) products that reinforce the patriarchy (makeup, hair removal, etc) and use the money saved to donate to DV shelter, rape crisis center or an abortion clinic.
What kind of men are you spending time with? Cut out anyone who doesn't *vocally* support women's rights/abortion rights. We need to hear their voices, and their votes better back up their words. Don't reward non-supportive men with your time or your body.
Get ahead at work to make more money. Implement a savings plan. Money is power.
Help political campaigns for candidates that will *codify* abortion rights into law.
Do not obey in advance. Be ungovernable.
(disclaimer: this doesn't mean committing crimes, lol)
Hear, hear. We have always had the power. Exercise that power!
Also, if we didn't already know the pervasive medical mysoginy in women's healthcare SPECIFICALLY our reproductive healthcare -now's a great time to get back to researching and managing your health

Pickmes will agree outwardly and secretly get abortions, feminists will make a lot of references to Handmaid's tale, left wing women will protest with signs, Quiverful women will continue churning out babies
Don't forget that there are women who have bombed, or made attempts to bomb, clinics even though they have had abortions themselves!
A decade ago I was one of many protestors counter-protesting Operation Rescue (anyone remember those guys?). I stood on the clinic's property to create a barrier. A pickme who attempted to totally bomb a clinic stood several feet from us. I cannot remember her name at the moment. I do remember it was Dr. Tiller's (RIP) colleague's clinic.
What will FDSers do?
At one protest I went to a man dressed in a Jesuit priest's outfit came over to a woman who helped me block a clinic and kicked her NOW sign. We both reported it to the police at the protest. Our answer?...crickets.
This is horrible. I feel sorry for any of you that live in a red state.
I moved to a red state for a job several years ago and now I’m moving out of it. Fuck that.
Honestly, I feel bad for all American women. You are under attack from both sides. Women's bodies on the one side, and women's rights, information availability and safe spaces on the other.
We have a saying in my country. "Plague and cholera". It's a darkly semi-humorous way of referring to a situation where your two options are not great. Yes, one has a choice. But the choice is between two awful things, and one would rather not have either result.
@Stellata Something tells me sterilization rates will sky rocket, it's like these pro-death morons want me to get it done. I'm terrified for me and other women and I'm not even based in the US (I just know that this mess will crawl it's slimly way out of US borders), I feel a sense of looming suffocating dread. "Get it done before it's too late". Thinking about it is causing me to panic, and trying not to stress is stressing me out even more! I also feel so ashamed, ashamed towards the pro-death women who think they're are going to be the exception is this fiasco. Fuck them all, fuck the lot of them.
It would be a dream for women as a whole to abstain from men. But talking to other women I realized they don't understand men genuinely hate women.
As I was telling them they would say it's too harsh. And get offended for their man's low level behavior.
Till women realize men hate women, it seems it will be difficult for change.
And menstrual extraction is great for period pain and any issues with menses
And if you want to go the med route:
Growing up I've always wondered "hey, can't we just get a spoon or something and get that shit out instead of waiting several days for all the blood to leak out?" Damn, so it does exist. I feel scammed lol.
If anyone wants to teach me how to do abortions I'm down 🤷♀️
Coathangers, pennyroyal tea if popular culture is anything to go by
Getchu a course on menstrual extraction 💅
time to leave the US ? you can come to europe
If it were up to me, I would welcome American women as political refugees.
Effective Historical Abortifacients that can be grown at home or sourced
Keep in mind that abortifacient plants can be very dangerous. They are poisonous, that is what causes the abortion. People can die this way if they have health issues or get the dose wrong. And dosing of plants is very difficult, since compound amounts can vary enormously between plants due to growth conditions, weather, genes etc. It is not safe, and I wouldn't recommend using them.
True, plantwise contraceptive plants are safer than abortifacients. And modern medicine is FAR better by comparison
I think a mega thread is in order. Mods?
[@Astria] sorry should’ve tagged. On mobile so I can’t edit.
For those not wanting to leave the US, we need to connect with other like minded women.
I've been listening to some of the legislators on their possible short and long term solutions. Federal land use for abortion clinics. Long term is to codify Roe v Wade. I also believe an updated ERA needs to be put through.
Australian women on here remember the 2021 March4Justice. It was quite effective at organising many women across Australia. This was one of the grass root catalyst that enabled to get our inept sexist racist PM out.
Voting in November is critical. Volunteer for a campaign. Talk to as many people as you can to get them to register to vote and vote.
Fight like your life depends on it.
As of now I’m aware of the auntieNetwork on reddit and donating to planned parenthood as ways to help others in need. Please share other networks that you recommend for us to help other women, money-wise. The more we know and can share the better.
And this is just the beginning....
Yep, every facet of women's independence will the attacked. SCOTUS has already shown that their arguments don't need to be better than some idiot on any social media site.
