Well! Perhaps you have not heard of a certain event called Rock Out for Roe? It takes place tonight! In fabulous NYC! You will have the opportunity to win fabulous door prizes! Meet fabulous people, including the lovely Shelby Knox and Steph Herold, the equally lovely Jessica Valenti, bloggers from the Feministing and the Jezebel, and more! And also me. However, since I have no book to give you, my own opportunities to contribute to the fabulous door prizes are slim. If you bring your Tiger Beatdown shirt, I will personally write [BONERS] on it? I will, uhhh… personally tell a mean-spirited knock-knock joke about Keith Olbermann? I know you like those things!
However, this is more than a swank lady-party, my friends. Oh, so much more! For all proceeds will be going to benefit the New York Abortion Access Fund, which gives financial assistance to low-income folks in the NYC area, who can’t afford abortions. Details at the link above. But also, details at the right here!
Starts at 7:00! Bring your $10 or more at the door, so that ladies can have abortions when they need them! It’s very exciting!
And yes, it is the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Which is, if nothing else, a sign that constant and non-stop and fanatical and awful attempts to repeal it have failed thus far! And hopefully, they will in the future. But, if you would like to know why it matters, here is a gallery of lovely and smart people, who will explain. Oh, also, I am there! Again: Hi!
