Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
this is it. this is Captain America: The Winter Soldier summed up
This is so perfect that I laughed and choked on my soda.
Pansexualfacts has begun to take over the pansexual Google search, but the results are still incredibly negative.
Everyone should search ‘pansexuals are omnipotent’ at least once on Google in order to make it show up in the Google auto-complete.
nonbinary people who are okay with gendered pronouns/names are still nonbinary and if a nonbinary person tells you they’re okay with gendered pronouns then it’s really not your place to say that their gender identity is less valid because of that, even if you yourself are nonbinary. Gender is different for everyone and there’s no “valid way” to be a certain gender the only validation you need is your own.

A little something for all “Snape was a nice dude who was just misunderstood” people to remember (via theresavoidinmypolaroid)
Yes, yes and yes. The full implications of this scene escaped me the first time I read it—hey, I was a kid—but as I got older I realized: this isn’t just Snape being a dick. While it’s already been made obvious in the way he treats Harry and Neville, this scene cements the fact that Snape abuses his students. Any other teacher would love to have a student like Hermione, but Snape has no qualms about being openly racist towards her. And now, with the emotional maturity of a six-year-old, he shows that he also has no qualms about telling an already-sensitive fourteen-year-old girl that he a) doesn’t give a shit that she’s just been jinxed and b) thinks she looks deformed.
You. Son. Of. A. Bitch.
"But he had an abusive father," you bleat, "and he was bullied at school." I do concur. Yes, from what little we know of him Tobias Snape (way to steal the name of my favorite Animorph) was indeed abusive; and we’ve all seen how he was treated at school. HOWEVER, this does not give Snape the right to act the way he does. Yeah, he’s gone through some serious shit, but so has Hermione. Let me talk about Hermione.
It’s explicitly stated that everyone in Hermione’s class has called her a know-it-all at least once, and I doubt that’s a new thing. If we were to get a glimpse of Hermione Granger pre-Hogwarts, we would probably see a friendless girl that everyone hated for her know-it-allness. Hogwarts was a chance for her to start anew, but almost as soon as she arrived she found herself in the same situation, only this time she was bullied for her blood status. All she ever had was her brain. Eventually she found herself some friends, and even then her friendship with Ron could be very tenuous.
Enter looks. Hermione is not introduced as being especially attractive: she has terribly bushy hair and oversized teeth (picture a very bossy squirrel). At one point she tells Harry that she’s been wanting to magically shrink her teeth for ages, but her parents want her to continue wearing braces, and if anyone in history has ever looked good in braces, I haven’t heard about it. She knows how she looks. So this is the state of affairs: everyone thinks she’s annoying; she looks like a rodent; she’s treated as an inferior being just because her parents are Muggles. She knows that she’s smart, but she also knows that this puts her apart from everyone else. Her self-esteem must be on a level with Goyle’s intelligence.
And then comes the above quote, and this time it isn’t just another student harassing her. This time it’s a teacher—and keep in mind, Hermione’s the kind of person who sees teachers as demigods—this time it’s a teacher being an asshole to her, and that’s worse than being picked on by the whole school combined.
Fuck you, Snape. Fuck you.
