That the ELECTED might never form to themselves an interest
    separate from the ELECTORS, prudence will point out the
    propriety of having elections often.

    — Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776

Governor Rick Scott (R-FL) took money from Rape Crisis Centers and gave it to Religious Anti-Choice Organizations


mindbabies:

dirtywhrrrl:

…which are pro-life, Christian based organizations masquerading as medical facilities and use their money and time to push a pro-life, anti-abortion agenda, regardless of the health or desires of the pregnant person.

My head executive director just got this news, and the whole building is fucking livid.

Let me reiterate that for you.

Rick Scott took money from neutral, victim services based Rape Crisis Centers, which provide advocates to accompany to rape kit exams, police proceedings, detective interviews, state attorney’s office proceedings, court dates and medical appointments, who answer a hotline 24/7, day or night if a victim needs help or moral support, who provide crisis intervention 7 days a week, even on holidays…

…and gave it to pregnancy crisis centers, which help you on the contingency that you agree to their religious and moral leanings. How many rape victims do they help? I’m guessing not many, since they cannot become Certified Rape Crisis Centers and have no specialized training in working with the trauma of a sexual assault.

Would you like to guess how much money I make as a victim advocate? Not a lot. Would you like to ask how many raises I’ve had in the almost 5 years I’ve been doing on-call work? None. Would you like to ask how much money we currently have to work with our how much funding we recieved to promote Sexual Assault Awareness Month and provide both a community based and survivor based speak out? If you guess none, you’re correct.

Rick Scott took money from Rape Crisis Centers and gave it to pro-life organizations.

I keep saying it because I can’t believe it’s real.

Rick Scott took money from Rape Crisis Centers and gave it to pro-life organizations.

Please re-blog the this out of this.

I’ve also got some first hand shit on Angela Corey, the State Attorney handling the Trevyon Martin case, if anyone’s interested as well.

I know we’re supposed to be the good folk and not wish ill on others, but fuck this guy colossal douchebag, I sincerely hope he dies in a fire, wide awake and screaming.

Just another reason to avoid Florida like the goddamn plague. Repulsive. If this guy has daughters, I hope they hear about this and give him hell.

If Governor Scott has daughters, let us hope it is not one of them who is brutally raped, and later found dead in a Florida back alley in a pool of her own blood with a coat hanger shoved up her vagina.

BTW - no problem boycotting all things Florida. I’ve been doing so since the panhandle trailer trash elected the Despicable Right-Wing Extremist Rick Scott.
