As I said before - controlling women’s sexuality is the entire reason the pro-life movement exists.
You have to, have to, HAVE TO read this Esquire piece about Dr. Willie Parker. He flies around the country to perform abortions in underserved places like Mississippi, which only have one clinic left. The most powerful part is this quote at the end:
He thought about his mother and sisters and the grandmother who died in childbirth and began to read widely in the literature of civil rights and feminism. Eventually he came across the concept of “reproductive justice,” developed by black feminists who argued that the best way to raise women out of poverty is to give them control of their reproductive decisions. Finally, he had his “come to Jesus” moment and the bell rang. This would be his civil-rights struggle. He would serve women in their darkest moment of need. “The protesters say they’re opposed to abortion because they’re Christian,” Parker says. “It’s hard for them to accept that I do abortions because I’m a Christian.”
Seriously, read it.

On a quick scan through of this, there are some things I want to say.Pro-life people are not all religious. Pro-life people, even if considered religious because they believe in a God are not all religiously dogmatic, un-empathetic, or people of blind faith. Indeed many aren’t.Pro-life people are not all against women having sex. They are against killing the LIFE that is created when a women has sex.Pro-life people may be against both abortion and contraceptive but when it comes to a woman’s choice, abstinence in a relationship (especially when one knows they don’t want a child), is also a thing. Also, pro-life people are not all arrogant, obnoxious, heretic and dogmatic religious fanatics though they are presented as such (and unfortunately sometimes are). They are simply people who don’t want to see the potential of a life, a living human being who could have a big impact on the lives of many others when it matures, to be thrown away. And THAT, not fighting women’s sexuality, is the main premise of most (I understand I can’t speak for all) pro-life peoples’ feelings towards abortion.Or at least this is certainly what I have seen from my experience in the matter.

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves." 
(Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)

Amen.

"This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have."

In 1944 a children’s book club sent a volume about penguins to a 10-year-old girl, enclosing a card seeking her opinion.

She wrote, “This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”

American diplomat Hugh Gibson called it the finest piece of literary criticism he had ever read.

US COLLEGES. 

for real though.

forreals

American higher education baffles me. The best universities in my country are completely free, and even the private ones are not so expensive that it’d force someone to incur in debt.

Could someone tell me how much US students pay to attend college? In Canada, colleges tend to be 3-5K a year, and universities are 5-7K.

Most schools are between 40-60K.  Some (like NYU and a few others) are more.
And no.  That’s not a typo.

They are 40-60k yearly, not in total. (I am talking about Ivy leagues.)The second tier schools are generally 30-40k a year.  Even state colleges end up being around 120k by the end of your career.

are oranges named oranges because oranges are orange or is orange called orange because oranges are orange

The colour was named after the fruit. Before that, people would just use the colour red to describe something that we consider orange now. It’s why we call gingers red-heads and why robins are red breasted, when really they’re an orange colour.

"nerd" and"loser" were like hard hitting insults in the early 2000’s and now they are used as affectionate terms we have truly come full circle

Sorry, but no, we did a 180. A full circle would mean we went back to them as insults
