On Roe, the NAF, and Our Actionable Steps Forward

Like many of you, we have been heavy with grief and frustration at the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs. In a lot of moments, that grief and that frustration has felt overwhelming and paralyzing. It feels fresh and raw and confused, full of anxieties about other rights at risk and rage at a decision that feels like a raw attack on our equality and personhood. A decision that feels that way because that’s what it is.

But beyond that grief, there is so much work to do, and much of it cannot wait. Many, many people are actively in need of abortion care and have been left in the lurch by Friday’s ruling and the immediate changes in many states’ laws. Many more will need help accessing care in states where abortion remains legal but is challenging to access. The National Network of Abortion Funds’ Collective Power Fund gets resources directly to those most in need, helping pay for abortion care for pregnant people who cannot afford to do so, and providing logistical and financial assistance with travel, childcare, and language services to overcome barriers to access to care. There is so much to do in the days and weeks ahead, in working to protect voting rights, to advocate for legislative solutions at the state and national level, to organize for state-level elections that would give us a chance at fighting partisan gerrymandering, and so much more, but we’re starting here, by helping get money and resources to people in urgent need, right now. As a small step in the right direction, we’ll be donating 20% of our sales to the CPF over the next week, and matching those donations 2:1. If you’re moved to join us but yarn isn’t on your list right now, please click the link in our bio to contribute directly to NAF and the CPF through the fundraiser we’re hosting on Instagram. 

Hard days are ahead for all of us, but that difficulty will not be evenly distributed, and it will fall hardest on those least able to bear it. We firmly believe that it is on those of us who can to find our way out of the morass and take concrete steps to do the next right thing, and we hope you’ll join us.

With love, 
Sloane + Meghan

    I just got my Ex boyfriend back through the help of a real spell caster Dr.Excellent. My boyfriend left me and i was devastated. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant for him. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my sister and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called Dr.Excellent, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 28hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 28 hours later my boyfriend called me. It was so surprising, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted us to come back together. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to Dr.Excellent. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your boyfriend moved to another girl, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Excellent for help now..Here his contact.
