How did you make the tubes curve?  I know there was some talk on the lj about not using anything w/ wire (because of problems w/ mailing and xraying I think) so I just left mine floppy.  It does not look good at all really

I've got to make another and get them in the mail soon

I used some jewelry wire I had around for the fallopian tubes - it worked fine to keep them perky Smiley

I don't think you'll have any trouble mailing something with wire or pipe cleaners in it...People mail things with metal in them alll the time.

When are those due? Because if it's sometime at the end of the month, I might just have to make one and send it due to the fact it embodies three of my favorite things, knitting, feminism, and activism.

while everyone's at it, you might consider making an extra and mailing it to one of the addresses that appears on this page: http://www.legis.state.wi.us/assembly/asm59/asm59.html. that is the website of wisconsin's state representative daniel r. lemahieu, who is at this time attempting to pass a bill that would ban the university of wisconsin's student health center from dispensing, advertising, or prescribing birth control (including emergency contraceptives to rape victims, apparently, but i've read different things about this) because it "encourages female promiscuity".

Ugh, what a jerk. Are you a student there? I bet the feminist groups have come up with some great activism ideas.

no, i'm still in high school, and i live in new jersey, so i guess you could say i have no real connection to it, except that i'm a woman and that law would be very anti-woman, and that in itself is enough reason to get involved.

i read about it in the onion, haha. a much more informative newspaper than one would think Wink

Well, this could be very timely - I just heard that Sandra Day O'Connor is stepping down. The Supreme Court is in great danger of becoming very conservative. So yeah, say goodbye to reproductive freedom Sad

Sandra Day O'Connor is stepping down.

Well crap, I might as well start figuring out what country to move to now.  Any news on Renquist?

I don't know if any number of wombs can save us now ladies. Sad

I'm moving to the Netherlands (It's just a coincedence that our rights are diminishing as I leave - it's not really the reason, my SO is Dutch)
However, I've found it very interesting that we americans are taught from the beginning that the US is free.  And we're given the impression that Americans have the MOST personal freedoms and no other countries come close . . .

Well, Canada and Spain seem to have legalized same sex marriage, and the UK is about to.  I'm not sure it ever occured to the Dutch to make it illegal.  There are also Dutch organizations that send out boats to countries where abortion is illegal and perform them in International waters.

first the election, and now the supreme court . . .  it's a sad sad time.


An eye for and eye leaves the whole world blind.

I am still in shock. I think I may cry now.
