We are what we write.

I spent the majority of my free time last winter writing about emergency contraception. How important it is that it is accessible. Thank god it's accessible to me, and that I'd done enough research to know how to get it quickly.

I didn't have to go to an emergency room, or hunt down a non-catholic physician in Eastern Massachusetts (Which should be called O'Massachusetts, sometimes).

I knew of place to get it. The internet. There is a doctor, a man named Matthew Wise, who has done more to ensure the accessibility of emergency contraception than Planned Parenthood, and he's done it at his own risk. He runs a website, where he is able to consult with patients and prescribe emergency contraception seven days a week.

Bless you, Matthew Wise.

Fuck you, Durex.
