YESSS this is the best thingsorganizedneatly post ever! mata-matahari
(Live every day like the ice cream store is closing.)
Probably the most accurate thing ever.
For over a year, photographer Pierre-Elie de Pibrac was embedded with the ballet company of the legendary Paris Opera, where he compiled a series of long exposure shots named “Catharsis.”
Though you can’t always make out individual figures, the vibrant costumes combined with the dancers’ movements create these lovely abstract photos.
Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.
I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.
and in the meantime everyone should read PRO: Reclaiming Abortion Rights by Katha Pollitt - here’s a great review of it.
