“Imagine if abortion and birth control were available to all women at all times without stigma or apology”

“Imagine if everyone learned the science surrounding women’s biology – as well as science and the scientific method more broadly – so that never again could so-called ‘holy men’ prey on people’s ignorance and heap the weight of tradition, the shackles of forced motherhood and the suffocation of shame on women for exercising these most fundamental rights.”

“It is not just a dream – it is possible – and it is urgently crying out to be done.”  (From A Declaration: For Women’s Liberation and the Emancipation of All Humanity, Revolution #158)
