- Crisis Pregnancy Center Ads are Back - And more Deceptive Than Ever, Talking Points Memo, July 21
Last time we checked, lying to women isn’t medical care.
Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) pose as legitimate reproductive health centers. They have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose. They often advertise as if they provide abortion services, drawing people in by promising free reproductive health services, including free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and options counseling.(via coolification)
CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTERS ARE THE FUCKING WORST
Now I’m wondering… (and please bear with me…)
In HAZMAT response, there is the concept of the “Awareness-Level Responder”. You get the crash course in recognizing the signs that hazardous materials may have been spilled, some basic steps you can take to respond to the spill without endangering yourself, how to get in touch with more highly-trained responders, and how to do some basic tasks under the supervision of those responders. Basically stuff you can do without risking actually coming in contact with the hazardous substance.
Thinking about the future of hunting, it occurred to me that even if hunting stays underground, a more ‘formalized’ hunter culture could really benefit from the existence of a network of “awareness-level” law enforcement officers. They know how to recognize monster attacks. They know better than to directly engage with the monster on their own. They know how to get in touch with hunters when they come across signs of a monster presence, and can perform support tasks such as background checks, finding and/or losing records, sneaking people into and/or out of the morgue, and refraining from arresting the hunters.
It dawned on me that this ‘network’ kind of exists, with the main problem being that it has exactly one law enforcement officer in it: Jody Mills. But she’s going to be working on a case with Donna Hanscum, and that makes me wonder if the start of developing a network like this is going to be either part of the setup for or the outcome of their “buddy cop adventure”…
