Inspiring pro choice action: Naked at UBC

It's been a while since I was this inspired. UBC student Justine Davidson sat naked in front of an anti-choice fetus porn protest held on campus on March 8, which happens to be International Women's Day. Read about it in her own words at http://nakedubc.blogspot.ca/2012/03/why-hell-did-that-woman-take-her.html

She starts her post with the following quotation from Helene Cixous, "Censor your body and you censor breath and speech at the same time.”

As a former Women's Studies teacher, I can't express how happy this makes me. The way this young woman wove theory and practice together in this action blows my mind. And UBC is punishing her. This is unacceptable. Please read her blog, help her out. Every woman who cares about choice in Canada, and every man too, owes her this right now.
The Abortion Monologues is now an e-book. Look for it here on Smashwords.
