alike: 5909 "I decided that never again would there be a pregnant woman in Auschwitz." patron-saint-of-smart-asses: everybody-look-right: washingtonstateconservative: ctrlgeek: webbgirl34: thebigsisteryouneveraskedfor: 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. Yeah… she became a gynecologist and was extremely pro-life after she got out of the camps. In an interview with Nadine Brozan for the New York Times in 1982, Dr. Perl recalled her initial experiences with Dr. Mengele’s “cure” for pregnancy in Auschwitz. ”Dr. Mengele told me that it was my duty to report every pregnant woman to him,” Dr. Perl said. ”He said that they would go to another camp for better nutrition, even for milk. So women began to run directly to him, telling him, ‘I am pregnant.’ I learned that they were all taken to the research block to be used as guinea pigs, and then two lives would be thrown into the crematorium. I decided that never again would there be a pregnant woman in Auschwitz.” Let’s analyze the situation: mother and child alike were both going to be killed anyway if the pregnancy was discovered. Leaving wasn’t an option. Freedom was nonexistent, and the perspectives of all involved were colored by living in hell on earth.   After the war, she dedicated her life to Holocaust remembrance, infertility treatment, and delivering babies – not destroying them. The New York Times quotes her as saying, “No one will ever know what it meant to me to destroy those babies, but if I had not done it, both mother and child would have been cruelly murdered.” Perl never pretended they weren’t babies, that their lives didn’t matter, or that their deaths weren’t cruel. Holy crap. I literally got a ton of shit a few months ago for saying that maybe, just maybe, Perl’s actions don’t justify abortion as a whole. Well, it goes to show that I should’ve done more research, to find out  that Perl herself doesn’t pretend that was she did was right, or that it justifies abortion now. There was another woman, a midwife, who was devout Catholic and helped to care for pregnant women and hide the babies, and continued her work in midwifery after the war. Last I heard she was in the canonization process in the Catholic Church. Fucking THANK YOU I’m so tired of pro-choicers using her as a “gotcha”. She had to do a terrible thing in a terrible circumstance. That has literally no relation to first world abortion legislation today.

alike: Kayla, Aug 15, 9:06 AM PDT Hello Jacob, Thank you for reaching out to Lush Cosmetics! It is always wonderful to hear from customers - humans and vampires alike! I apologize if our use of garlic in the Cosmetic Warrior face mask gives you the wrong impression. We use garlic for its deep cleansing nature to help break down dirt and oil on the skin, leaving you feeling fresh. I completely understand it's not the ingredient most vampires should be reaching for We've always been an inclusive company and believe we should celebrate our differences! Even though vampires are by nature, dead, that doesn't mean their skin needs to reflect that! Perhaps they'd love our Scared Truth face mask which is made with fresh papaya to help get r skin glowing and looking well, alive!We even add in honey, and soya yogurt to soften and hydrate the skin. Just because you are immortal, doesn't mean you should have skin that reflects your actual age! While we may not see eye to eye with your diet, we can definitely help keep your skin from sucking (get it?). We know that vampires can sometimes get a bad reputation and that's stressful. Why not relax with one of our Twilight bath bombs? It is made with vampire friendly lavender essential oil and filled with sparkles! Vampires like sparkles, right? Kind regards, Your friends at Lush another-walter: okay so, me and a friend were talking about lush and they saw that one of their facemasks contained garlic as the main ingredient and we started to wonder if lush had like, something against vampires or something so i sent an email to lush askin if they r pro-vampire and they actually replied back lmao

alike: Wrist Exerc Cheat-Sheet This is an advice I want to give everyone in the Splatoon Community (and also gamers, programmers and artists alike): To prevent weakness, soreness or even injury make sure to exercise your hands and wrists properly before playing! This will only take a quick minute or two but could make a huge difference and helps keeping your hands and wrists healthy and flexible. Sad Italian! Splatted Salt Shaker! Vou can use your second hand for additional stretching! gtop! Zombies! Flop-Flop! Defeat? Squeeze! Do Squids have fingernails? |These exercises should not be done by people with inflammation or serious joint damage unless recommended by a healthcare professional This sheet was illustrated by @CaptainHanyuu. Special thanks to Burnburnss and Kurage-Splatoon! jumpingjacktrash: blarghnessrawr: jvk-illustrations: I drew a quick chart about good wrist and finger exercise before playing Splatoon (or engaging in any other intense activity such as but not limited to gaming in general, programming, drawing, computer work etc.)As with all stretching exercise, these should only be done in moderate speed. You only want to loosen up, not break your hands!!… and it kinda exploded on twitter haha This is a good thing to have explode anywhere. I did some of these and my wrist felt a ton better. I do a lot of typing and repetitive motions at work (need to do more drawing) but my right wrist is always JACKED. This is such a cute and great guide for exercises all in one place! i write my first drafts longhand with a fountain pen. great for creativity (can’t backspace with a pen, and colorful ink makes everything better!) but hard on the hand. i’ve been doing some things sort of like this but it’s nice to have a reference sheet. i bet these would be good for avoiding knitting cramps too.
