ALRANZ (and the Prochoice Highway) are now on Givealittle, the Telecom Foundation funded giving site that makes it a bit easier to donate, if you have a credit card that is. Through 2013, money donated to ALRANZ via Givealittle will go to support the Highway. (If you want to direct your donation elsewhere, just let ALRANZ know.)
If you prefer a cheque or Internet banking, details are here.

POSTAGE: If posting the Tees/postage costs are a problem, just let us know and we’ll see if we can help.
Can you help us? We’re looking for good quality plain Tees for our recycled Tees project. The fine people at Verboom will be helping us by printing up the Tees for a good rate, once we hit the magic number of 50 plain Tees.

If you follow the reproductive rights debate in the United States even a little bit, you’ll be familiar with the relentless tide of legislation aimed at cracking down not just on access to abortion, but contraception, sex education and the rights of those who are pregnant.

The website RH Reality Check is one of the best sites around for keeping up to date with the bad news, and it can get a bit depressing. Two names you’ll see frequently there are those of Robin Marty, the site’s senior political reporter, and Jessica Mason Pieklo, RHRC’s senior legal analyst, writer and adjunct law professor in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Marty and Pieklo are also the authors of a new book that collects and analyses all that bad news titled Crow After Roe: How ‘Separate but Equal’ Has Become the New Standard in Women’s Health and How We Can Change That.
The Prochoice Highway is working on a recycled Tees project, and we’re looking at coming up with a couple of bold designs to add to the standard Highway Tee (essentially a variation of this Web site’s banner). We’d welcome ideas for choice-y Tee slogans. Send your ideas to the Highway via the form below, visit ALRANZ’s FB page or Tweet them via @alranztweets.
Some pix from the stall at the Women’s Studies Association Conference (26-28 April, Wellington). If you want to order stuff you see on the stand (or have reproductive rights/justice stuff to donate), please contact us.

Some of the historic, unusual, mysterious material being collected for the Highway. We weren’t too sure about Condoman, and curious what others think. He, along with Lubelicious, is part of a safe sex campaign primarily in Queensland, Aust.
The Prochoice Highway officially kicks off on May Day in Wellington, with the launch of Fighting to Choose: The Abortion Rights Struggle in New Zealand. But there are a few other events coming up at the end of April, beginning of May. Visit the Follow the Highway page for more details.
