Fresh Friday Finds

1. CROW Clothing

Forest Ethics released a report this week citing that “emissions generated by junk mail is equivalent to the emissions of more than 9 million cars, or if you prefer, 2.5 million cars idling 24 hours a day for 7 days a week.”

…but the Bush Administration is quietly trying to redefine “abortion” to include birth control. The Houston Chronicle says this could wipe out dozens of state laws that protect women’s reproductive freedom and protect rape victims. This “rule change” doesn’t need congressional approval.

    According to the pro-choice Fertility Awareness Network, the BC pill isn’t vegan. The woman who took my call (two or three years ago) said that the best way to guarantee no animals are harmed, exploited, or used in your BC product is to utilize natural fertility awareness. This was backed up by a presentation done by the Doohickey Project, a radical femme reproductive collective, at a presentation I attended in the fall of 2006.
