Got a Girl Crush On: Katelyn Campbell, a West Virginia high school senior who’s standing up to bullying and slut shaming from her principal. When Katelyn spoke out against abstinence-only education at her school, her principal threatened to call the college she’ll be attending to tell them she has “bad character.”

Despite being threatened, Campbell is not backing down. She hopes that filing this injunction [with the ACLU] will protect her freedom of speech to continue advocating for comprehensive sexual health resources for West Virginia’s youth. “West Virginia has the ninth highest pregnancy rate in the U.S.,” Campbell told the Gazette. “I should be able to be informed in my school what birth control is and how I can get it. With the policy at GW, under [principal] George Aulenbacher, information about birth control and sex education has been suppressed. Our nurse wasn’t allowed to talk about where you can get birth control for free in the city of Charleston.”

And the that college tweeted about how proud they were to have her! Fuck yeah Katelyn and Wellesley! 

This is amazing! Everyone should have the right to express her/his views, and I’m so impressed by Katelyn’s stoicism.

“Pro-life” is not pro life. “Pro-life” is anti choice. Pro-life individuals will have you believe taking away a vagina possessors’ right to choose saves life. It doesn’t. Abortion will happen, legal or illegal, safe or unsafe. Making abortion illegal does not equal more life, it equals more people* dead from unsafe abortions and more unwanted children. That is all.
