My baby boy was JUST as alive and worthy of the right to live when he was inside my womb as the day he was born. •
From the moment of conception, he had everything needed (his own, distinct, genetic code) to form his body. •
At just 21 days his heart started beating AND pumping blood throughout his body.❤️
Let’s stand together for these sweet babies who need someone to speak up for them. Their lives are precious. Please support Hope Outfitters during this campaign—it’s a tangible way to support women and babies and choose life!! •

We’re so pleased Gabriella is finally home with her dad, Richard 🤩🤩🤩. She’s been living with her grandparents in Tehran, for the past three years.
This news is bittersweet though. Gabriella has been allowed to regularly visit her mum. Now that she’s leaving Iran they’ll have to rely on phone calls to stay in touch.
It’s even more crucial now for us to come together and bring Nazanin home too. Sign the petition to help us try to #freeNazanin and reunite Gabriella with her mum 👉 link in bio 📸: Tulip Siddiq MP/PA

@badassvegan is 6’6”. I’m about 6 feet. We both are big boys weighing over 200 lbs and we both are in the 40 age club. And between the both of us, we have been eating plant-based for more than 32 years. Yep, I know.. those damn plant eaters are aging backwards and just want everyone else to be kind and eat and feel just as good as them on the inside and outside. Can you blame us for wanting the best for everyone? But we wasn’t always this way. We both have a very dark past, growing up in the Midwest. So it’s going to be a very special moment for both of us to share the stage together tomorrow at the @stlouisvegfest, to tell our origin story of have we both survived the streets of Chicago and St. Louis and went on to be the men you all know us as today. Please join us tomorrow for this incredible moment where us two best friends are open and honest about our lives and passions for food justice, human rights, animal rights and much more. - Dom ✌🏽🌱
شادباش بهمه بانوان ايران كه با خستگى ناپذيرى به يكى ديگر از خواسته هاى خود رسيدند و بزمين فوتبال راه گشودند. گرچه در درازاى اينراه تنى چند درد كشيدند و جان باختند. ورود اخير انان نيز انچنان بى دردسر نبود و چندين "سنگ" بر سر راه ايشان نهاده بودند؛ مانند روند ورود انان به استاديوم و جايگاه انها، با اينهمه باز پيروزى بزرگى بود.
Congratulations to all the ladies of my homeland who, after many years of battle and hardship, and a tragic suicide , were in the end victorious in achieving their hearts’ desires and enter the football Stadium alongside men. Although the authorities had placed a few barriers on their way, such as the mode of their entering the grounds and segregated seats, it was hailed a great victory.
May these ladies reach all their future goals. Amen!
اگرچه راهِ درازیست راهِ آزادی
مبارک است همین خوشدلی، همین شادی...

#IranianWomen allowed to attend #football match for the first time in 40 years!
Iran’s World Cup qualifier against Cambodia on Thursday was a landmark moment for the country, as women were allowed to enter the stadium for the first time in decades. Iran’s ban on women visiting sports stadiums was not written into law but was put in place shortly after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. However, following pressure from human rights group Amnesty International and soccer’s world governing body #FIFA, #Iran agreed to partially lift the restriction. While Thursday's game marks a step forward, #HumanRights Watch called the cap of 4,600 female fans "discriminatory, deceptive, and dangerous."

Planned Parenthood has built their empire by taking away the birthdays of others.
When we give money directly to child beggars, we hurt more than we help. But the imperative to not give money or gifts doesn’t mean we have to turn our backs on them.
Sadly, many children are abducted in India and forced into begging. The statistics are alarming. According to the Indian National Human Rights Commission upto 40,000 children are abducted every year and are forced to beg. It's estimated that 300,000 children across India are drugged, beaten and made to beg every day. It's a multi-million dollar industry that's controlled by human trafficking cartels.
Yet, child begging is not addressed by the authorities the way it should be.
