The Alabama abortion ban has prompted women from all around the United States to share their stories of terminating their pregnancies. Actress Busy Philipps shared that she has had an abortion and tweeted that she wasn't ashamed of her choice. She used the hashtag "YouKnowMe," and in a week thousands of women have followed in the Philipps' footsteps by revealing that they, too, have undergone the procedure.
Keke Palmer was one of those women, tweeting that she had an abortion because "I was worried about my career responsibilities and afraid that I could not exist as both a career woman and mother." The questions, criticisms, and coverage must have been too overwhelming for Palmer because she later deleted the post. However, she did explain why she decided to remove her story.
"Twitter is sometimes too flat and too short to express intimate sentiments," Palmer explained. "Words without context, very annoying." She continued, "I am disheartened about hearing the news in Alabama. I feel as if women rights laws are going backwards. Individual choice is being taken. I’m truly so confused at the world rn and the policies that follow. #YouKnowMe," adding "Making individual choices is not a betrayal to your faith. Mainly, because God knows your heart and your journey. God never judges. I hate that it’s always a this vs that, instead of an “I understand YOUR PERSPECTIVE.”
EDC Actually Streamed The Game of Thrones Season Finale for Fans During The Festival [VIDEO]
Two major events happened this past weekend: first, obviously, EDC Las Vegas; and second, the series finale to Game Of Thrones. Having attended the festival myself this past weekend, it’s hard to really say with any confidence which event people were more excited about.
Heading to the festival on the shuttle, no one was talking about the sets they were going to see or where they’d be headed. For the most part, people were sharing tips on which terms to mute on Twitter so they wouldn’t see any spoilers. However, for those who ponied out the extra cash for VIP, it didn’t matter.
Over by main stage, and at least one other location at the festival, the series finale of Game Of Thrones was being streamed in the VIP area. Walking through the VIP entrance with food, activities, and drinks was interrupted by the sound of Winterfell — with captions, of course.
For those who could spare an hour during their night, they were met with the ending to one of the greatest media series of our generation. Take a look at the set up below!
