The Radical Handmaids are pro-choice activists who love CanLit and really outrageous hats.
Formed in April 2012 to defeat Motion 312 (Which we did. YOU’RE WELCOME), we remain committed to creatively resisting anti-choice attacks on reproductive rights.

I did have a hat once, which I wore to court when I was getting my divorce — one had to look demure in those days so the judge wouldn’t think I was a loose woman.Though I never had an abortion — it wasn’t right FOR ME — I have helped several women, including one of my daughters-in-law — obtain them. It’s just as you say: not pro-abortion but pro-choice.I am so proud to be a citizen of a country that has not had an abortion law for nearly a quarter of a century! Even our little asshole of a prime minister, who is as anti-woman as can be imagined is smart enough to stay away from changing that situation. One of his henchman, who is trying to have a “conversation” about “when life begins” — i.e. control the reproductive rights of women — isn’t having much success.Reply
