MMMMonday: a space for processing regarding the Gosnell trial.

It's MMMMonday! Each Monday, we bring you special, maintainer-curated content intended to enrich your VP experience. Please note that you can find past MMMMonday posts using the "mmmmonday" tag.

Also, a quick reminder about the other places you can find VP: vp_bulletins for local announcements; contact_vp for questions and feedback on the way VP is run; the Vulvapedia for basic questions; and don't forget about our sibling community over on Dreamwidth!

*****This topic is very disturbing, and comes with a massive trigger warning: discussion of Gosnell trial, which has to do with infanticide, botched abortion, and racism.****

Have you been following the coverage of the trial of Dr. Gosnell? Some of us on the maintainer team have, and it's understandably brought up a lot of strong and complicated feelings. We wanted to give our superstars a place to process these feelings about things like the reports of racism and trying to separate out the discussion of a murder trial from the conversation about abortion.

Let's be particularly mindful about safe space as we talk about this emotional topic. Just as a reminder, here is VP's policy on abortion debate and safe space.
