After seeing a rant against various progressive institutions denounce "Planned Parent Hood", I laughed and imagined a medieval folk hero who steals from the rich and gives essential reproductive health care for the poor. I decided then I had an idea for a Halloween costume. But after thinking about the idea more in the wake of national conversations about health, sex, consent, and reproductive rights of women, I decided that I could do more with this than a detached pun. I decided in my portrayal maybe stealing wasn't a suitable option, but taking donations and using them to support Planned Parenthood was.
I hope you have a happy Halloween, and consider contributing to an organization critical for providing essential health care ranging from contraception to cancer screenings for women all across the country.
