Thousands of girls and women are raped in #Honduras every year. But rape survivors who become pregnant as a result of their sexual assault are not allowed to get a legal abortion or even take a morning-after pill. Thatโ€™s because authorities in the strongly Roman Catholic country believe the rights of an unborn child should be โ€œprotected by law at all costs.โ€ That means any method to terminate a pregnancy is considered illegal and carries a multi-year jail sentence. I don't care how u feel about abortion but no woman or little girl should EVER be forced to carry their rapist's child. In Honduras, men get away rape and women get 6yrs behind bars for wanting to get rid of their rapist's baby....CRAZY!!!!

I can so relate! I've been through this!!!!!!!! If you're going through it right now...STAY STRONG! You'll get through this!

One of the most heartbreaking stories of 2017. She covered the black eye her boyfriend gave her with makeup. Her family knew she was being abused, her friends knew, even the police knew but did nothing about it! Her boyfriend claims he loved her, but he beat her to death and set her body of fire. She was only 22. What kind of monster does that? What kind of evil, broken, sorry excuses for men are we raising? #ripkarabo

"Jumping the broom" is a ritual, handed down from generation to generation to remind us of a time when our vows were not legally sanctioned. During slavery, the ancestorsย sought the legitimacy of marriage by jumping over the broom and into the bonds of domesticity. For the ancestors, this small ritual was a legal and bonding act connecting them with the heritage of the home land and giving legitimacy,dignity and strength to their unions. History tells us that the ancestral rootsย of this ritualย began deep in the heart ofย Africa. It's original purpose andย significance hasย been lost over the yearsย because of theย association with slavery. Some scholars speculate that cultural significance of the broom dates back to a region in West Africa that is now called Ghana. The areas occupied by the Asante ethnic group were reportedly well kept, due to the extreme use of local customized brooms. Brooms were also used in marriage ceremonies where they waved over marrying couples, serving as a way to remove evil spirits and/or sweep off past wrongs in order to start anew. Most times, at the end of the marriage ceremony, couples would jump the broom, representing a new beginning. British colonization led to the Asante discarding the practice of jumping the broom as they adopted other practices from European culture.ย For some ethnic groups in Southern African the practice represented the wife's commitment or willingness to clean the courtyard of the new home she had joined. Basically, Jumping the broom is an African tradition that has been Americanized. Should you decide to incorporate this wonderful tradition in you wedding remember toย do it with the honor and dignity it represents. โค๏ธ
