We met up with Kelly Verschueren, a University of Washington nursing student, near Seattle Central on Broadway. She chose to show us her “Keep Abortion Legal” tattoo that was done by Jeremy Decory at The Aorta Art Collective, above 11th Ave. Kelly says she chose the tattoo “in response to a breakup” while she was working at Planned Parenthood. “I had a boyfriend who asked if I could go a day without talking about abortion. I was like, ‘hmmm, no.’ Two weeks after we broke up, I got it, I’d been thinking about it anyway… It’s really important to me.” Kelly says the ink has brought positive response. “People maybe don’t want to fuck with someone who is ballsy enough to put the word abortion on their arm.”

It’s a bit of a chaotic test. They get dropped almost everywhere — some literally dropped, for real — and by the end of January, the first electric-assist versions will be on the streets of Seattle. With the city allowing the multi-colored “floating” companies to operate during a Wild West trial period, It’s not a question of whether Seattle will continue to have a bike share program, it’s just a question of what the final rules will be.

A smaller than expected but spirited group gathered Saturday outside E Madison’s Planned Parenthood to counter ongoing demonstrations against the women’s health facility. CHS reported on the Seattle Clinic Defense actions that have come amid increasing national rhetoric against reproductive rights — though the organization that the group is trying to defend has officially discouraged counter-protests. Those who use the health services Planned Parenthood provides shouldn’t have to withstand demonstrations from outraged fundamentalists while they’re walking to and from the doctor, one clinic defender who CHS talked to about the efforts said. “Having something to do instead of just getting online has been really empowering for me,” she said.
