The irony of this all when art imitates real life:
If you take the Permelian trade route, a new holobillboard may catch your eye. It’s a pro-choice holobillboard in response to what the organizers call an anti-choice campaign they say targeted specific planets this spring.
NightsisterReach is behind them. The first debuted on Primeday and three more will join it by the end of the season.
The CEO NightSisterReach, says seeing the billboards by Pro-Life Across the Stars, a pro-life organization out of Naboo, “triggered” her.
“I’m a Dathomirian woman and I’ve had to have an abortion,” she says. “I’ve had to make that hard choice and the last thing I need is to be shamed. What I need is support.”The billboards were placed in near Dathomir, Concord Dawn and Boz Pity and have messages reading “life begins at conception,” “dad’s princess,” and “heart beat at 18 days.”
NightSisterReach’s own billboards in response include messages like
“I don’t deserve to be shamed for my reproductive health decisions,” and
“I deserve: reliable, accurate sex education.”
However, not everyone is on board.“I don’t agree with the billboards,” says Countess, who declined to give her surname. “I believe life begins at conception and I think every life matters and so I don’t agree with promoting something that diminishes life and doesn’t respect the dignity of it.
“RealTimeNews reached out to Pro-Life Across The Stars. We have not yet received a response.
Listen to the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (@SWAG_77) Podcast as Gina and Tony read through and review the comic, Star Wars Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir, Issue #3. Prepare for the awesome power of Darth Maul after TCW Season 5 Mandalorian Arc — or Mauldalorians. SPOILERS!
At SWAG 77, we launched our Asajj Ventress Facebook Character page in 2011. She originally was played as a Nightsister. Ventress was born a witch from the planet Dathomir, but was given up by her mother to save the clan. She was made a slave. When her master was killed, she was handed over to a Jedi, where she began her training. Then her master died, distraught, she left them and began fighting as a warrior in barbaric competitions. Later, she joined Count Dooku and served him as a Dark Acolyte. She fought in the Clone Wars and would become a rival of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Then Count Dooku betrayed her and she returned to her home planet, Dathomir to her Nightsisters. The leader of the clan, Mother Talzin helped her get revenge. But attempts failed causing the Nightsister clan to be wiped out by Count Dooku and General Grievous.
She found her new lease on life becoming a bounty hunter and working with others such as Dengar, Boba Fett, Latts Razzi and even Bossk.
When Darth Maul returned she aided her old rival, Master Kenobi to escape the Sith Lord.
