I’m kind of obsessed with Kate.

On Tuesday, the bisexual Governor of Oregon signed the Reproductive Health Equity Act into effect, and the move was heralded as a huge step move forward for reproductive rights. Per the Washington Post, the bill “requires health insurers to provide birth control and abortion without charging a co-pay. It also dedicates state funds to provide reproductive health care to noncitizens excluded from Medicaid.” Furthermore, the law would protect abortion rights in the case that Roe v. Wade is reversed.

NARAL Pro-Choice America said of the landmark bill:

“Thank Kate Brown for signing the nation’s most progressive reproductive health bill into law today!”

Congrats to Brown for bringing the bill to fruition. This is a huge development for women’s rights and Oregonians should be proud.

On Tuesday, Delevingne announced that her first novel, Mirror Mirror, will be released on Oct. 5. I mentioned the book in another LDIO — I don’t remember the plot off the top of my head, but I do know that it has been in the works for a while. Oh, and the bisexual actress also shared the novel’s cover:

So… will anyone be pre-ordering this book? I’m a bit apprehensive about books authored by celebrities, although I have some exceptions.

On another note, here are the most recent photos from Cara’s birthday trip to Mexico:
