Y’all imagine having to tell the WORST story of your life over and over and over again and it still not working To a judge, to politicians, to skeptics… and it still not changing things. We honestly, are so in awe of the women who tell their story loudly, who stand up for those who can’t tell their story yet, who try to destigmatize and make people understand.
BUT WE ARE FUCKING TIRED OF THEM HAVING TO SPEAK AT THESE 4-HOUR ABORTION DEBATES WHERE SOME IDIOT POLITICIANS HAVE ALREADY MADE UP THEIR MIND.
Like how do you, as a human being, hear all these heart-wrenching stories and of people saying they NEEDED an abortion and still be like “Um naw… not convinced.” Like we assume all these politicians have earplugs in.
This The State article out of South Carolina mentions a few women who testified, one woman who aborted after she found out the fetus would have a life-threatening genetic disorder and one single mom who could not afford another baby. BOTH of these stories are valid. Both should be enough to convince people that abortion is necessary and good.
And stop with this whole “easy” bullshit. Are we really trying to like… neg people into HAVING AND RAISING A BABY! Think about that “Idk seems pretty lazy to not just … change your whole life, spend all your money, buy a billion diapers, have to pay all these medical bills. Like, are you SURE you want to take the easy way out.” UM WHAT? How much a judgmental bitch do you have to be to say it’s too “easy” to make an informed decision about what you are ready to handle in your life.
But these people, they just have their minds made up. And that’s how we get to North Dakota and “abortion reversal.” In case you haven’t been following the news “abortion reversal” is one of the latest trends in the fear-mongering anti-abortion movement that preys on people who ALREADY HAVE TAKEN the first pill in medication abortion, mifepristone.! Read the Frontline article linked here because it really lays out just how unscientific and dangerous this whole thing is. Literally, any scientist or doctor WORTH THEIR SALT comes into these hearings about passing “abortion reversal” laws and is like “hey, this is… not a thing” and politicians are still like “HMMM, naw I think this is a thing!”
FIVE states have passed laws based on this debunked science! They want doctors to lie to their patients!
At least a judge JUST TODAY said this DIRECT QUOTE about North Dakota’s bullshit abortion reversal law: “State legislatures should not be mandating unproven medical treatments, or requiring physicians to provide patients with misleading and inaccurate information.” BOOM ROASTED!!
At least SOMEONE is listening!
