I can’t escape the madness of politicians’ obsession with tougher restrictions on abortions and belittling women’s right to choose. I was thinking, perhaps, these men who keep making these laws really truly care about life and don’t want more “children” (fetuses) being murdered. BUT if that were really the case, wouldn’t they be making just as many tough laws on men to ensure women wouldn’t be getting pregnant in the first place.?Why wouldn’t they make men indentured servants to these children BY LAW just as they are forcing women to carry the pregnancy of unwanted children?
So, let’s face it. This isn’t about saving these precious unborn children–because if they REALLY cared about children they wouldn’t approve of poverty wages and stripping the welfare system. Further, if they REALLY REALLY cared about children, they wouldn’t legally FORCE women to have children who will not be cared for by their biological parents and possibly be tossed around the foster system.
So we KNOW they don’t care about children since it’s obvious children’s needs come last, then is this about women? Is this about making sure women aren’t promiscuous? Is that about controlling women, shaming them and making sure they are barefoot and pregnant AND HELPLESS in society, chasing around as many rug rats as possible? Is this about keeping us in our place? Or even a crazier notion, maybe it’s a race issue since the only lawmakers I am aware of that keep bringing up the issue are white… Maybe these white male lawmakers want to make sure the white race carries on as white females have more abortions than any other race:
Reported Legal Abortions by Race of Woman Who Obtained Abortion
United States WHITE: 52.4% BLACK: 40.2% OTHER: 7.3% (AKA minorities make up 47.5/47.6 %)
Maybe that’s the real deal. We know it has nothing to do with saving lives of unborn children since, if you don’t care about the ones already living, anyone who cares about ones who aren’t born must be insane. (I recall a story about a woman who smoked crack all the way through her pregnancy and how severely underweight it was. While abortion may not have been an option this woman was considering, SURELY lawmakers need to ensure not just that these children are born, but are protected in the womb. Maybe pregnant women should be institutionalized and all fetuses protected. Oh wait. That’s an INSANE notion… That lawmakers who force women to have babies should also make laws that ensure these children are healthy.)
It might be about keeping us ladies knocked up and pregnant, running around chasing kids while the men rule the country.
Or… crazier, it might be a race issue since the only lawmakers throwing a fit about abortions are…. White.
I just can’t stand this nonsense any more. And while I am not a big fan of abortions, women should have safe access to them. AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND FREE BIRTH CONTROL for all women, especially the IUD.
If you won’t let us have and pay for safe abortions, surely you know the excessive cost on taxpayers to pay for children, from home to school to every other aspect of their lives. So… GIVE us free birth control, since … it has become abundantly clear lawmakers don’t care how many women a man knocks up and the loose laws around child support, etc, and NO laws against knocking up as many women a man wants to. So give us the ability to prevent abortion by preventing pregnancy.
I feel better now. Let the games begin.
