Read and try NOT getting angry-
There is no greater obstruction of equal rights for women than the illegalization of abortions. Denying women the right to abortion is a flagrant misguided attempt to project others’ religions out of ignorance of the facts and an uncouth consideration for the woman and her right to privacy. In the book, Feminism is for Everybody by Bell Hooks, she clarifies, “And we were clear that there could be no genuine sexual liberation for women and men without better, safer contraceptives-without the right to a safe, legal abortion.” Equality is often measured in equal opportunity, and with every unwanted pregnancy if abortion were not legal, there would be a considerable lack of equality among women of all regions and backgrounds.
FIGHT THE HEARTBEAT BILL OHIOANS.
Legislatures are proposing and actively trying to put into action the heartbeat bill to limit abortions. In complete negligence of Roe vs. Wade, this proposition is completely unconstitutional and regresses and retracts from so many of the challenges women have overcome in recent years to become equal. Without sexual liberty and freedom, including abortions, women will forever be placed below the thrones of men in rights and freedoms. Oppose bill HB125.
If you live in Ohio, please visit:
Find your congressman or congresswoman and declare that the heartbeat bill is unconstitutional and to not support it. The upsurge of antiabortion legislation in recent news is more than upsetting for me and other women that consider abortion a constitutional right and we should maintain control of our own bodies. If you are personally against abortion, that is your own choice and religious sentiment should not makes its way into legislature. Cutting funding of planned parenthood and other legislations should be actively opposed.
