The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24, 2022, holding that there was no longer a federal constitutional right to an abortion.
For fifty years women have had their constitutional right of privacy and body autonomy. For fifty years a woman was safe to decide what was right for her body. She did not need to hire a lawyer for a necessary termination of pregnancy. Compassion was upheld for those that had been raped or were carrying a non-viable pregnancy.
History shows us that woman's reproductive rights have been tied to those wanting power and control which, as we know history repeats itself and is the case now. Politically it's more advantageous, certain groups would have us believe, to oppress women. To keep them in their place as in the "good ole days" where women were home having babies and taking care of the kids and home. Let us add that any gender that can carry a child is subject to harm with the new radical regime of views that are filtering into the norm of society like a plague, a sickness that if allowed will degrade true democracy.
Can anything be done? Well for certain one must not do NOTHING. The passive act of accepting the status quo. It's not right! We must voice our opinions, we must ban together, and we must speak for those that are oppressed. Those that are marginalized, that feel trapped in the circumstances that have saturated our world need people to help them.
We are being used. Those women who do not stand for us are mislead, naive. To be so thoughtless of a sister who is in need of healthcare is such a blatant attack of pious injustice of pressing views of right and wrong upon another while not living in their shoes.
Speak up, stand strong, and never give up. Together we can change the world.
