…this shit just happened in georgia. if you don’t feel like clicking through, the GA house of representative passed a “fetal pain” bill, which cuts six weeks from the time women can have elective abortions.
i broke out in tears after reading it. it’s too much, guys. why the fuck are these people making these ridiculous laws? i’m sorry that someone’s god doesn’t like abortion (who fuckin’ does?!?), but why can’t we agree that since it’s a necessary evil, it should remain safe and legal for all?
why is this even happening? is it man’s attempt to regulate women in general, based on a fear of not being needed? is it about turning back the clock? what’s the end game? okay, let’s say these idiots get what they want - all abortion is illegal and now the planet is crawling with little unwanted babies that nobody can raise. (i’m assuming that these are the children of rape because if everything goes to plan, women will be too afraid to have sex for pleasure - that’s a man’s prerogative!) now what? what now? how far back are we going, government? do i need to freshen up my cotton picking skills?
i’m crying because i don’t know what to do. planned parenthood gets my money. i’ll sign every petition that comes down the pike. i vote - and i don’t mean, i registered to vote in 2008. i mean, i’ve been voting consistently since 1992. but i don’t know what else to do. and i don’t think it’s working.
the argument over women’s reproductive rights has been reaching a fever pitch over the past few months. this story linked above was the straw that broke my camel hump. i can’t take it. now if you’ll excuse me, i have to go through my budget with a fine-toothed comb to find things i must cut to afford living in this day & age. i mean, i guess our financial problems are fixed since we’re currently hunting down wombs, right?
