35+ state laws in 2019 have joined to try to overthrow Roe vs. Wade

โ€œThere is great misunderstanding about the actual meaning of having the right to an abortion. A lot of this misunderstanding is pushed by well-meaning liberals so I want to discuss itโ€ฆLong essay ahead.โ€

The right to abortion is NOT about the right to not be a parent. Women already have the right to not be a parent through adoption & safe haven laws in some states

Abortion is specifically about the right to NOT be pregnant/endure child birth.
This is the right to bodily autonomy
Reproductive labor is not only a biological function, it is also the base form of labor for all economic systems.

Economies cannot function [are not sustainable] if women are not constantly producing new humans.

Why I'm atheist #1: #WomensReproductiveRights God threatens spontaneous abortion as punishment. "Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. Yea though they bring forth yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb." Hosea 9:1-17
Why I'm atheist #2: God curses women with pains in childbirth & subjection to men. "Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow & thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children & thy desire shall be to thy husband & he shall rule over thee." Genesis 3:16
Why I'm atheist #3: Lot & his daughters camp out in a cave, the gals get their "just and righteous" father drunk and have sex with him, each gets preggers and bears a son. 'Cuz, incest is "holy", dontcha know. Genesis 19:30-38

#Alabama, #Ohio, #Missouri, and #Georgia have begun the @GOP's orchestrated attack on women with restrictive abortion laws.

Make NO mistake this is NOT about protecting life. It is a hostile GOP and their #WarOnWomen restricting #WomensReproductiveRights and #WomensHealth.
Highly restrictive abortion laws are not associated with lower abortion rates! Whether legal or prohibited the number of abortions taking place remains relatively unchanged. Highly restrictive abortion laws simply prevent SAFE abortions.
In countries where abortion is completely banned or permitted only to save the womanโ€™s life or preserve her physical health, only 1 in 4 abortions were safe; whereas, in countries where abortion is legal on broader grounds, nearly 9 in 10 abortions were done safely.
