🔥This week's hot topic: President Trump may be able to appoint a pro-life Supreme Court judge soon after Anthony Kennedy's sudden "retirement."

📣This was discussed on Real Time with Bill Maher.

[Naive aside: I always thought judges were supposed to be impartial.]
💥That’s the thing. A man and a woman have sex.

⚡️The woman gets an unwanted pregnancy.

😔Other than possibly chipping in for the cost of the abortion, the man’s life is rarely complicated again.

💭Many never even find out.
❓So why do women have abortions?

‼️No one wants to have an abortion.

💥And no, they shouldn’t be punished. If so, the man should be equally punished since the man is 50% responsible—or more than 50% in many cases. Here are some NIH study results.
💥NIH does de-emphasize this very salient fact: the mean number of reasons for having an abortion is nearly FOUR!

‼️NIH then lists THREE reasons women have abortions.
💥They also studied why some women wait longer than 16 weeks to have an abortion.
🛎️Women are almost always in their 20s when they have an abortion. And alone.

🛎️🛎️Women are scared to death—for a variety of reasons (two of them above)—when they decide to have an abortion.

👇Here’s a translation of these two studies (HINT: SCARED TO DEATH!!)
⁉️And why is incest separated out from rape? When it comes down to it, it’s the same thing. Any incest survivor will tell you that the sex is not voluntary (unless they have not had the luxury of therapy). Incest= rape. & rape= rape whether it’s in the bushes or in a dorm room.
💥But let's say a woman makes it past the overzealous pro-life protesters, has an abortion, moves on with her life...

🔁EVERY TIME that same woman goes to the doctor—even for a head wound—she can always count on those same questions in the medical history section of the forms.
🔁🔁🔁For the rest of her life, she'll have to answer the same questions over and over.

❓❓❓❓How many pregnancies? How many children? How many miscarriages? How many abortions?
🥼And if the woman answers the last question, many doctors will judge and lecture her.

❓If you cut your forehead at age 75, is an abortion at age 24 going to complicate the stitching process?

🤨Meanwhile, the man who got her pregnant has gone on his merry way long, long ago.
⁉️Why is that question always on there? Who thought of these questions? Undoubtedly a man.

⁉️To shame, to blame, to embarrass, to harass, to HOLD WOMEN BACK? They may be relevant to a gynecologist for a limited period of time, but after that? Very questionable.
⚡️I found these statistics on how many people in this country are pro-life vs. pro-choice.

🔅The results are not that surprising. The most recent year there is a statistic, May of 2017, 49% are pro-choice, 46% are pro-life and 2% are “mixed/neither.” (The other 3%, hmmm.)👇
😲But what is strange is the jump between 2008 and 2009. In 2008, the Pro-choice/Pro-life/Mixed-Neither stats were 50/44/1 in 2008 and in 2009 it was 42/51/2 in 2009—almost a complete reversal—before settling back to the closer statistics in 2013-2017.…
⁉️So…what happened in between May of 2008 and May of 2009? Did our country get more religious?

🤔President Obama took office. The Tea Party started organizing, fueled by the Koch Brothers’ vast fortune and racist protesters.
📋Another statistic. Recorded abortions have decreased substantially between 2009-2014.

⁉️Why? Probably because of increased access to birth control—particularly Plan B. But many hardcore Republicans are opposed to birth control.
🐘Hardcore Republicans are opposed to birth control, Plan B, welfare, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare—in short—anything that would help a woman not get pregnant or help her when she does get pregnant.

🐘What are they for? Sex with women in their 20s. (joke)
👌Right now abortion is legal in the United States.

😱But do you want to know the disturbing thing that a Harvard PhD candidate found out? He was doing his dissertation on google searches and discovered a Google Trend about abortions.
⚡️Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, author of Everybody Lies, spent 5 years on this study of Google Trends. During this April 2018 interview, @seanilling asked him what the most shocking thing he found in his research.

🔽The answer?…
🔎People (probably mostly women) searching for ways to do abortions themselves.

🚫People ask “do you want to go back to the wire hanger days?” No, obviously.

⛔️But I’m sure methods in today’s world are far more dangerous and probably involve chemicals.
⁉️Go back to those days?

🌎We're already there.

⚖️And abortion is legal now.
🔁I’ll say it again: this is the most important election of my lifetime. We have the majority.

❗️But we have to use it to our advantage and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE for #Democrats.
👏👏I’ll end on another Bill Maher quote.

❗️The DNC will not help us.

❗️ We need to do this ourselves.
💻Data from CDC

📋Abortion Surveillance Reports, 2009-2014:…
💥Oh yeah, and Trump? Pro-life my ass!

💥And here's another one.

📋These are just 2 that are on record. I'm sure there are more.
