Which is why I’m pro-life
What about the right to food? The right to shelter? The right to not have your freedom restricted to pad the dividends of the Prison-Industrial Complex? The right to make informed choices about contraception, pregnancy, and birth without being subject to domestic terrorism? The right to opt out of parenthood if you know you are unprepared, unfit, dangerous, or simply not ready? The right to an education that nurtures your particular strengths and skills? The right to safe, clean, legal abortion?
These people aren’t advocating for “life.” They are advocating a political strategy that stigmatizes a legal medical procedure in order to punish those they see as sexually transgressive with either death or the financial instability that follows from a lack of reproductive choice. This will never be about life and it will always be about a longing for despotic control of people’s lives by starving them of reproductive freedom.
JUST SO WE’RE CLEAR.
