I have to go here. The decision the Supreme Court made this week was beyond shocking. 50 years of having a choice over our bodies taken away by 5 people. Now each state can make its own laws on abortion and many are making it illegal.
What does this mean? It means women will have botched home abortions or have babies they don’t want. This means more babies needing adoption, living in foster care, or worse living with a parent who didn’t want them.
My mother got pregnant with me in the early sixties, back then you had shotgun weddings, as they called them. My mother was engaged to a man who was in the service when she had a fling with my dad, she didn’t love him, and certainly didn’t want to marry him. Her parents insisted she keep the baby.
My life was a mistake and she told me that often, along with how much she hated my dad. I had ruined her life. She physically and emotionally abused me and allowed my step-father to abuse me.
Some people should not have children, although I’m glad I’m alive today, I strongly believe my mother should have had an abortion. No one should be told they are a mistake and be treated like I was.
If we are going to take away the reproductive rights of women, we need to take away the rights of men. Men should not be allowed to have a vasectomy so they can continue to procreate and bring unwanted babies into the world.
I’m speaking not from my Christain beliefs but from a woman who doesn’t feel any man has the right to tell me what I can or can’t do with my body.
What does this ruling say? Women can be controlled but not men? Women are not equal? Now abortions become a political game, whatever the personal beliefs of the Governor are is what the state laws will dictate.
I personally have not had an abortion but can clearly state that had I gotten pregnant outside of marriage I would have without hesitation. If it’s wrong, that’s between me and God.
The Supreme Court is not God but acting like it.
What’s your take?
