Roe v. Wade says the legislative framework is in place to protect woman’s right to choose what to do with her own body. But now that states are breaking the law by denying women their rights, and Trump has packed the Supreme Court with misogynists, that protection may soon be lost and women will be forced to bear children against their will. :( It’s ironic and horrifying that the “pro-life” movement cares more about fertilized eggs than adult women — not to mention actual children, one in five of whom live in poverty in the U.S. Their solution? Force women to make more, or jail 25% of all women — the percentage who will have an abortion sometime during her life. It’s all very sad and upsetting. Humor is a way to cope. But I agree, AC, more laws need to be passed protecting women’s rights.
