Normally I’m not political on this blog. Normally I’m anti-political, I’ve even written a blog about it. I do in fact, hate politics, which is why I’ve hesitated on writing this blog. The rights of women are being attacked, there is no question about that, and that’s politics. Like Texas nixing women’s health care. We are past the point of politics, though. We are so far past them that the person hood of women is being called into question.
I wish I was kidding when I say this, but I’m not. Women and their reproductive rights are being compared to that of livestock. Excuse me, but I’m a human being, just in case you hadn’t noticed! So what if cows and pigs carry stillborn infants to term? Why should that matter in the care of human women? It shouldn’t. A miscarriage is devastating enough, why are you going to compound a woman’s loss and force her to carry that child to term, even after it’s dead? Do you normally carry dead things around in your body? Just in case you do, I want to tell you, IT IS NOT HEALTHY.
Worse yet, there’s a bill in Arizona that would protect doctors who don’t inform women that their pregnancy is endangering their lives. Uh, excuse me, WHAT?! A doctor’s profession is to save lives. How is the life of the mother so invaluable that she doesn’t even deserve the right to be told that she might die? Sure she’s more likely to abort the fetus, but you know something, if she wanted that baby, I’m pretty damn sure she’s going to want another. And maybe the next pregnancy won’t be so dangerous to her health.
I haven’t even gotten to the best part, though. I’m sure you’re sitting there thinking “really, how much more can there be?” I haven’t told you about the part where some people are talking about taking away women’s right to vote. Ann Coulter thinks that because some women do not agree with her point of view, the entire gender should be disallowed to vote. What. The. Hell. Excuse me, when did our democracy change over to a dictatorship? Everyone has a right to their own point of view, and the point of voting is to express that point of view. Ms. Coulter, may I kindly suggest you go live in the Middle East somewhere? I’m sure you’ll be much happier in an ultra conservative country where you’re not allowed to go anywhere without a male chaperone and have to be covered from head to toe.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my country, but what the hell is this bull shit?
