- PODCAST: Toward reproductive sovereignty, not reproductive rights
People please, get educated about women's fight for reproductive freedom, talk to anti-abortionists and establish strong arguments against the sexism that leads to legislation that is dire to women's health and equality. This fight is crucial, your knowledge surrounding the subject can not be minimal. This brings me to a very serious point, if you voted for Donald Trump despite the face that his Supreme Court picks would put Roe v. Wade in jeopardy I am finding it very difficult to forgive you. WOMEN, how could you put other women's right to deciding their fate at risk like that? Your right to tax breaks, or border walls, or whatever reason you selected to justify your vote, is not more important than this. Women's ownership of their own bodies hangs in the balance here, we already see it in the hundreds of restrictive laws that have been pursued and past in the last decades. I must acknowledge the privilege that the women who voted for Trump showed. These women didn't feel that their rights were at risk, they have money to get top-secret abortions from fancy doctors, they have health insurance and IUDs in place, they've already had their abortions and are now fat, happy and rich with their nuclear families in the burbs, the women who voted for Donald Trump for President said FUCK YOU to all of the other women in this country. I, personally, am not ready to forgive that, but I can say definitively that I will never forget that.
PLEASE, take this issue as serious as any and don't vote for any person in any position that isn't PRO-CHOICE. Because being PRO-CHOICE is PRO WOMEN, is PRO EQUALITY, is PRO HUMAN, is PRO LOVE!
