Abortion rights have long been a thorny issue, and Biden’s latest move is a massive step in the right direction. But not everyone is happy about it …
Women all over the world have long fought for the right over their own bodies.
Abortion has always been a somewhat “taboo” topic, with women historically being forced to risk their lives in order to terminate their unwanted pregnancies.
The Roe V. Wade legal case saved many women’s lives.
The 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case affirmed that a woman’s access to safe and legal abortion is a constitutional human right.
The right to safe and legal abortion has been the law of the land for more than forty-five years and is a part of the fabric of this country.
Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court dealt a huge blow to our right to access safe, legal abortion, however. Kavanaugh was nominated by President Trump, who had previously made a clear promise to nominate judges who would “automatically” overturn Roe v. Wade.
These people claim that they believe in “pro-life” and that terminating a pregnancy is up in the same ranks as “murder.”
With the phrases “murderer” and “baby killer” often thrown about, it can be difficult to take these people too seriously.
From calling pro-choicers “terrorists” to comparing abortion to the Holocaust, to tirelessly referencing Christianity and “God’s way” to justify keeping an unwanted pregnancy, pro-lifers will say pretty much anything to rationalize their views on the topic.
We all remember the time U.S. senate candidate Todd Akin notoriously blamed rape victims for their unwanted pregnancies, saying, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
It’s believing that the right to choose what happens to your body is fundamentally important.
As Biden has made a landmark decision.
The 2-dose regimen of hormone blocker misoprostol and mifepristone will be made available by post in all states.
“We are pleased to see mifepristone regulated on the basis of the scientific evidence during the pandemic, rather than political bias against comprehensive reproductive health care,” the ACOG said in a statement.
This will allow women all over the USA to access early abortion.
