Thank you @veggiekenz .
Posted @withrepost • @veggiekenz Not sure if you've been keeping up with the news, but there is a lot happening. For starters, several states are passing bills to essentially ban access to abortions. Some of these bans are making the sentence for having an abortion harsher than committing rape! If that's not completely horrifying, I'm not sure what is. So it's productive rage time!
#prochoice doesn't automatically mean that every pregnant person has to get an abortion, but it allows for women to make that decision for themselves. There are so MANY reasons why a person may get an abortion.
One of the most obvious may be in the horrendous case of rape, but there are other reasons such as not being financially able to care for a child. According to an article in the Guardian, a study found that it can cost upwards of $30,000 for a vaginal birth and $50,000 for a C-section and while health insurance may cover a lot of it, new parents still have to pay thousands of dollars. And that doesn't include the cost of buying food, paying for daycare, education, or anything else associated with raising a child. Moreso, sometimes an abortion may provide the most humane option if the fetus does not develop properly and would only provide a painful quality of life. And there are many more!
Women deserve the opportunity to make the decision for themselves as well as what they believe is the best option for their fetus. We need to consider the quality of life of a child AND the mother. Regardless, if a women believes that an abortion is the best option, she will do anything she needs to to get that abortion. Abortion bans do not eliminate abortions, they just make them more dangerous! Ultimately, if you're against abortion, don't have one, but don't keep other women from being able to access one.
