“No woman can call herself free who does not control her own body.”
“My body! My choice!”
“Nobody should be able to tell us what we can and cannot do.”
“Nobody should be able to take our rights away from us.”
“Bans off our bodies”
All of these quotes were found on webpages with content pushing a woman to think of herself as a tower of strength without regard for common female values. The webpages or videos are associated with Planned Parenthood, a corporation that makes A LOT of money from performing abortions. Would anyone consider that a 'conflict of interest'?
The idea that a woman ought to have complete autonomy over her own body is a mantra for unicorns.
We are reminded of Abby Johnson’s testimony during the 2019 Ky Legislature Senate hearing for the 'Heartbeat' Bill. Abby is a former Planned Parenthood clinic director, who testified for the bill sponsor, Sen. Matt Castlen. She said A LOT, even: “Abortion is not normal; taking the life of your own flesh and blood who has your own DNA is not normal. And there are healing resources available.” You can hear her entire testimony here.
Read thousands (or as many as time permits) of aborted women’s testimonies here.
Expectant females must insist on the right to be free of heavy-handed, discouraging rhetoric that pushes them to deny any role to men from people who will never encourage them to give birth or to love their child or to place the child for adoption.
None of us lives for herself alone. People need each other. Thousands of couples wish to adopt.
Stop and think, ladies. Why not rather say, “Bans Off Our Hearts!”
