I am pro choice because bodily autonomy is a human right.
I am pro choice because abortion is health care.
I am pro choice because people will die without access to safe legal abortion. People will be forced to go to backstreet abortion clinics, where they will get inadequate care and then die.
There have been so many cases of pregnant people (both adults and children) being forced to carry non-viable pregnancies (e.g. ectopic pregnancies and non viable foetuses) who have then died.
There have been so many cases of people who have been raped being forced to continue with the pregnancy.
There have been so many cases of people who have had miscarriages and been accused of having an abortion and then being imprisoned.
Abortion bans will disproportionately affect Black people, People of Color, and Indigenous people, many of whom already have difficulty accessing abortions.
If you want to prevent abortions, make contraception and vasectomies widely available, and make free childcare available for the first three years of life (as is the case in Scandinavia).
And don’t even get me started on the hypocrisy of SCOTUS declining to support more stringent gun control on the one hand, and striking down Roe V Wade on the other.
