They say history repeats itself! As I get older I’ve come to the realization that the saying rings higher and higher. The recent decision to overturn Roe-vs-Wade after fifty (50) years is one for the books. What happen if the female has been raped, experienced incest and/or domestic violence, etc., but forced to look at that child as a constant reminder?
Before the negative reviews start, I am NOT a Feminist, I AM a Humanitarian.
Although that may sound a little contradictory, I truly feel that people have the right to choose what to do with their own body as long as it is not hurting a physical human being vs an embryo. The choice to discard an unborn child should be left up to the mother; in the end that is her conscience she’ll have to deal with as well as answer to the higher power. Most of the time we are outsiders looking into a situation that we do NOT know anything about.
If a woman is require to have a child (otherwise she faces a Felony, possibly jail time). Why is it not a law that will require a man/male to get a Vasectomy if he doesn’t pay child support? Will this rule automatically give the mother and baby free Automatic Healthcare Benefits, Relaxed Salary Requirements for WIC, Access to Affordable Child Care, a Raise beyond Minimum Wage? I can go on and on, but I believe you get the point.
As a woman, an African American woman, I feel that the decision to overturn the five decade decision, opens up the door for more changes. Only time will tell. If my Grandmother was still alive, she would say this world is coming to and end! When I was a child I thought that was just frivolous talk, but after these past two (2) to three (3) years, I concur. May God Bless Everyone!
