Disgust and Disappointment Regarding Arkansas
How is it that we're in the year 2013 and abortion bans such as the one just passed in Arkansas even have a the possibility of passing? Oh yeah, that's right! We do live in a society that deems it acceptable to control women and girls by any means necessary! The same society that elects these anal politicians who can't figure out the importance of reproductive justice because they can't see the injustice in the first place (mainly because they created it). This ban which is set to go into affect this summer, bans abortion in the state of Arkansas after 12 weeks. Some women are just finding out they're pregnant by the time they are 12 weeks. Not to mention those of us who have to save up for our procedure because we are under/ unemployed or only have state funded health insurance. I use the term "us" because I myself was in this very situation. Not only does this ban under Roe v. Wade, it denies women their given right to make their own decisions regarding their reproductive health. I'm furious!!! There aren't enough words to express my disgust right now. Simply appalled!!!!
