Personally, I’m pro-life for myself but believe that everyone has the right to choose what is best for themselves. Your body, your choice, your conscience just as my body is my choice. It would take a God-given miracle for me to get pregnant so I have my emotions turned off because I knew, deep down, that the govt would have signed it into law.
What is, however, going at my nerves like a cheese grater is a fact that the doctors get a harsher sentence than the rapists!!!! Rapists get a much lighter sentence if they are even convicted at all. Having dodged two rape attempts in my lifetime, this pisses me off tremendously!
The number of sex crimes that are going to increase because there are sick nut jobs that get high off stuff like this. They may take away my reproductive rights (time to move), but I still have my right to bear arms (for now). Makes me wonder what else is going to happen in terms of access to proper health care. I get a crock of bs from old school RNs that haven’t retired yet because I don’t have a husband to sign off on my paperwork. Technically, they have to zip it there but don’t always succeed. I have nothing against medical professionals, but that doesn’t give anyone the right to lecture me about my marital status or life decisions. The fact that anyone thinks they can choose for me or any other woman is just insulting to us.
Alabama is and always will be a political embarrassment. There really are some good people in AL. We just happen to get overshadowed by those only make the stereotypes look legit. You would be amazed at the number of folks that believe the stereotypes as truth thanks to the media. It’s insulting to many an Alabamian. AL govt has been a complete shit show this year. It’s just cringe-worthy.
Thank you for your honest opinion. I, too was in the same boat as you! Endometriosis and not married at 34 at the time and no doctor was going to give me a hysterectomy and ended up cancerous by age 44. I suffered ungodly pain and just miserable to be around.
What the hell are these people thinking to give a life sentenced worst then the rapist who gave you the problem, to begin with?
I have PTSD from doctors, so I do have a grudge to pick with them, they might have a white coat, but they screw up like mechanics screw up a car, and the right to sue is hard, a lawyer will say you didn’t die. The guy wasn’t sure if it was uterine or cervical so he cut more then he should have. I had to find this out from another surgeon on the tumor board, he said, You’re the one! The guy cut my left iliac artery in half, and I bled out. I woke from a coma five days later thinking I was in the recovery room to find I was in the ICU.
I have to say, yes you have control of your reproductive system and if you have sex use protection, buy a morning after pill if you feel unsure and keep it handy. Rape and incest, by all means, abort the abomination, but I have spoken to a girl who decided to keep the child, but she said it was a hard thing to do. I have personally known of incest victim that carried full term and gave it up for adoption, and when they finally found out four years later, they had to let the adoptive parents know it was father-daughter. The girl is permanently disabled mentally and blocks everything out, and we thank god she does. She dissociates.
I really do appreciate taking the time to write in, I’m so sorry this happened to you. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Thank you anon and God bless you! 🌸😎
