One of the core tenets of the national Democratic Party platform is “Securing Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice”. Roe v Wade provided reproductive freedoms during the first trimester and allowed for regulations after fetal viability.
However, through shady manipulation altering the makeup of the Supreme Court, individual states are now allowed to impose a narrow religious view defining life as beginning at the point of conception, a view not shared by a large portion of the population or even among different faiths.
Our hearts break for those couples no longer able to use in-vitro fertilization to conceive.
We’re scared for the pre-teen girls who are raped and forced to give birth.
We’re angry on behalf of women who are locked into pregnancies they never wanted, having their right to self-determination removed by government overreach.
We still have a chance at the state level to mitigate some of this damage and protect the rights of women to proper healthcare and freedom to pursue their lives as they see fit. We will continue to fight for women with every breath we take.
