And they say that we’re the ones who don’t care about children?!
This is what happens when women speak up. This is what happens when we tell our stories.
Remember: this isn’t about preventing abortions. It is perfectly legal for pregnant people in Ireland to travel overseas to access the medical care that our country refuses to give us. In 1992, the country was asked to ratify the Thirteenth Amendment to our constitution, which specifically allows pregnant people to leave the country for abortion. It was passed by a 2/3 majority.
There has never, to my knowledge, been a serious effort to repeal the Thirteenth Amendment.
They do not try to prevent people from having abortions.
Instead, they silence them. Call them murderers. Tell them to kill themselves or their children.
There is nothing pro-life about anti-choice. It is stone cold misogyny. Nothing more. Nothing less.
