So, for the life of me, I’ll never understand why our legislative entities are so hell bent on policing a woman’s body. Like, they’ll gladly cut access to Planned Parenthood and various social programs, but a woman better not DARE make a decision about what to do with her own uterus. All I can say is, Georgia and Alabama have lost their cotdamn minds, son. The truth is, it’s a dangerous fucking time to be a woman in America, man.
Ok, for those who missed it, both Georgia and Alabama have passed some frightening legislation on abortion. Now, let’s start with Georgia, fam. To begin, the state’s “fetal heartbeat” law will make it illegal for a woman to get an abortion after six weeks. Here’s the thing: a lot of women don’t even know they’re pregnant at the six-week mark. Meaning, this law doesn’t give women a chance to make an informed decision, bruh. Essentially, this is as close to an abortion ban that Georgia could pass, son.
In addition, this law gives the authorities the right to investigate a woman who has miscarried. Wait, let me say that again, man. Listen, if a woman has a miscarriage, the fucking police will now have the jurisdiction to investigate her. Like, that’s fucking insane, fam! Women are literally being turned into criminals for their own bodies, bruh. Honestly, I’m fucking scared for them, son.
Now, let’s talk about Alabama. So, unlike Georgia, Alabama just flat out said that women can’t have abortions. Well, unless there’s a “health risk.” To make matters worse, a few lawmakers tried to add exceptions for rape and incest and those provisions were shot down, man. So, let me get this straight, fam. A woman could literally be sexually assaulted, but held in violation of the law for not wanting to have the baby. My God, women are becoming prisoners to their own fucking bodies, fam. Frankly, I legit don’t know what else to say, bruh.
In the end, I see where all of this is going, son. Real talk, the proponents in Alabama are banking on this law reaching the Supreme Court, man. Ultimately, they’re trying to get Roe v. Wade overturned. The sad part is, at the rate things are going right now, that shit might actually happen, fam. At the end of the day, I honestly hope I’m wrong, bruh. All I know is, we can’t rest on our laurels, brethren. The fight is here and every voice is needed. That is all. LC out.
