What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

Do you remember when Republicans (mostly) were yelling “My Body, My Choice” regarding vaccinations against Covid-19? They were against vaccinations that could save their pathetic lives. Do you remember? Well, I do. It makes my blood boil.

It made my blood boil then, too. Make no mistake about that! But I am sitting here thinking about the issue of abortion. No one wants to get an abortion…and no one wants to kill babies, but there are circumstances where abortion is the choice a woman must make regarding her personal and individual situation. This is a decision between a woman, her partner (if she has one), and her doctor. The government doesn’t belong in that equation!

Why am I bringing up abortion when I began this post about Covid-19? Don’t you see the hypocrisy? If the argument is “My Body, My Choice” regarding vaccinations, then why doesn’t it apply to a woman’s right to choose for herself regarding abortion? It’s her body…it should be her choice.

I am so sick to death of this conservative bullshit. They are pushing things beyond reasonable. This ban on abortion is setting this country back decades. I’m not saying abortion should be legal with absolutely no constraints. I don’t like abortion being used as a form of birth control because women know how to prevent pregnancy if they don’t want to become pregnant. However, what happens when a woman is raped? Should she be forced by the government, forced by men to have a child she didn’t ask for in the first place? What about the 12-year-old girl who is raped by her stepfather? Should she be forced to have a child that she’s not physically or mentally mature enough to have? What about a woman who must abort a pregnancy in order to save her own life? Perhaps to save her other children from losing their mother? There are numerous situations in life we just don’t have control over, and sometimes we have to make tough choices.

Why any woman would support a political candidate who wants a total ban on abortion (and the abortion pill) is beyond me. This isn’t about killing babies. No one wants to kill babies. Don’t get me wrong here. I don’t believe in abortion, but that doesn’t mean I want to take another woman’s rights and flush them down the toilet. It’s none of my damn business!

Republicans are putting women’s rights through a fucking paper shredder! If they have their way, it won’t be long before women won’t be allowed to vote or have their own bank accounts, have a job/career, or do anything of their own accord.

Hmmm… It’s looking more and more like The Handmaid’s Tale coming to life every day.

PS I highly recommend The Handmaid’s Tale to every woman. It will boil your blood and make you cry. It’s hard to watch but well worth your time. Trust me.

Earworm – God Bless The USA

I woke up this morning with a few scattered thoughts and this song on my mind. I can only hope things will get better soon. I wish everyone would stop and think about what our flag represents. Think about those who died for our right to protest and to speak freely. Think about other countries who have governments that rule with an iron fist; where citizens have little to no rights. Think about our Great Nation, the USA, and what it would be like if we were to come under dictatorial rule. What would happen if we lost the rights we have become so used to having? We take our rights for granted, don’t you think? We must stand together now and hold the American Flag high.

Being a Patriot is about standing up for the Constitution of The United States of America, supporting our government, and standing up for our country as a whole, not just certain groups of people. Our government is not perfect, by a long shot, but change must come about peacefully and according to our laws. Let us unite and fix what is broken instead of ripping it completely apart.
