We are writing our own version of the Handmaiden’s Tale, and it’s a brutal one.
(House Bill 1566) By the end of the month, women seeking abortions in Arkansas have to ask the biological fathers permission before they can have an abortion. And while this makes sense in a healthy relationship, it doesn’t in an abusive one. Sadly, that’s not all. The new law doesn’t exclude rape victims.
First, the women have to endure the humiliation of being violated and raped, and, since that’s not enough, now they have to ask the criminal for permission if they don’t want to have the child. The new law doesn’t exclude incest either.
A child being raped and abused by a family member doesn’t seem to have any rights anymore. What a heartless world it is!
There is a big difference between being pro-abortion or being pro-choice. We couldn’t have children and abortion is something I don’t approve of. Nevertheless, I am pro-choice. I think abortion should be the last option but in the end, it should be up to the Mother. It’s her life and her body. Who am I to judge? Who am I to order?
The bill passed Arkansas’ house and senate without anyone voting against it.
If there is a god, I hope it’s a woman, and I hope all those hypocrites making laws like that get bitch-slapped right there at the pearly gates before they get turned away. And while we are at it, may I be allowed to watch, please!
Goodness, what is this nation turning into and what is next?
