    "Making abortion illegal does not prevent abortion. It kills women."

    how did abortions get banned faster than assault rifles

    Women: can we have access to affordable birth control? Men: NO Women: can we have access to safe abortions? Men: absolutely NOT Women: okay can you wear a condom? Men: ... it doesn’t feel as good :/

    "what if the baby you abort grows up and cures cancer?" what if the 16 year old girl you denying abortion grows up and cures cancer? But now she can't afford to go to get an education. Instead she has to take care of a baby?? What about her??? An actual living human???????

    there's not a single thing in this world a male could experience that would even come close to the indignity of being legally forced to carry your rapist's baby to term

    So let's recap: → sex ed is discouraged → birth control is impossible to access → abortion and miscarriage are considered felonies → felons can't vote

    With all these “heartbeat bills” in the U.S., I keep thinking of this memorial to Savita Halappanavar in Ireland, who died of sepsis after being denied an abortion on the grounds that the fetus she was miscarrying still had a detectable heartbeat. “She had a heartbeat too.”

    Stop calling yourself pro-life when you’re prepared to have a child risk her life to give birth to a rapist’s baby. You’re all fucking insane. https://t.co/BEyTHd4sGg

    1 in 4 women have had an abortion. Many people think they don't know someone who has, but #youknowme. So let's do this: if you are also the 1 in 4, let's share it and start to end the shame. Use #youknowme and share your truth.

    I know there are a lot of men out there who have partners who've had abortions. It's time for you to speak up and be allies. Women don't get pregnant alone.

    Banning abortion is sexism at it’s finest. A man can have sex and opt out of being a father. No ties, no obligations. A woman has sex, and then is forced to keep a child she didn’t want? Do it alone, when the man got a free pass? Ok.

    all men who have benefited from an abortion in their lives should be speaking up more, no?

    Maybe if we start calling our body parts gun-sounding names like “revulva” or “shooterus” the GOP will stop trying to regulate them.

    16.

    The 22 Alabama senators who voted against including an exception for rape or incest in the abortion law. I feel like they have something in common....but I just can't put my finger on it.

    Making abortion illegal does not prevent abortion. It kills women.

    I think Christian moms who abort their 14-year-old LGBT kids from their homes should go to prison for 99 years.

    Do any of these knuckleheads realize that Roe V. Wade was enacted because so many women were dying from illegal abortions that it was a public health crisis?
