Prochoice & motherfuckin' proud!
anyone that knows me, knows where i stand on the issues of women's reproductive rights. unless you've been hiding under a rock, you probably know that roe v wade is in danger of being overturned which to me is fucking insane. i know a lot of people don't agree with me on this issue, and that's totally fine(not really), but i am staunchly prochoice.
i think a lot of antichoicers have it all wrong. i'm not for abortion. that is not an easy choice for any woman to make. but it should be THEIR choice & no one elses, especially the goverment.
i think that children should grow up in loving, stable environments where both parents are involved & are able to take care of the child.
doesn't anyone ever wonder why the u.s. has the highest teenage pregnancy rate? uh, let's see...abstinence only programs are funded by the goverment. literally MILLIONS of dollars are spent on teaching teenagers with raging hormones that sex is a terrible, bad thing that should only happen when you get married, instead of teaching them that there's things such as CONDOMS & that it's perfectly normal to be feeling the way they are. discourage them from sex? sure, but at least give them alternatives because they're going to do it anyway.
i really don't want this to turn into a rant..although it looks like it already has. so i'll just leave it at this: this piece means a lot to me. the topic is very near & dear to me.
i probably won't be posting a whole lot in the next few days because i'll be working nonstop. and i'm pretty crafted out. and i'm pretty irritated with craftster being so fucking slow. what the hell, craftster? why you hatin'?
