When History Repeats Itself After Some Hard Learned Lessons

Hey…Remember when Hitler won and the world was made up of blonde and blue-eyed non Jews, no LGTBQ peeps, zero Gypsies, no more Polish peeps and it was awesome?

Oh wait yes…yep that’s right. It didn’t happen. Because of that whole he was a genocidal, mentally delusional wacko. And a little war that ended his dystopian fantasy. But wait a minute, here we are facing more laws that narrow down people’s human rights all because dudes in power don’t like other people making their own choices based on their own values.

Yes that was a run on sentence. NO I don’t care. Because I have more important things to freak out about for example, how my two daughters may not be able to have access to birth control to help them, you know, control unwanted pregnancy or help with pelvic diseases such as endometriosis and PCOS. How are you going to say that people should be denied birth control and then get upset that they want abortions for the births that could have been avoided because you took away their birth control? Do you see how ridiculous this whole thing is?

Their thoughts:

Birth control is murder. You take a pill, you ovulate but no fertilization hence no baby. So no bc. But now you had sex and are preggers but don’t or can’t have the baby so you go get an abortion because we said no birth control.

Huh?

Don’t worry Elmo. We are ALL confused. Is this a set up? Are you trying to weed out the women? We create you (unfortunately) bunch of assholes who feel the need to make laws that don’t personally affect you. You live in your big houses, with your wife and children, and you get Healthcare that is phenomenal. All the while the rest of us have to spend 80% of our paychecks on healtcare. Not to mention rent and food and other necessities. Which doubles when you have a baby you didn’t want or can even take care of right now. So have the baby then, correct and adopt it to someone? So, pay for the prenatal care and the birth which can land you in debt itself all because it makes you feel better.

It is not even about you personally not having a uterus so you don’t get a say (but really, you don’t). An abortion is not some easy choice. It is a painful and heartbreaking choice and sometimes necessary. (Rape, generic diseases etc. You know, those “pesky” issues you seem to fice zero shits about). Abortion is physically painful too btw as well as mentally hurtful. Why a woman or a couple or a trans man decides to get one is not your business. What medication someone takes is not your business. And certainly telling people they should abstain is not going to help. So instead of thinking with your ass or bible not everyone believes in, leave the reproductive health issues to the people who can you know, REPRODUCE.

The Abortion Laws That Should Make You Furious

Abortion is being made illegal in Alabama and other states and you should be pissed.

Having a baby is a huge decision and life choice. Not having a baby is just as enormous. There are many reasons why a woman would decide on having an abortion, but none of them should involve the government telling her if she is allowed to do so. Making something extremely illegal will encourage people to go out and get it done in other ways, which can be dangerous and life threatening. We have seen this in the opiate epidemic where even the CDC admitted they went a little too far making up the numbers surrounding it. People are buying illegal drugs because they can’t get their own legally.

Having an abortion is not as easy as simply popping a pill. Most doctors won’t take you until you are 6 to 10 weeks pregnant. By then a baby has already started to develop a heartbeat, organs, and buds that will become arms and legs. It’s a difficult choice to end a life. Abortions are no easy decision for anybody and should never be considered such. No matter what your political or religious views are they should not impact somebody else’s decisions. You don’t know why a woman decides to have an abortion. Maybe she is a rape victim or her child will grow up with Tay-Sachs. The child will die a few years after they are born. Would you want to watch your child grow up to the age of 5 only to know that perhaps soon after they will pass away? Nobody has the right to tell you what to do with your body. You may not support abortion but you should support someone’s choices. THEIR choice, not yours. Decisions such as these are throwing women back into a time we’re staying home was the norm and us trying to vote was laughable.

If states are allowed to continue with bans such as this, what other rights could be at risk to be taken away? If you believe they are doing it because they want you to be safe think again. They themselves think it’s morally wrong but they are not the ones who have to carry the child or financially take care of the child. Telling a woman to close her legs or keeping an aspirin between them as birth control is not an answer. This is not even a feminist issue this is a human being issue. Men should be just as furious. Fathers should be just as angry that people are telling their daughter she can’t have an abortion if it could save her life or somebody viciously raped her.

It is time to stop this clock from going backward even further. It’s time to stand up for human rights everywhere.

#SuicideDue2Pain is a Legitimate Hashtag and That Should Be A HUGE Concern

Yes, we all know that drugs is a huge problem in this country. Millions of people die from overdoses because of drug abuse and that is a major concern. I have lost many people in my life because drug related overdoses and someone I love dearly was brought back by ER doctors twice, so I understand how horrible drugs can be. But for those of us who deal with chronic pain everyday we are the ones who are suffering. I don’t agree with doctors just handing out prescription after prescription. But that is one of just many problems. Those who need narcotics and other opioids are being denied because of other people’s mistakes. I tremble and shake with pain every single day because I am no longer allowed to be given pain medication that can help my chronic pain.

People are killing themselves from pain. If you have chronic pain or a chronic illness you may have, at least once, had that thought flash into your mind.

This is an absolute disgrace. There are pain sufferers who are willing to take drug tests, they are willing to go to pain management doctors, we are willing to do anything it takes so that we can get proper care to appease everyone else. But who is helping us? The doctor who outright said NO I can’t help you so he sends you to a pain management dr who also says NO. By the way that is their job…to help manage pain in a safe way. So instead people are killing themselves because they can’t function. Or maybe they themselves are now getting drugs illegally because that’s the option now.

Politicans are taking OUR choices away because of of something they don’t understand.

Someone needs to figure it out before the NEXT EPIDEMIC is suicide from lack of medical care.
