I feel a certain way about being told what to do with my vagina.
I feel a certain way about people imposing their beliefs on me.
I feel a certain way about being judged for making a decision based on what I know and feel.
I feel a certain way about abortion, Life, choice, rights and the government.
While having a conversation with a friend she told me that there’re places that use Dettol antiseptic liquid for abortions. As in, they basically pour that into your vagina and wait for the rest to happen. I know of people who drink water boiled with 5 thebes for this too. Some women use coat hangers, others drink poison. It’s all just a fucking mess.
Now,I’m from Botswana, and here abortion is illegal. People bring up such issues as It being murder, it being immoral. It’s a child.. If you didn’t want the baby you shouldn’t have had sex..Oh so what if you’re dirt broke and won’t be able to support it? Bring it into the world. So what if you were raped and will possibly hate the child? Bring it into the world.
Because all humans have rights, including those who haven’t seen the light of day, except for women who want to decide what to do with their bodies and their lives.
Sex gets messy. Life gets messy. Sometimes, you end up in situations you didn’t bargain for. We know this.
You believe Life begins the moment the sperm fertilizes the egg, someone else believes it’s when the limbs form and another, when the child is born. We do not think alike, but many are on a bid for us to.
Now, I don’t have an issue with us viewing things differently. I have an issue with people forcing others to be like them and not respecting the fact that they have the right to make their own decisions, as seems to be the norm.
You don’t know nor understand WHY these ladies do as they do. And you don’t seem to understand that in fact, no, abortion is not a luxury. It’s not cute. It’s not like deciding to blow your nose. These women know there’s a baby inside them, a life growing, and choosing to terminate that for whatever reason is NEVER an easy decision to make.
Don’t you think there’s shame at some point,maybe? Indecision? Fear? Guilt?
I think a lot of people throw their judgement around because they think other people lack a conscience. No. We have consciences just as we have rational thoughts and emotions. And you..you are a bunch of cows really.
Being a “Christian” country I assume it’s illegal here for the above stated reasons. Hypocritical leaders are a problem. I promise you, it’s not that THEY don’t get their lovers to abort the children they make, they do..It’s just that making it okay here would anger the people and despite the fact that we know the people never really have a say in shit at the end of the day, we don’t make it happen.
I don’t understand why, to appear morally correct and “fair” to society, you want others to bring children into this world who may be unwanted, may grow up to be abused and will probably lack the things other kids have [affection, resources,etc].
Why force someone to care for something they view as an inconvenience? You know how people react in situations they don’t like..Plus, in an overpopulated world anyway, where people are starving and shit is just all kinds of fucked u…just, why?
People don’t think. Nor do they respect those who do.
It’s fucked up that a group of people who are only a fraction of our population get to tell us how to live and we think they’re superior to us.
It’s fucked up that there are women dying because a few still wanna hold on to their “morality”.
And the judgement..Is stupid.
The situation is sad.
