Recently, the Virginia legislature has passed a bill that sets the beginning of ‘personhood’ at conception. It goes on to rule that all abortions after conception are effectively illegal within the state of Virginia. This not only disgusts me, but it honestly shocks me. It shocks the fuck out of me because this bill even saw the light of day. It shocks me that well, this even happened in the first place. No, this is not a generic pro choice post. This is a common sense post. I’m beyond annoyed, I am beyond angry, I’m simply at a loss of words. When a government begins restricting the rights of citizens it vows to protect, there is something seriously wrong. Not only with said government, but with society as a whole. You can argue being pro life and pro choice all day long, but at the end of the day you can hold respect for one another. As a human being, I cannot sit by and hold respect for the people who sleep at night knowing they have imposed their unjust will upon women. They have not only imposed their will upon women, but they have stripped women women of their basic rights. This is not entirely about abortion. You are so very wrong if this is simply about abortion. This is about the right women have to their bodies. This is about other human beings sitting by and watching this happen. This isn’t about being pro choice or pro life anymore. This is about being a decent human being, and about what it means to be American. Tell me, is it American to tell women “no, you don’t have control of your body”? Is it American to tell them “no, you have no right to what happens in your life”? I don’t care if you’re a boy or a girl. I don’t care if you’re twelve or sixty years old. When people so far as to forcefully strip American citizens and American women from the rights to their own bodies, something has gone terribly wrong. This is no longer a political issue, nor should it have ever been. This has become a humanitarian issue. When politicians see women’s bodies and women’s lives as something to vote on, something has to change, and something must change very soon.
