I pass by anti-choice protesters about everyday on my way to work. I see all kinds of stupid, nonsensical, ignorant signs and I can't help but worry that one day abortion may be illegal again. Seriously scares the shit out of me. I pay $110 every 3 months for my birth control. My insurance doesn't cover the name brand and I am physically unable to take the generic for medical reasons that I don't want to get into. I'm doing my part to try and prevent unwanted pregnancy. If something should happen, I want the security of knowing that I will have a clean, safe facility to go to if I need help. I don't want women to have to resort to a coathanger or shady and unclean doctors for unwanted pregnancies. What happens if abortion is illegal again? Fucking nightmare. I can't even think about the repercussions without feeling physically ill. If you're pro-life, what do you think the punishment should be for
women who illegally have abortions? Should they get jail-time? I don't want my government forcing me to carry a child I had no intention of having in the first place and tried my best to prevent.
I don't really have time to write anymore about this issue atm, so I'll save it for discussion in the message boards. I just had to get that off my chest.
Also: Birth control and condoms should be straight-up free. Jus' sayin'.
