Womens healthcare needs to support a woman in every situation; child, teen and adult. There is no such thing as making some of her health situations legal and some of her healthcare needs not legal. You put her in double jeopardy the minute she finds herself with an unwanted pregnancy. You are telling women that her body in its state of crisis and she has no one and nowhere to go. She becomes illegal and her emotional crisis begins. Before you deal with the fetus you have to deal with the woman. It is like putting on the oxygen mask in an aircraft in crisis, before you can help someone else on the airplane.
If you are going to make abortion and getting the information illegal then you have to be ready to accept the thousands of fetuses in a healthcare situation that will keep it alive. A place where women can go and not be judged in the same way she can purchase the pill that induces abortion. A medical care center that will take the fetus at the earliest stages of development and later trimesters would be needed. Who is ready for that kind of responsibility?
If contraception were illegal. The community, state and federal government becomes involved in taking on the responsibility in helping the child to be raised to an adult. Some adults call this a burden. Others call it the way of humanity and the world naturally. The truth of the matter is women of all ages can find themselves pregnant. Not all relationships work out the way people think they will, What is said and done in the heat of a hot moment quickly evaporates and dries up when the two have created one baby. It happens all of the time. It is a fact of life. 99-percent of the women who find themselves with an unexpected pregnancy did not plan for it.
Most people call it the woman’s responsibility when she becomes pregnant. Unless you have been in this you do not know what happens and the crisis about to be. If you want to make a woman and part of her healthcare illegal then you need to make men a part of that quotient. The woman did not find herself in this position on her own. Taxes that pay for the healthcare of women is just one way to get the men who run to be accountable for the children who are born and who are not born to meet this situation. The burden of the created fetus needs to be a topic of intelligent discussion.
If women and children on foodstamps and free healthcare and money is seen as deplorable that can change. Those conditions have never fully been addressed by men in society so it has been an issue for women to deal with and is argued about in the government of all places. A situation that no one wants to talk about in public becomes public and a matter for the community eventually. Men will say many things to a woman to get her to have sex with him. Men, of all ages and economic-socio backgrounds, will say they will be there and then run. It’s a fact as old as birth itself. It is time to stop pointing the finger at women, blaming only women, governing only her body. It is not working.
A woman finds she has no ground to stand on. It is a public stoning in a sense. It is a shaming that men avoid altogether. They run like hell for a reason. No one would put themselves in the position on purpose. The serious situation of addressing women’s full healthcare needs a serious attention and full discussion. Until that time everyone needs to back off the pressure, blame and open up the way for women to do what they need to do for their health.
It has never been a matter of what anyone believes in religiously. It is a matter of fact. People are passionate about what they believe in. What consummates between a man and a woman, teen or child is not always taken as seriously or passionately where the end result is in sight. A woman’s health care that is for her fully is legal; it is in a place where she can get to it as simply as any man can get to his health care without protest or shaming. Life happens to everyone no matter your age, race or socio-economic background even with the best intentions, ready or not like it or not.
It is time for the protestors to go home with their signs, pictures and humiliation tactics. Protestors with information to not seek abortion do not need to be there. A woman knows what she wants to do for herself. Sometimes she needs more information but not in that openly hostile environment. Can we talk openly now about tipping the scales back for balance?
