The Overturning of Roe v Wade and The American Dream

Bans Off!

I believe in the American dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. For me, this means having body sovereignty- being allowed to make informed decisions about my personal healthcare with a doctor and without interference from the government. I believe that most people in the world hold this viewpoint as well. This means that I have the right to refuse a procedure I think could be harmful, or an untested vaccine. This also means I should be able to have an abortion or have gender reassignment surgery, if I wanted. The decision should be between me and my doctors alone. In full disclosure, I have taken all the vaccines that have been offered to me, including my COVID shot and the booster because I believed that was best for my health and I made that decision with the help of my doctor. Supporting freedom of choice means protecting and respecting choices that you don’t personally agree with or would choose for yourself. I’m a strong cis woman, but I support other peoples choice to change if they want.

The overturning of Roe v Wade by the US Supreme Court is taking us down a very dangerous path that will allow the government to make decisions about all of our bodies. Biologically born women will be affected most, followed by those who identify differently than their assigned gender, and even cis men. No one will be safe when the government decides what is best for our bodies and we don’t have a say.

I will do everything in my power to peacefully protect and support all the people that this disastrous decision will harm.

Love one another and protect the right to be free.

    As shoild be. But, Right wing Christian Evangelicals do not agree. They have to rule the world. They don’t give s shit about others. They actually believe THEY KNOW BEST. Their best will destroy the world, not just the USA. They must be stopped.
    And the BEST way to stop them, and still be human about it, is to get out and vote, and tell the Republican Party exactly what you think of their Ultimate Plan to make womem chattel again, baby producers and nothing more, slaves to the white men who want to rule them.
