The Beast Has Awoken
Tonight marks the series finale of Game of Thrones, but no one is feeling more like Daenerys Targaryen just before going on a fiery rampage through Kings Landing than Women in America*.
*I have to use an asterisk here because for some reason, not all women seem to agree that their bodies are their own and belong to them.
You see, we seem to have regressed so much to the point that we've slipped through time and can't quite seem to understand that it's 2019. Several states have decided to take the most extreme route to getting the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, without fully understanding that the Supreme Court has to first agree to even take up the case.
By banning abortions at the first sign of a heartbeat and not giving any exceptions for rape and incest, it wouldn't surprise me if the Supreme Court refused to hear it and pushed to back to the state, which will assuredly find the ban unconstitutional. But this ban isn't just about "killing babies" (not a thing). And it's not just about declaring war on girls and women (because remember, a girl, A CHILD, can get pregnant). It's also about protecting that sweet, sweet white race. You heard me right. These southern states are still salty about getting whooped in the Civil War more than 150 years ago and can't quite seem to make like Elsa and let it go. They refuse to acknowledge that every single one of us, no matter our race or gender, has the same rights. They still believe that the white race is the superior race, and what better way to preserve that most perfect skin color than making sure white women keep forcing out white babies. Statistics show that America is on track to being more diverse than ever, and white supremacists can't deal with having the things they've been handed their entire life suddenly taken away.
The majority of Americans believe women should have access to safe abortions, but since we have a problem listening to what the people want and the folks in charge have to gerrymander and use that white male privilege to muscle their way in, this is where we are. "But the Bible says..." It doesn't. And according to the Bible, God loves abortions. He loves slaughtering actual babies and ripping fetuses from wombs. And even if that wasn't the case, the First Amendment prohibits religion from dictating anything involving government. Women are pissed. They were pissed on election night in 2016 because this is exactly what we said would happen and of course no one listened. You can have my
gun uterus when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.
