Another week, another attack on bio female bodies.

Another day. Another attack on people with uteri’s very lives.

The current joke of an administration has just announced they are throwing their weight behind a proposal to make it a FEDERAL CRIME to have an abortion at 20 weeks. For those who don’t know, right now, already? the only abortions occurring at 20 weeks or later, are because the fetus is DEAD inside the mother, or there are such major, life threatening abnormalities in the fetus’ development (hydrocephalia, for example), that it would not survive birth. Once more, for the people in the back: abortions at 20 weeks or later, in the USoA, only happen for medical reasons.

But the rump in the White House has just announced that he’ll support a FEDERAL LAW TO CRIMINALIZE…medically indicated abortions.

Yay.

Pro-life.

Except, lets also work really hard at taking away prenatal care, NICU care, birth control, regular pap smears and other preventative care, from biologically female. No more essential health benefits for you, women and trans men, because the white cis men making decisions over your health don’t need no mammograms, or any of that ‘female’ nonsense.

They absolutely require their boner pills, and those will be paid for. One guess why.

Sexism? Not here, that’s crazy talk. /s

So, the 20weeks abortion ban passed the House.

It may not pass the Senate–though with this Congress? It may.

It’s never a good time to talk about gun control, and talking about ‘small government’ is an excellent selling point; yet it’s always a good time to micromanage female bodies and choices.

It’s never a good or convenient time to provide for women’s and trans men’s comprehensive and proper health care, whether or not they decide to procreate; it’s never convenient to provide for the care of those children that will be born, damn their health or the health of the people who birth them (and that includes mental health issues from being forced to carry to term a pregnancy over their own judgement and will); it’s never convenient to protect those children after they have been born.

But by golly, we’ll make sure they are born!

Welcome to 2017 in the wealthiest country on the planet.
