This isn’t about politics. This isn’t a debate. This is about human rights.
If you take away a woman’s right to govern her own healthcare, you take away her ability to make decisions for her life.
These 20 women get it, and they’re tweeting about it unapologetically.
1. Yeah… WTF America?!
how did abortions get banned faster than assault rifles

2. So infuriating…
Women: can we have access to affordable birth control?
Women: can we have access to safe abortions?
Men: absolutely NOT
Women: okay can you wear a condom?
Men: … it doesn’t feel as good :/

3. The questions we never ask…
"what if the baby you abort grows up and cures cancer?" what if the 16 year old girl you denying abortion grows up and cures cancer? But now she can't afford to go to get an education. Instead she has to take care of a baby?? What about her??? An actual living human???????

4. I can’t even begin to imagine…
there's not a single thing in this world a male could experience that would even come close to the indignity of being legally forced to carry your rapist's baby to term

5. Absolutely heartbreaking
With all these “heartbeat bills” in the U.S., I keep thinking of this memorial to Savita Halappanavar in Ireland, who died of sepsis after being denied an abortion on the grounds that the fetus she was miscarrying still had a detectable heartbeat. “She had a heartbeat too.” pic.twitter.com/tMdG50FnXE

6. Not a bad idea…
Mandatory vasectomies until you want to have children.
They can be reversed, so.
Come on guys, Lets save lives! Whats that? A hard no? Why? Cause its your body and we dont get to make that choice for you? Ooooooohhhhhh!!!

7. Stop making sense!
What about guns?
Look, banning things never works. People will find ways to get them#AlabamaAbortionBan

8. Again, I can’t even imagine what this would feel like. So tragic.
Stop calling yourself pro-life when you’re prepared to have a child risk her life to give birth to a rapist’s baby. You’re all f*cking insane. https://t.co/BEyTHd4sGg

9. Oh, you know somebody. For sure.
1 in 4 women have had an abortion. Many people think they don't know someone who has, but #youknowme. So let's do this: if you are also the 1 in 4, let's share it and start to end the shame. Use #youknowme and share your truth.

10. Speak up people!
I know there are a lot of men out there who have partners who've had abortions. It's time for you to speak up and be allies. Women don't get pregnant alone.

12. The hypocrisy never stops…
Banning abortion is sexism at it’s finest. A man can have s^x and opt out of being a father. No ties, no obligations. A woman has sex, and then is forced to keep a child she didn’t want? Do it alone, when the man got a free pass? Ok.
— ?BigBrainyGothMom? (@g0ddamnitmama) May 15, 2019
all men who have benefited from an abortion in their lives should be speaking up more, no?
— janice (@rejaniced) May 15, 2019
14. Ya know… that could work…
Maybe if we start calling our body parts gun-sounding names like “revulva” or “shooterus” the GOP will stop trying to regulate them.

I think Christian moms who abort their 14-year-old LGBT kids from their homes should go to prison for 99 years.

17. Walking back…

18. They know. They just don’t care.
Do any of these knuckleheads realize that Roe V. Wade was enacted because so many women were dying from illegal abortions that it was a public health crisis?
