This Tuesday the Legislature will debate Senator Joni Albrecht’s LB 209, which she says is a “pro-woman, pro-information, pro-life, and pro-choice bill that will benefit all women who, after beginning the abortion pill process, want a second chance at choice.” What a bunch of bullshit. What this actually is is just more junk “science” aimed at further traumatizing women who seek a legal medical procedure that is none of anyone else’s damn business.
This “pro-life” bill is brought to you by the same woman who declined to vote on a bill that would require schools to accommodate pregnant and parenting students, but she did vote yes on a bill requiring that the Department of Motor Vehicles create a choose life specialty license plate, The “pro-life” license plate of course shows only a woman holding a child’s hand with no man in the picture anywhere because obviously women get themselves pregnant and it is their own damn slutty fault. If it’s tough to finish high school while raising that kid, tough shit. At least the license plate is honest I guess. Once you have that kid, you are on your own, harlot.
If you support a woman’s right to autonomy over her own body, not to mention actual science, it is imperative that you email or call your Senator before 5:00 p.m. on Monday to tell them doctors should not be forced by law to lie to women. If you can make it to the Capitol to show your support for women in person on Tuesday that is even better. And I don’t mean just the women. Men, we need you in this fight, too. You do not get to tell a woman what she can do with her own body, but you can damn sure tell men trying to do so that you support a woman’s right to make her own decisions. The Legislature is in session at 9:00 a.m. and Senator Albrecht’s bill is last on the itinerary right before they break for lunch.
If you don’t think it’s important to show up for women on Tuesday, boy do we have news for you. Men don’t even want women controlling other women’s bodies, they want to do it all themselves.
