Remember when Georgia Representative Terry England said women should have to carry stillborn fetuses to term because he lived on a farm and watched cows and pigs do it?

That bill passed! I really wish there was an easy way for all women to evacuate states that create terrible laws like this. Also, an easy way for non-white people and their allies to evacuate states like Arizona. I just think this would be a really gratifying form of justice.

I cannot understand anti-abortion arguments that center on the sanctity of life. As a species, we’ve fairly comprehensively demonstrated that we don’t believe in the sanctity of life. The shrugging acceptance of war, famine, epidemic, pain and life-long, grinding poverty shows us that, whatever we tell ourselves, we’ve made only the most feeble of efforts to really treat human life as sacred.

I don’t understand, then, why, in the midst of all this, pregnant women ― women trying to make rational decisions about their futures and, usually, that of their families, too ― should be subject to more pressure about preserving life than, say, Vladimir Putin, the World Bank, or the Catholic Church.

"According to Holmes, when Fultz and his girlfriend, who was then 18, found out they were going to have a baby, she wanted to get married. Fultz refused, Holmes said, and during a church camping trip there was a "discussion about an ultimatum. Either you marry me or I&#8217;m not going to have this baby type of thing.""

Every 21 seconds, our next possible leader receives a crappy public education, misses out on invaluable opportunities due to his family’s indigence as a result of a health crisis, is forced to work two minimum wage jobs in order to survive and cannot possibly invest in the world around them, commits suicide because of the despair of being bullied because of his sexuality, is benighted by denialism and anti-intellectualism, or finds herself forced against her will to sacrifice her future for a baby she doesn’t want to give birth to.
