My Body, My Choice: The War on Women

I want to say this up front so that there are no misconceptions. I have thought of having an abortion before due to circumstances that were happening in my life at that time. Did I go through with it? No. Do I support abortions? Not necessarily. I do; however, support a woman’s choice to decide what is right for her, for her health and well-being, for her financial situation, and for her body.

my body my choice

Women have fought long and hard to have the RIGHT to choose. None of us should be able to tell any woman that they cannot do something based on our own principles and morals. Each and every one of us is accountable to our own higher power. Are you going to be standing there in front of my higher power with me on judgment day to defend my decisions? No.

This is not a religious debate, however. This is not a pro-life or pro-choice debate. This is about women having the power to make their own decisions and choices regarding their bodies taken away from them.

Social Media Support

Leslie Jones appeared on the season finale of Saturday Night Live and provided this in-your-face commentary on her thoughts concerning this issue.

Whether you like Leslie as a person or not (she’s one of my favorite female comedians for her truth and honesty), what she says is true and women need to be aware of this before we find ourselves without any rights at all concerning our own bodies.

Even this young man put his thoughts on the subject to music.

ELECTED officials should not be allowed to push their own religious beliefs on their constituents who elected them. Governor of Mississippi, Phil Bryant, admitted he was signing his state’s bill for his own religious reasons. He wants this fight to go to the Supreme Court because he wants credit for being instrumental in overturning Roe v. Wade.

Use Your Voice to Fight Back

You CAN make a difference. You can begin by writing, calling, emailing your elected officials. You can look up your Federal, State and Local representatives here.

Join a community or local group on Facebook that supports causes you are passionate about and get involved.

Be active on social media – as a blogger and social media influencer – I can personally attest to the fact that there is strength in numbers and you CAN bring about change using social media in your own community and nationwide.

Women, use your voice. Stand up for your rights. Don’t allow them to take away our freedom and our right to choose what is right for us individually and collectively.
