Hot Tip: If You Ever Want To Bag An Alabama Lawmaker’s Attention Get Pregnant
Alabama’s new law mandating an almost blanket ban on abortion, the strictest in the United States, was passed by a group of exclusively white, male politicians. The Alabama law will disproportionately affect poor women and women of color because they are less likely to have resources to obtain an abortion out-of-state nor the in-state resources available to white, upper-class women.
The brazen attack on women’s rights, the constitutional right to privacy, is a full-frontal assault and everyone from Rihanna to John Legend and everyone in between has some strong feelings.
Rihanna opted for a Twitter takedown by coming for each of the 25 white men who took away a woman’s right to her body:
She published their pictures to show the true face of privilege: 25 old white men.
Roe V. Wade was a landmark decision in American history and it preserved the fundamental right to an abortion.
That decision stemmed from the right to privacy so there are obviously a ton of people out there who need to be reminded, a woman’s choice is none of anyone’s damn business.
Ava DuVernay is here reminding all of us, it’s abortion and women today, tomorrow it could be you and your rights.
“First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I’m not Jewish.” But who will be left to speak out for you if you don’t speak up first?
Male allies like John Legend are using their voices to call out this shocking attack on women.
Thank you, John, for speaking up and shining a light on this madness!
For real though, it’s 2019, how is this still something we are having to fight for?
We can’t lose sight of our shared progressive goals, because once we do we’ll find ourselves fighting to catch up.
I mean, is this our future?
It wouldn’t be the first time that fiction becomes reality. And it could happen a lot quicker than we expect.
Alabama’s anti-abortion law truly shows wear America’s priorities are at right now.
Even though nearly 40,000 people died from gun violence just last year. WTF?
And of all the states to pass this “pro-life” bill…are you kidding us?
This isn’t just an attack on women, it’s a full-frontal assault on women of color in particular.
When pigs fly right?
If all life is valued in Alabama then they should definitely start considering a few other laws…
The hypocrisy makes me physically sick.
The government spends more than $40 million a year to help men get boners yet not a penny to help at-risk women with their reproductive health needs if it requires an abortion.
The recent passing of Alabama’s law has inspired countless brave women to share their own abortion stories.
And the Internet is totally here for it. “We see you, we support you, and we’re going to keep fighting like hell for you.” 100%.
Stay out of our bodies!
Maybe these old white Christian men just get turned on by denying women their rights?
Nothing is hotter than taking away someone’s constitutionally protected rights, am I right?
So to the 25 white men who voted against women’s rights, here’s a tip:
Even though most of you are probably too old, please, for the love of Díos, go get a vasectomy!
