I’d like to trade the word policies for people. People who prioritize fetal rights over women’s rights. Because the bigger problem is that those same people who are quick to talk about the right to life are never (never!) first in line to provide care for the children who they demanded be born.

They expect women who already live in poverty to figure out how to feed another mouth. They expect women who were raped to look at their rapist’s child every day for the rest of their lives, but they are not standing in line to help.

My policy is if you aren’t going to help with the outcome, you don’t get a vote. Only the person carrying the repercussion gets a vote.
