…ut there is no regard for the life and health of mothers in these laws. And as doctors, we know it. What these anti-abortion advocates really are is “anti-reproductive choice,” and on principle, I choose to call them such. I urge my fellow physicians to do the same.
Seems to me a lot of the people who are anti-reproductive choice and quick to tell women they may not have an abortion are the first ones to disappear when young women can’t afford to raise those babies.
We have far, far too many poverty stricken single mothers who can’t afford healthcare, dental care and sometimes even enough food for their children and the right to life folks are seldom seen lining up to help.
Thank you for this brave writing. ❤
