    If I don't want my body to be used to incubate a fetus, it has no right to my body. Period. there is nothing else to discuss.
    I don't believe that education is a different discussion. You cannot have the discussion without the education.

    Therein lies the problem with the attacks of misinformation and fake crisis pregnancy centers. Women who try to inform themselves find themselves at the mercy of some rather unfriendly gate keepers.

    Women who try to access BC pills or other items via a pharmacy that allows their pharmacists to practice sexism as a Do-Not-Serve option, find themselves at the mercy of some rather unfriendly gate keepers.

    It's all intertwined. Not only if I decide to get pregnant or stay pregnant, but also where I have birth and how, and who is allowed to attend.

    It's all about the ability to maintain legal and physical bodily integrity without the fear of the state, acting as a proxy for a church, intervening or even retaliating.
