    notion of how to tell the truth about restrictions on reproductive rights and how to shine the light the humanity of the women who are fully alive. The insanity of our current situation is that the humanity of women has been overshadowed by the misogynistically constructed humanity of the fetus.

    In order to really switch our focus back to remembering the woman, we can use shock, we can use Socratic questions, we can use "separation of church and state", we can use the stories of real women who had horrific experiences and we can use the real stories of women who avoided horrific experiences. All of it puts the focus back ON THE WOMAN and away from the fetus.

    We're  fighting a war on women whose soldiers are using sperm magic and floating wombs to convince people that there's no woman in the equation. Anything that brings her back into the equation is essential.

    We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.
