Women Lost A Battle
My heart is so heavy. Planned parenthood swept this election. 3,322 abortions per DAY are accepted and condoned, and will be paid for by people who work and pay taxes. I cannot be ok with this. I have seen my own ultrasounds of the tissue that was a human being. Society names that human being other things; fetus, tissue, blob, to make it easier to get rid of. Fast. This is easy to arrange, and women are waiting and eager to help. Just get the procedure, worry about it later. Bury the guilt. Rationalize. Stay so busy at work, you don't have time or energy to think. Try drinking or pills to sleep better. Run marathons to sleep better. Obsess over your vegan menu. Maybe go back to school, get smarter, just stay distracted. That is key. Keep the radio on, the tv on, noise gives you something to listen to and focus on. But you still cannot hide. The back pain is a needed distraction, and so much easier to deal with than the truth. The headaches, palpitations, stomach problems... physical symptoms attempt to suppress the emotional pain, keep it buried, keep you from thinking, knowing, regretting. Easier all around. But the mom knows... deep down buried inside your mind and heart, that was life. Yes, the vote was a vote for revenge, just like the president said. Revenge for those circumstances, revenge for a uterus that makes you want a relationship with sex, revenge that he used your body for his pleasure, revenge that you feel you have to choose between your life and the life of another inside you. And that is the real war on women.
