I’m a bit late on the bandwagon about this, but i’m here. Here’s what you need to know if you don’t already know:
Democratic Senator Wendy Davis was seeking to filibuster (speaking to stop legislative assembly continue) a law that would restrict the access of abortion for women after 20 weeks. Basically, part of this filibuster meant that she had to SPEAK for 13 hours without leaning, sitting, going to the bathroom, eating or talk about something unrelated. She even wore pink sport shoes! 🙂 Obviously, my day was a hell of a lot easier!
The fact is whether you condone abortion or not, it doesn’t matter. This is a woman’s choice, her right to make a decision whether it is moral or not. Abortion is not something most people will take for granted.
Take a look at the case of Savita Halappanavar in Ireland, it made worldwide headlines. She was suffering from a miscarriage which led to her dying of blood poisoning. Her child was not going to survive, but she wasn’t allowed to abort the already dying child because the law would not allow it.
This isn’t a case of morality. The real question is why conservative, let’s face it, middle-aged Republican men are making decisions for women and their health. When is it okay for men to be making these decisions for issues relating to pregnancy.
Wendy Davis has allowed women to not be silenced, something uncommon in history so thank you.
