I made this before I heard the news that the Supreme Court is ready to overturn Roe v. Wade. But it fits my mood.

I’m going to get up on my little soapbox for a moment and say, if the folks who want to legislate abortion bans really wanted to reduce the number of abortions, they would spend that energy on women’s health, child care, and economic support – things that have been shown to actually help women have wanted pregnancies and bring them to term. The fact that those “pro-life” people just want to picket clinics and criminalize procedures tells me that their goal is not to save fetuses but to control women. (stepping down off my soapbox and thinking about what I need to do next.)
