I know there are a lot of men out there who have partners who've had abortions. It's time for you to speak up and be allies. Women don't get pregnant alone.
- 1 in 4 women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the age of 45
- There were 166,085,057 million women in the U.S. as of Jan 2019 (50.6% of the population)
- MILLIONS of women across the U.S. are, for a myriad of reasons, getting this medical procedure
This is a profound healthcare issue but it’s also an enormous class issue. Privileged people will still have access to abortions (as they always have) but POC mothers in poverty will be the most affected. This racist, misogynist bill is designed to keep the poor poorer.
The thinking is: if you take away a woman’s right to choose there is little chance of upward mobility so not only are they disadvantaged personally, they also can’t come for your seat in the State Senate.
