A ten year old girl in the state where I live was raped, impregnated, and denied an abortion.
In the state where I live. I pay taxes here. They take our money to pay their salaries. And denied an abortion to a child.
She was told to view it as an opportunity.
10 years old. Ten fucking years old. A baby.
A pregnancy would destroy a 10 year old child’s body. A pregnancy could end the life of a ten year old
Our granddaughter, Madelyn, is 11 years old. She played Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors. She is brazen and smart and funny. She survived the loss of her sister and continues to survive the arrival of her new baby sister. (Of course she loves her little sister, but baby girl is a handful).
Madelyn is still very much a child. And a full year older than the baby girl from Ohio.
She is in peril. My sweet, beautiful granddaughter who has been through so much, is in peril.
As is every other human in the US with a working uterus.
The 10 year old from Ohio went to Indiana for an abortion.
It only worked because Indiana’s total abortion law just isn’t in effect yet.
Once the abortion ban becomes federal, and it fucking will, then rapists will be able to choose who is forced to carry their child.
All those years that I railed against the former president? Doesn’t mean shit now.
This is what they were aiming for. They will not stop with subjugating women.
We are all in peril.
Randy and I are writing postcards to voters. I send money that I can to candidates who will make a difference.
We are all in peril.
If you can, please support Tim Ryan from Ohio. Because for all that is fucking holy, JD Vance cannot win a seat in congress.
I hope you are all staying safe.
Please vote in the midterms. Please.
A young woman in Missouri died from an ectopic pregnancy. More women will die.
Don’t give up. They want us to give up. We can’t. Please fight until we can’t fight anymore.
Also, all the people who told me I was being an alarmist back in 2016? They are all cordially invited to kiss my ass.
Buy pregnancy tests. Buy Plan B. Keep them safe. They will be needed.
