I continually tout the need for us to be “cared up” for the revolution and one reason being that the President is at war with women’s reproductive freedom to choose. Family planning is central in many woman’s lives and having the ability to make the choice that works best for them is an act of self- care.
Eve shared with us earlier this week how one of her doula clients choice to give her child up for adoption was both challenging and relieving. Women also need to freely have the ability to choose abortion if they feel that it will add to the quality of their lives. Admittedly everything is not for everybody but we should all have the options to do what will make our lives richer. What happens when we reframe abortion as way that a woman chooses to take care of herself?
While the Presidents ban on funding support for abortion and other reproductive health options overseas does not directly affect those living in the US, there should be a universal fight to support rights that enrich a woman’s life. We know that an attack on Planned Parenthood is imminent so let’s not wait until the attacks are in our backyard. Let’s be vigilant in our support of those on the front lines, attend meetings, send letters, and make the calls. Reproductive Health is a human right and the ultimate act of self-care. Color of Change has created a way for us to get to work with a few easy steps. Click here to tell the democrats to stand up for Human rights and reject Trumpcare.
