Heart beat laws and abortions bans like the one passed most recently in Georgia should never be allowed to pass as they are inhumane, not only for the women in need of the abortion but for the zygote, or in some cases, embryo, gestating within her body.

If life starts with a heartbeat, then why didn’t those in favor of those laws exhibit the same amount of compassion for reform when Kendrick Castillos felt it necessary to sacrifice himself in front of an active shooter?

Or when Jakelin Caal Maquin and several other children have died in an immigration detention center?
Or how about when another newborn baby, with their umbilical cord still attached, is thrown away like goddamn trash because abortions are stigmatized?

Listen up, pro-lifers, you want people to carry their babies to term, you better be prepared to adopt said babies or push for reform to fix the dilapidated system that is foster care and Child Protective Services.

According to statistics gathered by Children’s Rights,”1,720 children died from abuse and neglect, and 71.8 percent of these children were younger than 3 years old. Nearly one half of children who die from abuse and neglect every year are under a year old.”

And while I’m getting you learned up about child abuse statistics, let me tell you why those stats are so high.

Stigmatized abortions.

Teens are going to find a way to terminate a pregnancy one way or another, no matter what society tells them, whether it’s being done with a coat hanger or carrying the baby to term just to stuff it in a garbage bag.

Let’s face it, that whole “abortion is bad!,” abstinence and “keep your legs closed” approach has never worked in the entire history of human existence.

If they want to have sex they’ll have anyways, that’s how it works with everything, folks.

So instead of stigmatizing abortion, let people know that it’s an option.

Let people know that their decision of undergoing an abortion is theirs alone

Abortion is already a hard decision to make, let’s not make it harder by shaming those who have to make that decision.
