Nevermind that these abortion clinics provide crucial services other than abortion.
Low-cost std tests, birth control, pap smears, pregnancy tests and sex. sigh.
This is by far the stupidest decision ever made.
actually new mexico has the nations highest teen…
Abortion clinics don’t just offer abortions. They offer multiple sex related/education services.
This isn’t about Pro-life vs Pro-choice, this is about the government regulating what women can and can’t do with their bodies. These services should be available to whomever chooses to use them.
And believe me, after being a foster family and working in a homeless shelter for teens and young adults where 80% are children that have aged out of foster care and thrown out on the streets, having an option isn’t a bad thing. Texas also believes in abstinence only sexual education, clinics such as planned parenthood are the only facilities that offer proper sexual education and gives teens birth control, condoms, and other contraceptives and aid. These options should be available to whomever wants to use them. Because it is peoples right to choose what they want to do with their bodies. And thank you for the New Mexico fact, all the reports I’ve read said Texas. Maybe it’s just a state thing.
Look the bottom line is that Texas should not have the ability to take the right of women being able to get abortions if they choose. Everyone can sit there and tell your exception stories but in reality most people don’t have the funds to take care of the child and then what is worse the abortion? or having the child and it possibly go hungry? Adoption isn’t a better option either ya you can do that but then the child will feel unwanted or always wonder why you didn’t keep them. Again if you are adopted and you are an exception to what I’m saying I’m happy for you but in Texas the amount of foster kids that age out and end up living on the street is ridiculously high. So to reiterate what I’m saying …WOMEN SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE!!!!
repeat after me
if a bi, pan, or asexual person dates someone of the opposite gender
IT DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE STRAIGHT
