We have at least 700 maternal deaths per year. Many of them are preventable with quality care and, yes, abortion. That doesn't include the thousands of pregnancy-related diseases, complications and injuries women sustain and are affected by for life. There are also over 400,000 children in the U.S. foster care system. With these statistics in mind, as well as the lengths desperate women have gone to in the past to save their lives through back-alley abortions before Roe vs. Wade made them legal, you might think that people who care about women and children would fight to make sure abortion is kept safe and legal.
Nope. People like Brian Kemp, governor of Georgia, care more about a potential fetus than a woman. They would rather a woman die, be financially stressed into poverty and risk a lifetime of illness, injury and other complications than have bodily autonomy. He'd rather a woman be put to death for having an abortion, even when a corpse has the right to say over what's done with its organs in the United States. He took a vow to uphold the law and yet passed this grossly unconstitutional law that violates Roe. Make no mistake, he wants it to go to the Supreme Court, as do his backwoods cavemen cronies who want to outlaw Roe, and as the courts get stacked with right-wing fascists eager to make The Handmaid's Tale into reality they have a good shot at it. God, can you imagine if Stacey Abrams had won the election instead?
Do NOT let this happen. Vote Kemp out. Don't spend a dime in Georgia while this circus is running and these women are put in danger and be vocal in supporting the people who have a uterus in Georgia. Share your actions against Kemp and his anti-choice agenda in the chat.
