Since my last post about the far Right’s war on women, I feel like the outrage went viral. I mean, all the major media camps were actually talking about our issues, informing voters about political agendas aiming to suppress reproductive rights (for example: trying to require medically unnecessary trans vaginal ultrasounds before abortions and legislating out contraception coverage). But don’t get me wrong, we’re not out of the weeds yet.
Politicians across our nation are choosing sides. They’re polarising women’s health by turning basic reproductive health care into a politicised issue. Their anti-choice agenda seems to say ALL OR NOTHING: no abortion or no reproductive health care at all, period. Case in point: see Texas.
So, what can you do? How can you be part of this campaign to take back what’s rightfully ours? Cecile Richards (President of Planned Parenthood Federation) suggests: you have a say!
The “I have a say” campaign has been launched to encourage everyday women to make YouTube videos about why politicians should care what women have to say about their reproductive rights.
Social media has become a force to be reckoned with. I’m going to make a post about why the politicians that work for the public should not forget half their constituency (i.e. the female ones). This is democracy, I have a say!!
