This legislation that was passed in Oklahoma today makes me sick and enraged and so sad. I can’t believe in this day and age that laws like this are being passed. 😡😡😡😡😡
“The Oklahoma state legislature has passed a bill that would criminalize abortion procedures in the state. According to the language of the bill, anyone who is found to have performed an abortion — except in instances to save the life of the mother — will be found guilty of a felony and can receive up to three years in prison.”
This disgusts and baffles me. There is more to abortion then the knocked up teen down the road. 🤔It’s called “termination for medical reasons”, and it’s the other side of abortion that you never hear about. It’s the other face of abortion that the media/govt leaves out of their arguments and their propaganda. 🤔Until you’re in a position to receive news that your unborn child will eventually die, or live an excruciating suffering life of pain and misery then be careful to judge! This child that you already loved so much ❤️, wanted so badly 😰, prayed so desperately for🙏🏽. To add insult to injury to a mother who has to make a horrible choice of bringing a very ill child into the world and potentially very badly affect the rest of their family and their children and then make them criminals who are jailed is AWFUL!!!! Having to make a heartbreaking choice of ending a much wanted pregnancy is punishment and jail time enough. It is tram attic and will never leave a persons mind and heart. It is beyond comprehension that some government official thinks they know more about what goes on behind MY closed doors of MY HOME. How dare they make decisions on what’s best for my family! How dare they make judgements and rulings, are they the ones raising these suffering children? Are they the ones paying the millions of dollars in medical bills?! My story is for another day and another time but I will never EVER be made to feel ashamed or feel like a criminal for choices that I had to make. There are so so soooooo many different reasons to terminate a pregnancy, so many factors that’s it’s ludicrous to have a sweeping bill across a state. This is NOT A ONE SIZE FITS ALL kind of thing!
As someone who has been in this life changing and traumatizing position I feel like it’s my responsibility to spread awareness and show the other face of abortion. I was one of those people that tsk tsked abortion because I was uneducated and didn’t know there was so much more than what we hear. The worst decision you could ever imagine in your life and then some. This is a decision between my husband, my doctor, God and myself. So next time you hear the word abortion and you think of a lazy teen using it as a birth control after the fact, think about the thousands of women AND MEN who’s hearts were torn apart, devastated and ripped to the core, the devastated siblings who have had to be told that they are no longer getting a new brother and sister, and these poor angel babies who’s lives had to be ended out of the DEEPEST LOVE AND RESPECT. It is the ultimate sacrifice made out of love and after many long deep thoughts . And then there’s the happy endings that hopefully come later on, these are called rainbow babies 🌈👶🏻and I have one named Skyler and he is my heart and soul and his angel sister will forever be in his life watching over him. To be continued…😕
