TRAIN TRAILS - MARCH 31, 2012
So this was more relevant 2 weeks ago when I originally drew it, but it’s still a big issue despite the lack of more recent news coverage. This whole thing about women, birth control and family planning is way out of control. Women are as human as men and we should all be able to make choices equally. No woman should feel ashamed to have sex, because most men surely don’t. Sex has gotten a really bad rap and I don’t understand why it’s like that when we have so many forms of preventative medicine.
I’m just going to cut it short and mention that tolerance is very important. We all make our own choices, and no one’s saying you should make the same as theirs. Anti-abortionists, practice your beliefs in your daily life without shoving the agenda in the face of everyone who decides they’re not ready for kids and want to have sex. The same goes for people who don’t mind abortion, etc. And if birth control pills were more easily-accessible for everyone (even if it wasn’t for sex— there are many health benefits like less acne and cyst shrinkage), maybe abortions wouldn’t be as needed. Either way, it’s not your choice to make.
There’s a thin line between fighting for what you believe in and oppressing others with your beliefs.
