Have you guys heard about the abortion issue that's going on?
Well, as we all know Abortion has been a contentious issue across the world, and the debate is only heating up...
Yeah, and it's forcing women to speak out for their reproductive rights!
Woah.. I never really thought about how important it is for us to speak up and talk about these issues.
Most recently, Louisiana signed a bill banning abortions once a heartbeat is detectable, known as a "heartbeat bill." If the bill becomes law, any doctor who performs an abortion could face imprisonment for one to 10 years and/or a fine ranging from 10,000 to 100,000 dollars!!!
It's extremely important! Not only does a complete ban on abortion drive women and girls to seek unsafe "backstreet" methods of termination, but a study found that women and girls are also more likely to experience short-term anxiety and loss of self-esteem, economic insecurity and poverty, and continued exposure to intimate partner violence.
It's important to be able to sit down and discuss this issues because these are things that have to be talked about and dealt with in a way that can benefit everyone especially the people who are affected.
