the battle for control of your uterus has begun

Sex, autonomy, contraception, abortion. If you are a woman, there is no issue more important right now. It's a painful, gut-wrenching, horrible issue. And we are embroiled in the Mother of all Battles about it right now: the battle over who gets to control a woman's Uterus. Imagine if you can, a similar circumstance, for our male counterparts. You can't... can you.

The first thing we need to do as women, regardless about what we may believe we feel about this issue is to inform ourselves. Let's not kid ourselves about what is going on right now in this country. If you are a woman, decisions are being made about your body right now and your permission and agreement about that is not of any interest to those who would like to implement changes.

And while you are at it, please read The only moral abortion is my abortion: When the Anti-Choice Choose

The hardest thing to read about may be the most important. Maryscott Oconnor's dkos diary Abortion: Intact Dilation & Extraction.
