Indeed, why ARE guys? Visualize if it were being them who had to have a being pregnant entire-time period, delivery the baby, and then be saddled with the excess weight and duty of bringing a kid into this globe. Think about how diverse this whole discussion would be.

WTF is going on, Texas? Your obsession with controlling uteruses and not really becoming “pro-life” in any other way is puzzling, and frankly, barbaric.

Nicely we guaranteed hope Texas (and any other again-ass-wards state governing administration who follows accommodate) is well prepared for a battle, since which is what they’re heading to get. We will march. We will yell. We will petition. We will connection arms with just about every other and enable women of all ages, having said that they need to have us to.

And guess what else we will do? We will vote, you misogynistic, 1950s-loving, vile sacks of flesh. And you will be gone. Really don’t get at ease signing legislation with your fancy pen, Richard. Since we are the upcoming. You are not.
