THE “PRO-LIFE” LIE

THE “PRO-LIFE” LIE

There are multiple accounts on social media intentionally spreading lies about women’s healthcare, reproduction, science and abortion. Abortion is healthcare and criminalizing and stigmatizing it kills women because pregnancy and childbirth are 14 times more dangerous than legal abortion and so forced pregnancy and childbirth can be a potential death sentence and therefore interfere with the woman’s constitutional right to life. Further, safe abortion is vital to the economic and social equality of the sexes and helps stifle gender inequality and injustice. As it stands, women are being stripped of our humanity to make us slaves once again and social media owners are in a position of power to help fight this. Abortion is a very personal issue to many people, but no matter what you believe, to subject any person to another’s arbitrary and personal beliefs is unethical and wrong. The Constitution is not neutral on abortion – it is pro-choice, and this is a democracy, not a theocracy. Women are dying all around the world, at 70,000 per year, undergoing unsafe illegal abortions because of the lie that abortion is murder. We have seen time and time again that the patriarchy – the global social system in which men hold primary power and predominate in roles of political leadership, moral authority, social privilege and control of property – uses religion as a means subjugate and disenfranchise women and inhibit them from living peacefully and autonomously. This must end.

Safe, legal, local and timely abortion access is required for women to lead successful, safe and autonomous lives so they can realize their full potential, which benefits society as a whole, and social media owners have enormous power in protecting women from the abuse and lies that get spread regarding abortion. Such “Pro-Life” statements as “abortion is murder” and “the fetus has a heartbeat at 6 weeks” are scientifically inaccurate and untrue and inevitably lead to the brainwashing of the public. This leads to unrest from the criminal rape of female bodies forcing us to give birth, which is always a potential death sentence. We are inching closer and closer to a fascist state where women are slaves once again, and criminalizing abortion access even further marginalizes women and people who become pregnant, an already vulnerable and historically underrepresented and oppressed population. Social Media owners can help stop this. Social Media owners can help stop lies like “abortion is murder” and “the fetus has a heartbeat at 6 weeks” to save women’s lives and stop the illegal forced government raping of our bodies at Big Religion’s bequest. Social Media owners have the power to block any accounts that spread these lies, and they should because these lies hurt women and lead to the inhibition of our right to control our own sovereign bodies and therefore to our deaths.

Women have a god-given right to control their own reproduction and decide what happens to their own bodies, as does any person, and ensure it is done with privacy. The Constitution promises us this right. Further, “Pro-Life” lies that kill women also prevent scientific breakthroughs related to healing nerve damage because it is taboo to perform stem cell research due to “Pro-Life” stigma. So this issue truly affects everyone, not just women. Abortion access is a human rights issue, not just a women’s rights issue, and Social Media owners can help women by immediately suspending any accounts which claim that “abortion is murder.” Free speech ceases to be free when it hurts people and leads to their death – it becomes hate speech, and that is what this is. It is misogyny. These accounts, and any other “Pro-Life” accounts on social media which are intentionally spreading these lies about reproduction, healthcare and science – they hurt women and all human beings. Social Media owners have a moral responsibility to prevent the spread of lies on their platforms which hurt people, and they can start with blocking and suspending accounts that purport the lie that “abortion is murder.”

Meow. Gender equality and justice. We never force men to reproduce, just women.
