“It is always Men who often know what is right for women and what is actually good for them because Women cannot think for themselves in a patriarchal society”.-Percy
The issue is whether you subscribe to having an abortion or not. The problem is that we are living in the patriarchal world, whereby men feel the right to speak on women’s issues. Furthermore, at the time where women’s issues are discussed, you find the very same many who are misogynistic and sexist having the answers to problems which women are facing.
Furthermore, people want to stop abortion, they should turn to methods that do work. These include comprehensive sex education and safe, affordable contraceptives. Unfortunately, as illogical as it sounds, the people who are most against abortion are also often most against these preventative measures. Most people who are against abortion will never even become pregnant. If a law would never, in any circumstance, apply to a man, a man creating that law is preposterous. It is akin to men creating laws that ban women from voting, owning property, or showing skin in public, such acts actually prove how patriarchy is roughly embedded within our societies.
Laws against abortion do not stop abortion; they simply make it less safe. The number of women who get abortions does not change when it goes from being legal to illegal, or vice versa. The only thing that changes is more women die from unsafe abortion procedures.
In closing I am saying, when you have a moral objection, don’t be of service to regular people who have different opinions and views.
