This beautiful woman. This absolutely stunning, caring, compassionate woman made ONE mistake. She lived in a country where abortion was illegal across the board.
As a result, her husband buried her. Her family buried their daughter, sister, niece, cousin.
Because of a country where a fetus comes first, a woman’s safety after, she died. And that’s what antichoicers would have us be here in America.
A nonviable fetus that was literally dying and poisoning this woman as it did, killed this woman.
Look at her face. Look at this person. She was a person. She had a life and a husband. Their pregnancy was wanted, but the doctors told her the baby was dying. She was in pain. She died in pain and scared. Ending any chance for future children for her and her husband. Ending all the good she could’ve done in this world.
When you say there’s no medical reason to terminate a pregnancy, I want you to come look at this life ended by that mentality. I want you to see this woman, not a uterus, not a walking incubator, but a woman. With hopes and dreams and passions.
She is no longer here because of that sort of law. She is, sadly, the face of why your attempt at passing those laws will be met with strong opposition that swats you down every time.
Look at her face. Did she deserve to die?
Hell no she didn’t deserve to die and this makes me want to cry. This poor woman and her family. I stumbled upon this story. I know I don’t normally touch political stuff here, but this was too powerful not to pass on. I don’t even want to know the crap the antichoice crowd would say to this.
They haven’t said much of anything, to be honest. They can’t handle the truth when it’s got a face that’s staring at them.
When I brought this up to an anti-choice person, they told me things like that didn’t happen often and it was just a fluke.
Her death was a fucking fluke.
You want to know something though? A fluke isn’t all that rare. They’re not even on the endangered list. So calling something a fluke is pretty much a misnomer.
this hit me like a load of fucking bricks.
