People should be entitled to absolute bodily autonomy. Every person should have the right to do whatever they want with their own body. Anything less than that, any violation or restriction of that right, is an act of fascism and tyranny. No one, no government, should have any right to decide for others what to do with their bodies or force them to do things against their wishes.
Pregnant people should be allowed to stop being pregnant whenever and for whatever reason they want. Abortions should be quick, easy, safe, and free on demand. Those first few features are a given; medical science is such that the procedure can be done in an afternoon without complications. Any dangers or difficulties around it only happen because of obstacles put in the way by malicious lawmakers and femicidal activists.
No one should have to provide a reason or pass someone else’s test before it is determined that they have a right to have an abortion. It is absolutely grotesque that someone would not be legally able to get an abortion if their pregancy was caused by rape or incest, or if they’re a child, or if fetal abnormalities meant that they could not bring it to term and it would not live, or their own life would be endangered by the pregnancy or giving birth. The fact that these exceptions don’t exist in some state laws is appalling. But it is appalling that anyone should have to request an exception to begin with. You shouldn’t need a reason or have to explain yourself. If your reason is just that you plain don’t feel like being pregnant, that’s good enough.
If you want an abortion, that’s your business. Nobody else’s. Contrary to the Roe v. Wade decision, it’s not even your doctor’s business. They have a job to do and if you want them to do it then it should be done. However you want it done, whenever, and for whatever reason, there are several services that can and should be readily and freely available at a day’s notice.
Human beings are entitled to rights. US citizens are entitled to rights. Clumps of cells are not entitled to rights, or life, or anything. They’re not alive, they’re not a being. They are not babies. They’re not citizens. Whatever constitutional argument one wants to make in favor of or against abortion, they should take a look at Section 1 of the 14th Amendment: “All Persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Pretty straightforward. To be a citizen, you have to be naturalized or have been born in the US. If you have not been born at all, you are not a citizen, you are not a person, you are not entitled to any of the rights or protections of the Constitution. Embryos and fetuses are by definition unborn. Any person, including pregnant people, who have been born, are. They are the only person in the equation, and the only one entitled to rights and protections.
Incidentally, men, or impregnating sex partners, regardless of their citizenship status and whether or not they were born, don’t deserve a right to decide the matter. No more than they have the right to cum on their partner and then demand that they never clean it off them, they shouldn’t have any right to decide whether their partner decides to clean their biological waste out of them. You don’t have the right to put a hat on another person and demand they wear it forever, let alone sticky smears of your DNA.
Under the right conditions, abortion is one of the safest and quickest procedures one can have. A surgical abortion, which involves no cutting and so is not actually surgery, in the first trimester takes just 5–10 minutes. Even a D&E in the second trimester is only about 20 minutes tops. There should be free walk-in clinics in every place where there are people with uteruses, where they can just pop in on their way home, get unwanted biological matter popped out of them, and go on their way. Abortion pills should be as easy to find as ibuprofen, and cheaper. Anyone who says otherwise is welcome to get a vasectomy, or castration.
