Abortion in the United States – From the beginning of time, women have not stopped fighting to ensure their rights. They want to be recognized as men in the political, economic and social spheres. History shows us today that progress, especially in the area of women’s rights, is not irreversible. Quite the opposite. We can, in fact, make progress on rights and equality and, decades later, go back. So women’s rights are never achieved. They will, unfortunately, be acquired, and still remain.
The American dream is dead
This is why in 2022, humanely speaking, we still have to demonstrate and promote what seems to be obvious. Today, we can confirm that the American dream is dead. It is always the same people who are condemned. Always pay higher prices to those who are the same. It’s always women. They are still paid less than men. They are those who support a higher and crushing emotional load in society and at home. Today, therefore, we are politically violating their deepest human rights, in particular, the right to freely dispose of their corpses and their fetuses.
On the other side of the world, in a so-called democracy, by uniting the largest multinationals capable of creating the most innovative objects, women are condemned and their right to self-determination is determined for them. Speaking in favor of the so-called right to life, conservatives are condemning the most inherent right to women’s death. We decide for those who carry, but we do not condemn those who should bear the burden of fatherhood. Let’s deal. Women are certainly a vessel of life, but they do not design it alone. By imposing the non-right of abortion on women, the responsibility of men is again excluded. Excluded in the design. Excluded in progress. And to exclude them in this context means to protect men, to the detriment of women. Politicians, in the United States, confirmed this by voting against women’s freedom to dispose of their bodies and therefore to have abortions. Motherhood and the womb are tools, even objects, of political repression.
Who are the politicians to make decisions for women, what can they feel in their bodies and in their flesh? Who are they, to impose laws, which intimately interfere? Who are these conservative men who have no respect for the women who gave birth to them? Who do these men think they can survive if their mothers do not make independent decisions? As if life is an easy thing to carry, or otherwise an easy choice to make.
The ability to say yes, the ability to say no, should not be in the hands of people who have never experienced curation, medical abortion, unsafe abortion, childbirth or abortion. The power to say no should never be in the hands of people who have the freedom of the body. The power to say no should not be in the hands of people who never know what the power to take responsibility for your own choice is.
The American dream is dead. He died the day men believed they had body rights that would never belong to them. Banning the right to abortion is an official way to protect a woman’s body. Gugging to prevent shortness of breath. Hold your breath to stop life. To mock, good forever, to condemn.
Women and their rights are in grave danger
Banning the right to abortion means legalizing, not observing, illegal abortions, for which women, and especially from the most disadvantaged backgrounds, have to spend their lives. It is certain that this ban will not reduce the rate of abortion in any way, but will increase the number of illegal and unsafe abortions. The WHO confirms, “Unsafe abortion is one of the leading – but preventable – causes of maternal mortality and illness. It can lead to physical and emotional complications as well as social and financial burdens on women, communities and the health system. One third of all unsafe abortions occur in the most dangerous situations. That is, those who do not have adequate training in the area and those who resort to dangerous and aggressive methods, so banning the right to abortion means condemning a woman who does not want a child at the risk of her life.

Banning the right to abortion means pretending that governments are exemplary in protecting the rights of women and children. However, the United States is by no means exemplary in granting the right to protect mothers. A pregnant woman who works finds herself facing many obstacles and risks, to name a few, including her survival in the job market or even losing financial autonomy. The International Labor Organization has confirmed the matter. “In the United States, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 provides for 12 weeks of unpaid leave, which can be extended to 12 months.” (Source :). These demands only erode the demos-cratos of the word democracy, on which all our fundamental freedoms depend: the power of the people.
I hope I will soon be able to live in a world where comments made here are no longer relevant. I hope that my daughter, no matter where she decides to live, the state will support her in her right to dispose of her body. Forbidding the right to abortion means trying to destroy the jewels and precious stones acquired by the sweat of our eyebrows, which rest fragilely on the crown of every woman who decides whether or not to become a mother.
Forbidding the right to abortion means trying to destroy the jewels and precious stones acquired by the sweat of our eyebrows, which rest fragilely on the crown of every woman who decides whether or not to become a mother. But we didn’t say our last word. We lost a war, but certainly not a war.
