Mind Your Business Not My Body

Now, I don’t claim to be a feminist, BUT as a women I can’t ignore how recent events have affected me emotionally. As a U.S. citizen, you go to school and learn about all of the events that shaped this country. One being a Supreme Court case labeled Roe vs. Wade. If you’re unfamiliar, in 1970 Jane Roe (Norma McCorvey) went up against prosecutor Henry Wade (the district attorney of Texas) to maintain the absolute rights of women to terminate a pregnancy at any time without any interference from state regulations. What started in 1970, “ended” in 1973 with the following outcome, taken from Britannica.com :

“Roe v. Wade, legal case in which the U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 1973, ruled (7–2) that unduly restrictive state regulation of abortion is unconstitutional. In a majority opinion written by Justice Harry A. Blackmun, the court held that a set of Texas statutes criminalizing abortion in most instances violated a woman’s constitutional right of privacy, which it found to be implicit in the liberty guarantee of the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment (“…nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”).”

Regardless of how this case reads, and what you may take from it, NO ONE has the right to tell you what to do with your body.
