After hearing today's statement regarding the Texas abortion law, I couldn't stop my mind from recalling a statement that did the internet rounds some months ago. It seemed right to me then and it still resonates today. When will we respect and honor a woman's rights over her own body? Here it is again: "
I want any young men who buy a gun to be treated like young women who seek an abortion," the quote reads. "Think about it: a mandatory 48-hours waiting period, written permission from a parent or a judge, a note from a doctor proving that he understands what he is about to do, time spent watching a video on individual and mass murders, traveling hundreds of miles at his own expense to the nearest gun shop, and walking through protestors holding photos of loved ones killed by guns, protestor who call him a murderer. After all, it makes more sense to do this for young men seeking guns than for young women seeking an abortion. No young woman needing reproductive freedom has ever murdered a roomful of strangers."
