I don’t have the answers, only a lot of anger unfortunately.
I think there are a lot of people who don’t normally get involved in politics or causes. They are just trying to survive. Not wanting to make waves. Or they just don’t know what they don’t know.
I’ve kept my head down for a while now, just trying to get through today. It is past time for me to start participating in the conversation and take action on these important issues. Votes matter, especially in local elections.
Your voice matters, because when you stay silent, crazy shit starts happening and you wake up to find that there are batshit nutjobs in government who care more about guns and promoting conspiracy theories then they do about your right to make your own health decisions.
A country where a 10 year old abuse victim can be forced to have a child? Not only did that poor kiddo endure the physical and mental abuse of rape, in this new world order she would have to endure one of the most physically and mentally challenging experiences a woman goes through? Then who is going to care for her or the child afterwards? The same folks who don’t want to support social services and support for families (unless they are attached to a church with strings included)? (10-year-old abuse victim had to travel across state lines for an abortion)
jesus fucking christ. The insanity of all of this is mind boggling to me. There is so much hypocrisy taking place. It’s so frustrating and I need to take a moment to BREATH 🤬🤬🤬
Okay. Sorry about that.
Here’s a great organization that promotes the constitutional principle of separation of state and church. I’m not a member but they are a great resource for news and promoting ways to take action.
Freedom From Religion Foundation: The history of Western civilization shows us that most social and moral progress has been brought about by persons free from religion. In modern times the first to speak out for prison reform, for humane treatment of the mentally ill, for abolition of capital punishment, for women’s right to vote, for death with dignity for the terminally ill, and for the right to choose contraception, sterilization and abortion have been freethinkers, just as they were the first to call for an end to slavery. The Foundation works as an umbrella for those who are free from religion and are committed to the cherished principle of separation of state and church.
