MY gay best friend informs me that these days there is a pill for men called ‘PREP’. It prevents them from contracting the HIV virus.
Similarly to the women’s contraceptive pill, it seems that modern medicine now enables us to partake in ‘free love’ without any of the nasty consequences.
This relatively old (more than half a century) development allowing women to avoid unwanted pregnancies makes it all the more absurd to hear feminists chanting such slogans as ‘a woman’s right to choose’ in protesting against the impending US Supreme Court’s overruling of the Roe v Wade verdict which liberalised abortion. Surely, women have even more rights to choose not to become pregnant than in any other time in human history?
What’s more, in the absence of the birth control pill and other methods of having ‘safe sex’, there is even something called the ‘morning-after pill’. So literally if there is a slip-up, a back-up option exists to run to the pharmacy and procure something to swallow the following day (or two).
Indeed, the spin doctors on the Left would like to have us all believe that actually women are victims who have so few choices over their own bodies without the loftiest court in the Free World mandating that all and sundry must have an on-demand right to kill their unborn children up until actual birth.
What is even more strange about the rabid hand-wringing ‘my body my choice’ brigade is that I will wager none of them would have so much have stood up for a second for my right as a woman to refuse an untested injection which could make me sterile.
Because it isn’t about the sanctity of one’s own bodily integrity they really wish to protect, but rather the mantras which have been drip-fed through by the cult they so desperately long to belong to.
A cult which glorifies women who dress up in black leather and starve themselves to look like drug addicts. In their world, the glamorous coat-hanger shape of a female who is so underweight she would never be able to give birth to healthy children, or the grossly obese ‘plus-sized’ model, is celebrated.
There are so many slogans to remember from the pro-abortion camp, which eerily fit so well to the movement against enforced Covid inoculations. The only difference is in the timing, I think.
If a woman does not wish to have a child, she can choose not to get pregnant. Like the Covid catchphrases, ‘Stay Safe’ and ‘Protect the NHS’ the best slogan is ‘Protect Yourself’ and ‘Practise Safe Sex’.
Another good one: ‘Choose Life’!
