In the debate of pro-choice or pro-life I would like to introduce the notion of pro-woman. Ultimately as the person who would be the one to carry a fetus and give birth to a child you cannot compel or mandate that in all situations they should take it to full term. It is their body, their choice. Not mine, not any other person. Life is one of those things that is multi-dimensional and you can’t easily put it in a box. Women or girls who are pregnant against their will via rape or other means should never be forced to give birth.
Women are not mere hosts, to call them that is insulting. They are human beings who shouldn’t even have to fight for full autonomy over their bodies because they aren’t slaves. Sure there are lots of things to discuss and think about in this serious issue but keeping it simple to be mindful that women have a minds of their own and should have the freedom to use them to make choices that are best for them.
If one is pro-life perhaps they should think about the life of the one who is living and existing outside the womb. The life of the innocent isn’t always about a fetus. Just saying.
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. It is a focal point in the movement for women’s rights.
To all the women out there who are going to work, making a difference, creating opportunity for others, sharing, caring, loving fighting the powers that be and getting us to the stars and beyond I appreciate you. Without you the world doesn’t work. Thanks to the women in my life who have made me the person I am and for being a role model. The future is indeed female.
It might be strange for a man with no children of his own to write about the observation of The Day Of The Girl. But as a human being its a great way to encourage girls to dream big, learn much and to grow up to be whatever she wants to be. It doesn’t serve humanity to put up barriers for girls who want to achieve great things that will benefit us all. I think young women are doing amazing things and all they want to do is have fun in reaching for the stars. Give a girl an opportunity and they will seize upon it, the same goes for a woman.
It doesn’t make sense why women make life harder for other women. What’s wrong with sisterhood and being sure there’s a level playing field. This has future impact for girls who are growing up so fast and want to have a future of opportunities that their ancestors were not afforded. Women don’t need to be adversarial they need to band together. The future should be female!
