The Supreme Court Overturned Roe v Wade and I Fear for My Daughter

All day. I’ve spent all day trying to find the right words to say.

Earlier this morning, The Supreme Court Overturned Roe v Wade. It felt like a giant punch in the gut and I’ve had the hardest time catching my breath after it.

If I could describe my feelings into one word, it’d be: FEAR.

I fear for my daughter.

I fear for daughters everywhere.

I fear for all mothers and future generations of mothers.

I fear for women in general.

I fear the world my daughter is being raised in. A society that believes a woman’s body and what goes in, on or around it, isn’t her choice.

Roe v Wade protected so many rights for women and after today, that is just gone.

I fear we will be seeing more news reports of suicide, mother’s murdering their babies and even women dying at the hands of unregulated abortions because they have no other option (or at least feel like they don’t).

What happens if my daughter is raped? She could face being charged criminally if she doesn’t carry that baby to term.

What happens if my daughter suffers a miscarriage or has a life-threatening condition during her pregnancy? She could faced being criminally charged if she doesn’t carry that baby to term.

There are so many reasons why this is wrong.

I am disgusted, saddened and angry and I have no clue how we fix this, but we just have to.

Moms hug your babies tight because this is an awful time in history.
