AOC drills down to the real reason behind these draconian abortion laws from the Right.

Ocasio-Cortez blasted the ban on social media, calling it a patriarchal attempt by “religious fundamentalists” to “own” women and restrict their sexuality.

“Abortion bans aren’t just about controlling women’s bodies. They’re about controlling women’s sexuality. Owning women. From limiting birth control to banning comprehensive sex ed, U.S. religious fundamentalists are working hard to outlaw sex that falls outside their theology,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

In a follow-up tweet, she said that patriarchy—a system of society in which men dominate [the supply] of power—was a “core element underpinning right-wing ideology.” Women who control their own sexuality, she said, threaten this male-dominated system.

“It’s a brutal form of oppression to seize control of the one essential thing a person should command: their own body,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Exactly!

I know that you all have seen me make this same argument over and over again, but it really does need to come from as many voices as possible on as many media platforms as possible. 

Women, especially young women need to be reminded of how hard people fought for the rights that they take for granted, and how easily those rights can be stripped away if they don’t take up the fight themselves. 

I think AOC is the perfect person to speak out about this because she is in the demographic that most need to hear it. 

However, we can all help by promoting this kind of thing on our social media platforms and pushing back on the lie that this has anything to do with saving the lives of babies.

    I know this much is true: she will not be receiving a holiday card from Sarah this year, or Fox, or the Vatican, or Roy Moore, or……………………..

    The bible is fine. But it is not translated correctly, and it is not alive. It is a history lesson, a literal history lesson, an ignorant literal history lesson. Simply dead.

    There should be a book called the things God did not say but man made up so he could be the boss.

    Notice too, how down thru history women gat stuck with the short end of the stick. These religions that are designed to bring women to their knees will hopefully one day be abolished back into the dark ages. Meawhile we fight, fight, fight.

    Not just women.

    This is about control. These Talibangelicals aren’t anti-abortion or pro-life. They are ANTI-SEX. They hate anyone doing anything they find pleasure in, that is natural and that doesn’t conform to their personal religious restrictions. If they had their way you would only have sex specifically to have a child and no other time. Once you’ve had children, then there is no reason to have sex ever again. Obviously no sex out of wedlock. This is the root of their hatred of anyone who isn’t heterosexual and practicing traditional sexual intercourse because any other form of sex does not lead to conception.

    They are also sadists. Hypocritically these anti-abortionist are also rabidly pro-death penalty. They’d rather go back to hanging or old sparky, even firing squad then lethal injection. They not only want the death penalty they want suffering. They are all into suffering. If they could bring back the inquisition, they would.

    They simply HATE. If suffering is involved they are ecstatic. Not only sadistic but also likely masochists.

    So yes. This is all about controlling sex. But it goes beyond that. If these people had their way women would not vote, they would not own property. They would take this country back to when women could not go out unless accompanied by their Father, brother or husband. They could not hold jobs. They could not have a bank account.

    These Talibangelicals would like nothing better than for this country to become Gilead and all women be as restricted as Handmaidens. Only it doesn’t end with women. They want to control men too, especially if they are GBTQ or Liberals or non-Christian, non-white, and non-rich. Control over anyone that doesn’t conform to their specific religion.

    And of course they also have to control the science they deny. It must be eliminated. Because science would tell them that there is no “heart” in a fetus until about week 21 when it has four chambers and enough muscle to beat. So that embryo might have a pulse but it doesn’t have a “HEART”beat until the second trimester. They don’t even know their own bible, which says it isn’t a baby until it draws breath, which again, would be viable about week 21-24 given today’s technology. In Biblical times without modern medicine, more like way into the third trimester. So they are ignorant of the bible and uneducated when it comes to science. And they don’t care.
