There’s a local murder case here in Charlotte, NC in which the prosecutors are seeking an indictment not just for the death of a 22-year-old woman, but for the fetus she carried because she was pregnant at the time of her death.
This is so going to be used to further slam abortion rights and justify that a fetus must be a person because they got a murder conviction for.
I just wince because they’re going to use the death of a pregnant person to cause the deaths and suffering of other pregnant people by taking away yet another option for them and providing nothing to ease their burdens.
FUCK NORTH CAROLINA. THIS STATE FUCKING BLOWS WHEN IT COMES TO HUMAN RIGHTS.
I constantly find it rather “throwing rocks in glass houses” that the U.S. wants to fucking lecture all these other nations on human rights when we do such heinous shit. We can’t lecture China right now. We’re doing the same thing on the different end of the spectrum. We’re telling pregnant people what they can and can’t do reproductively and forcing, by means coercive and unjust, for them to obey that command.
I just want to hit things with hammers until they STOP BEING SO FUCKING AWFUL. ARGHHHHH.
And now a fucking “vote for Amendment One” commercial just came on showing a bunch of romanticized images of white straight people’s families and saying that God created marriage between a man and a woman.
This is why I think vampires hiss as the cross. Because in the hands of those powerful enough to fight, it’s usually used as a decal and banner and sign of all the evil shit they wreak upon the Earth.
Seriously, though. Right now I want to get some bricks and set them on fire and launch them while they’re full of pepper spray and angry hornets until it hits all the fail and then drag the fail’s screaming, flopping meat sack, roll it honey and berries, drag it to a zoo and throw it into a bear enclosure. I HAVE SO MUCH RAGE I CANNOT EVEN EXPRESS IT. ALL CAPS ISN’T CAPSY ENOUGH RIGHT NOW. WHAT IS MORE CAPITAL THAN CAPITAL LETTERS BECAUSE I NEED THAT SHIT.
