Freedom Whore – Abortion, Shame, and The Right To Deny Me My Rights

E-mail Print PDF

Freedom whoreThere are innumerable contradictions and hypocrisies buried in Monday’s all-male, 5-4 Supreme Court decision on the Hobby Lobby, that gave corporations the right to decide what health-care options women are allowed to have.

This is the second of two decisions that have come down in less than a week that effectively remind us that the Roberts’ Court does not actually consider women’s individual rights worthy of protection.

The first decision, on buffer zones, told us that women seeking medical care can be shouted at, intimidated, harassed, and terrorized by “peaceful counselors,” a.k.a., anti- choice protestors, without the needed protection of a small area of sidewalk that at least kept women and clinic staff from being literally physically prevented from entering the doctor’s office.

 

I suppose there are people who will say that this decision didn’t really affect women’s ability to get care, and that these clinics have other means of protection at their disposal. But they’d be ignoring the reason the buffer zones were created in the first place. They weren’t there because women are fragile and moody. They were created because women were being spat upon. Citizens were being terrified and threatened and harassed when trying to see a doctor about a private health concern. And people were being murdered.

But that’s the protestor’s right under the First Amendment, I guess. Women’s safety isn’t really a part of that equation. Women don’t rate. Especially not when they’re getting an abortion. An abortion! The worst thing in the known universe a woman can possibly do! Besides having sex in the first place, that is.
