The Hurt of Roe Vs Wade

Updated: Sep 22, 2023

Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. This was decided in 1973. 49 years ago. 49 whole years that's not even half a century!


I thought my first blog would be a nice introduction about MTSN and everything we stand for but nope! My first blog is about how mind blown I am at this country we live in. "The land of the free" what's free here? We aren't even free to have a peace of mind. If you aren't able to tell that we stand for women equality and women empowerment by the end of this blog...Well clearly this isn't the place for you anyway.



This sonogram was taken on 8/10/2016. Now like a lot of new mom's I was over the moon excited about this little nugget that was growing inside of me (back story on how it came about later). Shortly after this sonogram was taken, I was sitting in the doctors office anxiously waiting for my doctor to come in and see me. She knew how hard I had been trying for years to get pregnant, she knew how excited I was to finally be. However, the look on her face when she walked the room told me immediately something was wrong. It felt like time had stopped, everything was at a standstill, her mouth was moving in slow motion and it felt like I wasn't comprehending what she was telling me. Until the end when she says " Mrs. Jones you can have a D&C or you can wait for it to happen naturally." To which I replied,"Excuse me?" It felt like all the air was knocked out of my lungs. She started again. " Your baby isn't growing. You are 8 weeks and there is no heartbeat. It's not uncommon for first time pregnancies. Your body fights it off...yata yata yata." I spaced out again and she came back around to the D&C suggestion. "It will be quick. It will be painless." I didn't even want to hear anymore. " I'll just let it happen if it happens." I clung on to hope for 2 weeks that things would change...and they didn't. Talk about the hardest loss I've ever experienced. I was fortunate that I wasn't in a life threatening situation. I was fortunate that this was a baby I wanted and tried to conceive. I was fortunate to know I had the option to have an abortion if I just wanted it to be over.


Not everyone is that lucky.


In 2022, we are still fighting for our right to make decision pertaining to our own bodies. Bodies that only we were born with and bodies that only we will die with. There are so many more things in life we should be fighting for but, fighting for the right to make decision over my own womb shouldn't be one of them.


What about women who don't want kids and the condom breaks? Because accidents do happen. Or maybe the ones who don't want kids and the birth control fails them? Or those of us that have been raped and can't bare to have the child of our attacker? What if it was a girls father? What if something goes wrong in a pregnancy and they HAVE to have an emergency termination? There are so many what ifs. So many scenarios. But guess what they ALL have the same answer. NONE. OF. YOUR. DAMN. BUSINESS!!!
