This Pussy Grabs Back

The official Women’s March on Washington was held this past Saturday, January 21. According to officials from the organization there were a reported 673 other marches held all around the country and also in other countries. The Women’s March was basically a protest in support of women’s rights and a HUGE protest against our beloved President Donald Trump who was inaugurated the day before.

If you lived under a rock then you probably missed out on the fact that President Trump participated in some pretty lewd behavior and language when it came to women. Actually when it came to everyone except white men, but we’re talking about women here. He continuously insulted women (Megyn Kelly), many accusations came out of sexual assault/rape, and there was video recordings of him admitting to having his way with women and “grabbing them by the pussy.”

I don’t know about you, but having a man like this as president scares the crap out of me. Why? Well I am a woman, a woman that might one day have to make a decision pertaining my body, whether it be an abortion, the need for birth control etc. I hope that if that time ever comes and I find myself in such a situation, I have the right and ability to make my own decision and I am not forced to do what a bunch of old, white men think is good for a woman.

Just two days after actually becoming president, Trump reinstated the funding ban against foreign organizations. According to The Washington Post “in reinstating a rule first instituted by President Reagan, gave foreign nonprofits a stark choice: Stop providing abortions, or any information about abortions, or lose valuable dollars from the United States, the biggest global funder of family-planning services.” Basically Trump gave them an ultimatum, either quit it with the abortion stuff or get cut off.

Not only is the banning of abortion a women’s rights issue, it is also a safety issue. Just because abortions are made illegal does not mean that people will stop having them, it only means that they won’t do it the right way. According to Our Bodies Ourselves, “Estimates of the number of illegal abortions in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s range from 200,000 to 1.2 million per year. Prior to Roe v. Wade, as many as 5,000 American women died annually as a direct result of unsafe abortions.”

The Trump administration isn’t doing anyone any favors, especially not women. I think that if they want to ban abortion then they need to make sure that they also offer sex education classes, condoms, and proper birth control to limit the number of unwanted/unplanned pregnancies. But according to some conservatives sex shouldn’t be spoken about, yer everyone should know how to do it responsibly.

I truly hope that Trump makes the right decisions for ALL of his citizens. I pray for a good presidency, because I live in this country. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t vote for him or are completely against him, we all need to realize that at this point this is our president, and this man can make or break us as a nation.
