Voices: It’s just about life, right?

I’d like to thank the state House for passing the Abortion Restriction Bill. It’s nice to know that my legislators are ready to rush to my aid when my measly, pea-sized lady brain becomes saturated with estrogen and unladylike ideas, rendering me incapable of making sound decisions.

Since you folks are so concerned about the poor blastocysts and zygotes, why not reduce abortions by supporting comprehensive sex education and affordable birth control?

After all, it’s not about maintaining outdated, puritanical strangleholds on women; it’s just about life, right? Whoops, sorry! There goes my silly lady brain again.
