What You Can Do to Fight Anti-Abortion Legislation

Lately, the news has been inundated by the anti-abortion laws that are being passed in several states across the United States. Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi and Ohio all passed “heartbeat bills” that make abortions after six to eight weeks a crime. Utah and Arkansas both voted to limit abortions to the middle of the second trimester. The worst of them, perhaps, is Alabama’s intensely restrictive bill. The bill, which has been signed by Governor Kay

Ireland is Finally Voting For Abortion Rights

This morning, 25th of May, ballots in Ireland finally opened, giving the country a chance to change its controversial abortion laws once and for all. The referendum will last for the whole day, until 10pm, and around 3.2 million people are registered to vote; 100.000 extra people have been added ahead of the vote. Ireland’s legislation on termination of pregnancies have been defined as some of the strictest in the developed world. These are ruled by the Eight Amendment, which has

How Pro-Life Takes Away Women’s Rights

“Pro-life” means a lot of things to a lot of people. But as we see it today pro-life is supporting Trump’s intention of making abortion illegal. People side with being against abortion because they see a fetus that’s even a few weeks old, as a child who deserves to be born. But not everyone sees things this way and not every woman wants to be a mother. There are alternatives like adoption but most of

It’s Time To Talk About Male Circumcision

When the topic of genital mutilation comes up, most people’s minds jump to female genital mutilation in developing countries. It seems like more and more people are failing to realize that genital mutilation isn’t as foreign as we’d like to think; it is happening close to home, every day. Discussing infant male circumcision might make people uncomfortable (and it should, it’s medieval) because it is seen as a “personal choice”… yet it’s not. The individual doesn’t make

What Could The Nomination of Neil Gorsuch To The Supreme Court Mean For Women’s Reproductive Rights?

Last night, Donald nominated Neil Gorsuch as a Supreme Court Justice. There has been a lot of talk and conspiracy aroud this pick and what it could mean for the country. This pick has the potential to affect the lives of everyone in the US, and especially today’s youth. Teens will be growing up under the influence of this new justice and by what Trump has said in the past, so we have justifiable reason

Pro-Choice Does Not Mean Pro-Abortion

Kindergarten all the way to graduating high school, the education I received maintained something in common, it always came from a Catholic private school. Obviously while attending a school which has its roots coming from religion, the beliefs are imposed on you. When I was in junior high, I remember learning a unit on abortion, except we didn’t really learn much. Instead, we read stories of girls who had abortions, and were then taught that

The Irish Movement to Reclaim Women’s Rights

The 8th Amendment of the Constitution of Ireland acknowledges “the right to the life of the unborn, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother.” In translation, this means that abortion is banned unless the mother is under immediate risk of death. While the guarantee of the protection of the mother’s life seems to put the pregnant woman under consideration, it is but a thinly veiled guise that provides no regard

If My Mom Didn’t Have An Abortion, I Wouldn’t Be Here

Lets take it back to the 90’s. My mom was just about 22 years old. She had been in a long term relationship with an older guy all throughout high school, but it ended a couple years beforehand. She moved on to another guy, who was at first seemingly innocent. But as most 20-something year old’s back in the day, partying was her thing. She didn’t have a lot of money, she didn’t have a
