Watching yet another series of mass shootings this week has me thinking: how did these people get guns in the first place? What kind of background checks did they have to go through? Did they have to hear a lecture on gun safety? Were they forced to look at dead bodies⠀
Depending on what state you live in, you might have to go through all of this and more to get an abortion. You might be forced to bury a bunch of cells you had removed, you might be forced to listen to a lecture by a doctor, you might have to prove that you were raped, you might have to read factually inaccurate anti-abortion literature. ⠀
Gun advocates so often claim that, “bans don’t work anyway so what’s the point”? Then why do so many people in this country want to ban abortion? ⠀
Our country is an amalgam of hypocrisies and selfishness. Will things change anytime soon? Probably not. But we will never stop trying.
