Today abortion is safe, but it will only stay that way if it remains legal and accessible. … The bill’s sponsors presume that women need further political interference in their medical care to help them make up their own minds and to protect them. But Tennessee women don’t need the legislature’s “protection” when it comes attaining a safe and legal abortion. And when you take a closer look, it becomes clear this bill is a thinly veiled attempt to make abortion less accessible for women in Tennessee.
Tennessee politicians are pushing a bill that would impose a mandatory 48-hour delay for people seeking safe and legal abortion. Bills like these are opposed by medical experts because they delay abortions until later in a pregnancy, perhaps limiting a pregnant person’s options from a medication abortion (a safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy) to a surgical abortion. They also significantly increase the cost: Patients are forced to pay for gas, hotels, lost wages, and child care between visits to the doctor, all of which weigh more heavily on low-income people. But perhaps most insulting: Bills like this one assume women are not capable of making complex, informed, personal decisions about their own health and families, without politicians’ interference.
Bottom line: Tennesseeans are perfectly capable of making their own health decisions, and deserve to be able to access the health care they need without barriers, judgment, or stigma. Period.
Okay so after my dads passing my mom was told by the government that she would not be getting any assistance from them and they took my fathers 401k, social security and retirement money to pay for his medical bills. My mom is broke, she has no money and just needs some help because my dads funeral took almost all of her money.
Please help my mom out. Anything helps!
Also if you can’t give money please talk to your doctor about being tested for Stomach Cancer. Because its in the stomach it can expand and when you can detect it sometimes it too late and you basically die of starvation (that is the case of my father). No one should have to go through that pain.
Please take care of yourselves and thank you for reading this.
