Today I Was Banned From Twitter

Today, I was banned from Twitter because someone reported a tweet in which I said “The anti-abortion movement in America is a war on women and everyone who supports the six week abortion ban can go fuck themselves.”

Apparently this is ‘abusive’ and ‘trying to silence a group of people’s opinions’.

You know what? I stand firm by my statement. My very first tweet when I am unbanned tomorrow will be a reaffirmation of my sentiments. I think they’re disgusting, vile, heartless, shameless, worthless pieces of shit who don’t deserve a platform to spread their vitriolic lies and anti-woman rhetoric?

Abortion should be safe, legal, and accessible. Hell, I even think it should be free. No woman who doesn’t want to be pregnant for ANY REASON should ever be forced to remain so. The anti-abortion movement only exists to punish women for being alive. I refuse to ever have sex with a man again because of the fear of becoming pregnant in a state that bans abortion. I’m bisexual so I have the luxury of going out with women, who can’t get me pregnant. But even if I was a straight, MARRIED woman, I wouldn’t touch my husband if he hadn’t had a vasectomy. Birth control of any form is not 100% effective and no woman who doesn’t want children should ever be forced to be pregnant. Hell, no woman who wants to adopt but never become pregnant should be forced to be pregnant. If you choose not to have an abortion, that’s great. But the CHOICE is what matters. You can be someone who would NEVER EVER have an abortion. But that’s your CHOICE.

And when I get back on twitter once the ban is lifted, you bet your ass I will only ever reaffirm that anti-choice supporters are the scum of the earth and don’t deserve the oxygen they are wasting trying to relegate women to property of the state of Georgia. Because that’s what that ban does. If you travel out of state to somewhere it is legal to have an abortion, you face charges of conspiracy to commit murder. By restricting interstate commerce, quite literally the law says any woman is property of the state.

Forced Birth Slavery is what these people are saying. Do I think they don’t deserve a platform to spread their lies and bullshit? Am I trying to silence them? Do I think they should be barred from public speech? Abso-fucking-lutely.
