Fertility & Women’s Bodies – God vs Science and the Law
So many of the right wing protests against abortion, transgender, gay relationships have begun with ‘divine authority’ and ‘it’s always been this way’.
They say that anyone who thinks otherwise is an evil doer and anti-God. That the traditional family is all. Well, maybe. Or it could be a social control mech designed to keep white women ‘in place’- bare foot, pregnant and in the kitchen. Well at least in the home.
And there are a few things so-called experts and Christians use when in power, when they have money that deny what they’re saying:
- Artificial insemination (AI) and intrauterine insemination (IUI)
- In vitro fertilization (IVF)
- Natural cycle IVF
- Donor eggs
- Egg freezing
- Fertility drugs
Then there are the lengths gone to to reduce entire populations of people who aren’t in the dominant group:
Who don’t fit the standard:
and coercive contraception:
- The first large-scale human trial of the birth control pill was in Puerto Rico in the 1950s.
“long-acting reversible contraceptive” devices like IUDs and arm implants.
- Depo-provera/Norplant used by:
population controllers in Africa and the Caribbean and among those “caring” for native peoples in Thailand and New Zealand.
And when a woman can’t ‘breed’ to their satisfaction,
coercive hysterectomies or tubal ligations.
vs vasectomies which are less intrusive (also reversible) and solve the issues of rapists getting girls and women pregnant, and runaway dads.
…… coercive gender
If a baby is born with unclear genitalia, surgeries are performed to assign a gender.
coercive body image
breast and butt implants and vaginal reconstruction.
But anyways, it seems God has been side-stepped when it suits those in power, so why are they deciding when and if that baby is born? Why are they forcing the decision onto women?
