What if, when a woman died during an unsafe #abortion, the man who got her pregnant died too?
2/8 No warning, just suddenly died? Had sex, got a woman pregnant, she died because of a coathanger abortion, and dropped dead immediately?
3/8 I bet we would have a lot more men screaming in the streets to keep abortion safe, legal, and accessible.
4/8 You know, the way women have for a really fucking long time while we’ve been written off as hysterical and reactionary
5/8 For the men out there: what if you risked a swift and sudden death that was as painful as what your partner had experienced?
6/8 what if you risked a swift and sudden death if your partner’s abortion killed her? Would you care more? Would you want safe abortion to be accessible and legal? What if your life depended on it? #keepabortionlegal
7/8 I picture the anxiety, like “oh fuck, what if she got pregnant, what if I die? When will it happen?” I dunno pal, maybe we should #keepabortionlegal and also start working on developing some fucking empathy.
8/8 This is the kind of life or death anxiety that we’ve been yelling about for decades. If you died because abortion wasn't safe and legal, would you start giving a fuck? #keepabortionlegal
