….yeah… All this.
My pregnancy with my son was totally uneventful but my pregnancy with my daughter was months of nausea, joint pain, back pain, rib pain, zero appetite which meant every meal was a forced meal, $85,000 worth of medical expenses associated with an early labor and a hospital stay, time off from work (obviously), a traumatic delivery that literally could have killed me, and complications with the epidural which resulted in migraines that kept me bedridden for weeks. Pregnancy can also permanently change your eyesight, your body shape (which then requires a whole new wardrobe), your skin and your hair.
Let’s see… what else… oh! The REALLY awesome stuff you can get from pregnancy: chronic constipation, incontinence, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, stretched abdominal muscles which then make hernias more likely, vaginal tearing, and postpartum depression! Woo hoo!
So FUCK YES I’m pro-choice. Making laws that force a woman to go through a pregnancy against her will doesn’t just make you an asshole, it makes you evil. ~JJ
