We wanted assure that we would be able to provide assurances that [religious hospital] would continue to fully comply with ethical and religious directives -- and all the Catholic entities of our new organization would. But at [secular hospital] we would want to assure that we were also providing that full range of services -- we have tremendous women’s health services between both organizations and reproductive health services. But we, moving forward, would no longer do abortions at [secular hospital].
Here's what I'm tired of: Religion. Well, not religion, but religion being pushed at me. I don't shove my beliefs at anyone- in fact, my religion and spiritual beliefs are so irrelevant to anything I have to say, I don't even feel the need to talk about what it is here. I'm just so tired of everyone else having more control over my body and my rights than I do. It's my body. If I wanted someone else in my body,there's more than one orifice they could enter- with permission, of course- but as it turns out, I have husband who doesn't have control over my body and my rights, so I'm not okay with anyone else doing it either.
Politics and religion aren't supposed to be interchangeable. Remember, we have that whole "separation of Church and State" thing? I want that back. Let's get that back.
At what point is it too far? At what point can I get to say that my body is no longer willing to be a political statement or a religious bargaining chip? Is it Arizona declaring that pregnancy happens up to TWO WEEKS before conception?? Is it the house GOP blocking abortion for raped soldiers? How about a Kentucky senator who is trying to add conception amendment to a flood insurance bill? Seriously, let me know, because I'm currently pratiquer mon français to get the fuck out of here before it's too late to be considered a legal human being with the ability to procure a passport.
