Vote for Fertility Rights this Election Day
You're going out to vote today.
Seriously, you weren't going to?
Because all the candidates are full of s**t? They’re all the same? They’re all liars?
Oh. You sure about that? Have you looked at their records? At the issues that are important to you? Are you sure that they don’t take a stance on any of those things, like fertility rights? Have you looked to see how each political party has stood up for the things that you care about? You sure they’re the same?
I’m not telling you how to vote today. Vote for whoever you want to vote for. I know I am. And that’s what I can do today. Vote, one vote, for the candidate of my choice. Even if he/she is only the least bad of the bad.
Women’s Reproductive Health and Rights
Because there are differences. And there are certainly differences when it comes to women’s reproductive health and rights. Big differences. Very big, even vast, differences.
Fertility is a part of women’s reproductive health. Fertility treatment is being threatened all over the country, most prominently in North Dakota and Colorado. Maybe more insidiously in your state. Vote with caution for anyone who wants to restrict abortion. Like it or not, abortion and fertility treatment have become linked in the political worlds. Don’t like it, but please understand that a candidate that is anti-abortion will protect your embryos with the same zeal. Which may mean not being able to produce more embryos than you can transfer in that cycle. Which could mean not being able to produce embryos at all, eventually.
If you weren't going out to vote today, go out to vote today.
