Abortion Laws Affect Mental Health

Abortion Laws Are Going To Affect Women's Mental Health

It's not like any woman is excited about getting an abortion.


Women's health is normally thought of as taboo and not talked about a lot. I do not consider myself a feminist but I am a woman and I am aware of what our bodies go through. In no way am I demeaning anyone else's bodies, but women are strong!

Think about if you were born and had no one to thoroughly take care of you. Some mothers who get pregnant are not ready to raise a human being and that's okay. They aren't trying to "kill off a baby" or "be selfish. They need some time, they might not be mentally prepared to have a child in their life especially if they may not have a father figure.

The women's reproductive system brought every single person into this world and deserves to be respected. If men have a choice to get a vasectomy or not, then women should also have the choices that they wish to have.

Nobody's life is perfect and sometimes people need to be cut a break. Everyone's mental health is important, and society has more pressure today than it ever has, with media, technology, etc.

Abortions should be thought about very cautiously, and not done for no reason. I believe that everyone deserves a choice in life, especially when it has to do with their own bodies. We have people who shoot and kill people with guns every day, but then women get bashed for "killing" an unborn baby.

I am not perfect and my opinion is only an opinion, but I believe in the women that continue to stand up for this. In ending, I believe that women's health should be discussed more and be more open. People should be more educated about women's anatomy!

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
