To my future daughter,
I'm sorry. I'm sorry that if you get raped you will have to carry the child conceived by your rapist. I'm sorry if you used protection and it did not follow through. I'm sorry that if you are given a child out of incest, you have to bring that child into the world.
I'm sorry that you're not given a choice.
I want you to know that I've cried the tears for you. I laid awake with my eyes open and tears rolling down my face knowing that my daughter will not be able to make a decision regarding HER body.
I want you to know that I feel awful knowing that one day if you need an abortion that it won't be an opportunity for you.
My heart breaks for the women of the future.
My heart breaks for the young teenage girl who gets pregnant her senior year of high school and she has no other choice.
My heart breaks for your future best friend who gets pregnant by her uncle and has no choice.
My heart cries for your generation of women who have no control over their body.
I'm sorry you were let down by men who don't understand some people CAN'T use birth control to avoid pregnancy because not everybody can handle the side effects.
I'm sorry you were let down by politicians who felt they knew what would be best for your body.
I'm sorry that you will not be able to make decisions regarding your body. I'm sorry you were let down, my love.
