For the past 50 years, Roe vs Wade had placed an unfair expectation on women to alter, suppress, and destroy the normal healthy functions of her natural body, telling women what to do with their bodies through pills, devices, and invasive surgeries in order to conform to definitions of success in society and the workplace based on male norms. It also furthered a culture of men using, abusing, and objectifying women for sex on demand without consequence. Now, after 50 years of scientific and medical advancements in women’s healthcare, perhaps we can finally come together to reevaluate our understanding of women’s rights by instead shifting the expectation to employers, universities, and society to be the ones to conform to better support the normal healthy functions of women’s natural bodies, so that regardless of differing opinions, no women ever feels that she has no choice but to turn to the unfair choice of abortion to achieve her goals.
Destroying a normal healthy function of a woman’s natural body is not healthcare, nor should it ever be considered an advancement of women’s rights. While organizations that profit and benefit from abortion can’t even define what a woman is — and other corporations are now paying for their female employees to travel for abortions just so she can clock more working hours for them — our organization is recognizing the unique value of every woman by putting policies in place to accommodate her normal healthy body such as paid menstrual and menopausal leave for female employees, who shouldn’t be told to take sick leave for something normal and healthy. We’re welcoming and supporting open breastfeeding, pumping, and child watch in the workplace, with additional nursing and rest areas, as well as child watch for employees and clients alike, while ensuring better support for paid maternity absence. This should b e the norm, so that no woman ever feels conflict between being a woman and being successful. We call upon all pro-life employers to lead by example and do the same, and if pro-choice employers and educational institutions are truly pro-woman, they should do the same as well.
Sadly, due to political misinformation and misunderstandings, some pro-abortion groups are calling for and committing acts of vandalism against wholistic women’s centers, which is truly an egregious injustice against the thousands of women who gratefully rely on this free care, financial and material assistance, and education and support, from pre-pregnancy to years into parenting or adoption, as well as support through the difficulty of pregnancy loss. Now more than ever, we believe every person deserves excellent healthcare, and are committed to providing and connecting women to free, quality, and compassionate care that recognizes and affirms her natural, healthy, and beautiful superpowers of fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and motherhood, without shame or judgement, to truly help moms be heroes.
View of Texas & New Mexico Law Post-Roe
We see the overturn of Roe vs Wade, specifically in Texas, as an opportunity for both sides to come together and finally do more to support women through healthcare, policies, and employee benefits that actually accommodate and celebrate the normal, healthy functions of a woman’s natural body, because no woman she ever feel that she has to choose between being a woman and being successful. However, in state of New Mexico, unfortunately organizations that profit from abortion are still reinforcing the narrative of Roe vs Wade, telling women what to do with their bodies, that she needs to alter, suppress, and destroy the normal, healthy functions of her natural body through traumatic chemical abortion pills or invasive surgeries up to the day of birth in New Mexico, in order to be successful, and we don’t believe that destroying any part of a woman’s body is healthcare nor an advancement of women’s rights.
Local Impact on Guiding Star Pregnancy Health Center
The overturn of Roe vs Wade has impacted our clients because unfortunately there is much political misinformation surrounding this ruling. For instance, the rare and life-saving treatments for ectopic pregnancy has never been abortion, but is a salpingectomy, salpingostomy, or laparoscopy, which are all still completely legal and available for women in Texas and all 50 states. The treatment for a natural miscarriage, is not the same as an elective abortion, which is really a heartbreaking misunderstanding and tragic comparison for women who have suffered from spontaneous pregnancy loss. Now we are working to undo the narrative of Roe vs Wade which for 50 years has told women what to do with their bodies, that she needs to alter, suppress, and destroy the normal, healthy functions of her natural body through traumatic chemical abortion pills or invasive surgeries up to the day of birth in New Mexico, in order to be successful, and we don’t believe that destroying any part of a woman’s body is healthcare nor an advancement of women’s rights.
Mississippi Abortion Business Relocating to Las Cruces
Sadly, we are not surprised that the abortion business at the center of the most controversial Supreme Court case of the last 50 years would choose to relocate to the state of New Mexico, and specifically to Las Cruces where there is less competition for them meaning more financial profit in the state where abortion remains completely unregulated up to the day of birth for any reason with no medical oversight to protect women, and where our governor is continuing to push the same 1970s narrative of Roe vs Wade, which for 50 years has been telling women what to do with their bodies, that she needs to alter, suppress, and destroy the normal, healthy functions of her natural body through traumatic chemical abortion pills and invasive surgeries in order to be successful. With all of the medical advancements in women’s healthcare in the last 50 years, we don’t believe that destroying any part of a woman’s body is healthcare nor an advancement of women’s rights.
