Anyone who doesn’t believe you have the right to make decisions about your own body. Including who you love, what you look like, and your healthcare.

Any person that believes you know what is best for yourself. Including organizations that fight for you every day, elected officials that stand up and protect you every day, and volunteers that defend you every day.

Since 1973 when Roe vs Wade became law, anti-abortion zealots have continuously attacked access to abortion. They started with putting anti-abortion judges into courts and sued until they overturned Roe vs Wade. They won’t stop until all abortions are banned nationwide with ZERO exceptions.

Controlling the narrative

A straw man’s argument - instead of addressing the actual position or argument of the other person, the fallacy involves substituting it with a weaker or exaggerated version that is easier to criticize. By attacking this misrepresentation, the person avoids engaging with the real argument and creates a false sense of victory
(e.g., personhood, abortion is not healthcare, savior complex)
