We have to strip down to our bare feet before we are allowed passage to the airport terminal. Our liquid is limited to the bare minimum. Laptops have to go into separate bins. We are placed in capsules where our bodies are scanned in search of potential weapons before we are reunited with our belongings one by one. This is to ensure the safety of everyone on that plane. Fine. Whatever.
Lawmakers fight tooth and nail to ensure that a fetus is birthed despite the will of the mind that is tending to that fetus. ‘All life is precious’ they say. Laws are passed with frightening passion.
And yet here we are. The laws that protect ownership of firearms are held in higher regard than the children struck down by them.
This isn’t right.
