Abortion (or, as we say, “interruption volontaire de grossesse”, aka “willing interruption of pregnancy”) has been legal in France since 1975. You have 12 weeks of pregnancy to make a decision. But legal doesn’t mean accessible. Legal doesn’t mean acceptable.
I just read a few stories from french women who aborted, and it made me sick. Doctors and nurses who fill them with guilt. “You know, having a baby won’t ruin your life, you’re selfish”. Girls wait in rooms surrounded by heavily pregnant women ; if your belly is flat, you’re obviously here for an abortion. Everyone knows. During the examination, “Aww look at your baby! It’s a boy! Isn’t he cute? Are you sure you wanna kill him?” . (Because, in France, to abort, you MUST have a certificate of pregnancy and examinations. And you don’t go and say “I want an abortion” ; you say “I require an abortion” in front of witnesses. And you’re forced to wait a whole week between the first appoinment and the abortion, “in case you change your mind”. That alone fills me with rage.) Sometimes, they even lie to women. In one of the testimonies, the doctor said the embryo was already dead and would enventually, hmm… “get out” on its own. The woman double-checked with another doctor a couple weeks later, because she had doubts. The first doc, a woman btw, had lied so the 12 weeks delay would be over, so that she couldn’t abort. Sometimes, they neglect you. Your abortion goes wrong? You’re horribly bleeding and fainting from pain? Well, not my problem, you shouldn’t abort in the first place. You’re not an emergency. And you won’t be.
"You’re gonna regret it, I garantee it."
You have only one body. You can do whatever you want with it. Same goes with your life.
NO ONE can tell a woman what she should or has to do.
NO ONE can tell ANYONE what they should or have to do.
I’m glad to live in a country where I can have an abortion if I want to. But it’s a shame to shame, lie to, misguide women. I’m ashamed of the way people treat these girls in my country. Scared, revolted, helpless girls confronted to horrible people who see a baby-killer instead of a human being in need of some help.
It’s not shameful to rule your life the way you want to.
For several months, there were protests in the streets against gay marriage. Some people took the opportunity to try and ban the loi Veil, which legalized abortion in France. Because gay marriage (and, for a lot of guys, homosexuality), abortion, pedophilia, zoophilia are correlated deadly sins which must be punished by the law.
Pays des droits de l’homme? Well, maybe, sometimes, even that can be argued over, just take a look at what happened sometime ago in the french streets when same-sex couples wanted to be legally recognized
. But when I see the bullshits going on, I doubt France will ever be le pays des droits de la femme.
