The Gay Vegans

We love women and we vote

I can’t say that I am surprised with the news from Georgia and Alabama. I’m not. Straight, white, male bigots in office who want power over women. The new laws have nothing to do with abortion or some supposed love of life.


I am outraged. And sad for the many women these laws affect, both directly and indirectly.


The purpose of this post is to stand up for women and to ask once again for people to vote. To vote, to speak out, to write letters and emails. We cannot idly sit by. We haven’t been able to for some time, and things keep getting worse.


Take an action today.


There is a lot online about boycotts, and those tend to hurt communities that are with us. Polling I have read shows that there is not a majority of support for these bills in either state. The problem is not with those who live in these states, it’s with those in political power in these states.


Take an action today.


Support women.


And please realize that this is just the beginning. These politicians aren’t going anywhere (unless more of us vote) and they are not changing their minds. They want Roe v Wade overturned, and many of them believe doing this at the state level gets them to the Supreme Court.


Take an action today. This is not a drill.


Thank you for reading!
