A judge in northern ireland has made a very very good ruling in A CASE INVOLVING A 15YEAROLD WHO WAS GIVEN AN ABORTION PILL BY HER MOTHER AND THE MOTHER IS NOW FACING PROSECUTION AS A RESULT. THIS CASE HAS TO DO WITH LAWYERS WHO WANT TO QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT IT’S OKAY TO PROSECUTE THE MOTHER DIED IN NORTHERN IRELAND,.
Abortion is illegal in almost every case unless there is an EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCE AND PEOPLE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE THE ABORTION PILL, AND SO WHEN THE 15YEAROLD WHO IS UNNAMED TO PROTECT HER PRIVACY BECAME PREGNANT, THE MOTHER WENT ONLINE, FOUND AN ORGANIZATION THAT SELLS THE ABORTION PILL ESPECIALLY TO COUNTRIES WHERE ABORTION IS RESTRICTION.
Started and gave it to her daughter. THIS GROUNDBREAKING CASE IS ACTUALLY SET TO FOCUS ATTENTION ON NORTHERN IRELAND’S ABORTION LEGISLATION. A JUDGE IN BELFAST GAVE PERMISSION FOR JUDICIAL REVIEW TO BE HEARD OVER THE PROSECUTION OF THE MOTHER, STATING THAT THE CASE RAISED ISSUES OF CONSIDERABLE.
Public importance and public debate. SO AGAIN, THIS IS ALL ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT IT MAKES SENSE TO PROSECUTE THE MOTHER IN THE CASE. LAWYERS ARGUED THAT COMPELLING THE CHILD TO GO AHEAD WITH THE PREGNANCY WOULD’VE BREACHED HER HUMAN RIGHTS; AND BY EXTENSION THE DECISION TO PROSECUTE HER MOTHER FOR.
Helping her access medication also amounted to a breach OF HER HUMAN RIGHTS AND THOSE OF HER MOTHER. THE REVIEW WILL LOOK AT WHETHER THE DECISION BY POLICE TO ACCESS HER MEDICAL RECORDS WITHOUT HER PERMISSION REPRESENTED REACH OF HER HUMAN RIGHTS AS WELL. THE WAY THAT THAT HAPPENED WAS THE GIRL WAS DEALING WITH.
An abusive boy who impregnated her and he was saying that IF YOU GO AHEAD AND HAVE THE BABY, I AM GOING TO GO AND STAB THE BABY TO DAD, WHATEVER IT IS AND SO SHE WAS FREAKING OUT. SHE WAS IN A LOT OF MENTAL DISTRESS AND SO THE MOTHER TOOK HER TO A DOCTOR, A GENERAL PRACTITIONER AND LET THE DOCTOR KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON.
It was completely open and honest with the ABOUT HOW HER DAUGHTER HAD TAKEN THE ABORTION PILL AND THE DOCTOR WENT AHEAD AND ALERTED AUTHORITIES ABOUT A DIET THAT POINT, AUTHORITIES ACCESS THE GIRLS MEDICAL RECORDS WITHOUT PERMISSION. THAT IS A HUGE PROBLEM.
It is hard for me to take this issue as one where we ARE SUPPOSED TO DEBATE. THE LAWS IN NORTHERN IRELAND ARE WRONG IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS. 1ST OF ALL, ABORTION IS A MEDICAL PROCEDURE, IT IS NOT A MORAL ISSUE, AND IF YOU THINK IT IS A MORAL ISSUE, THAT IS YOUR OPINION MAN BUT NOT EVERYONE IN NORTHERN.
National Poetry Slam Finals 2014 Say No Olivia Gatwood Megan Falley
It is summer the smell of beer and hotdogs are sweet in the air like the national anthem. It’s baseball season! And you love baseball and going to these games with your boyfriend. And today it might be the perfect day As you watch the little boys with their sticky grins on their fathers shoulders. As you watch all the happy people on the Jumbotron. And then you see your own face and your boyfriend down on one knee.
And then you see an engagement ring so big it blinds the screen. And when when he looks at you, like he caught the homerun ball And then you look up and see the thousands of people in the stadium rooting for you To do it. To say yes! This is for the woman who says no. They will boo you as you run down the stadium steps because it will never be the wedding aisle.
Someone will throw popcorn at you because it will never be rice or confetti. Someone will catch your wrist because it will never be the bouquet. They will call you a villain, a bitch. They will call you worse They will curse the day you learned any other words besides Yes.
And sorry The ones that think themselves kind will ask why you couldn’t just fake it for the screen. Why you had to make no a public thing There are little girls in the audience after all and you denied them their FUCKING fairy tale.
Someone will tell your now exboyfriend how undeserving you are. How any sane woman would have loved that proposal. And you must have not been shit anyway Probably crazy, and he will nod And somewhere a man calls a woman from outside his car window Hey sexy! Come closer.
She says no Cunt, you’re ugly anyway! Somewhere a woman argues for a higher salary And her coworker call her a bitch in the break room Somewhere a woman’s friends signed her up for a makeover show The audience laughs when she says she loves her sweatpants.
The audience laughs when they throw them out anyway Somewhere a girl is told that if she doesn’t want to hear the song about rape Don’t listen to it! But it follows her in the supermarket, the gym, the girl’s clothing aisle And now she knows all the words Somewhere a woman is told to get naked at frat parties, she refuses.
A boy with a kind smile puts his arm around her, offers her a beer filled with the magic that erases No Her vocabulary, I am 16 in the managers office of my first job My boss, whispers a list of the things he will do to my body I say ‘no and he threatens my next paycheck. My long term boyfriends bed, after having sex 5 times already that morning.
