This whole thing with Roe v. Wade is horrifying for a multitude of reasons. But a main one is that with the overturning of this ruling, it opens the door for the Supreme Court to overturn other rulings. Contraception, same-sex relationships and marrriges, nothing is safe (except for interracial marriage because Justice Thomas can't have that overturned). But, the Griswold v. Connecticut ruling has me really worried. I am on birth control, one firstly because I am in a relationship and physical intamacy is part of that and I want to prevent pregnancy. But secondly, I have a medical condition that is managed by being on birth control. If I wasn't on it, I'd bleed. A lot. All of the time. Birth control pretty much prevents that and helps keep my body and hormones manageable. So, if I lose access to contraception, I'm fucked. It's a horrifying time to be a woman in America.
