Strange New World

Over the last few weeks, many of us felt like it was a strange new world. As a woman, the reverse decision of the United States Supreme Court on Roe vs. Wade was gut punching. What a pitiful insult – by the highest court in our great land. As a woman, I now do not have a right to full reproductive healthcare and be able to make decisions about my health and my future.

And now, in today’s world, whatever you did or said is frowned upon – so now you are canceled. You should be removed from this planet earth, you worthless human. God, where are we going?
