We Never Ever Go Back to The Time Before Roe
Few weeks ago, the Supreme Court published its final decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and declare the constitutional right to abortion no longer exists. And over 20 states will implement this decision. The decision sparked a protest storm, and many people had to take to the street to defend their rights.
Some say that the Supreme Court’s decision not only overturned the abortion right granted by the Constitution but also destroyed American civilization and human rights, causing the United States to go back 150 years.
Up to now, more than twenty states have concurred with the abortion ban, and the hospitals or clinics in prohibition states are forbidden to provide any abortion help, even telemedicine consultation from progressive states on the matter of abortion. In Mississippi, women have banned abortions after 15 weeks, with some health-related exceptions but none for rape or incest.
The Conservatives believe that abortion violates the rights of the embryos or fetus. However, the extent to which they enforce anti-abortion laws shows how little they care about women’s physical and mental health. Pregnancy is more than thirty times more dangerous than abortion. One study estimates that a nationwide ban would lead to a twenty-one-percent rise in pregnancy-related deaths. Some women who will die from abortion bans are pregnant right now.
What’s worse, some women may resort to desperate and informal methods of abortion which abortion is banned in their states, such as going to Mexico for medical help. And suppose the miscarriage is not managed to a safe completion. In that case, women risk—among other things, and taking the emotional damage for granted—uterine perforation, organ failure, infection, infertility, and death. So how can women protect their life when abortion is deprived of Constitution?
What is the “Sex Strike”?
The term sex strike became popular on social media in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade. Calls for a nationwide sex strike were also gathering momentum on social media, and at one point, “abstinence” was trending on Twitter with more than 30.000 tweets. And one Twitter user wrote, “Women of America: Take the pledge. Because SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade, we cannot take the risk of an unintended pregnancy, therefore, we will not have sex with any man — including our husbands — unless we are trying to become pregnant.” If the world thinks they can oppress women forever, then women close their legs.
However, should we close our leg? After women are deprived of the right to education, the right to promotion in the workplace, and the right to free choice, should we deprive ourselves of the right to enjoy sex? Is a sex strike the best way to resist a ban on abortion? Of course, no. When we’re not ready for a baby, or the state we live that bans abortion, we can do something more effective than just protesting to show our resolve – contraception.
How to contraception before you are not ready to have a baby?
Oral contraceptives are hormone-containing medications that are taken by mouth to prevent pregnancy. They prevent pregnancy by inhibiting ovulation and by preventing sperm from penetrating through the cervix.
However, studies have provided consistent evidence that the risks of breast and cervical cancers are increased in women who use oral contraceptives, whereas the risks of endometrial, ovarian, and colorectal cancers are reduced. So, I do not recommend you use this way to do contraception.
There are two types of condoms, one called male condom, aka external condom, that wear on the penis; the other is female condom that wear inside the vagina. Most of us is familiar with external condom, you can buy it in groceries, drugstore, or supermarket. It is maybe the easiest way for us to prevent pregnancy, and it also can protect against sexually transmitted infections.
Most condoms are made with latex and polyisoprene, so be away from Oil-based products, such as moisturizer, lotion, and Vaseline, they will damage the condom, but they are safe to use with polyurethane condoms. To be on the safe side, please use water-based lubricant.
Even it has 98% effective to protect us from pregnancy, but the thinner and thinner rubber sleeves make it impossible to entrust them with the task of contraception.
3. Contraceptive implant
The contraceptive implant is a small flexible plastic bar placed under your upper arm skin by a medical worker. It releases the hormone progestogen into your bloodstream to prevent pregnancy and lasts 3 years. It is more than 99% effective! If you are allergic to contraception that contains estrogen or hates the feeling of a condom, the implant is a good option. And it can be taken out if you have any side effects or are ready to want a baby.
Before you search where you can get the contraceptive implant, you should know some side effects; amenorrhea is the most common one, but don’t worry; once you take it out, your period will become regular. For some women, their menses won’t stop but will become irregular, lighter, heavier, or longer. So, you may want to consider this before deciding to have an implant.
A vasectomy is a surgical procedure to cut or seal the tubes that carry a man’s sperm to prevent pregnancy permanently. It’s usually carried out under local anesthetic and takes about 15 minutes. This method is as effective as the implant, but it is permanent. So, you don’t need to consider contraception once you have done a Vasectomy. It doesn’t affect men’s sex drive or ability to enjoy sex. They’ll still have erections and ejaculate, but their semen won’t contain sperm. There is a transition period of about 8 to 12 weeks that you still need to take contraception after the operation because sperm will still be in the tubes leading to the penis. And it needs two semen tests to make sure all the sperm have gone, so your ball sack may become bruised, swollen, or painful. You should know that all surgeries have the likelihood of infection, so be sure you know everything about Vasectomy.
5. Sex toys
This may be the safest way I thought to prevent unplanned pregnancy. Even though sex toys are getting more realistic, they don’t have seminal vesicles and won’t contain sperm. You don’t need to worry about the function of sex toys since the development of the sex toy industry has become increasingly intelligent and fancy; they can satisfy your needs whether you prefer clit stimulation or vagina insertion. And most important is that you don’t need to consider the pregnancy or abortion thing. As long as Anesidora is here, you don’t need to worry about going on a sex strike because of pregnancy.
