I’m still over a month behind on all my work due to waves hand at the HAES events of 2022, and I’m still a high-risk person trying to survive a pandemic, so I have nothing intelligent to say about the Supreme Court trashing Roe v. Wade except:
- Abortion is a human right
- Abortion cannot be magically replaced by Plan B for fat people
- Plan B is less effective for anyone over ~165 pounds
- How much less effective? We don’t know, it hasn’t been studied
- Contraceptives are also not the answer, since they do fail
- Fighting for abortion is also an act of allyship to fat folks specifically
Every Monday, I send out my Body Liberation Guide, a thoughtful email jam-packed with resources on body liberation, weight stigma, body image and more. And it’s free. Let’s change the world together.
