The nation’s most restrictive anti-abortion laws just passed in Alabama and Georgia — and DJs are speaking out on this issue, as well as women’s rights in general.
Not only is it terrifying that women choosing to abort may be held liable for felony murder, the severe lack of exceptions is startling. In Alabama, exemption in cases of rape and incest has failed to pass.
Under the new law, absolutely no abortion may take place after 20 weeks, unless the woman’s health is at risk. Abortion is punishable up to 99 years, or life in prison.
Many view this as a direct attack on women’s rights and personal freedom. It’s devastating to see these states taking a huge step back from progression.
See some of the arguments from the EDM community below.
Hey ALL MEN, right now is a prime time to be an ally. This situation in Georgia which will make women who have abortions or even MISCARRY liable for MURDER is insane and terrifying. You should be upset about this. You should be speaking out about this. pic.twitter.com/YwDZQnOXug

Damn right I’m an ally to women. This Georgia abortion bill is all sorts of horrendous. I support women and their right to the control of their own bodies and decisions with full autonomy.

well all that aside, Georgia women, please be safe. the ACLU says there is still access to safe abortion there and that they will be doing everything they can to fight against that ever changing

Not usually one to get involved in politics but men making policies about womens’ bodies in a democracy is insanity. What’s happening is evil.
