Abortion bans aren’t just about controlling women’s bodies. They’re about controlling women’s sexuality. Owning women. From limiting birth control to banning comprehensive sex ed, U.S. religious fundamentalists are working hard to outlaw sex that falls outside their theology.

The anti-abortion crowd supports a brutal form of oppression to seize control of the one essential thing a person should command: their own body.
