If authority can change the laws, bylaws, and rules authority are meant to be beholden to, that’s how you know law isn’t and never will be sacrosanct; nor can it ever be an arbiter for upstanding ethics and morality.

global abortion laws
Hope some people pushing back on the attack on abortion in the u.s. keep in mind that birthing autonomy is an intersectional privilege on a global level. Just like there are many people in the u.s. whose access to free & safe abortion (& pregnancy) has never really existed, there are even more people worldwide who don't have these things even on paper - & in many cases the u.s., nato, & five eyes send hundreds of millions of dollars a year to these governments. This also means that there are many people who have been fighting back under incredibly repressive conditions who deserve equal support & attention
