Reagirajući na vijest da je guvernerka Iowe Kim Reynolds potpisala najstroži zakon u naciji, koji zabranjuje većinu pobačaja ako se detektira otkucaj srca kod fetusa, što bi u osnovi zabranilo pobačaje nakon šest tjedana trudnoće, žena koja je politička urednica u Harper Bazaaru tweetala je svoje mišljenje o posljedicama takvog zakona na žene, završavajući svoj tweet sa #NotYourHandmaid.
If you've had an abortion in America, now is the time to speak up, because we're about to lose our right to it. Tell your officials how many women that will impact #NotYourHandmaid https://t.co/95zKjPpzlb

Wrightov tweet izazvao je ovaj kratki odgovor od urednika Daily Wire-a Ben Shapira, nepokolebljivog neprijatelja pobačaja:
Women are not anybody’s handmaids. They are their babies’ mothers. That is the entire issue. https://t.co/XEz54MXZLm

Shapiro nije bio jedini:
If you’ve been murdered in the womb in America, speak up… oh, wait a minute.

Yes, speak up anguished in heart mothers who know full well the value of a babies life, even the life a defenseless baby not yet born.

I had an abortion when I was 16 and have regretted that decision everyday for 35 years. I can’t tell you the guilt I feel daily for that incredibly selfish choice. May god forgive me

Women worried they will lose their right to an abortion is like plantation owners worried they will lose their right to own slaves.
