I Grew Up In A Fundamentalist Cult — ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Was My Reality

This is so timely for me… I spent an hour or so arguing with my husband why it is important to support a woman’s right to chose and why, after all these years, we should no longer be arguing about the right to have an abortion. He was being a pragmatist, talking about the DNC needing to remain “big tent” and “not have a litmus test” even while he remains an independent and staunchly pro-choice. I asked him if any of these so-called litmus tests actually governed his body or his actions. It is hard when our own family members, the people we love the most, support the chains that hold us down. I will share your post with him in hopes that it will hammer in a nail or two of the conversation we had the other day… in hopes that he will see the light.
