Woman Tells Men To STFU About Abortion In 3 Glorious Sentences

Don’t mess with Heidi. She’s had enough of men speaking on issues that impact women’s bodies.

In what is probably the greatest letter to the editor of all time, a woman named Heidi Seltz wrote to the Minneapolis Star Tribune with a request.

After the paper published two letters from anti-abortion men regarding the Supreme Court’s landmark  ruling on Texas’ insanely restrictive H.B. 2 abortion legislation, Seltz weighed in with a strongly-worded letter to the editor.

“Perhaps newspaper readership among young people would grow if every time we opened a paper, we didn’t have to read old men’s fusty opinions about uteri,” she wrote. (See the full letter below.)

Damn, Heidi.

The Supreme Court’s historic decision to strike down H.B. 2 was one of the most significant victory for abortion rights since Roe v. Wade.

Seltz’s message to editors and men alike goes hand-in-hand with Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s pointed concurrence to the June 27 SCOTUS decision — specifically her commentary on the insanity of claiming that anti-abortion legislation “protects women.” As Ginsburg wrote:

Given those realities, it is beyond rational belief that H.B. 2 could genuinely protect the health of women, and certain that the law ‘would simply make it more difficult for them to obtain abortions’. When a State severely limits access to safe and legal procedures, women in desperate circumstances may resort to unlicensed rogue practitioners … at great risk to their health and safety.

Long live Notorious RBG and Heidi Seltz.
