The 18-year-old climate activist took to Twitter listing the reasons.
Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg has shared her thoughts on America's debate on abortion. A quick refresher: Senate Bill 8 is considered the most restrictive abortion law in the country. It was passed through the Texas legislature in May and has taken effect recently. The law bans abortions after six weeks of pregnancy when some people don't even know that they're pregnant. The law allows citizens to sue abortion clinics or people who aid in the abortions after six weeks. There are no exceptions in the law for pregnancies that are the result of incest or rape, reports PEOPLE. Biden's administration responded with Attorney General Merrick Garland vowing that the Department of Justice would “protect” those seeking abortions. “The department will provide support from federal law enforcement when an abortion clinic or reproductive health center is under attack,” Garland said in the statement Monday, adding that the Justice Department is “urgently” looking at options to combat the Texas restrictions. “We will not tolerate violence against those seeking to obtain or provide reproductive health services.” The law has since been criticized worldwide and Thunberg also weighed in.
Using a blunt pie chart showing the "reasons why women have abortions," Thunberg tweeted to her 5 million follows the list of reasons women decide to get an abortion. The biggest is “personal choice” at 60 percent, a blunt expletive “F**k off” comes in at 22 percent, with “Not your concern” at 10 percent and “Mind your business” at 8 percent. Her take on the issue has left people applauding. One user tweeted: A woman's healthcare is between her and her doctor, not politicians with no medical experience. Another pointed out: A quick scan of the responses - 99% of the ones objecting to this are men.
Very good, Greta! It's right. Every woman has the right to decide if she wants to be mother or not, it's her body, and her decission.— Franco Muñoz (@FrancoMunozHer) September 3, 2021
Thunberg has never shied away from clapping back. Back in 2019, she even took on then President Trump after he mocked her when she was voted Time's 2019 person of the year. The 75-year-old called the then 16-year-old's win "ridiculous" and suggested that she take anger management classes. He tweeted that the young activist needed to work on her “Anger Management problem” writing: So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill! But Thunberg didn't just chill. She had the perfect response for the President. Soon after his "anger management" tweet directed at her, Thunberg changed the bio section of her Twitter profile to read: A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.
This wasn't the first time Trump was caught bullying thee teenager. According to Buzzfeed, after Thunberg made an emotional speech at the United Nations in 2019, Trump mocked the 16-year-old by sarcastically tweeting that she "seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!” Thunberg waited till the POTUS left the White House for good. And then she dropped a fiery tweet sharing an image of Trump boarding Marine One as he left the White House. She wrote: He seems like a very happy old man looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. We'll never know what Trump had to say in response considering he's been banned from Twitter. Oh, well.
