In my mind
In a future five years from now
I’m one hundred and twenty pounds
And I never get hung over
Because I will be the picture of discipline
Never minding what state I’m in
And I will be someone I admire
And it’s funny how I imagined
That I would be that person now
But it does not seem to have happened
Maybe I’ve just forgotten how to see
That I am not exactly the person that I thought I’d be
Miley. Roots. Jimmy.

I made a post of these pictures because not only was Rep Thompson’s speech utterly amazing, her decision to punctuate it with a wire hanger cements something that those too young to remember or born after Roe v Wade do not know personally: the atrocity suffered before us by those who were faced with little to no choice when it came to their reproductive rights.
Much thanks to Rep Thompson and the other brave, amazing women like her that fought to overturn SB5.
