Alabama woman indicted for loss of unborn fetus

Good Morning! Hope everyone is well.

I wanted to bring something to your attention. Not sure if you came across it yet. There was a woman recently indicted for getting shot while pregnant. As if getting shot wasn’t  enough; now she has to deal with being in jail because someone chose to shoot her in the stomach.

It seems like this case, played right into the seriousness of the abortion ban. I truly believe this woman is only being punished because they want to make an example out of her. If that is the case, it’s sad that they rather take someone’s time (they’ll never get back), to make a point.

I hate to say it, but it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t. I believe if she had been another race, things would have gone completely different. They say she’s getting charged with her unborn child’s murder, because it was her job to protect the unborn fetus. Also, claims of her starting the altercation, fueled the negative outcome. What I’m not understanding is how you could get shot by someone, loose your child because of it and you’re the one sitting in prison, with egg on your face. Isn’t it enough she had to go through the physical pain of getting shot? Not to mention the emotional pain of having a little human growing inside her, only to get to the half way mark and someone take that little miracle away.

The other thing that made no sense; How are you suppose to have control over someone else’s actions? I’m not saying the Mom to be a.k.a  Marshae Jones didn’t antagonize the shooter (Ebony Jemison). I don’t know exactly what happened; meaning I wasn’t their, so I don’t know what took place to make the argument escalate to that point.

Reports only state shots were fired outside of a Dollar General on Park Road in Alabama.

Supposedly the altercation started over Jones’ baby’s father. The conversation turned into an altercation quickly, and that’s when shots were fired.

Now, this woman is facing time because an “intentional shot” was fired at her stomach. It had to be intentional; there’s very little chance it wasn’t.

Here’s how I think the whole thing went; Marshae was probably flaunting her pregnant belly because she knew Ebony was in the facility, and she wanted to rub her face in it. Ebony got tired of it; stepped to Marshea. They started to argue, things got a little too heated for Ebony, because Marshae was getting a little to flip at the mouth. Then Ebony shot her in the only place she knew could possibly take away the pain of being hurt and betrayed; the stomach. Wanting to hurt them both as much as they hurt her.

If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. You have two women fighting over a man; taking out their frustrations on each other, instead of on him. Typical women of today.

We need to start realizing we’re the prize, and start looking at the next woman as our sister; rather then as our enemy.

Series Review: When They See Us

Spoiler Alert: If you’re the type that wants to know nothing before watching a show or movie. You might not want to read this, because there are spoilers all up and through here.

Well hey Everyone!!!

 

As you know it’s Saturday; the day after the last day of school. My journey begins.

I know this is a little different then the things I usually write about, but I really wanted to bring this series to you all’s attention. I was watching a short series about the Central Park Five. I have to say it was very emotional to watch. It starts off just following five young boys.

Before this incident the boys did not know each other.  Maybe two out of the five did. What was so bad about it, these boys got convicted for something they had nothing to do with. The crime they were charged with was rape in the third degree. The woman they were accused of raping almost died. What made it even worse was she didn’t remember who raped her.

Many of the boys stayed in juvenile detention for almost all of their teens, and got out when they were grown men. The all had it hard, but in my opinion the one who had it the hardest was Korey and the reason I say that is because he got out after serving 12yrs of his life behind bars. Mind you for a crime he did not commit and he was only 16 at the time of conviction. Having to shower with grown men in an adult prison.

I have to say Ava DuVernay did a superb job on this. I felt everything those young boys went through. They endured things no child should have to go through. No matter what social class, financial level, race, or culture a child is a child. The one thing I wish those people who put them there would have done is imagine if it were their niece, nephew, daughter, or son before they decided to take these young boys innocents away from them.

Imagine if you had to grow up fast because someone felt your life wasn’t important enough to save. What if it came done to politics, when it was your turn to take the stand or be judged? How would you feel about serving time then?

These are questions I would loved to ask that prosecutor, female detective and all of the cops that coerced those boys to lie about their involvement as it pertained to that case. Going as far as not letting them relieve themselves, eat, or be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the time of integration.

Truth is I can go on and on about this, but I really want to see what you all think about this series. Please come back once you’ve watched it, and let me know what you thought about it.

Below are pictures of the boys then and now. They’re in a better place now. But what was taken can not be given back.

Warning: Know that this is going to be a tear jerker (if you’re overly emotional like me).

 If your interested in seeing the series, check it out on Netflix. 

For me it was 5 stars. I loved it and hated at the same time. Loved it because they had the chance to tell their story, and I loved the way it was told. Hated it because of all the things they went through when convicted of a crime they did not do.

War on Women

What is a miscarriage?
Miscarriage is when an embryo or fetus dies before the 20th week of pregnancy. Miscarriage usually happens early in your pregnancy — 8 out of 10 miscarriages happen in the first 3 months.
Lots of people experience this kind of pregnancy loss. In fact, 10-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. But even though miscarriage is common, it can be emotionally difficult. Feelings of grief and loss are normal after losing a pregnancy.
The medical term for miscarriage is “spontaneous abortion.”

What are the causes of miscarriage?

It can be difficult to know exactly why a miscarriage happened, but it’s almost never caused by something the pregnant person did. Normal activities like sex, exercise, working, and taking most medicines do NOT cause a miscarriage. Minor injuries, like falling, don’t generally cause a miscarriage either.
Some things that are known to cause miscarriages include:
When the fertilized egg has an abnormal number of chromosomes (genes). This happens at random, so you can’t prevent it or cause it to happen.
Certain illnesses, like severe diabetes, can increase your chances of having a miscarriage.
A very serious infection or a major injury may cause miscarriage.
Late miscarriages — after 3 months — may be caused by abnormalities in the uterus.
If you’ve had more than 2 miscarriages in a row, you’re more likely to have a miscarriage.


Good Morning, Beautiful People!!!

Hope all is well.

I wanted to share with you something most men will never worry about a day in their lives’; Miscarriage. I think this is something that needs to be reflected on a little longer, in a lot more depth.

Miscarriages are already something women take hard in the first place! I don’t understand how a man or a large group of men have the right to decide on the fate of a woman and her body! They have never had to go through one painful period, or the embarrassment of walking around not noticing you bled through because your pad shifted, or your flow was too heavy for your tampon or pad, or even the pain of loosing a child or bleeding so heavy til you literally see stars.

No, man knows anything about this. So, I’m not understand how in Georgia they’re saying miscarriage is consider second degree murder and women who experience miscarriages could be sentenced to 30yrs in prison! Doesn’t that sound crazy?!

First of all; How are you going to imprison a woman for something that is happening with her body?!

To be honest, I feel like we’re going back to the 1800’s, where men did whatever they wanted and women had to deal with it! How in the hell is it possible that we have, most likely more women than we do men and they still have say so over what a woman does with her body?!! I’m in no way saying I’m for abortion. I just think your body is your business, and no government, man or other entity should have the right to tell you what to do with it.

Think of it like this, if the Creator didn’t want you to have it, it wouldn’t be yours.

I would really love to see something be done about theses ridiculous laws concerning abortion. To be honest the only one that really concerns me is the one in Georgia. I feel like because of this new law, there are going to be plenty women afraid to go to the doctor, for the simple fact that it could land them in jail for 30yrs. Because of this, a lot of women won’t get the type of care they need for they’re babies, that are going to come in to the world.

Another thing that could be possible is; they’re coming up with these laws to slow down the population. Think about it; if you knew you couldn’t get an abortion or having a spontaneous miscarriage could land you in jail. Wouldn’t you do all you could not to get pregnant in the first place?

I would love to know your thoughts on these new laws concerning Abortions and Miscarriages.

Remember if you want something to be done, you can’t wait for someone else to do it for you. You have to start the change yourself.
