The United States citizens— specifically addressing women in this essay, suffer the consequences of the personal agendas of politicians in power. We live in a nation where political interest has overruled the common good. I speak on how in the contemporary United States, women are victims of Othering. They are oppressed through their gender identity, their livelihood, and their healthcare— specifically reproductive choice. I talk about the Supreme Court System and how it is too outdated for modern American issues. I also touch on exactly how abortion restrictions have effected the American people.
