Bodily Autonomy

March 7, 2017

by Alexieindia Abrams

I am responsible for this body till death do us part. I have the right to say NO to being touched in any form by anybody. I have the right to discuss my treatment concerning my bodily health with my medical provider and be heard. I have the right to sexual intimacy with the partner of my choosing and the right to say NO to sex from said partner.

My body and what I choose to do with it is my own right. I choose to love it. Take medications as prescribed and only as prescribed. I choose to drink plenty of water for health and beauty. I choose abstinence from illegal drugs and harm reduction on weed and drink. I choose to get adequate sleep. I choose to listen and respond to my body. I choose to treat my body as a temple. I choose to acknowledge my body’s strengths, needs, abilities and preferences.

Peace and Blessings be upon all.
