Don't mess with Heidi. She's had enough of men speaking on issues that impact women's bodies.
In what is probably the greatest letter to the editor of all time, a woman named Heidi Seltz wrote to the Minneapolis Star Tribune with a request. 
After the paper published two letters from anti-abortion men regarding the Supreme Court's landmark  ruling on Texas' insanely restrictive H.B. 2 abortion legislation, Seltz weighed in with a strongly-worded letter to the editor. 
"Perhaps newspaper readership among young people would grow if every time we opened a paper, we didn't have to read old men's fusty opinions about uteri," she wrote. (See the full letter below.)

Damn, Heidi.
The Supreme Court's historic decision to strike down H.B. 2 was one of the most significant victory for abortion rights since Roe v. Wade. 
Seltz's message to editors and men alike goes hand-in-hand with Ruth Bader Ginsburg's pointed concurrence to the June 27 SCOTUS decision -- specifically her commentary on the insanity of claiming that anti-abortion legislation "protects women." As Ginsburg wrote:

Given those realities, it is beyond rational belief that H.B. 2 could genuinely protect the health of women, and certain that the law ‘would simply make it more difficult for them to obtain abortions’. When a State severely limits access to safe and legal procedures, women in desperate circumstances may resort to unlicensed rogue practitioners ... at great risk to their health and safety.
