A U.S. Army medic lashed out in a TikTok video following the historic Roe v. Wade decision. In the viral video, the military member asks how she can serve the country that allegedly “doesn’t give a rat’s ass” about her.
TikTok user rahasenfratz ranted about the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
In the three-minute video posted on June 24, the medic expressed regret in extending her contract with the U.S. Army – which she said she signed only a week ago.
The medic asked, “How am I supposed to swear to support and defend the Constitution and a country that treats its women like second-class citizens?”
“How am I supposed to do that with pride? How am I supposed to do that with love and honor? How am I supposed to wake up every day and put on a frickin’ uniform that says ‘United States Army’ when the United States doesn’t even give a rat’s ass about me,” the TikTok user fumed.
“It gives more of a rat’s ass about the guns they’re allowed to buy that kill the children that I’m forced to give birth to,” she spouted.
The medic claimed that the Supreme Court decision would have an “unintended consequence” for female service members.
She questioned whether Supreme Court justices or politicians could “support the troops” if they are in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade and giving states the ability to determine their abortion laws.
She claimed the overturning of Roe v. Wade would “greatly lessen the retention of women in the ranks of this military” and “ruin some women’s careers.”
The Army medic asserted that she has “extremely limited access to birth career” and she “can’t get an ultrasound without traveling off base.”
“I signed that contract, so I will serve my country,” she continued.
“But you bet your ass you’re going to hear my voice because I will not stop, I will not rest, and I will not be silent because this is not an attack on reproductive rights. It is an attack on women in this country,” she concluded.
As of Sunday night, it appears that rahasenfratz has deleted her video and her entire TikTok account.
In 2019, the U.S. Army banned TikTok from being used on government-issued phones.
Meanwhile, a retired three-star general who was awarded a Silver Star for his gallantry in Iraq was recently suspended for a mild and sarcastic tweet sent to first lady Jill Biden.
