War on Women Continues…

10 Mar

Jeers to Gov. Bob McDonnell, of Virginia, for signing into law the ultrasound bill, which exploits women at a very vulnerable moment to discourage them from having an abortion–yet another chip away at Roe v. Wade by Right Wing KKKristians. Thus, the war on women continues, as we police women’s bodies in an attempt for our government to own every vagina in the country. My hope is this article will wake people up and show how close we are to completely objectifying women, as we send the message that we don’t trust women to exercise control over their own bodies.

There are still 450 other bills on birth control and abortion in state legislatures across the country. With a far-right faction of the GOP holding a majority in many of them, it’s unclear how many we can stop. But let me just say this: It is time we STOP right wing Republicans from holding the US hostage, unless Republican men are willing to have their sperm policed in the exact same ways we police women’s eggs.

Currently, New Hampshire, Florida, Arizona (home of Jan Brewer), Ohio (Home of John Boehner), and many other states are considering similar legislation.  The Texas legislature is in the midst of a bitter fight to eliminate state support for a wide range of women’s health services. They’ve already eliminated two-thirds of their funding for women’s health, closing more than half of the state’s Planned Parenthood and other clinics. And now they’re voting to reject aid for the Medicaid Women’s Health Program. They claim they’re doing this to fight abortion, but what they’re actually doing is denying hundreds of thousands of women access to basic health care.  This is called fascism and we have to stop it by how we vote!

    Treating women’s bodies like public property needs to cease! This news is so disturbing.

    I think you know my thoughts on this. I hate the thought of politics, but if women do not start getting more involved who will stop this?

      Bonnie, I know you to be a loving and wonderfully kind woman that does not like to hurt anyone’s feelings. I also know you to be a person that stands for social justice and civil rights. We must show solidarity and support women! Of course, women of color and women of lower socio-economic status are disproportionately affected.

        If people could only realize that getting a woman to not choose abortion has nothing to do with the laws. It is about the woman’s life, support, family, and so much more. I feel if you are voting for laws against abortion you should be required to adopt one of those children.

        ” I feel if you are voting for laws against abortion you should be required to adopt one of those children.” AMEN! Why don’t we hold men equally accountable?
