Sad & Angry

I knew it was coming. There's been plenty of press leading up to it. But it still pisses me off.

Yes! What the hell? What gives some bureaucratic MAN the right to tell me what I can do with MY BODY? It is absolutely nobody's business but mine. To me this has nothing to do with abortion - it has to do with a woman's right to choose and I'm appalled and damn furious that once again attempts are being made to force women into becoming second class citizens who have no rights. And no one ever thinks of the repercussions on overturning Roe v. Wade. How about the drag on welfare, insurance, domestic abuse? And WHAT THE HELL are women supposed to do who have been raped and become pregnant? How about a pregnancy that is endangering a woman's life? Are these people saying she should die? She should carry and give birth to a child conceived from great violence and invasion? Can you imagine?

30 years after the women's movement and these dickheads are trying to take us back into oppression. When did this country cease being democratic? When it comes to women's rights, when did it become a male dictatorship? When the hell did we revert to the 1950's?

Any woman who thinks this is about abortion, about right-to-life, is fooling themselves. The ramifications of this could be enormous.

I am so glad to see that I am not the only one who is adopting that is for a woman's Right to Choose.

I live in SoDak. Imagine how I've been feeling with every setback here for a woman's right to choose. It's all such a crock, too, because Rounds knows it's not going to go anywhere, but he's willing to waste MILLIONS of SoDak taxpayer dollars to test it out. The guy who got it all started should be voted our of office. Jerk.

Almost everyone I know in SoDak is against the ban. Don't know if that makes you feel any better, but...
