AbortionWe all know about the war on women’s health that is being waged by the Republican Presidential candidates.  I will say that Rick Santorum has at least been consistent all of his political life.  He would like to see Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health clinics just disappear.  But then there’s Mitt Romney, who as Governor of Massachusetts used to be pro-choice and supported PPFA’s mission.  And now, of course, he has done a total reversal.

If Romney gets the presidential nomination, consider that he will try to stop PPFA (and the independent clinics) from not just performing abortions but also breast exams, life saving cervical cancer screenings, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases and offering birth control.

I urge those of you who support women’s health (and who trust women to make their own decisions) to get involved in the presidential campaign.  There may be no more important one than this one.

Hello Male Legislators: Women are not Stupid.

Hello Male Legislators: Women are not Stupid.

When is this stuff gonna end?

Recently, the Oklahoma State Senate approved a bill that would require an abortion doctor to let a woman know that she had a right to hear the heartbeat of the fetus!   The bill was approved by a 34 – 8 vote and will soon go to the state House.

Originally, the bill required that women hear the heartbeat before having an abortion, but the bill’s author watered down the measure to secure its passage.  So, now it’s “only” optional.

Yet another insult.

Women know the embryo is living.

So, if you hear the heartbeat, what does that prove?   It proves that the fetus is alive!  Oh revelation!  Thank you, oh wise ones, for informing us that we are carrying something that is alive.   Indeed, what you failed to realize was that, the reason why women go to get an abortion is because they KNOW the fetus is alive and growing and they don’t want it to live any longer.  But, then, we are sooooo stupid, so it’s fortunate that we have you boys around to educate us.

What are you going to do next – take away our vote?

Virginia Abortion

Virginia Abortion

The Virginia legislature has passed legislation requiring women to get an ultrasound before they could have an abortion.  Of course, it’s entirely insulting to women to suggest that they need this “help” but that’s only part of the story.

It seems that no one – not even the pro-choice groups – understood that if a woman was contemplating an early abortion, the only way to see the fetus would be to have a vaginal ultrasound!   That’s right.  It was not until a clever lawyer in the pro-choice movement thought this through a little that the word got out.  And now the legislature has gone back to the drawing board.

That’s a very sad commentary on the state of women’s health.  In many ways, we are still just afterthoughts.
