My bride, many times before she passed away use to say when she came back in another life she was coming back as a man, to which I would reply, “So am I”.
Women are the glue that holds a family together, and for years they have been taken advantage by the work force and human rights. Under Democrat leadership changes have been made to allow a woman to decide what should be done to her body, and they have seen gains in the work place regarding equal pay; far from being there, but getting there.
Politics aside, if I were a woman today I would be scared to death about the outcome of this presidential election. Too much has come out by Tea Party candidates and the Republican presidential and vice-president candidate about abortion, birth control, and other female procedures that would set women’s right back to the dark alleys and risk of death.
I have been watching TV tonight and seeing a second Republican for the U.S. Senate say a woman raped should not be allowed to abort a pregnancy. I have shaken my head in disbelief thinking of my three daughters, a granddaughter, and three great granddaughters what would happen to them if this group is elected.
Not only to worry about the election, a Republican controlled Senate and President will be able to appoint one maybe two more conservatives to the U.S. Supreme Court where the possibility of Roe vs Wade being over turned, and much more.
With the new group of Republicans that went in two years ago in the Republican tidal wave, abortion laws have jumped by a large percent under their leadership.
My dad use to tell me a man can walk away from his mistake in making a woman pregnant, but a woman can’t hide their mistakes. Under the Republicans it looks like we’ll see a lot more mistakes running around.
What bothers me is Republicans are pro-life, but they want to take away social programs that support the unwed moms; planned parenthood being one, and support for abortion clinics another. If you want the fatherless kids to come, then you must support them until they can get back to school and become productive citizens, but they need help getting on their feet.
