Abortion should be a woman's right to choose and not legislated.

Abortion is an assault on innocent human life? How bigoted can that statement be? However, the Republican Party has concluded that abortion is indeed such an assault by denying its female employees health coverage for elective abortions.

In the Senate the term 'abortion' is being bounced like a ping-pong ball and in the House there is the Stupak Amendment (AKA Stupid Amendment) to omit it from the Health Care Reform bill.


Right now, we have fighting servicemen and women fighting in the Middle East. How many innocent humans, which include women and children, have been killed, injured or maimed? Our 'righteous' Americans for the most part support these wars in the erroneous belief that the wars overseas are protecting our homeland. It is time to take the blinders off and see this for what it is: a ploy for power with the corporate world getting richer.


Discussions regarding abortion seem never to place responsibility on the male who assisted in impregnating a female. There are stories in the news almost daily about the rape of innocent females, young and old.  Aren't these assaults on innocent human life? Perhaps males should be taught from an early age that there is a responsibility for raping a female and that the penalty would be neutering the male. I can feel the shuddering now coming from the male population. One of the current solutions for a rapist is to imprison him and later to release him back into society. The penalty may as well be a slap on the wrist.


It is abhorrent that abortion clinics have been blown up and people killed by fanatics who are against abortion. What gives the anti-abortion person the right to take a life? Yes, there are many women joining the protesters and if one were to dig into their reasoning, it would be due to religious programming.


I am neither pro-abortion, nor am I anti-abortion. I never had an abortion; never even contemplated it. My platform is that a woman should have a choice. I am pro-choice. I remember growing up during the Great Depression of the last century and hearing stories of women who died from backroom abortions when abortions were illegal. Is this what we want to return to? I hope not.


Yes, abortion is an ugly word. It is also a tool for controlling an aspect of women's rights. Scratch the surface and we will find it is all about power – power over women. The male preachers, priests, and pastors spew it from the pulpits in a subversive way claiming it is a sin to kill an unformed fetus while they look the other way at the killing and maiming that is happening in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries.


Men are in the majority in our federal government as senators and representatives, and to deny a woman the right to abort gives them power over women. Yes, it is subtle but it is there. Why hasn't the Equal Rights Amendment been ratified? It only needs three more state ratifications. Why can't it get them? It is all about power over women. This is the underlying reason for being against abortion. It is time to take the blinders off and take abortion off the docket. It is time to give women equality – equal representation and equal rights.

We don't have the choice of killing a neighbor or employer who we feel is making our life inconvient, do we? Oh wait a second, I'll have to get back to you on that. I haven't read Harry Reid's final goernment controlled health care bill yet.
