Can we all agree Stupak and his stupid amendment are Bad News for women…

…and those who like women, approve of women’s right to have choices, choices in general, not throwing women’s health by the wayside as soon as it looks like politics are trumping workable healthcare once again?

We agree? Good.

Now take action.

Abortion is a medical procedure. When a woman is not in a position to desire or care for a child, it is a necessary one. Last time I checked, medical insurance was intended to cover the cost of medical procedures.

I don’t believe anti-choicers should be allowed to bring their religious opposition to a procedure that allows women to choose whether they will carry and bear a child, and I certainly don’t want universal healthcare at the expense of my right to exercise my options.

    As they say at Planned Parenthood, “Abortion should be safe, legal, and rare!” and more importantly “Every child a wanted child!”
    It would be oh-so-lovely if no-one ever had to have an abortion, but the politicosocial climate that discourages abortion rights also tends to discourage sex education, availability of functional birth control, etc., etc. In other words, it encourages unwanted children or illegal and unsafe abortions.

    • Agreed, agreed, agreed. I’m shocked anyone is shocked at the rise in STDs in the last 4 years. Spend valuable sex ed classtime preaching nothing but abstinence and tchyah, nobody’s going have the faintest idea what birth control is all about.
