Yup ..what a waste..burning good clothing .Lol
But as I say the abortion movement has eclipsed everything else. To the point most people cannot talk without agitation ..Or in some cases,screaming protests
And politicians on both sides ..use this ..instead of trying to make a better country.
Where has the outrage over the debt gone...it is humongous compared to what Bush had ...
And our grand kids will pay dearly .
Oh well No one listens to people my age ..But I still vite..useless as it is in my county.
If no Roe...We would have stayed focused ..had mire responsibility fir
Ourselves using either smarter sex ..No sex without a life partner...OR
CONTRACEPTION. or call three.
Life has become expendable. Because life in the womb is...And we did NOT Used to feel that way.
I know we cannot undo it sadly ..But I wish we had s rated focused on
Family planning ..not killing preview babies...
It has not eclipsed everything else. The fight for equality continues. Again, you just hear about it more, and that is the fault of those who are working against equal rights in that area.

And no, a woman cannot have equality until she is free to make all of her own medical decisions. Just like she cannot have equality until she makes as much money for doing the same job as a man. Just like she cannot have equality until she has equal access to education as a man. It's all part and parcel of the fight for equality. It's all important.

Rose, now you are being na´ve. Life has always been expendable to humanity. Always. How can you look at the history of war and slavery and pretend it hasn't? Every soldier is/has been considered expendable to the gov'ts that send them to war. RvW added nothing to that.

Abortion has always been around, and used. It was mostly herbal, aside from the objects inserted into the vagina. What has changed throughout history is the fact that it went from being considered no one's business what a woman did with her own pregnancy, to others thinking they had the right to tell her what she can and cannot do. RvW merely put the decision, as much as possible, back into the hands it belongs in, the woman who is the one gestating, and facing possible risks to life and health.

I disagree. Reproductive rights are part of the fight for equality, not it's "banner". You just hear about it more, because it's controversial.
As for the 60s, the methods may have been different between groups (the shock value of bra burning, for example), but the goal was the same...equality.
As my grandmother used to say, if we were all the same, they'd only make green paint.
For what it's worth, and I may be wrong, perhaps the big difference between the feminist fight for rights in the 60's and today is that back then, reproductive issues were not at the forefront simply because it was felt that those were "womens issues" and the government was not going buck wild like they are today over it. In the last few years, there have been so many attempted bills at regulating abortion, because they know they can't outright ban it, and some politicians are trying to include contraception as well, which is why we see more women stepping up to defend those issues today as opposed to the 60's.

My point was that equality is the goal, and that RvW has not done anything that wasn't already there, except allow women to make their own medical decisions.

If you wanted to believe women were superior, that's on you.

1 in 4 pregnancies do not make it to term. Let's us not pretend that every pregnancy conceived is guaranteed to live.

I dont know where you're getting your 50 million number, but How about focusing on those born? Every day, approximately 18,000 children die from hunger and undernutrition. In 2008, 9 million BORN children died because of hunger and malnutrition.

Let us not pretend that the "pro life" movement cares or blinks an eye about "innocent" children dying.

Not once in your nonsensical gobbledygook did you mention the littl humans in the womb. Not once. You yourself clearly said that DNA results indicate "a human" (noun) is in the womb.

You go as far as to compare an innocent, defenseless preborn baby to a soldier in war. You are a baby terrorist who is calling for Jihad against preborn babies.

While you're yapping about "feminism" 2,000 baby females are being slaughtered today in U.S. abortuaries. With YOUR support & encouragment.

According to bHitler, women will not have equality until:

Equal pay
Equal access to education
Legal right to kill their babies in their womb...including baby women.

Oh I Never thought we were superior..just less willing to take lives,for the ""good"" " of whatever .

I was wrong..We are now equal to men in lives taken ..PPreborn or not

:(

And it makes me sad. That we could not stick to family planning by contraception to reach our goals ..

And yes the disappointment is definitely mine ..

Many more do stick to family planning than don't. Most women still choose to continue even unplanned pregnancies than don't.

Still, the option must be there, or we don't have the equal right of men to make our own medical decisions.

Do you really think you'd hear so much about this if it wasn't for those trying to take that equal right away, or restrict it so much that it can't BE accessed by many of those who may choose to do so?
