It’s about time ...WAY past time
...that people take control of their own destiny, their own lives.
There are so many priests, preachers, and assorted shamans out there -"men of the cloth"-
who have the unmitigated gall, the sheer arrogance, of claiming to speak for God, and with God.
And we ...we must listen, and follow, and obey. Or so they say.
They claim a direct pipeline to the Almighty!
God did this, God told me. God loves that. God hates this.
God wants this. Oh, and another coin in the basket before you leave please,...as God demands.
It's gotten so bad that now they actually think they ARE God
- with THE “RIGHT” TO TAKE WOMEN’S LIVES!
ENOUGH already! I say to them all:
Go back to whatever burrow you came from, you charlatans, and leave us -and our country- alone.
For we're a free and proud people, and will remain so
- without your shameful meddling in both our private lives, and our public institutions.

""If Savita’s family hadn’t bravely made the decision to go public, would her senseless death have come to light? Have the lives of more women been sacrificed because a fetus was deemed more important? Even when it was known that the fetus would not survive? When, technically in Ireland an abortion is permitted if there is a “real and substantial risk to the life of the mother?” These are questions that we cannot ignore and questions that demand answers.""
The audacity of this woman to become pregnant and not able to deliver according to the spokes"men" of gods will! Abortion is NEVER necessary to save the life of the mother,(we prefer she die if she cannot produce).
How dare this woman have any concern for her own life? What makes HER think she has any right to self defense? What makes her think she is of any value outside of her god given role as brood mare?
AND all of the above is exactly the thinking of the anti-choice anti-woman movement, no matter how they protest these true and to the point labels.
It will be a great day when a woman is allowed to live and make her own medical/health decisions across the globe, and male phallic worshipping cults die.

Agreed. I took control of my life over 20 years ago when I kicked the toxic baggage of the catholic church to the curb permanently, and haven't regretted that choice for a second. It's wonderful what a woman can do when she is FREE from the toxic influence of a church that demands women give them the power to make ALL their sexual and reproductive decisions for them.
It is a terrible thing for women who live in countries dominated by religions that classify them as second-class citizens.
