Supreme Threat

“We will not go back” is what the woman protester said at the hearing for Supreme Court applicant Kavanaugh. As they hauled her away she kept repeating it.

American women, if you want to keep Roe v. Wade intact you better be writing your representatives in congress. The alt-right evangelicals are champing at the bit to deny women the choice of bringing a child into the world.

Next time you are sitting at your family holiday table just know that one in three women have had an abortion. Most of them will never tell you that they have. But they are your daughters, nieces, mothers and grandmothers who at one time found themselves pregnant and made the choice that Roe v. Wade ensures.

It’s part of the ongoing war on women — women who still make 78 cents on the dollar doing the same job a man does. This is what we should be focusing on: more wage equity.

You may not want to get an abortion, but in some cases it becomes a choice — cases like your teenage daughter, who may want to exercise her right some day. Only the GOP would want to force a woman to have a baby she doesn’t want. Do we want to go back to back-alley abortions?

I think women should withhold sex until their men get vasectomies. Yes, I’m serious; just think about it. What a better way to slide the responsibility to men. Women can use the day after pill until then.

Our body, our choice. Got it?
