The War On Women …
In this era of trump, it appears as if inappropriate behavior on so many levels has not only found folks inciting, perpetrating and or engaging in intimidation; it also seems ok all over the World not just here in the good’ole US of A. There are folks assaulting women, beating POC, some are participating in hate crimes, others are not only tossing out threats like these things aren’t against the law. Now, there are reports of folks more willing to commit mass murder in the name of MAGA ….it has to stop
In 2016, we saw conservative activists and Republican Governors assaulting not only a woman’s right to choose but making it incredibly difficult for Women to get to a clinic by quietly closing them one after the other. Thing is, these clinics also provide other services …like mammograms, cancer screenings, referrals and when it comes to abortions the idea that someone least we talk about a potus would state that women should receive some sort of punishment, gets a …wtf?
Question, do you think anyone in the White House has done research on unsafe abortions at all? or cares?
In a nation created by and of immigrants, the current guy, holding power as POTUS, seems to lean toward white nationalism, was is a birther and his War On Women flag was confirmed when he gave employers control over a woman’s body… that’s my take. It’s bad enough that clinics are being systematically closed by those leaning right, but now women in need of any type of reproductive procedure must travel several miles for it! If they can travel. These clinics, which are there to help women and men, are now left without safe affordable health care close enough that delivers “health care” in all its forms. The loss of these clinics and the impact on regular women rarely get news coverage; continue to be quietly eliminated along with killing the reputations of doctors.
Unfortunately, Doctors in the business of helping women by providing general health care as well as safe reproductive products/ procedures have suffered over thirty years of intimidation, threats and violence, were in the crosshairs of a republican trifecta with an odd take on family values! It is a sad day when their strange family values are pushing women, forcing them to fight for or struggle with health issues that affluent women probably do not!
We must remind folks of what facilities like Planned Parenthood do…
Why is it so difficult for people like brett kavanaugh to believe and accept that women at the age of 17 and older who request a reproductive procedure understand that it is a right, not a privilege. While it seems like providing a place where safe affordable health care is given is the right thing to do, oddly enough it still needs to be reiterated to republicans…so let us say it over and over …Women exercising their right to choose at this moment is constitutional! It’s about Freedom and CHOICE. I have to admit, one would assume that republicans, pledging to be Constitutionalist would back away from actions that clearly conflict with laws on the books least we talk about the idea that freedom and choice sound like at least two beliefs conservatives seem to push whenever possible but of course only when it suits their ideology … going out of their way to disrespect a woman’s intelligence and or the relationship with their doctor’s by legislating against it, is shameful.
