Freedom? Constitution? Not if You're A Woman.

Chains of Oppression

Pray for My Sisters

I knew this was coming. We all did. In 2001, once George W. Bush became president, my girlfriends and I knew...this was the end of Roe v Wade.

Oh sure, it's still the law of the land, but is it? Is it really? If abortion exists, but no one is there to provide it, is it still viable? Look at these statistics:

"87% of counties in the United States and 31% of metropolitan areas have no abortion services. Roe or not, an abortion maybe not be a choice for some women. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says that “the availability of abortion services is in jeopardy.”

I have mentioned the fact that Cape Cod no longer offers abortion services to women. Since I live here, and strongly believe in a woman's right to control her own destiny, this chills me to the bone.

Given the fact that abortion is legal and perfectly condoned by the Constitution, it makes me wonder who these people are who advocate for the repeal of Roe v Wade. Are these people against the Constitution? Are they against the laws of America? Are they against individual freedom? Because with all their talk of freedom, if they have their way, a woman will be forced to carry a pregnancy to term: By Order of the State!

Think about that. And then think about your own daughter or wife. Think about rape and incest and deadly pregnancies. "Oh" you say--"that won't be included." But I have one question for you...where will she be able to find a doctor to perform the abortion? If they are all terrorized out of existence, what will her choices be?

Freedom? Constitution? I don't think so. I think it's back to the Dark Ages when Church dogma reigned Supreme. Because make no mistake about it, it is the Christian Right that is behind this push for repeal. They have been at if for a very long time. Since 1973, when Roe was made the law of the land, there has been an organized assault. Don't believe me?

"Needless to say, Christian Right leaders were very pleased when Bush nominated John Roberts to the Supreme Court. “It is time to make good on those campaign promises, Mr. President,” said Troy Newman, president of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. “You have been given a mandate to end abortion in our nation by the American people who cast their votes for you.”

I think it's no love of the Constitution at all.

I think it's a huge step backwards for the women of this country. Women who had to fight long and hard for the right to control their own destiny.

Margaret Sanger, an early advocate for reproductive rights, wrote a book about her experiences working with poor women on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. One fact that always stuck in my head is the crushing poverty of these women. Due to circumstances beyond their control, they had baby after baby after baby. With very little income, and very rough living conditions, it was hard hard going for all involved. Sanger once asked one of the mother's if her doctor couldn't do something to stop her from getting pregnant. The doctor's reply? "Tell your husband to sleep on the roof."

This was the extent of birth control back in the 1800's, and I think the Christian Right would like that just fine for 2010. Even the day-after pill is being phased out of use. And why? The doctor orders it, the law protects it, but who is stopping it?

Separation of Church and State is under attack as well.

Well, you might say, doctors can still perform abortions, so what's the problem?

Here's the problem:

"Operation Rescue’s, Randall Terry zealously attempts to prevent med students from entering this field and proudly told the Post, “We want them tormented. If they become a child killer, we will make their lives miserable. It will be so costly for them socially and emotionally,” he continued. “What young person is going to want that lifestyle?” Not only are they trying to terrorize women from obtaining an abortion, they are also seeking to frighten away future doctors from practicing."

Need I say more? Targeting doctors, giving their names and adresses out on the internet, advertising what schools their kids attend, and telling them to go after them. This is terrorism, plain and simple, and it has been ongoing in America with nary a peep since 1973.

And I'm sure you all recall Bill O'Reilly's constant rants about George Tiller. Tiller the Baby Killer,Tiller the Baby Killer, over and over on his show. No surprise that Tiller was killed by an anti-abortion fanatic. Was O'Reilly yelling fire in a crowded theatre? You bet!

Now we have a Healthcare Bill passed by Congress with this mandate: No federal funding for abortions allowed for American women--American citizens who pay federal taxes will continue to be denied a legal medical procedure. For shame. I get that the Lifers had to be placated and the Bill had to pass, but it makes me angry that women's rights are thrown under the bus. Ah well, Ce La Vie.

One last point: There is a direct correlation between the tactics used by Operation Rescue and the Republican/Tea-Bagger "Kill the Bill" mantra. All kinds of things are said about this bill that don't ring true...and yet, you find yourself questioning....asking... "wait a minute, can that be true?" It's not.

Same tactic. Same people. Same results.

"For thirty-five years, the anti-abortion crusade has relentlessly pursued an activist strategy centered on promoting the false impression that women choose abortion for so-called frivolous reasons, or as a substitute for birth control, while irresponsibly delaying their abortions until the third trimester for the sake of convenience."

Yes, America; women have abortions for convenience. It's not a heart-breaking, agonizing decision. They make it as easy as deciding what clothes to wear that day.

Really?

Shame on you. For lying. For demonizing women. For not giving women credit. For not allowing people to hear the truth.

And shame on you too for using the same tactics...for lying about and distorting the truth about this Healthcare Bill.

Shame on you--and don't you ever tell me you value Freedom or the Constitution. Those are not ideals that are up for grabs to the lowest common denominator.

Either they apply to everyone, or they apply to none at all.

War on Women

Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, 2013:

"For the new Congress, that means bringing together a bipartisan pro-life majority and getting to work," Boehner said. "In accordance with the will of the people, we will again work to pass the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, formally codifying the Hyde Amendment."

Boehner said he will make it a national priority to "help make abortion a relic of the past."

"Let that be one of our most fundamental goals this year," he said.

Misogyny Laid Bare

"After arguing that Roe doesn’t have any impact on the law because it violates the Bible and merely affected “Jane Roe” alone, he said that local officials should begin prosecuting women for murder if they have an abortion."

Jobs Jobs Jobs....Was to Suppress Women

"The 112th Congress didn’t pass Sandy aide but it voted for 55 different ways of undermining women’s health care." http://www.nationalmemo.com/lol-of-the-week-far-ri

Punishment, No Crime

"I remember when I was a child sort of having the impression that pregnancy was the punishment that women experienced for having sex. That there was this, all of this, there was not only judgment but bloody, and terrible, and terrifying punishments, if you had sex and then if you wanted to terminate the pregnancy resulting from sex. It was a ridiculous means of controlling women through terror. And that fundamentally is what Roe v. Wade was intended to change. And it fundamentally did change."

In Parting

Change is slow...especially huge paradigm changes. This one has been a long time in coming...and I hope we have learned the lesson. No one is better, no one is deserving of pain. The next paradigm we live under....I hope whoever is in charge will be more humane, understanding and fair in governance. The circle goes on forever. But it is we who determine our fate.

      "When the topic of abortion comes up, men might think: Abortion is horrible; women should not have abortions. And never once consider the man who CAUSED the unwanted pregnancy. If you’re not holding men responsible for unwanted pregnancies, then you are wasting your time."

      Gabrielle Blair

      @designmom

      "Stop protesting at clinics. Stop shaming women. Stop trying to overturn abortion laws. If you actually care about reducing or eliminating the number of abortions in our country, simply HOLD MEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS"

      Wow. Listening to Trumpers downplay attempted rape that happened in high school, while remembering the months on end of "Obamas madrassa kindergarten and how hes a Muslim."

      They even went to before he was born, to his mother and grandparents.

      And this is for prez, a 4 or 8 year stint. Supreme Court is for life, and cons think high school behavior is off limits.

      I'll tell you one thing. My dad never attempted to rape anyone nor did my brother. This is not a drunken act, this

      Is a sociopath.

      And hes a gambler who doesn't know when to stop.

      Hes only there to save Trumps hide. That is NOT a qualification for a lifetime on the bench.

      Oh, and you moms and dads out there, imagine this was your daughter. I doubt you would be so blase.

      Kavanaugh said birth control is abortion inducing medicine, and employers have the right to deny it to women.

      Also caught with email telling him to "zip through" an anti abortion judge with no hearing when he was in Bushco.

      All hidden from you by the GOP in OUR gvt., so you dont know your supreme court will be ruled by freaks.

      Kavanaugh is an extremist and a pervert.

      Who else would painstakingly copy down every salacious detail of a sexual affair?

      Ick.

      Hes as gross as Pence. Imo.

      These are not modern day men. They are extreme religious zealots.

      “Staffers for Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA) participated in what a circuit judge in Richmond, VA, characterized as “forgery” and “out and out fraud.”

      The staffers were attempting to put a third-party spoiler candidate on the ballot, apparently in the hopes that doing so would split the vote and help Taylor fend off his Democratic challenger in this fall’s midterm election.”

      No one with a shred of sense can say he cares about human rights.

      In his mind, a fertilized egg has more rights than a grown woman.

      Leslie McCowen 

      7 months ago from Cape Cod, USA

      You anti-abortionists have not figured this out. Your plan has holes.

      First of all, women and men have evolved. We no longer look on women as brood mares.

      Given your philosophy, it's apparent you still do.

      More birth control, more women's clinics, more education: THIS will prevent abortion.

      This idea of yours that sex must be perfunctory is older than muddddd

      Second, what will you do with rich women who have unwanted pregnancies, and fly to Europe for abortions?

      Seems to me, you must devise a plan to keep them here and pregnant....

      Maybe a pregnancy prison? You could make it like a white collar federal prison...you know, the "nicer" variety?

      And, you would need the help of doctors to alert you to a pregnancy flight risk.....spies for the state, if you will.

      Every gyno would have to be trained to call the authorities on every woman discovered pregnant, to ensure she has no way of escaping the law: that she must carry to term.

      Third, what will you do with these unwanted babies?

      What will you do with them? More orphanages? Who will pay for that? YOU are cutting food stamps and healthcare for living, breathing humans already here!!

      Who will pay for these babies? For life. 18 at the least.

      You see, none of this makes sense.

      If god gives the childbearing function to women.....why are YOU messing with it? If god trusts us with the process, doesn't god trust us all the way?

      Miscarriage is a natural function of life.....you don't accuse god of murdering babies in the womb, do you?

      Why do you demonize his chosen vessels???????

      You are not thinking this through, and you are not respecting gods creation....simply acting with emotion, and why? Because the sperm comes from a man, and so is sacred above all else...that's why.

      The life already here means nothing to you...is totally cut out of your equation.

      So, excuse me of I don't follow your philosophy.

      I find it an offense to mankind.

      Religion is man-made, to suit men. Blah!

      "That was part of life’: Elderly Alabama voters say Roy Moore’s teen molestation used to be considered normal

      Vice News reporter Alexandra Jaffe went to Alabama to talk with two elderly voters who each said that it used to be incredibly common to see older men make sexual advances on underage teenage girls.

      “The things that happened to women back then, they didn’t tell it because they wouldn’t have been believed,”

      “Mean teachers touched us, maybe inappropriately, but we just didn’t say anything,” she said. “That was part of life… The women, you know, the underdog, we always had to do what the men said.”

      *****

      If you think it's over, think again.

      GOP has put pro personhood language in the tax bill....paving the way to ban abortion outright.....

      The attack on the underdog never ends.

      Make no mistake, that is the end goal of patriarchy: locking women up, shutting women down. And any who deem them of equal status and deserving of equality can go down with them.

      Oh, and btw.....

      You, "pro-life" congress....arent you supporting gun silencers and armor piercing bullets???

      Yes, you.

      Next time pm netanyahu comes here, i hope you dont give him any standing ovations....given the fact that his gvt provides abortions for free to any woman who needs one.

      Or is it just american women you consider baby killers?

      And a party that condones mass-killing assault rifles for private ownership has the nerve to speak on pro life?

      Miss me with that bullsh*t!

      American sharia.

      Guess whats in the graham cassidy bill?

      Exchange plans offering abortion services will be illegal starting in 2018.

      Now, i may be naive, but isnt that putting religion over my constitutional rights? And being done by government?

      My oh my. And you thought it really was about draining the swamp didnt you?

      Idiot. Its about enslaving people to your crude ideology.

      And ensuring that extreme wealth increases for the top few.

      I dont know what you call that...the united arab emirates??

      Good luck white working class men. Youll have a hard time getting ahead without women's help. And you can kiss that goodbye.

      When i went to my cousin's wedding, before the ceremony the pastor got up on stage and said, "let us contemplate our worthlessness"

      I was shocked. Is this what they teach?

      Yes. And more so for women. They dont CARE about us...our lives.....our desires......our goals.

      We are recepticals to carry the golden liquid that comes out of the golden flask (phallus)

      Thats it. It's worship of the male. If women somehow got pregnant without sperm from men, they wouldnt give two cents about a fertilized egg.

      But since sperm comes from a man, and god is a man, it must be worshipped.

      What a load of bull!

      Aborting a fetus is as old as time....older than your male god.

      Fundamentalism is a great mind f&ck.

      Here is my advice: If you dont like abortion, dont have one.

      It ends there.

      Go adopt a child.

      Or if you really are pro life, join an anti war group.

      Protest trumps drone strikes and wars.

      Otherwise, what a fully grown, living breathing human being does with her body parts is her business.

      Stop trying to have it all ways.

      You are NOT pro life.

      You are NOT the freedom caucus.

      You are Gladys Kravitz with a microphone and control of the entire usa gvt.

      And in case you are blind, your goal is to strip people of freedoms in favor of authoritarian rule.

      abortion is down 14% from 3 years ago. people in the field say its due to improved access to birth control because of the aca.

      both of which--aca and pp-- are being systematically destroyed by this new administration.

      El Salvador banned abortion in 1998. I just read story of young 17 yrs old girl who was raped. Despite that, she wanted to carry to term . But, she miscarried instead.... She was sentenced to 30 yrs in prison for murder.

      This is what is coming here to America, in spite of the fact we have Roe v Wade as law.

      States are ignoring the constitution and writing laws around it.

      I strongly suggest any woman living under Republican run state get out if there now.

      While you cry crocodile tears over "Tyrant Obama wants my guns", Tyrant Republicans actually and in reality are trying to own my uterus!

      "the 2010 elections, which gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives and many legislatures across the country, emboldening abortion opponents. According to a new Guttmacher Institute analysis, states enacted 288 new abortion restrictions from 2011 through 2015 - nearly as many as were passed in the previous 15 years. "

      ......

      Now they are going after birth control....

      "In Hobby Lobby, the issue was whether the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act gave for-profit companies whose owners objected to birth control on religious grounds the right to deny contraception benefits to their employees; by a 5–4 vote, the court ruled yes."

      ****

      2016 will see 7 more cases like this.

      Can I ASK...what is an owner doing in MY PRIVATE LIFE in the first place?

      You faux freedom fighters are full of it.

      You want freedom to have 30 shot clips, vest-piercing bullets, ak 47s....

      But don't think a woman has the right to birth control!

      Please tell me o religious ones.....where are Guns mentioned in the Bible?

      Does the commandment thou shalt not kill have the addendum: "Unless it's by a gun, you KNOW Jesus LUVS them"

      “They’re kind of pulling a Patriot Act,” says OTI’s Greene. “They’ve got this bill that’s kicked around for years and had been too controversial to pass, so they’ve seen an opportunity to push it through without debate. And they’re taking that opportunity.”

      Stealth taking away of rights. Can't do it outright....have to "slip it in". Now business can just give all your internet info to NSA/FBI/Law Enforcement. And you claim to be worried about your grandkids....the internet generation.

      231 new laws to prevent women accessing their Constitutional right to an abortion.

      Not to mention the 42 years of terror, cause Radicals can't respect the Law. Think their ideology has to rule all people. And actually think they have the right to kill for it.

      If I ever have time to do this, i'm writing a hub: ALEC and the NRA: Killing for Profit

      Sons of b**ches for real. REAL, not some funny pretend-land where guns are good and only good people use them. Hey--a good person turns bad on liquor. Guns don't care. A good person turns bad on anger, jealousy, riled up Stochastic terrorism, practiced by the Right Wing media factory.

      They ALEC and NRA are charlatans...merchants of death FOR REAL

      "The retail sale of machine guns has been barred by federal law since the gangster era but, as uncovered by the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD), one year ago at ALEC's "policy summit" in Arizona, the NRA obtained unanimous support from the corporate and lawmaker members of ALEC's Task Force for "amending" ALEC's "Consistency in Firearms Regulation Act" to expressly bar cities from banning "machine guns." Other provisions of that bill prevent cities from banning armor-piercing bullets and from banning efforts to alter guns to make them more deadly if the state does not do so. It also bars cities from suing gun manufacturers for gun deaths based on the theory of liability used by governments to sue tobacco manufacturers for smoking deaths."

      They have long list of this crap...and if not for money than why?

      2000--Koch Industries was chair of board ALEC....

      Smith and Wesson agreed to put safety measures on their guns.....ALEC fought to prevent them getting police contracts to manufacture police dpt guns!

      Just what is this about?

      Safety measures nixed.....they want guns everywhere--stores, bars, schools....what is this about if not profit?? Death merchants. PERIOD.

      see for yourself Ties between ALEC and NRA:

      http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/National_Rifl...

      It's WAY past time we keep pretending guns are not the problem. Guns ARE the problem.

      They are a huge profit-making industry..why you think they always have to sell war? Sell fear?

      If people think they have right to them...then they need to be as regulated as cars, if not more.

      And I'm talking the manufacturers!!!!!

      And stop with the crap "criminals will just blah blah blah"

      We can at least make it harder for them can't we?

      I need to know one good reason why ALEC and NRA barred cities from banning machine guns and vest piercing bullets.

      Merchants of Death. Big moola baby

      And just think...the leftovers can be given to your CIA trained ISIS.

      WAR WAR WAR

      FEAR FEAR FEAR

      I for one, am trying to figure out what is behind the anti abortion terrorists.....OBVIOUSLY it has nothing to do with life, since these terrorists always scream loudest for war.

      Obviously, their own God allows abortion, women have miscarriages all the time.

      As of yet, i dont have the words for it, only a feeling. It has something to do w the whole history of evangelical America. Like they have to suppress joy, wildness of spirit....have a great need to control. What really befuddles me the most is women who go along w it against who they are!

      Anway, people who like to fill our public waves w terror talk should have a look at Operation Rescue....if you care about terrorism. Homegrown doesnt make it any less frightening or vicious.

      Just like black Americans have had it with police terror...this event may finally make people see the terror of the anti abortion crusade.

      Ongoing since 1973....and it has been very effective.

      I have news for you....women are a sub class here too: due to Patriarchal religions and women who uphold men over their own gender.

      In America 2015: women are forced to carry pregnancies to term whether they want to or not.

      As a consequence, many are having their children taken away from them because they don't have the financial wherewithal to support them.

      They are being thrown in prison for losing their pregnancies....

      And a fetus in HER womb is considered sacred and valuable, while she is just a brood-mare and a sl*t.

      We don't need lectures on other countries and their religions....we have enough problems with our own right here.

      American women are sub par to a collection of fetal tissue cells.....and they want to talk about Islam.

      I wonder what this "liberal agenda" is?

      I know Obama is the anti-Christ and has his gay lovers killed.--this one?

      I know Moochelle is really a man.--this one?

      I know if one of the Obama daughter's was a pregnant teen: we'd never hear the end of the lack of morals of the Obama's as parents, right Palin?--this one?

      I know I for one, would like to see guns disappear from the face of the universe.

      But we can't even get assault weapons, high-capacity clips, and vest-piercing bullets removed.

      I'd like for all these men and women in black to stay out of women's private lives....

      But with Big Gubmint making 231 new laws regulating my uterus: that's not happening any time soon.

      I'd love for Muslims, Mexicans, Africans, Natives, Japanese,Chinese, Indians....all manner of Americans be considered Americans.

      But that's not happening soon either.

      This liberal's agenda is to get as far away from the far right wing as I can.

      This liberal would personally welcome the seccession of any red states that want to go.

      This liberal wants to live and be happy: Not continue to witness the carnage, hatred and vicious brutality associated with this philosophy of Superiority.

      Not to mention the immaturity--bullies crying victim, this type of thing.

      I can only speak for myself, not even one fourth of one percent of all liberals.

      But this is MY agenda--you can bet your bippy!!!

      Women are being imprisoned for losing their fetuses.

      “States are saying that they know what is best for fertilized eggs, and because they know best they can tell a pregnant women that she’s a criminal and that she must do whatever her doctor – or a social worker, or law enforcement officer, or lawyer appointed to represent her fetus – says.”

      Get that? fetuses have lawyers now. Something in YOUR OWN BODY has a lawyer to use against you!

      Personhood....anytime after conception, that fetus has rights of full human being OVER AND ABOVE the person whose body is housing it!

      Take painkillers for a bad back, and you're 1 hour pregnant? Guilty of crime.

      Don't know that you're pregnant, ands have a glass of wine.....Guilty of facilitating fetal alcohol syndrome.

      Of course, you can avoid prison if you have the cash....

      “The way I look at it, Alabama is bankrolling itself by extracting a tax on poor pregnant women.”

      And, depriving LIVING BREATHING CHILDREN of a mother--who is sent to prison for 10 yrs for a stillbirth.

      *******

      And you gun-lovers p*ss and moan that background checks are a burden on your rights and freedom????

      You same people who are anti-choice, pro Personhood are the same ones crying about your rights being denied.

      You have ZERO, no, BELOW zero standing on anything!

      And I want you to suffer the same fate as these women.

      Zimmerman....get your fat a$$ in prison where you belong. And Wilson--you can join him!

      poor poor gun owners.....a weapon of DEATH has more rights than a woman in America!

      Can we get out of your desire to run things by your decree, and into the real world???

      "Once a baby is born, someone must care for it. Some women get abortions because they cannot adequately do this themselves. (If a mother is addicted to drugs or an alcoholic — and this is a whole other issue — she may not even be able to properly care for a fetus, never mind a baby.) Approximately one million abortions occur in the US each year. Already nearly 400,000 children are living in the US’s notoriously fraught foster care system — over a quarter of these children are eligible for adoption but have not been adopted.

      Some women will raise their children themselves. Of the women who have abortions, 85 percent are unmarried, so an abortion ban is bound to create a plethora of single mothers, causing a far greater burden on women than men. Women who raise children may take a career hit, losing wages and opportunities for advancement while working part time jobs or taking time off to care for children. There is no such career hit for men.

      Even without a career hit, the financial burden of raising a child is nothing to sneeze at (more than $245,000 for a middle-income family in the US), and over 40 percent of abortions are performed on women living below the poverty line. Who will support these women financially?"

      Who? Pro-Lifers? Bwahahahaha

      Solution:

      "Easy access to birth control is probably the best path to reducing unwanted pregnancies, but it currently consumes significant time, energy, and money — though it’s hard to imagine that if men experienced the same obstacles to having safe sex, and the same potential consequences if they didn’t, that the whole system wouldn’t be run differently. (Gloria Steinem once remarked that if men menstruated, sanitary supplies would be “federally funded and free.”)

      --Ermmmm, Viagra is, isn't it??

      Face it--you keep saying it's not a war on women.....but just look at the facts.

      Viagra....part of insurance plan, cause you know: men gotta have it!

      Birth control.....no way should I pay because a woman wants to be a sl*t. Right?!

      And you pro-life women.....be honest: what is your opinion of women who have had an abortion?

      Defers class, race, social-standing.......

      Women are always at the bottom of the heap.

      You want abortion-free society? Vasectomize all boys. They can reverse it later when you deem it proper.

      But that'll never happen in a million years.......why?

      Cause removing a fetus is murder.

      War is justified.

      Guns are a sacred right.

      bang bang.

      They have almost done it. Since 2010...they have been very busy misogynists.

      Elect a Repub as prez, with House and Senate Republican--see what happens...Huckster already said he would stop abortion, regardless of law and Supreme Court.

      You cannot even see Dictators when they are telling you they are!

      But I know people are fine with it---they will accept a dictator as long as he implements their religion.

      You still don't see the tie between this, and the Mullahs of Iran, or the Taliban leaders....do you?

      "America is quite hostile toward its working mothers. Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, executive director of momsrising.org, says part of the problem is that most policymakers can’t relate to the issues moms face. More than 80 percent of the 114th Congress is male, a figure Rowe-Finkbeiner says explains why lawmakers don’t see childcare access as an urgent issue.

      “Often, childcare has been thought of as a woman’s individual problem,” she told AlterNet. “If one person can’t make it happen, then it’s her fault. We have a structural issue with childcare we have to solve together and not an epidemic of personal failing.”
