Regarding abortion...

When men start having babies, then, and only then, I will concede that they have a right to play a prominent role in the abortion debate.

Until then, I'm going to be indignant about the whole issue and say that the most recent Supreme Court ruling is wrong. You heard me. Wrong. Keep in mind that the terminology used in the abortion debate is dominated by terms coined by the pro-life movement (case in point, "pro-life"... don't even get me started on "partial birth") and this argument, through propaganda, continues to gain momentum when there are much bigger issues (actual problems) that need addressing in this country. If people were half as adamant about reducing carbon emissions as they are about outlawing abortion, we might actually have a chance to maintain a livable planet long enough for the next generation to grow up in a safe environment. The abortion debate is an antiquated and primarily health-related issue that has been twisted by a right-wing agenda, and it saddens me that the pro-choice movement is now being challenged to the point of fearing the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

When is it ever a good idea to limit a woman's right to a choice of medical procedures, especially without leaving open any exceptions for serious health-related problems? It isn't. End of story. Do you really think we'd even be having this debate if men were the ones having babies? No, seriously. Think about that one.

You go girl! You're spot on! NO WAY this would have been an issue if men where having babies. Is there no way to change that? ;)

Sorry that I haven't been here in ages, still love it though!! *hugs*
