...the women's movement in America speaks up and takes a stand to defend their rights to choose, they have to stop the Stupak Amendment

If the anti-abortion movement took a tenth of the energy they put into noisy theatrics and devoted it to improving the lives of children who have been born into lives of poverty, violence, and neglect, they could make a world shine. ~Michael Jay Tucker, author


Pro Choice is a hot button for religious groups especially the Catholics, Evangelical and fundamentalist Christians. On this one issue they have a common cause and they are politically active in addressing politicians to limit abortions and pass legislation to restrict health care money going to pay for abortions. This attack on abortion and the rights of women to have control over their own reproductive process disproportionally victimizes poor and low income women. This is also an issue of separation of church and state. Religious groups are attempting to impose their values on everyone regardless of their beliefs. The right of a women to decide to have an abortion has been supported by the supreme court. The Stupak amendment restricts abortion funding by health care money. This is a clear act of religious beliefs being imposed on the political process.
Women have always been second class citizens to the Conservatives White agenda and their bodies are not their own. If it was up to Conservatives women still wouldn't have the vote. It is white conservative men deciding what women can and cannot do with their bodies. It is time that the women's movement in America speaks up and takes a stand to defend their rights to choose, they have to stop the Stupak Amendment. Women are in no way second class citizens and if this amendment is allowed to stand that is what they become. To their credit the Democratic women representatives in the house were out spoken in opposition to the Stupid, oops there I go again, I meant the Stupak Amendment; it should be called the Stupid Amendment. This is a fight that women across America need to win.
