November is approaching fast and Americans will go back to the polls for our mid-term elections. If we haven’t got enough going on with Trump still wreaking havoc in our country, we have to worry about the direction some of our state governors are taking us. Denying our history in the classroom, banning certain books and taking away a woman’s reproductive rights. What century are we in?
I just hope the women of this country will rise up and deliver us once more.
Being a woman I cannot tell you how offended I am that men in government think they have a right to tell me what I can and cannot do with my body. Here in the US the Republican Party, in a mounting number of states under their control, is changing the law with regard to what women may do with regard to their reproductive rights. In some instances, taking back their rights altogether. It is really quite alarming.
Then yesterday a document was leaked from the Supreme Court of the United States showing that the conservative judges, who are in the majority, are considering overturning a federal law from 1973 called Roe v Wade. Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction. If this happens then there’s o saying what might follow.
What century are we living in? Hmmm, I feel women’s marches coming on. I will gladly join one in protest.
I’m going to stop right there as this in my fun One Liner Wednesday post and I need a good laugh today.
