No! NO! NO! This has got to stop, now!

I'm tired of having to fear for my right to choose what to do with my own body! I'm tired of having to fear for women across the country and their rights! I'm tired of fearing for the future of women's rights! If this goes through, our rights, not only as women but as human beings are being thrown back into history! I don't know about you, but I'm not willing to have to start all over again. I appreciate everything our Great-Grandmothers, Grandmothers and Mothers have done for us. Don't you?
Read on and find out what I'm ranting about and what you can do to help.

Our opponents won't stop trying to push their narrow political agenda on the rest of us. If they succeed now, women will bear the consequences for years — decades — to come. Our only hope of stopping any anti-choice side deal with Representative Stupak and fixing the Nelson amendment is to show Congress how many of us are willing to stand up for women's health.

Congress is on the verge of passing the most severe new restriction on health insurance coverage for abortion in 35 years - and this might be our last chance to stop them. I just took action with Planned Parenthood and told Congress: Pass health care reform. Say no to Stupak. Say no to the Nelson amendment. Say no to new restrictions on abortion coverage. Will you join me?


  1. Hey sweetie I gave you a blog award. Small potatoes compared to passing healthcare reform w/out any reproductive rights nonsense, but hey, good energy helps us all.

  2. I saw! Thank you! *^_^* Maybe my comment on your post didn't go through...? Hmmm...

  3. *Laughs* We are all handing the awards to the same people :D

    I have watched the Roe v. Wade situation for many years now and it makes my skin crawl.

  4. We are a lovely, little, tight-knit, witch community on here, aren't we? *~_^* I love it!

  5. This all makes me sick. As much as I hate to admit it, Obamacare SUCKS.

    I'm so disappointed in his presidency so far...and I was such an avid supporter. I even donated money to his campaign. :/

  6. Hmmm...the thing we must remember is that it is not all one person's fault. I'm not saying that Obama is the second coming (if I believed in Jesus), or that it is all the Repulicans' faults. I am saying, however, that we can't assume that Obama can turn everything around in the short amount of time he's been there. Yes, I'm disappointed in the stimulus plan, bank bailouts and the probability of women's health issues and right being ignored with this new plan. But, I think, if we all tell the government that we will not stand for it, we have a chance to help Obama run the country. He's not the end all/be all of this country; its people, we the people are. Chin up. It does suck now, but we'll get through it one way or another. We'll continue to fight, if we have to. *^_^*
