It was announced just this last week that Mitt Romney would choose his potential VP. His choice selection came as no shock to those who know Romney’s ultra conservative style. Romney chose Paul Ryan, an ultra conservative, with a record for siding the majority of the time with party lines. It means that he agrees with his fellow Republicans to a flaw. In fact he votes so much on their side that he is ranked as one of the highest conservative voters. Why might this interest women and those who are pro choice? Well Ryan also believes that abortion is wrong. Not just wrong in the case of accidental or unwanted pregnancy, but so wrong that even in cases of incest, and rape he does not believe abortion should be allowed.
This has been a tedious year with women struggling to keep their rights to be considered human beings, and not just second rate baby makers. It has come at the hands of men like Romney and Ryan who feel that women are second class to their biological nature, and must be victimized by it. This is not about potential lives, because they are not lives yet, but the women being forced to undergo invasive procedures, and stressful exams, being put under the microscope of scrutiny are lives. We are half of the population of the world, and yet are treated as second class. But that is not the point at this juncture. The prominent point here is the battle for our reproductive rights and the threat imposed by the arrogance and ignorance of men like the Republicans. I do want to extend that criticism to the women within the party as well. They are as invasive, extreme, and radical as their counterparts, if not more.
Roe vs Wade was a battle grounds for morality and decision making on the part of women, on behalf of their own bodies. It was a judicial legislation to ownership of our sexual organs by us, and the right to determine what comes of those decisions. Now the Republicans seek to retract ownership and give it to the state, and men. An unprecedented insult to women everywhere. In part because no legislation exists governing the use, application, distribution, and disposal of semen, unlike the counterparts which are eggs, fertilized or otherwise.
This sexual bias has existed for millions of years. But the absurdity is in the protection of a fetus over that of the person in whom it resides. The cost to the woman who has the unwanted pregnancy, or risky pregnancy can be astounding, if not life threatening, and damaging. Men like Romney and Ryan are not concerned about those women, in fact they have little to no use for them. They are vessels for harboring life, and nothing more. Once the child is born they are all for cutting welfare, WIC, governmental aid and head start. They are for slashing after school care programs, and social security. basically anything which would aid in the raising and care for this child who was unwanted but forced to be born.
In the mean time they do not address crises in poverty, global warming, continued deforestation, overpopulation, and water supplies and food resources. They only want to stop abortions. All other areas of governmental aid and conservation escape them. They are not bound by reality. They are bound by making more money, protecting corporations, globalizing capitalism, eliminating fair businesses, and fair pay legislation. They are even against race based initiatives to educate those who live in poverty as minorities, which would end the cycle of poverty and give better opportunities to those minorities.
In other words, they are dangerous, wreck-less and scary men to vote for. Ones that come packaged in nice suits, and have warm glowing smiles on their faces. Ones with a self interest vote, and a money making scheme in their hearts. The best way for them to put the choke hold on America is by putting America back the way it was before the 60′s and women were given rights to work outside the home, and vote, and be empowered. With them in control they can manipulate our future. Officially eliminating half of the work force of American and making women dependent on the earnings of men, and once again establishing us as second class citizens. Don’t believe me, do some reading.
I actually used to side with Republicans, till I caught on to what they were really doing. In fact I voted with them, and it became clear which way the vote was heading. I was literally voting against my own interest. I can admit to my ignorance now because I can see it clear as day. Once I saw the jobs heading over seas and more Christian values being forced on people regardless of their choice, I knew to be afraid. Now as a woman I am terrified. These radical agenda Republicans are vicious tyrants who want to be nothing more than pampered billionaires while the rest of America struggles. They have nothing but blame, hate, and disregard for women. And women having the right to choices over their bodies is infuriating to them. Highly.
Women are a vital part of the infrastructure of this nation. The right to use and determine the actions of their own bodies is vital. Man like Romney and Ryan symbolize the extreme nature and thinking of this nation at this point. They are detrimental to the future of women’s rights. They are a hostile religious group of billionaire bullies looking to force their opinion on legislation. In essence they symbolize the sickness of America and the current status we are in. Women should by natural law, and by federal law be able to govern their own bodies as they see fit.
No government body should regulate a woman’s ovulation, conception, birth, or abortion. It is the height of misogyny to watch as our values are questioned, or morals are scrutinized and our bodies are invaded. Government should be about equality of all its citizens. If they can regulate what I do with my body then by all means a man and his sperm, ejaculations, masturbation’s, and possession of potential life giving materials should be marched onto capitol hill and dictated to him as well. Any woman who is in the possession of a mans sperm should then get to legally decide what and how to utilize it. So that equality can exist among the sexes. Otherwise the legislation is sexually biased against women and therefore sexist. Other wise the legislation is based upon privileged and not on fairness and equality.
When you vote this November, vote with equality in mind, and make sure the Republicans on Capitol Hill hear you loud and clear. Women are not for just breeding purposes, and we are not second class. We will not be relegated to second classed, and oppressed based upon genitalia. We will not surrender the rights to our body to the state, unless the state is willing to fully be responsible for our welfare and care, and pay us for our services to this nation. We are not just a dumping ground for sperm, cooking and cleaning machines, and possessions. We will not be subject to religious doctrines which we do not normally submit to, and will not relinquish our constitutional right to freedom from those religions and their dogmatic stances. We are Women, and we have a voice, and united we can bring this country to its knees. We are the voice of the mothers, and sisters, and aunts, and the proud working Americans. We are not just reproductive organs. We have names and faces, and we will be heard. Not just today on Capitol Hill, but from every corner of this nation, and we will not be silenced by the likes of men who degraded us. But we will march forward and stand tall. For my sister, for my mother, for the women I cherish and love. Vote for your right to be a beautiful part of nature. Vote WOMAN.
