|So, you think
that those Constitutional Amendments and all the other laws that ostensibly
gave us equal human rights and abolished slavery are worth a tinker's dam?
Did you believe your rights as a human being are protected by law and cannot be denied? Do you think Roe v. Wade insures your right to a legal abortion?
There is no federal or state law that prohibits an adult woman from terminating her pregnancy. Judge Conahan is following church law instead of state and federal law.
Church law has always considered woman and the contents of her womb as THE PROPERTY of man.
This is what we can expect under the Bush regime that is dedicated to destroying the separation of church and state. This is why responsible lawmakers in the Senate are screening his judicial appointments so carefully.
From this vomitorious treatment by Judge Conahan and all the other atrocities that have gone unreported by the media, we all must understand that we can no longer rely on laws that promise REPRODUCTIVE CHOICE or EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW.
At this writing we do still have the choice to vote. Democrats now have only a Majority of ONE in the Senate. The Judicial Committee is holding the line for us against Bush's church approved judges.
Just check your newspapers and TV for the latest story of violence against women. It is endemic from the recent horror in Texas to the murder of women in your own state to the murder of three military wives at Fort Bragg and beyond.
It's open season on women because the Bush administration has broadcasted its church based attitude against women worldwide. Women can no longer rest on their so-called hard won reproductive rights or their right not to be abused and battered or their right to their own bodies.
