If you're a women
and you want to keep your rights,
Until recently I only took a moderate interest in the American presidential elections. This year that’s different, not only do I take an interest, I fear the elections. In a few days, everything could change (and not for the better).
After hearing and reading the beliefs of the republican politicians, I can only shake my head and wonder … how can anyone even consider voting for this party?
Let’s look at some of their beliefs …
“A Republican congressional candidate says abortion should not be legal, even when it involves "the rape thing," according to audio provided Wednesday to The Associated Press.”
The rape thing?
A Missouri Republican who came to the defense of Representative Todd Akin told the The New York Times last week “ If God has chosen to bless this person [the rape victim] with a life, you don’t kill it."
Rape is a blessing?
I struggled with myself for a long time but I came to realize life is that gift from God, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape. It is something that God intended to happen.”
So, according to these clowns, rape and a subsequent pregnancy is are gifts from God? Isn’t it a shame that men can’t get pregnant?
That some men might welcome republics, I can understand. Slowly but steadily men have been losing ground and this might be their chance to get the upper hand again. Put women in their place, so to speak.
Until not so long ago, women couldn’t have their own money, couldn’t have property and were not allowed to vote. Their lot was to marry and have babies. When in doubt, look at a
Mormon family and count the kids (if you can). Will this be the lot of women again should republicans win?
Maybe not at first, but if rape is seen as a blessing, and abortion is against the law, what will be next? Keep in mind that the presidential candidate is a Mormon and it might be a good idea for any woman to familiarize herself with Mormon beliefs.
Other than women, African Americans and the gay community might also want to take a look at the Mormon beliefs. They think gay relations is a sign of mental illness.
I can only hope that there are enough Americans who will see through the lies and the deceit and do the right thing when casting their vote.
Ladies, do you really want to lose your rights? Do you really want to be seen only as a baby making machine? Do you want to stand the change of being raped, end up pregnant and having to raise the kid?
Women everywhere have fought for your rights, make sure you keep them!
