On Feb 2, 2018, David Brooks makes a case for banning late term abortions. This would be the wedge driven towards the complete overturn of Roe v. Wade.
He thinks this should go back to the states for deciding if any woman should be able to terminate a pregnancy.
This is so wrong.
It would negate all the progress that women have made in the last 40 years on a multiple fronts.
We are harassed in the workplace, denigrated in politics, underpaid for the same job as men perform, kept subservient by religions, and in general not given the respect and place in society that we deserve.
Should we stand by while men go about taking more rights away and making it more difficult to be a woman in today’s society?
Denying a right that is already given is the slippery slope to fascism, and our national leaders seem hell bent on making it so.
I am past the age of ever needing an abortion, and having children only to lose two of them gives me the perspective on all of these subjects. If men were forced to bear children the laws would all be in their favor.
