Abortion, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Obama, Rape, Republican, Support for the legalization of abortion, United States
Mitt Romney may be an anti-birth-control extremist and an anti-pro-choice extremist and would force the victim of a rape to carry the child of her rapist and give birth to his child, but US voters have a choice. They need not elect into the office of President of the United States of America a person who would deny an abortion to a woman who got pregnant as a result of rape. Exercise the privilege democracy affords everyone: the right to vote for the candidate who, without advocating abortion, will at least make it available promptly when circumstances call for this kind of intervention.
Get organized, donate if you can, make sure your neighbour gets to the election polls, and re-elect President Obama. If President Obama is not re-elected, the world will stand in complete disbelief as it will no longer be dealing with a person who respects all human beings, whatever their ethnicity, and promotes peace. The world remembers that the former President brought the US and its partners to the brink of bankruptcy. And these same Republicans would now make women carry the child of a rapist.Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) Courtesy Art Resource, NY
Sandra Fluke, I have received your email and fully agree with you that a woman whose pregnancy was caused by rape should not be forced to carry her rapist‘s child and give birth to that child. I therefore oppose the above-mentioned extremist discourse which are:
- anti-birth-control extremism, and
- anti-pro-choice extremism.
And I oppose these extremist positions because what Republicans are proposing violates the dignity of a human being and because raped and pregnant woman are likely to commit suicide. For hundreds of years, women have used clothes hangers and other contraptions to free their body from a cruel form of intrusion and have died. For a very long time, women have also sought the services of backstreet abortionists who have caused their death.
Moreover, as strange as this may seem, the insensitive and intolerant legislation Republicans are contemplating regarding women may reveal a thwarted view of human sexuality. I believe that such individuals as Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan look upon sexual intercourse as dirty. Why else would they be anti-birth-control extremists and anti-pro-choice extremists. The problem is, however, that women pay the price.
Again, as strange as this may seem, morality the Republican way appears to begin and end with denying women access to birth-control or to an abortion, if an abortion is necessary. We cannot limit morality to this one criterion.
But the citizens of the United States have a choice. They can choose to defeat the Republicans come 6 November 2012. They can say “no.”Related blogs: A Response to Mr Limbaugh: Abstinence for all Musing on the State of Women ABC.News The Wahington Post (on Mitt Romney) © Micheline Walker 25 August 2012 WordPress

Thank you and couldn’t agree more!!!!
We have to put an end to disrecpect towards women. We are human beings and we play a central role in society. We give birth to the citizens of tomorrow and often we also raise them on our own.
Thank you for writing,

its quite interesting the way womb of women are controlled by society. as if its they who will give birth and bring up the child.
i am not much in support of abortion but there are cases when it doesnot looks like a cruel act.
I’m the same, I am not much in favour of abortions. At times, however, they are a necessity. If a woman has been raped, she should not be expected to carry the child of the man who raped her and give birth to that child. That’s cruel. Moreover, there are times when medical doctors need to perform an abortion. If it is not legal, they too can feel desperate. For instance, doctors can now tell whether or not the foetus is normal. That are good reasons to decriminalize abortions. However, I would hate to see a woman use abortions as a form of birth-control. As well, decrimilazing abortions does not force anyone to have an abortion. Moreover, doctors should not be compelled to perform an abortion. They can refer their patient to a clinic or to a doctor for whom it will not create an ethical dilemma. I believe moreover that it should be done very early in a pregnancy to prevent guilt feelings. It’s not an easy question. Thank you for writing and best regards. Micheline
