Rehash of Prop. 73

Don’t be Fooled. Prop. 85 is a rehash of last years Proposition 73, the Parental-Notification act that was rejected. Proposition 85 is another attempt by the fundamentalist right to legislate a woman’s freedom of choice.

Are women willing to let a bunch of religious extremists take control of their reproductive rights? The ongoing abortion debate is and has always been a wedge issue used by Republicans and anti-abortion foes to disempower and confuse women about their bodies and sexuality. The preservation of life seems to be a slogan rather than a genuine goal of anti-abortion forces.

On Nov. 7 vote No on Proposition 85 and preserve a female’s right to choose.
