Right to choose

Remember back in the 2000 presidential campaign, before people knew Bush’s true colors, he used the slogan “W is for Women”? Jump ahead four years and re-elected President George W. Bush is praising anti-abortion demonstrators as they rally against Roe vs Wade. George W. is walking tall, hand in hand, with forces who want to criminalize women for having abortions.

Women, who does your body belong to? A bunch of anti-abortion zealots, or you? Are you going to let a fringe group of religious extremists take away your God-given right to freedom of choice? The religious right wingers in the White House, Congress and Supreme Court will criminalize the abortion procedure if given a chance. Do you think these iron maidens care if your daughter uses a coat hanger to abort herself?

The anti-abortion movement has become a cancer in society and only a united womanhood and sincere supporters can expunge it. Think these people don’t deserve the extremist label any longer? Since when do compassionate souls fire bomb abortion clinics as anti-abortionists just did in Olympia, Wash.?
