At a time when even 'Serious' news sites give all the front page to Charlie Sheen, the reproductive rights of Americans at large are clearly under attack.
Is feminism so passe? Why is this seen as a purely women's or Feminist issue, when it impacts everyone in the U.S.?
Guilty until proven innocent? A bill written by a man with a long track record of anti- women, & anti- freedom legislation.
Where is this all going to end? I think women have to demand front page coverage of this & other anti-women, anti- fredom, anti-family legislation currently on the U.S.'s Right Wing's front burners.
We had better get our act together sooner, rather than later!
In Canada, our P.M. has threatened to throw every book in the library at Human Traffickers. (perhaps he just means brown people, bringing in other brown people, in boats?)
But after over 2 years, we are still mulling this one over. 2 fathers transported their 2 twelve year old daughters across the Cdn./U.S. border to 'marry' Warren Jeffs, an accused pedophile.
Is that just another form of 'Religious Expression"?
We have been pussyfooting with these groups for decades. They have been proven to have broken both U.S. & Canadian laws, & yet we are afraid to stop this exploitation of Canadian children.
It's time we stopped being complacent, & reflecting on past glories. (They were not That glorious. We still work harder for less $$, & we still do the bulk of Everything else.)
I'm still trying to understand how these issues are seem as 'Just for Women. I don't know of many men who want 7 children. Hitler also decided to make 'Baby Machines' out of women, but nobody seems to draw that analogy. They are too busy calling each other, & the President of the U.S., "Hitler".
It's time to get loud again, sisters, & brothers! They can't hear us over Charlie Sheen.
