Losing Options / Losing Freedoms

As I look at modern day government, I see that women are not a part of the process. Recently a movement has been on the rise, the movement to do away with women’s healthcare options. This is all being done by a male majority, Republican-controlled legislature. Women’s rights and options are being eliminated under the guise of programs that provide “government funded” abortions. Wayne Christian, a Republican state representative said, “I don’t think anybody is against providing healthcare for women. What we’re opposed to are abortions.”
But along with eliminating programs that offer abortions you are also eliminating programs which provide birth control, mammograms and gynecological examinations for women who cannot otherwise afford these services. We cannot let the over one hundred and fifty years of accomplishments of the Women’s Rights Movement be in vain. First it will be options, next freedoms. Ladies, don’t you think it is time we embrace the same independence men have had for years?
