I respectfully disagree with just about everything you said. Right now, women are having to fight for every issue that we thought had been settled. I'm 68 and I remember vividly the life I was expected to live when I grew up in the 50's. I lived in Roll, Az. for about 4 years and I found that, in addition to moving across the country, I had moved back in time. You are free for now to follow your beliefs and convictions. That will change if the republicans have their way and restrict access to contraceptives and, even in cases of rape or incest, abortion. An Republican Oklahoma representative is fighting for a "personhood" law that will make a fertilized ovum a person. You mention mandate--what if contraceptives were not available? It could happen if the religious right have their way. You have daughters and granddaughters and so do I. But I remember what it was like before women became more than chattel. I guess you don't.Mar 4, 2012
