Women's Abortion Rights - Stop Controlling Women

Whether or not you agree with abortion as a moral issue, a woman's right to have an abortion must be preserved.  This is about keeping the government's laws off of a woman's body.  This issue is just like people differing on gun control because people believe the right to own a gun trumps controlling their use more dramatically to preserve lives.  In a similar way woman can not loose this right and be subject to invasive, demeaning controlling laws. 

The moral issue of abortion should NOT be mixed with the law.  It's ridiculous!  Keep the moral issue debate going in churches and in society - there is a real need for that.  In the mean time stop trying to control women's bodies with these types of laws; we are people - not a comodity.  Its degrading in every sence of the word.  Most women do not wish to have an abortion - it's a complicated situation which needs to be part of our moral discussions.

You can't control women's bodies on such a level and then have a society where so many obsene things are not controlled and viagra is marketed in a perverse way in our society.  The context for this type of legislation is out of perspective with the larger types of things we allow in our society and is literally just being put in place to control women.  Its not OK at all.

I personally support life in all forms from the forming, to the birthing to the living and the transitioning.  Please hear this loud and clear - women are moral people and can make these decisions appropriately - we do not appreciate this type of backward and extremist type of control.
