Women's rights

I cannot believe we are fighting this battle again in my lifetime.  What will you do next, reinstate slavery?  I have the right to choose what happens with my body and you simply do not.  Medical decisions belong to me and my physician, not to right winged politicians who are serving a small minority of the VA voters. Personally I would never have had an abortion but I do insist on the rights of a woman to have a safe abortion if she deems it necessary in her life.  Your changing the rules regarding our rights will send women back into coat hanger abortions and endanger women's lives again.  Keep your religeous small minds and Bible thumping hands off the laws that enable this vital medical issue.  If you feel so strongly about every child being wanted then go adopt one of the thousands of children in this country who are awaiting a permanent home.
