TRAP laws

By enacting TRAP laws you will push women's health care and reproductive rights back into the middle ages. These laws won't stop abortions, only ensure that abortions occur in back alleys with rusty coat hangers. Women should be able to control the size of their families in order to protect the general health, economics and welfare of their children. Men do not normally take responsibility for these issues, women do. Women are large contributors to the economy and they are needed to make appropriate reproductive decisions in order to make our economy thrive. Otherwise you have larger numbers of poor on the welfare roles who are unable to make more positive contributions. How would you like to see your daughters health dragged down by too many babies and unable to feed and clothe them properly. Please THINK. Women are not chattel and any man who wants to put them back into that position is not a true man. Men need to be able to share the responsibility of raising our families, not dominate it.
