Everyone should be concerned about this sneaky back-door attempt to interfere with women’s reproductive rights, whether they are childfree or not. But for the [tag]childfree[/tag] and those who may not want to reproduce it’s even more important.
Though this is about “Plan B” (What’s also called the Morning After Pill) rather than all contraception, the result is the same and it is a slippery slope. Chipping away at women’s rights to determine whether or not they want to have children. Changing the rules by the back door. Removing access to birth control, and at the same time refusing tubal ligations and vasectomies to women and men who want them until they’ve added to the gene pool.
Note the collusion with the Religious Right in this when you read what last-gasp Bush is doing and think of how it’s going to give the “Pro-Lifers” more freedom than ever.
This is scary, crazy stuff, being brought in on the sly while everyone is supposedly distracted by the elections. I’d sign the petition in a flash (I tried) but it’s for US Citizens. So, here’s what you can do.
- Read the article
- Sign the petition
- Share the link on your blog or Facebook or MySpace or other profiles, and make as many people aware as possible so they can sign the petition.
- Comment – here and on the blog
SBK – Thanks for flagging.
I just hope Americans are listening and aware because they need to be vigilant. Anyone who thinks women’s reproduction rights aren’t under systematic and consistent attack is dreaming.
