To The Republican Women of the US

Did you know that the party you support activity hates you? Did you know that they want complete and total control of your body? Are you okay with the thought that some well to do white male is going to make you a second class citizen? You don't think so?  

According to CNN, "Republicans drafting their party's official policy platform on Tuesday ratified a call for a Constitutional ban on abortion that makes no exceptions for rape or incest.  The party's official stance on abortion was approved after just a few minutes of discussion. The language in the platform must be voted on before the full Republican Convention next week, though Republicans say it is all but certain to pass."

No exception for rape or incest and it took these white males just a few minutes to stuff you to the back of the bus where you belong. 

How is it possible that any woman out there can vote Republican? How can you look at yourselves in the mirror and believe you are a citizen of the US, with all the rights and privileges that entails, when  you are letting these rich white men decide what is the right thing for you, or your 13 year old daughter who has been raped by her father for the past 3 years - and no, don't come back with incest isn't rape. 

Being pregnant is a huge thing to happen to anyone. The woman's body is changed in so many ways science hasn't classified them all yet. Not every woman is ready or able to go through childbirth. That is a fact of life, not everyone can do this. For some women, childbirth presents a very real danger of physical harm to the point of death - the Republican Party will to condemn those women to whatever fate awaits them. 

There are people out there who feel abortions for any reason are wrong; fine, it is your right to make that decision for yourself. You do not have the right to make that choice for his wife, her daughter, the kid down the street, or anyone.

Ladies of the US, are you going to let this happen to you and your daughters and sisters and mothers?
