She Said it For Me

This morning, Breezes at Dawn wrote “A Story” – a story about the government’s interference in our personal lives, a story about laws passed by people who are so far out of the loop of real life that there can be no understanding of what the life of “common folk” is actually like. The story about those with power using that power to dictate to some of us, filling the wishes of those who speak more loudly, who wish to force their beliefs on all of us – beliefs, words, but no real support.

The story is about the current Supreme Court decision to come – the one that was leaked, that apparently will strike down the ruling that gave women control over their body and reinstitute laws that take away the freedoms of us to control what happens to our bodies.

I am so very weary of being told that, as a woman, I don’t count – unless, of course, I happen to agree with a specific choice. I am not, as Dawn said, pro-abortion, but I am pro-choice, and, also as Dawn said, I believe this opens too many doors to too many other restrictions.

It feels like we are moving into dictatorship, autocracy.

    Nice post.
    Our government are completely irrational in some of their decisions.
    And we are supposed to toe the line.
    Scary times.

  5. I heard of this and my heart sank. What’s wrong with the world?
    I have had an abortion myself, simply because I did not want that accidental pregnancy. I don’t feel guilty about it because it is my body and my life -I’d rather do this than resent a baby that was born by chance. I think every woman must be given that choice.
    I know I am being unfair, but sometimes in my frustration I say “if all the men in the world were to disappear, human kind will die out within a generation but that last generation of women would be the happiest, most liberated ones”.

    Yes, I agree. I am so very weary of all of this nonsense – the intolerance for beliefs other than one’s own. I think we are going to hell in a handbasket, as my mother used to say.

    It is very frustrating, Carol. Hard to imagine that this could happen in these times–but given our recent history of the last several years–maybe not so hard. I will go over and read Robin’s post, too.

  8. Oh Carol, Robin’s post spoke to me too. I get so discouraged and frustrated, because I feel I can’t do anything about what is happening. When I think that people are irate when asked to wear a mask to save lives, then want to tell me to give up my rights to my body…I shake my head and want to scream. So, I do. mj
