Women constitute more than half of the population. In 2008, 60% of voters were women. It is estimated that 10 million more women than men will vote in this election. Despite this, women make up only 16% of Congress. Women earn only 70 cents to each dollar men make. Women of color and undocumented women make less than white citizens. Mitt Romney and the Republican Party are determined to overturn Roe V. Wade. Romney has not supported equal pay for women (The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act). Romney has vowed to defund Planned Parenthood. Romney has vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Romney doesn't want health care to cover birth control. Romney says same sex marriage should be banned with a Constitutional Amendment.

Wasn't that a Supreme Court thang?

It's not like Republicans will snap their fingers and *poof* it's gone.

Relax.

Even if they do over turn Roe V wade, It simply sends the issue back to the states.

Yep, the SCOTUS created the RvW law. Mere legislators have no power to revoke laws that the dictatorship of the judiciary dictate.

Calm down. Take some Midol. Spark up a Virginia Slim!

Women should vote for women politicians. Problem solved.

Don't worry, you'll be able to get "abortion on demand", since it was the U.S. Supreme Court who gave you that "right".

Don't worry, there are plenty of federal and state laws in place that protect women from receiving less pay for the same work that men do.

Don't worry, you already have permanent birth control available to you. It's called Roe v. Wade.

Maobama will be disappointed to hear that, he thinks he owns you quite nicely. I think he's right.

which, given that federal constitutional rights are SUPPOSED to belong to everyone, regardless of state (think desegregation), means you're overturning roe.

what i find most interesting is how vested rightwing men are in depriving women of control over their own bodies.

You might ask yourself why leftwing men want you to kill your babies, if you're into questioning motives.

thanks

Well thank God we are doing something right! I can't believe someone is actually bitching that illegal aliens don't make as much as US citizens! Holy shit!

I think Roe should be overturned and I'm pro-choice. Chew on that one for a bit.

Roe was a very poorly decided case (Justice Ginsberg agrees). It is probably the most notorious case of pure judicial activism where the court took it upon themselves to invent a right that does not exist in the Constitution. Overturning Roe would not outlaw abortion. It would simply kick the decision back to the states where it always was and should be today. The vast majority of states are going to keep abortion legal regardless of the status of Roe.

And yet it doesn't bother you in the least that the left has been using our courts to push a socialist, progressive agenda for far longer.

the chance to appoint right wing supreme court justices is a main reason many are voting for Romney.
Preachers are preaching it.

btw at one time not so many years ago it was determined that women in the USA controlled more money than men did.
