Abortion, Not On Demand

Future historians will shake their heads in wonder at the tenacious fight by Republicans over the issue of abortion. The act of  aborting a child is among the oldest in human history. In the Supreme Court decision of Roe vs Wade, women were allowed to gain control over their own bodies. Obviously, deciding when a pregnant woman is carrying a human being is controversial, but the Supreme C0urt did empower females to make the decision to abort. For nearly half a century women have possessed that right, but that right was never right with conservatives.

The Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo, North Dakota is the last remaining facility that offers women access to abortion services. North Dakota politicians have passed one law after another to force closure of the clinic and they soon will succeed. The goal is clear- deprive women have abortion facilities and end abortions. Actually, this will not occur because women with money can always gain an abortion. Just another example of how Republicans screw the poor.
