Anyone who reads material from the Republican party or who watches Fox News quickly understands that the party of Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt believes strongly in the right of an individual to control her destiny–and certainly her body. Florida Governor Rick Scott just signed into law HB1047 which now makes it a crime for women to abort a fetus is a doctor believes the fetus can survive. The new bill replaces the existing law which prevents an abortion if the woman is 24 weeks into her pregnancy. I assume the new law places the decision as to whether or not an abortion occurs in the hands of your friendly doctor. Oh, the new law makes clear if the doctor provides the wrong answer to a pregnant woman and says the fetus can not survive, that doctor can wind up in jail!!
Republicans believe each person has a right to carry a weapon.
Republicans believe each businessman has the right to determine if a worker has health insurance.
Republicans believe each wealthy person has the right to spend and spend in order to get his candidate elected.
BUT Republicans do NOT believe each woman has a right to decide what is done to HER body!!
