I support a policy that allows any adult female to make her own decision regarding a pregnancy. I do not favor public funding of said services unless she is a minor (parental consent) or a victim of crime.

As a mother and great grandmother of girls, for me it is essential that my family be protected from this heinous act stripping women of affordable reproductive health care. These measures are being instigated by men and signed on to by women who have been brain washed to not think for themselves and to not believe themselves worthy of their own voice.

Please read these petitions advocating municipal environmental
contraception funding, which is increasingly politically realistic due
to The Big Sort in more and more towns, and helps women's rights, quality of life, and school taxes as well as being at
least 5 times more cost-effective than any other environmental effort.

The prochoice and contraception movements are placing too high a priority on defensive actions in the red states when we should be going on the offensive, the side of "change", in the blue states, and cities. The worst places
will get even worse no matter what we do, but the unrealized political potential, the low hanging fruit, is in making the best places even better. This opportunity is being caused by The Big Sort. Mayors are not answerable to rural voters, unlike governors and presidents.

women's rights are key for all persons to have access to the American Dream- they are not baby making machines-they are humans with a right to choose when they want to procreate!

Because eliminating the program would set back basic women's rights to the 50s...I know, I was there.
