This Antiabortion Congressman Doesn't Seem to Understand How Sex Works

It's a rough time for women's rights in America, and it's only getting more outrageous: a Republican state lawmaker in Texas introduced a bill in January that would make it legal to charge a woman with murder if she has an abortion.

I, too, wish abortion wasn't used by irresponsible women AND men. But it is difficult to legislate morality, as the US found out with Prohibition. In an ideal world abortion wouldn't be necessary, but we live in a world where it is needed sometimes, unfortunately. You can't logically be against birth control and helping single mothers with social programs and at the same time be against abortion. It just doesn't make sense.

Ton'y has this obsession with a females reproductive system like so many of his male colleagues. There has to be a reason for it ,probably something going back to preschool or their early toilet training Whatever the reason they have no right to deny women the right to make choices about their body functions If a woman wants to remove an unwanted fetus it is her right and no politician or church authority should deny her that right.

If men impregnating women were held accountable they'd have a different view all together.

His views on women who have abortions is complete nonsense. I have known women who had abortions, and none of them took the decision lightly. They also weren't 'easy to get'.

Just another wacko republican. Vote them all out of office at the next opportunity in ALL levels of government.
