Texas is just one of many states trying to bury abortion rights in red tape and petty bureaucracy

These might be the top ten but any state that is a 'Red' State is dangerous for women and minorities in general, in my opinion. What the Reichwing are doing in 'these' ten will carry over to the other Red States eventually so this fight has only begun...again.......................................sigh.

True enough, Jae. Every red state is a danger to women and anyone not a part of the select group of WASPs that see themselves as immune and for good reason. They win because of gerrymandering. It really is a lousy way to win an election but both sides do it, and one side is willing to stop anyone that might disagree from voting at all.

Since this article specifically addresses states that are restricting women's access to health care, specifically regarding reproductive health care, then the point of the article is well-taken. However, if we consider the concept of places dangerous to women in terms of all forms of danger, then there are actually very few places on this planet and none in this nation that are truly safe for women. The violence inherent in the American system specifically targets women for additional victimization both culturally and institutionally. Women make up just over half of the American population, but make up perhaps only 15% of the Congress. The corporate sponsored two party system, specifically the moderate wing i.e. the Democrats needs to adopt the value of gender equity that is a key value of the Green Party of the United States. Specifically, this value is stated as,
"FEMINISM AND GENDER EQUITY
We have inherited a social system based on male domination of politics and economics. We call for the replacement of the cultural ethics of domination and control with more cooperative ways of interacting that respect differences of opinion and gender. Human values such as equity between the sexes, interpersonal responsibility, and honesty must be developed with moral conscience. We should remember that the process that determines our decisions and actions is just as important as achieving the outcome we want." For additional information, see: http://www.gp.org/tenkey.php

We can create a more just, equitable society, but not by playing the same old corporate politics.

Stands to reason then that these states must be the safest for children.

Well said Brian. This is a cancer eating at our Nation like no other.

Most of the American Indian Nations thought otherwise concerning women than this Eurocentric thought now pre-dominant.

"The woman is the foundation on which nations are built. She is the heart of her nation. If that heart is weak, the people are weak. If her heart is strong and her mind is clear, then the nation is strong and knows its purpose. The woman is the center of everything." Ojibwe

"A nation is not conquered until the hearts of its women are on the ground. Then it is finished no matter how brave its warriors or how strong their weapons."
Tsistsistas, Cheyenne

We have a bunch of Foolish Men in Authority that is under the Heading of United States of America.

We who are female; are Mother Earth's heartbeat, the life-givers, it is our responsibility to bring peace, harmony and balance back to the world.

This will not happen if we continue to find fault with ourselves and perpetuate it on our sisters. We must stand in Solidarity with all women, no matter what State they live in or what Country they reside in.
