  • Freedom of choice is one of the most fundamental rights of our country. Denying a woman the right to govern her own body does not fit into the concept of American freedoms. Already many of our insurance carriers do not cover birth-control, & affordable daycare does not exist . Why is the focus being directed solely on reproductive freedoms, when the abortion data demonstrates an overall decrease. I would encourage those in the government to focus programs that support reproductive education, family health, & affordable daycare.

  • When will this stop, a decision made mostly by Men, on what is good for them and not good for them. And to say that women are lying about what has been done to them.
