Women’s rights, women’s choice!

I don’t care what you call it. We are responsible for our choices, and must live with the accompanying results of those choices. Women have the right to choose whether or not to have sex. If that right is taken away, it is defined as rape.

Living human beings have the right to life. If two living cells unite and continue developing a new individual life, it is living and has the right to continue living. If the woman’s choice is to kill the living, it is defined as murder.

Both rape and murder carry consequences and should be applied to the offender. The person in the womb has the right to life as well as all human beings, regardless of age!

Parents need to educate their children concerning the choices they make and the consequences of those choices.

Although I am in my 70s, I can still hear my Mother’s response to my phrase “but everybody is doing it.” Her response was simple, but effective. “But you are not everybody, you are Charlotte, and you make your own decisions.

I made a mistake about where to find in the constitution the clause that gives a woman the right to an abortion. The due process clause of the `14th amendment provides a fundamental right to privacy that protects a pregnant woman's liberty to choose whether or not to have an abortion. Sincerely David Rau

The right to life is an unalienable right given by God as in the Declaration of Independence which is the foundation of our Constitution.

The Supreme Court in 1973 declared abortion constitutional under Amendment 1 under the right of privacy but I'm sure People like Mr. Swindle wants to deny Women that right. These kind of people also wants to do away with all forms of birth control like plan B...Sincerely David Rau

A unconstitutional law Mr. Swindle? The supreme court declared abortion legal under the constitution in 1973 with the roe v. wade decision unless you don't believe in the constitution like your buddy Trump? Sincerely David Rau

Can you show me in the Constitution where the right to take another life is?

Darryl Swindle

Every human being has the right to life. The womb is just a location. Every pregnant woman has a moral obligation to protect that life regardless of what a unconstitutional law says.

Ms. Manis needs to understand that she lives in the USA and in American a Woman has the right to make her own choices. Ms Manis said that Women have the choice of having sex or not having sex but that is also true for a man. Ms Manis also defines abortion as murder and she has a right to her opinion but every Woman here in America has the right to make that choice. Abortion has been legal in the USA since 73 and it will stay legal. Even bozo Trump supported a Womans right to an abortion before he ran for President and saw he needed the votes of the bible thumpers to become this countries first illegal President. Ms. Manis says rape is wrong and it is but she said nothing about the law in Alabama that makes it a crime to have an abortion even in the case of rape or incest or if the life of the mother is at stake. Ms Manis needs to learn that we live in a free country. In this country we don't get our rights from God but from the US Constitution like it or not. Sincerely David Rau

Just because it is legal does not mean it is right. What kind of life would you have had if your mother had exorcised that right.

A flaming liberal: we are nothing but a bag of cells, without purpose, destiny, or meaning. My gods are climate change and 'social justice.' There is no objective morality except for 'orange man bad.' You should be woke like me, because Russia.

LOL, well put! May I add "free stuff" to your list of gods?
