Women Should Write the Laws About Women

Let’s see… my great-grandmother died of complications from an illegal abortion around the year 1900. It even said this was the cause of death, on her death certificate. She was married but her husband was a drunk and had stopped providing for the family, and she didn’t see how she could possibly manage another child. She was so poor she had to borrow a neighbor’s shoes to go to the abortionist. So glad we’re finally returning to the ways of those good old days….

After her death her children, including my grandmother, were brought up by relatives of her husband, some nice elderly aunts or something. My mom found out all this when my grandmother was very old, and finally talked about it; previously no one seemed to know how her mother had died.

I almost bled to death from my second pregnancy. I was lucky because my doctor scared up two others to sign the papers that saved me. At that time one could have an abortion to save the mother's life if three doctors signed off on it. Your poor great grandmother was brave in the face of a dilemma she could not solve. I do not want to return to those days and have petitioned my senators and Representative.

I made a donation also. I am just horrified by the teen age girls who will be forced to be mothers while just barely out of diapers themselves!!!

Requiring 3 doctors is insane, what terrible treatment. I keep wondering if any Indian reservations will decide to open new clinics and defy the ban. I don't know if it's even a possibility for OK, but perhaps some other state.

I agree 100% that no man should have a vote regarding abortion!!

All these 50 or so years 'men' - the men in charge of our country and the women who enable them - appear to have been smoldering under the oppression of women's liberation and they are now empowered to put us in our place.

The timing with Mother's Day is so, yuck. Now I'm wondering if someone timed this leak to steer midterms voting -- or at least primary voting. I can't really tell how or if it would help the right.
