Today’s MOZEN: Fight for Your Rights!
With great sadness I can claim that I am not surprised by the leaked draft from the Supreme Court. Written by associate justice Samuel Alito, if actually ruled on, the Court will remove the Constitutional protection of a woman’s reproductive rights, i.e. the right to choose to abort a pregnancy.
This is the moment that the Conservative Religious movement has been striving to achieve for years! It has been a relentless, well coordinated attack to impose their MINORITY views on the REST of us!
A full 70% of Americans polled have consistently supported a woman’s right to choose. And the language is key here — no one makes a woman have an abortion so it’s not about that. It’s about a woman’s RIGHT to control her own body. It MUST be HER choice.
Yet, here we are.
The ultra-religious, regardless of sect, have been effectively imposing their will, particularly on Republican law makers, for years. And, what is most galling is that THEY are in the minority — both the ultra-religious AND the GOP. Democrats and moderately religious folk far outnumber them.
This fact is particularly glaring within the Supreme Court itself. The so-called Conservative justices that have swung the vote were ALL appointed by Republican Presidents who LOST THE POPULAR VOTE.
So much for the will of the people as well as DEMOCRACY and MAJORITY RULE. We can thank the Electoral College for this wonderful legacy.
So, what do we do?
We fight back and overwhelm this flawed system with our voices and our VOTES. We vote for candidates in such numbers that we are heard loud and clear — we will not stand for our rights to be taken by ANYONE! And this goes for women AND men. This is not just an issue of women’s rights — it’s one of HUMAN RIGHTS! Women must take the lead and we men must support them in every way that we can.
We HAVE to get what we pay for — with our voices and our votes!
Be active. Be relentless. Never compromise your rights. It’s what THEY do — and why they win. We can do it better!
Send the Donald Trumps, the Ted Cruzs, the Marco Rubios, and their entire ilk where they belong — to the Junk Heap of History.
And take the Electoral College with ya’!!
