    I sat on a Belle Telephone switchboard for years and I watched young girls arrive their head and heart full of hope and dreams. Then on one night a date rape or a date rape drug would wipe out all those hopes and dreams. He would go right on with his life as though nothing had happened. Her life was forever altered.
    We musn’t allow a bunch of crazies just in search of another vote with no care of the damage they are doing to young girls,change the outcome of battles already fought and won.
    Please I beg you fight this fight it is one worth fighting.

    I totally agree with you. when i was young and needed an abortion the fact that it was legal and safe for me saved my life ,literally. This small fringe of people that want to make me feel like a failure are destroying my soul. i won’t let them. They will not hurt my daughters.

    Women have the right to refrain from having their own abortions, but for them to have to carry a rapist’s child to term is contrary to American law. The nation has decided that and we the people still stand behind it.

    With no access to legal abortion women living in poverty would remain an underclass and their children would have less chance to get a better life. Legal abortion is morally the right law as it gives all women no matter of income level or social status the same chance to have children when they want to be pregnant and can better afford to give their child a better life.

    I’m catholic and don’t understand why this is even an issue. My religion doesn’t allow contraception so don’t use it. It should be part of the health care plan because everyone has the right to have different opinions about what God wants. I do however question why careless sex that results in a pregnancy should be paid for by anyone but the one who had the careless and unprotected sex. Just sayin.

    • Claire January 28, 2013 at 10:30 pm

      Someone getting pregnant from rape is not the result of “careless sex.” It is a deliberate attack and strips away that woman or girl’s choice. If that woman or girl chooses to keep a baby from those circumstances, that is HER choice. Just as it is HER choice to terminate it. No matter what, it is not YOUR choice to make for her.

      If your religion doesn’t allow contraception and you choose to not use it, that is YOUR choice. I respect that. But your religion does not get to make that decision for someone else. I thank God for that.

        Very well said… Though I will NEVER understand banning birth control…they are opening the door for more abortions this way.

  17. Lauren January 28, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    Well pregnancies don’t always happen from unprotected or careless sex. It’s not about what God wants it’s all about the womans’ situation and what she decides. I WAS on birth control when I got pregnant, so that’s why because it clearly wasn’t my fault! An abortion is a lot cheaper then having to pay for others welfare or the cost of raising a kid when you’re broke like me. Just sayin.

    • Mick January 29, 2013 at 8:34 pm

      I agree with your thoughts very much so.

  18. Mick January 29, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    As a 17 yr old I depended on planned parenthood for birth control. I was under my mother’s insurance and for a few years THEY paid for my pills. All of a sudden they stopped and before I got to planned parenthood, I ended up pregnant, 3 yrs into my bachelors degree.
    THEN my mother’s health insurance paid for me to go to a HOSPITAL and have an abortion under anesthesia!! I just kept thinking paying for my pills monthly would have been a lot cheaper and saved me from going thru that procedure! This was 26 yrs ago. Then I worked for a Catholic hospital for 15 years…in the beginning they would not pay for birth control and docs had to fudge things to sterilize woman who wanted it done. I required a hysterectomy due to back pain and not sure how the doc got that covered…BTW all these events happened in CA and NY… image the red states…I feel lucky I got what I did!

    Hillary, you are so awesome!!!! I totally agree with what Claire had to say. It it not ANYONE’S right to tell women what they can and can’t do with their bodies!!!!! Why do you evangelical extremists insist on trying to turn back time 50 years or more? Get over it and move on!!!! The people spoke 40 years ago, and I am almost willing to bet that the results would turn out about the same if it was put to a vote today. We have way bigger fish to fry then to rehash this over and over again!! How about avoiding sequestration and providing jobs and education and health care for all? What ever happened to taking care of the people in this country? Fund education, health care and Planned Parenthood!!! I am going to Olympia, Washington, on February 18th to lobby for women’s reproductive health care rights. I can’t wait!! Thank God for people like Hillary Clinton. Rock on Planned Parenthood.
