    I'm interested in all answers. I love knowing what and how people think.

    Well, when I hear that rights are "under attack" I assume it's referring to the right to engage in the action itself, not an "attack" in the form of not being willing to publicly fund said action. My apologies if I misunderstood..

    I would absolutely agree with you on that point, that's a complete overreach of authority.

    Horse ****. How can it be patricarchal if around half the people who want to restrict abortion are FEMALE?

    Where did I say she wasn't allowed to have an opinion? I think I commented on the fact that she is only interested in one answer to the question.

    Side note: You know, Wake does the same thing Josie is doing in this thread and he gets a lot of crap for it. If I had made the same comment in a Wake thread, you probably would have agreed with it. That's unfortunate too.

    There is an assault on women's reproductive rights. This attacks us in more areas then in bed.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    It's patriarchal because of the people leading the attacks.
