Transcript Bay Area NCW salutes Doug Dodson for the following article that appeared in The Citizen. SUPREME COURT PASES THE BUCK To get to the heart of the matter, the Supreme Court has in essence made it more difficult for abortions to be obtained. In simpler terms, they have been cotpletely irresponsible. Period. Right-to-lifers are not unhappy with the non-ruling. Pro-choice advocates are devasted. What is so ironic about this decision is the fact that these cmniscient right-to- life supporters have probably taken a step closer to achieving their goal of no abortions. This, in their opinion, will save the life of all those defenseless unborn babies. In reality, however, outlawing abortions will not only result in just as many abortions, but probably cost many would-be mothers their lives due to inadequate medical facilities. In an ideal society everyone follows the law. But this is not Utopia. When we decide to do something about making laws and rules, we need to keep in mind that they mist address a problem, not ignore it. What is even more absurd is the fact that in almost every news interview shown or printed, it is always a man who is speaking out on behalf of the anti-abortion coalition. Give me a break. What does a man know-he will never be faced with the trauma of carrying his father's child or the fetus of a rapist. IL will never be his life that is in danger. But I can see these fellcws getting their just dues. You see, and this is the truth, doctors in Los Angeles have been successfully developing a method of allowing men to have babies. These doctors sinply attach the fertilized egg to his intestines. The mode of birth is proven-it has been done on wcmen already. My point? Considering the current trend of government rules, I think it would be ccmical if it were decided that if a pregnant wcman were to die, and if the fetus survives, that the father would have to carry the egg. I can just see those pro-life guys having to preserve life-even if it is the child of the rapist who killed his wife. It may seem ridiculous, but think about it. Men, if they had to be in that situation, probably wouldn't yell so loud. Men have no right to speak on the issue if they don't have to suffer the same consequences. Wcmen have been abused, ridiculed, discriminated against and victimized countless times throughout history. I'm no woman's libber, but I do believe all msn and wcmsn are created equal. I^t's stop dumping all this hypocritical garbage on their shoulders. As for all those who believe it was the wcman's fault that she got pregnant in the first place, the last time I checked it took two to achieve this feat. And, woren aren't always the willing partners that pro-life men think. I truly believe that the pro-lifers have the most honorable intentions. Un fortunately, not one has given any thought to the mother. Perhaps seme day they will join the rest of us in the real world and start making a stand for constructive solutions. Question: What is the biggest joke in the United States today? Answer: The Supreme Cburt, which protects the life of a fetus, yet supports the death sentence for 16 year-olds and retarded inmates. I rest my case. We are in for a very, very long a wcman, and all your Dreams you've ever haul... I am asking for Everything had for your daughters, and nieces, and you have to give.
