Letter: Politics Has No Place in a Woman’s Womb


I’m glad the Indy reached out to Laguna’s electeds for their reaction to the Supreme Court’s expected decision on abortion. For what it’s worth, here is my take on the matter:
For a political party that prides itself on limited government, how do Republicans reconcile the competing principles of (a) staying out of people’s bedrooms and (b) climbing into a woman’s uterus?

I never went to law school, but I know separate, unequal treatment when I see it. If Roe v. Wade is overturned and abortions basically are outlawed, then shouldn’t there be equally draconian measures for men?

Besides going to jail, should a rapist or family member who impregnates a woman be forced to pay her $1 million for carrying a baby she does not want? Should these same men be castrated? Or, should all prostate cancer surgeries be outlawed?

As the old saying goes, “Politics makes for strange bedfellows.” Given today’s fight for or against abortion rights, here’s a way to level the field for both women and men. “Politics has no place in a woman’s womb or a man’s penis.”

  1. Another disgusting holier than thou tirade (that’s why he has to write a LETTER to get on the Internet) by a immorally mis-educated wind bag. If politics don’t have anything to do with a mans pecker why did the California Gay Marriage vote get over run by the Feds Civil Rights Court? Damn fools. Really. I guess it’s about two penises.

  2. I think it is pretty comical that the liberals are screaming about a woman’s body, yet want every person kicked out of everywhere and blamed and ostracized by society if you don’t wear a mask and you do not bow to an injection that by the way has proven itself not to work and make people very ill if not death…Hypocrites! can’t have it both ways.
    ***Denny, this has not even been passed yet and going to the states to handle, people that want the abortion will still have access.

  3. ^ Perhaps the two dumbest comments I’ve ever had the pleasure to read in this newspaper. We’re breaking new ground here. Well done!
