How refreshing is it to read an article like this? I am a 44 year old female who moved out of my home at 16 and have supported myself since in a male dominated occupation. I am sickened by my sisters who find it ok to abort and position it under the tagline "choice." It doesn't frankly doesn't matter if you are christian, muslim or aethiest ( which I am) we are stronger as a population when we protect those that are the most vulnerable.

You blazed a trail for other true feminists like yourself. True feminists don't try to achieve "equality" by joining NOW or protesting against male domination of society.

True feminists walk the walk. They take the assertion that "A woman can do anything a man can do" literally and then proceed to demonstrate it in their own lives.

This means conducting ourselves with dignity and making our choice well before the bedroom.
Todd Akin’s grossly irresponsible remarks about “legitimate rape” and conception have received much media attention. As well they should. The sheer weirdness of the remarks calls into question both his intelligence and his personal integrity. How could someone conclude logically that a rape victim’s body has the capacity to prevent conception in the wake of sexual assault? And why would someone assert that the conclusion had been supported by doctors with whom he had spoken? Clearly, Akin contrived the idea on the spot and then contrived the claim that there were doctors who had informed and/or supported his assertion. All of...
