Overturning Roe v. Wade is wrong on many points

typewriter

Dear Editor:

The recent overturning of the above is a blow to women throughout the country. Not only does it take away their right to make their own medical decisions, it also forces them into possible life altering situations.

It is so wrong on so many points. Firstly, it goes against what the majority of people in this country approve of. This is based on a multitude of polls taken after the initial leak of this decision some months ago. Secondly, it goes against what previous Supreme Court justices had already approved. So basically what the current justices are saying is that the previous Supreme Court justices didn’t know what was right. If we can’t trust the Supreme Court, then who can we trust? These justices are not only going against the will of the people, but also against the law that was approved by their predecessors.

For the majority of women who dis-agree with this decision, remember “who the President was” who recently appointed the three conservative judges who helped to overturn the decision. When it comes to vote in the next election, make your voices heard, and vote out the politicians who are praising this decision. Whether Republican or Democrat, you know who is applauding this decision, and you can make a difference! It’s time for the will of the people to be heard, not those of the politicians, who do little for the people they’ve been elected to serve.

Here’s a novel thought, how about the states that are banning abortion, be forced to pay for every child born from birth until the age of eighteen, if the mother’s decided, for whatever reason, not to have the child? I believe the politicians would then change their tune, when faced with the billions of dollars it would cost.

Also, the people should demand that at the next federal nationwide election a question be put on the ballot for Abortion rights. If approved, it be made a Constitutional Amendment, so that no court can change it. Let it be decided by the people as their choice, not by some judges ignoring the people’s wishes and forcing on us their own ideological beliefs.

Personal choice is the right of every human being, not to be decided by the courts.
