This Election is About Women and Self Determination

This is fundamentally true. I have a teen daughter and she and her friend  were talking about tomorrow’s election. They can’t vote for 2 more years, but both Jessica and her friend are well aware that this election will partly determine whether women keep (or lose) their rights to control their own bodies. I wish they could vote.

Jessica’s friend says her mom is voting Obama but Dad likes Romney and there’s lots of fighting over this. I bet! My question for this man (who I don’t know) would be why he’s willing to sell off his wife’s and daughter’s fundamental rights of self-determination. The fact that the GOP is a mass of lies, greed, and hypocrisy is secondary to the fact that this election is about basic human rights.
