Mexico legalizes abortion – and the fun begins
It is a huge step for a predominantly Catholic country to legalize abortion. I am almost giddy that this has actually happened because it shows that women are finally taking their rightful place in the Mexican society.
However, we all know the fight has only just begun. Conservatives will come out of the woodwork now to protest and try to reverse the decision just like they have worked tooth and nail to do in America.
Funny thing, my husband told me the other day that if Bush and his cronies achieve their goal of making abortion illegal in the US – that will be the day that civil war breaks out in America. He is so right and I replied by stating that I would be on the front lines.
The right for women to choose when and if they will bear children should never, never, never be decided by men – as it was last week in the American Supreme Court. This issue has nothing whatsoever to do with men, yet they insist on pushing their patriarchal notions on women at every turn.
