Republicans Must Come
To Terms With Pro-Choice

By Frosty Wooldridge


Both parties run our country over a financial cliff, wreck us environmentally, fail to generate jobs for over 14 million Americans and culturally destroy our country with endless immigration.  The list grows.

One wonders why any American voted for either party’s candidates.  Our U.S. Congress provides the finest example of the Peter Principle—total incompetence.  Both candidates should have lost.  A third party candidate would do a better job because it’s obvious that democrats and republicans have failed the American people for two decades.

As the vote showed, 51 percent to 49 percent, we share a divided country.  Half hate Obama and the other half ride on his ability to provide welfare, food stamps, government jobs, assisted housing, amnesties and free medical care.  From 36 million to 47 million Americans now subsist on food stamps during Obama’s first term. A lot of folks cannot secure a job and a lot of folks like a free ride.

“Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” Thomas Jefferson

With such a failed four years by Obama, how did he win another term in the obvious light of his incompetence?  Answer: he enjoyed the majority-minority welfare vote. Folks love getting things for free.  But of particular note, Obama captured all those women who demand pro-choice.

At some point, the Republican Party must evolve out of the Dark Ages and accept Pro-Choice as a single, viable right for millions of women in America.  No one can legislate morality, ethics or personal choices.  Around the world, 46 million women annually choose abortion. They choose it because they cannot provide for another child.  They choose it because they cannot secure birth control.  They choose it because they suffer desperation of their poverty.

Notice that whenever a republican president reaches the White House, he kills the annual $180 million given to International Family Planning and birth control.  Republicans represent modern day moral troglodytes.   They never think about the 10 million children that starve to death annually around the globe because of the lack of birth control.

I remember my college years in 1965, when rich girls became pregnant, they took “Mercy flights” to Great Britain and returned un-pregnant.  The poor however, delivered babies by the truck load.  Their poverty became cyclical and horrific.

At the same time, 1.2 million American women turned to backroom medical butchers for abortions.  Some doctors provided abortions, but feared for their licenses from capricious women who might expose them.

Finally, in 1972, the Supreme Court provided Roe vs. Wade and gave women a choice.  Today, women may visit a Family Planning Clinic for counseling to either keep the baby or choose to terminate it.  It’s got to be a terribly distressing situation and choice either way.

But, by God, republicans and the religious right condemn it and vote to send those female sinners to the gates of hell.  What they don’t understand about choice is this: it’s none of their business.   It’s no one’s business how you eat even if you are so obese you are killing yourself.  (You ARE killing yourself, too.)  It’s no one’s business if you smoke or get drunk every night in an ongoing attempt to kill yourself.  It’s no one’s business if you smoke pot or not.   

Finally, your morality cannot be applied to anyone else

If the Republican Party expects to continue as viable, it must evolve into the 21st century.  It must deal with reality.  It must grant women their personal choices and its leaders must move to a pro-choice platform.  It needs to stop its “nanny-state” caretaking as to abortion, drugs and gay marriage.

If it fails to evolve, it will proceed at a rapid speed toward extinction.  The fact remains as Thomas Jefferson said, “A republic provides for the tyranny of the majority.”  In this case, the majority of women demand pro-choice.  Republicans either get onto the train or they will be left behind standing on the railroad tracks of the past.
