Have to say, that David Pakman Show clip was BRILLIANT, particularly the ONE WOMAN speaking to a bunch of men who apparently have neither understanding of the process of pregnancy nor empathy for the women who may be forced to endure unwanted pregnancies.

If the irony were any thicker, you'd need a buzz saw to slice it.

"Women's rights", "LGBTQ rights", "Black rights", etc., are all ONE and the SAME: They are simply subdivisions of HUMAN RIGHTS. Once we embrace the concept of human rights, we embrace the concept of equal rights for everyone.

I like the comparison landlady - occupant, Andy; that is really how it feels!

Comment by Stephen Brodie on March 28, 2022 at 21:58

                        The fight continues.

The idea that abortion is only a woman's issue is a fairly new one. In the 70s and 80s, women and men fought shoulder to shoulder on this issue and other feminist battlegrounds. My Union and the Labour Party campaigned for equality in the workplace and a woman's right to choose we never thought they were different issues. In the UK and Europe, things have greatly progressed since then. Sadly it seems that the USA is heading in the opposite direction, even the way it is discussed in the land of the free is regressive and misogynistic.

Abortion is a relatively simple moral issue, as I perceive it.

I liken the woman to a "landlord"; and I liken the fetus to a potential "occupant" that may, or may not, occupy the woman's "residence" (her womb).

If a "landlord" grants occupancy to a potential occupant, then the occupant has every right to occupy the landlord's residence.

However, the landlord has the right to evict the occupant, under certain conditions. That is the abortion issue in a nutshell. It is a moral issue pertaining to the right of the occupant to "occupy" VS the right of the landlord to "evict". This occupancy issue has nothing to do with the landlord's body or what the spouse of the landlord may happen to approve of or disapprove of.

I trust that my graphic below suffices to explain my position. —>

Actual Doctor Crushes Republican Goons on Abortion

How I hate those ways to keep women where they want them! Reminds me of the enforced poverty some parents use to keep their daughters in place. Mine did, but without success.

Despicable attitudes.

Brazil's president, Jair Bolsonaro, has been accused of showing “contempt for the dignity of vulnerable women” by vetoing a plan to distribute free sanitary pads and tampons to disadvantaged girls and women.

The plan was expected to benefit 5.6 million women, including homeless people, prisoners and teenage girls at state schools. It is estimated period poverty keeps one in four girls out of school in the country. Tabata Amaral, of the Democratic Labour party (PDT) and one of 34 cross-party federal deputies who co-authored the bill, slammed the decision; “Bolsonaro says this project is ‘against the public interest’ – I say that what is against the public interest is that girls lose around six weeks of school a year because they are menstruating." In May, a report by the UN children’s fund, Unicef, and population fund, UNFPA, found that 713,000 girls in Brazil live without access to a bathroom; about 4 million girls don’t have adequate hygiene facilities at school, such as sanitary pads and soap, and at least 200,000 girls lack even the minimum hygiene facilities at school, such as bathrooms.
