It's time to vote, are you informed?


We have covered a lot so far in the weeks leading up to the election. I have already cast my ballot as I usually do, and if you have not already, I hope you will between now and Election Day Tuesday November 2nd. It is so important, because if you do not vote, it is like handing your voice to the other side. I cannot understand why anyone would want to do that. We all have our own voice, our own choice, and to keep it, we must use it.

Here are some more of the female Pro-Choice candidates running for office in this election.

President Obama has appointed Hillary Clinton for the next Secretary of State.

-Kirsten Gillibrand is running to take her seat in the New York Senate. She is Pro-Choice, pro-embryonic stem cell research, and in favor of gay marriage.

-Elaine Marshall U.S. Senate North Carolina, is a huge advocate of preserving Roe V. Wade, and federal funding of abortions. She also supports access to abortions for women in the military and equal rights for all.

-Chellie Pingree U.S. House Maine, She’s Maine’s first democratic woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. She wants funding for low-income family planning resources, and believes reproductive choice must belong to the woman.

-Caroline Maloney U.S. House New York introduced the “Stop Deceptive Advertising for Women’s Services Act“, otherwise known as H.R. 2478. Its purpose is to stop crisis pregnancy centers from using deception to steer women away from abortion. One of the most critical issues facing women’s choice.

-Betty Sutton U.S. House Ohio, wants funding for better healthcare for women, including contraception to prevent the need for and to reduce the number of abortions.

-Karen Bass U.S. House California, Supports women’s choice on abortion and helped pass expansive legislation against discrimination, and supports same sex marriage.

-Gabrielle Giffords U.S. House Arizona is supportive of women’s choice, and ending sex discrimination, as well as helping to stop the deplorable act of female genital mutilation.

-Tarryl Clark U.S. House Minnesota, A former Republican who switched to Democrat in the 1980’s, believes abortion should remain rare, safe, and legal.

In the past few weeks, as I have researched these candidates, and written these articles, I have learned a lot. I have come to know and admire some women, I otherwise may never have had the opportunity to.

One thing that I ran into repeatedly, was the term Pro-Abortion. I hate seeing it, hearing it, and at times, using it.

There is no PRO abortion. No one goes to Kmart to put one on layaway in anticipation of Christmas morning. Pro-Choice is a much more accurate term, and if both sides would work together to reduce the number of abortions needed, through education, health coverage, and contraception, neither term would be necessary.

In addition, as I have said before, save me the abstinence story. Sex is a part of human nature and there is no infallible birth control. Rape & incest and medical emergencies will never stop, and neither will women seeking abortions. Ignorance may be bliss, but it is not helping the cause.

Make sure, if you have not already, to make your voice and choice heard, Tuesday November 2nd and vote.
