A New Oklahoma Legislature Gives Men More Power

Abortion has been a controversial topic for years. Some approve and others don’t. It’s a mostly even split. That aside, it is almost always the woman’s choice whether she gets an abortion or not. Now in Oklahoma, that isn’t the case. A new bill has been passed in the committee that requires women to get written permission from the father of the child before an abortion can be carried out.

“I understand that they feel like that is their body … I feel like it is a separate — what I call them is, is you’re a host. And you know when you enter into a relationship you’re going to be that host and so, you know … take all precautions and don’t get pregnant. … After you’re irresponsible then don’t claim, well, I can just go and do this with another body, when you’re the host and you invited that in.”

This statement comes from Oklahoma State Rep. Justin Humphrey, who created and advocated for the bill. Even with exceptions granted for cases of rape or incest and dangerous pregnancies, this bill and Humphrey’s words are wrong on many levels.

Women are not just “hosts.” We don’t exist solely to carry around a man’s child. We have our own struggles, our own rights and opinions. We have our own lives, and they don’t revolve around pregnancy. It is our right to make decisions for ourselves no matter what the issue might be, and that should include abortion. Men shouldn’t make those decisions for us, because they don’t know what we go through, not physically. They can’t truly know what it’s like mentally, either, to find out you’re pregnant and therefore going to be responsible for a second life for at least nine months.

What should be done if the woman wants to keep the baby, but the man doesn’t want to? What if the man wants the baby and the woman doesn’t? If the woman wants the baby but isn’t able to take care of it for whatever reason, then what? There’s also the possibility that a man would deny an abortion and then leave the woman with the responsibility of raising the child on her own, regardless of any preexisting issues in her life. Hopefully there aren’t too many men like that, but at this point, anything is possible.

A woman’s body belongs to herself and no one else. Don’t give men the power to change that, in any form.

    I do love the manner in which you have presented this particular challenge plus it does indeed offer me a lot of fodder for consideration. On the other hand, from what precisely I have observed, I just simply wish when the actual remarks pack on that people today remain on issue and don’t embark on a soap box involving the news du jour. Still, thank you for this fantastic piece and although I do not concur with the idea in totality, I value your standpoint.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
