Source of my inspiration, though I wasn't going to discuss the act itself: http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-h3/show
Basically, this whole H.R. 3 thing made me think abour republicans, conservative people, and traditionally-geared mentalities.
You know who you are.. You're the ones with the "Women have certain places, and that's that" idea. Marriage is One man One Woman. The ones who think Men are from Mars and Women are .. well you know the drill. I'm not here at all to refute or argue with that mentality in this thread either. I want YOUR opinions.
If you consider yourself, or have been called by others, very tradition in the sense of gender and your thoughts on it.. Here is my question.
With the thought of Abortions being the inspiration in mind..
-How much say do you think women should have over their own bodies?
-Do you feel it is a "I don't know anything about women.. so I don't care. But I personally think it's wrong" thing? Or is it a "That sort of decision cannot be left to the woman alone without any say" thing? Or something else entirely?
-Should a woman be able to have an abortion funded if it WILL severely endanger her life?
-Should a woman raise a child that was conceived via incest and rape?
-Most importantly.. Do you feel men should be allowed to vote on things like this without women being in the majority?
I'm not looking for right or wrong.. I just want the opinions of traditional men on how they view women handling their own bodies and lives in the area traditional men claim women should be firmly placed in. If our main responsibilities are traditional to you.. then children are our number one priority. So how much say should we have legally with this in mind?
