Many things on the conservative agenda strike me as not only odd but also un-American.  First, abortion rights.  If Roe v Wade is overturned it will give the Fed control of American women's bodies.  I do not condone abortion.  But I do think that those who cry out for less government need to understand where this may possibly lead.  Beside the obvious illegal abortions, what about men?  Men are half of the story, correct?  Women are not asexual.  They need a partner in order to become pregnant.  Who is to say that vasectomy may be next?  If the Fed can control a woman's body, why not a man's?  Perhaps those crusty old men on the religious right might think twice about limiting a woman's right to control her own body if there's was also controlled.  Is this far fetched?  Not at all when there is talk of involuntary vasectomy for rapists.  Once the Fed steps into this area there will be no stopping them.  

A reminder to the far right Tea Party.  Someone once said, "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
