Women should decide what happens to body

info@islandpacket.comSeptember 17, 2013 

With regard to the ridiculous analogy in a recent letter regarding chemical weapons and abortion: With all due respect, no man -- be he a congressman, clergyman or president of the United States -- has any right whatsoever to dictate to any woman what she can or cannot do with or to her body.

To quote one of the most famous, wisest and influential women of the 21st century, Gloria Steinem, "If a man could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament."
