As we sit here anticipating the outcome of a meeting with newly elected District Attorney David Prater and the attorneys representing Theresa Hernandez I can't help but wonder...why is this punishment so extreme for a wanted pregnancy?
The anti-choice, anti-woman, incubator only attitude in this state needs to be redirected.
Our fight begins with abortion but also includes the threat of decreased access to birth control, a challenge from think tanks such as the Oklahoma Council on Public Affairs attempt to shut down the women studies program at our universities, pharmacies in rural Oklahoma denying patients birth control because of their religious beliefs, and the truth that abstinence only programs are not working yet they continue to receive federal funding!
Why doesn't this scare the bejeezus out of Oklahoma women? Please post your thoughts!
