No More Wire Coat Hangers

What can I write about in the blog?

If I don’t write about Mr. Toupee’s latest hate crime what can I write in here?

We have elected a madman. He’s enacted an executive order that will greatly restrict women’s access to birth control and abortion.

With the overpopulation of the world, with the ongoing #MeToo misogyny of too many men against women, do we really want to be forced to carry a baby to term against our choice?

You can go on the New York Times website and read about this restrictive measure Mr. Toupee has enacted in order to keep women everywhere “barefoot and pregnant” even if we don’t want to be.

Women living in poverty, women with disabilities, women everywhere will now be restricted from getting access to birth control and abortion.

This right to determine when and whether we want to have a kid is closer to being totally denied by the Church and the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S.

This is a kind of crazy like no other crazy.

Listen: I had a breakdown when I was 22 years old. Long before that I knew I didn’t want to get married and raise a family. That was my choice ever since I was easily only 15 or 16 years old.

No one would adopt my kid if they found out the baby’s mother had a breakdown.

Forget raising kids in orphanages too. Who’s going to create and fund more orphanages? Will the U.S. government fund orphanages instead of wars?

Women shouldn’t have to rely on men to get money to raise a kid. Too many women have had to flee with their kids from abusive relationships. They often wind up homeless.

What is normal about not allowing women access to birth control and abortion?

What is normal about legislation that amounts to a hate crime against women?

All my adult life I used birth control because I didn’t want to have to choose to get an abortion.

The Gig’s up: Mr. Toupee is one step closer to totally taking away our rights.

Remember: we voted for him. OK–I didn’t yet others were proud to. Mark my words Mr. Toupee will be elected to a second term.

The rendering of powerlessness to all citizens is now nearly complete.

Are we to be grateful that most of us ordinary citizens will have our right to life liberty and pursuit of happiness taken away? This coup is coming soon.

I think Mr. Toupee actually wants people to live in poverty, have ill mental and physical health, and not read a newspaper.

This way we aren’t powerful enough to protest what goes on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
