An abortion bill passed by the House of Representatives has been dubbed the "Let Women Die" bill because of the complete disregard it shows for the life of women and rights.
H.R. 358, otherwise known as the "Protect Life Act," will make it legal for a doctor to refuse abortion services to a woman, even if it's an emergency and the woman could die without the service. This gives doctors the ability to disregard the oath they all take when pursuing the medical profession. This gives doctors the right to let women die, all for the sake of their beliefs in archaic mythology and political ideals.
The United States of America is on a slippery slope, and this slope is heading backwards in time when women were forced to resort to back-alley abortions. The people on the far right will not be happy until women go back to the days of dying with coat hangers jammed inside of them in dingy motel rooms due to the lack of healthcare needed.
Meanwhile, conservative political pundits are disappointed that their attacks on women's rights aren't getting as much attention as the Occupy Wall Street protests. Huh, isn't that something? These so called conservatives took over the House with promises of fiscal responsibility, and have done nothing but ignore the dwindinling economy and lack of employment while unleasing brutal attacks on the freedoms and bodies of American women. Where are their priorities? In the wombs of American citizens or the stability of this nation? It's obvious what the answer is to that one, guys.
Fortunately, this bill has to go through the Senate before it can amount to anything. Good luck with that.
