Rep. Walt Blackman used the first day of Black History Month to sharply attack women’s right to choose and to insult women. Blackman claimed that black women have been duped into having an abortion by Planned Parenthood. This is insulting to anyone who has suffered an unwanted pregnancy.
Blackman — like other Republicans — ignores the role of the FATHER in unwanted pregnancy. If men want to prevent abortions, have sex only with your wives, wear a condom when you don’t want to create a new life, and “just say no” to unprotected sex. Older men should consider getting vasectomies to prevent abortions.
Stop trying to control women’s lives and decisions.
