How can any American woman vote for Romney?
The Republican party have many who are stating that they want to take away a woman's right to have an abortion, even in the cases of rape, incest and when their own life is in danger.
If you doubt what I say please watch the report below by Rachel Maddow, which uses Republican's own words to show this.
As a woman how can you give up the right to control not just your own fertility but the right if a man rapes you to chose not to have the child, even if this is your father or a close family member.
How can you accept that if you become pregnant from the time of conception that the health and wellbeing of your unborn child takes away your basic human right to chose to live over the rights of your unborn child.
I can understand and respect any woman's choice not to have an abortion but that is a long way from telling a 12 or 13 year old child that she will have to carry and give birth to a child which is the result of a father or uncle raping her.
It will return women to being second class citizens, who's prime function in life is to be baby factories forced to give birth regardless of how they became pregnant or even if it will kill them to do so.
Women have spent hundreds of years in the US fighting to get equality, next to being given the vote the right to control their own fertility is the single biggest event to enable this equality to exist. Why would you vote for a party where many want to take this right away??

What you have to take into account is that some people (men and women) go strictly by belief. If someone "Believes" something so completely they will ignore the facts and make their decisions solely based on those beliefs. So, a woman who believes all the lies about President Obama will ignore the facts and proof that Republicans are prosecuting a war on women and vote for Romney and even Todd Akin.

Abortion rights does equal not mean rights for women.
You can spin it however you wish but it simply does not. They are two different issues.
I am pro-life, a woman, I believe in equality for women and I will vote for Romney. I have control over my own fertility. I don't need abortion rights to do that.
Using a Rachel Maddow report is basically the same as Republican believing everything that Rush Limbaugh says. They both on the extreme end of politics.

Oh please! You are basing your entire argument on a hypothesis that is so very very rare it's hardly basis for an argument at all.
And yes, I'm one of those women who believe that abortion is wrong AT ALL TIMES! A Christian woman realizes that, from the moment of conception, her body is no longer her own. She has absolutely no right to murder the baby growing within her. You may not agree with that stance, however, you can surely understand what I am saying and how many other women feel.
I do not believe that this in any way returns me to a second class citizen. It has absolutely no bearing on my citizenship or my rights as a citizen of this nation.
My duty as a responsible mother far outweight any of your so-called "women's rights."

I'm sorry but I completely disagree with you. I'm a woman and I do not feel under attack because we aren't. There is no war on woman. Yes Romney does not support abortion because it is morally WRONG. You can say its not removing a baby it's removing "tissue" but it's a baby. It's a life growing inside of you.. It is life. And ending it is wrong. When it comes to rape and incest that is another topic entirely. But if I was raped I would have the child. I wouldn't even have to think about it. It would go up for adoption and have the life it deserves. No sick man could make me end a life. Incest can cause so many health problems and what not so like I said its a different discussion. But people who just end the life of a baby for no reason other than selfishness and not wanting to provide for it or go through a pregnancy is disgusting. Romney wants to stop this terrible act by getting rid of it and by using the money to support our economy and the millions of hard working women in the world who need jobs. You and I see women in very different light. We are beautiful people who have the ability to make the most amazing thing in the world and that is life. We can have a child and regardless of whether or not we keep it, we can give it a chance in the world to experience everything life has to offer. And one day that child could become a doctor and save lives or find the cure for cancer, they could even become president one day. There are endless possibilities in the world and whether or not the child grows up to lead our country or works in a factory and comes home every night to a loving spouse and children, that is up to them. Because that is the baby's right to live. I could never support a woman who believes its her right to determine the fate of a child, OF A LIFE. We are not under attack. Do you think Romney wants to stop funding abortions because it seems like fun or because he hates woman? He is doing it because he knows in his heart it is wrong and wants to use the money that takes lives to help lives get jobs and get back on track. Your entitled to your own opinion but think about this, you would never have your opinions, or life, or family, friends, pets, relationships, spouse, children, whatever you have if your mother decided it was her right to take your life.

Well actually there is a misconception there. While there are Republicans who want to get rid of abortion entirely, Romney is actually in favor of keeping it in cases of rape, incest or when the mother's life would be endangered by giving birth.
The fact of the matter is though, if it isn't one of those, there really is no good reason to do it. I am adopted. My mother was 16 when she gave birth to me. She couldn't afford to care for me, but rather than killing me she gave me to a loving family that could care for me. I can honestly say that I am glad she decided not to be selfish by making things easier for herself and getting an abortion.

This happens every election cycle.
The liberal media (MSNBC) tries to distract and confuse their viewers with non-issues.
Questions of abortion and gay marriage are handled at the state level. The president has no authority or control over these issues.
He does, however, have a lot to do with the economy.
Your question should be....
How can any sane person believe that Obama is doing a good job with the economy?

Obama, is that you... you will do anything to get a vote , their is no war on women in this country the dems are just presenting abortion issues in a twisted way to make women think their rights are being taken away. Don't let these nut cases fool you.

If she is a an obedient Christian slave girl.
Abortion is just a scam the Republican party is using to sucker conservative Christians out of their votes. They will never outlaw it. It is their golden goose.

better than 60% of ladies voted for Obama. that is dissimilar white females, considering African human beings and Hispanics are nonetheless a small minority. they do no longer administration the election, simply by fact the conservatives might % you to think of. dissimilar white adult adult males voted for Obama, too, although no longer a majority.

Your first statement is in error. There is no "right" to an abortion. In the US, our rights are inalienable...they came from God. Our most precious right is the right to life. Unborn children cannot speak for themselves. If they could, they would say "please don't kill me." The US supreme court created the law which allows women to get abortions. The court was wrong.

Using Maddow as an example disqualifies you from an intelligent discussion to start with....if you are for abortion (killing a baby even as it exits the vagina) then we are sure you are also for the death penalty for murderers...also PLEASE pay for your own sexual protection if you are having sea on a regular basis .....
