Be vigilant, taxpayers (especially parents, women, and family breadwinners).
I have been watching all the political shenanigans in the works each time Obamacare (the ACA) is being considered for revision or replacement by anyone in any position in our government as well as in individual states. We women could fall by the wayside if Speaker Paul Ryan has his way and that way has become President-Elect Trump's way as well as the way of most Republicans in Congress.
My way is to remove them from office if there is any effort to reverse Roe v. Wade or to defund Planned Parenthood for that 3 percent of its government funding for necessary health services for both women and men which otherwise would have to be performed at a hospital or other medical facility. Tennessee Congressional Representatives Diane Black and Marsha Blackburn are members of that drumbeating crowd who are loudest presumably because they are women, although by far most of the other Republicans play from the same page.
It is obvious to me that the reason so many elected politicians and those waiting to be confirmed are trying to rush through revision and replacement simultaneously is to do all the dirty work at the same time before the people can learn about what they have done, including holding up on appointment of a needed Supreme Court Justice so they can control the political makeup of that "non-political" Judicial Branch of government and therefore create the power to control our laws and decisions of the courts. Well, my friends in this pitiful excuse for a "government of, by, and for the people," understand this message:
This woman is not about to allow any politician or government to usurp her inherent right of ownership of her own body or to take away her responsibility for making decisions pertaining to the care and use of her body by placing it under their jurisdiction through manipulation of the laws or use of executive orders.
And, no, a fetus is not a person at the moment of inception with all the rights as any other person as so many of you are trying to put in the laws. Some cannot survive to full term inside the mother's body for various reasons under which no human has control. Is our right to vote next on your agenda?
Get over it or look to a future out of office.

Dear Ms. Charlotte.
I, like many people, don't believe in abortions, but it's your body and you will stand before God one day and answer for the blood on your hands.
You don't want people telling you what to do with your body and I don't want my tax money going to pay for abortions.
Just because women want to have sex and not deal with the consequences doesn't make it right for taxpayers to foot your bill.
