    I have been posting what you find below as often as I possibly can on a particular blog that appears to invite moderates, republicans, and democrats.  If you know anyone to whom you can forward my remarks or any others like it, then please do so.

    Even one vote could matter.

    **I hope that you, your mother, daughter(s), sister(s), girl friend(s) never have to deal with becoming pregnant from being raped, or has a health matter that risks the life of a fetus, or has a miscarriage.

    Because if any of these things happen to any women you know or love, then the Republican Party Platform calls for a 'Personhood' Amendment and it could mean that your loved one would be criminally sanctioned.  

    Ya'see, the Personhood Amendment that the GOP wants (and V.P. nominee Rep. Ryan co-sponsored in Congress – Sanctity of Life Act) would give Constitutional protections to the fetus that would be equal to you and the women we love.

    And if you’re concerned about government run healthcare, realize that:

    - In vitro fertilization or stem cell research would be banned.

    - Any miscarriage would be subject to a criminal investigation.

    - Any medical decision that risks the life of the fetus could subject the woman and her doctor to a criminal investigation.

    - And the real kick in the pants, not only would a woman be forced to have a rapists child, that man would also be afforded visitation rights.

    So when anyone votes for any Republican, they are also voting for and enabling the comments by Richard Mourdock who said, "Rape (that begets a child) is Gods will."  He was endorsed by Mitt Romney - it was the only Senatorial endorsement from Mitt Romney.

    A vote for any Rapepublican is a vote that could turn women into criminals

      He could quit his job and she'd have to pay him child support.

      The outrage level of this whole thing blew right past my pacifism limit months ago.  

      "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!

      I find it difficult to believe that most marriages could stand up to the complexity of adding the rapist's visitations rights to the already shattering difficulties and threats already endured.

      Time is a long river.
