    However, that always was a false argument.  There is nothing inherently more worthy about aggression to preserve a culture than childbirth to preserve a culture. It is so treated only because men have the ability to forcibly impose that bias.

    Women sacrifice for family and country on a daily basis and for all of their lives. The work women do in the home is as important and vital as any other to preserving the culture and nation; but it is not even acknowledged in economic assessments. Until the 20th century, childbirth was a frequent cause of death among women.

    Women have always been as essential as men to the survival of our species and country, yet our laws seem blind to that essential truth.
