On Meet the Press, Ben Carson said the “mother” (woman) should not be allowed terminate a pregnancy in cases of rape and incest. He drew an allusion to “slavery days.”
“Many stories of people who led very useful lives who were the result of rape and incest.”
That is not an argument. That is an excuse, Newflash Dr. Carson. Slavery exists even unto this day and even in this country. We are still in “slavery days.” That you would make such a comment proves your lack of information.
Here is the evidence. Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, included the U.S. in the annual Trafficking in Persons Report to the great consternation of some. The decision showed our better side.
No woman, criminally impregnated, should be subject to your judgment. You are no better than a male slaveholder when you say she should be. We own our bodies. We all do, men and women alike. You, Ben Carson need to do some homework. You don’t own us!

This is modern slavery, a crime that spans the globe, providing ruthless employers with an endless supply of people to abuse for financial gain. Human trafficking is a crime with many victims: not only those who are trafficked, but also the families they leave behind, some of whom never see their loved ones again.
If a woman gets pregnant this way she absolutely should have a choice to abort. Less demotes her to second-class citizenship at most and slave at most probable.
So can we please not worry about me liking cute shoes? If you question my feminist creds, check the archives here. It isn’t about the shoes. I do have a lot of shoes. I am short – vertically challenged. It has kept me away from folks at events. I can’t fight past all the tall Clinton Cowgirls.
The way to lengthen your look is to be monochromatic, so I do notice shoes. I have a lot of them to coordinate with every outfit so I don’t look cut off. If you are going to attack anything, please attack heightism, which makes me notice shoes. Thank you Adrien Arpel for pointing out that little fashion tip.
On height. One of 87 mayors today who endorsed Hillary is long, but not so tall.
