People often demonstrate is many ways but do not bother to vote, sometimes it is simply because they neglected to register.
The intent is to limit women's healthcare choices.

And again, if they care enough to get out and march, they care enough to vote. Your opinion doesn't make any sense.

Yes, the election has been decided. And the new President took office, and is already taking steps to implement his policies. The time to let him know WHO his policies will impact, and WHAT the people want those policies to be...is NOW.

You don't cater to the people who voted against you.


Recipe for a one term presidency.

You craft policy that is for the good of the people. And when policy is not good for women, it's not good for the people.

Many women are not Pro Choice.
Many women believe Planned Parenthood should get their funding cut off until they get out of the abortion business.

For those of you who are pro march, pro funding of abortion, and Planned Parenthood. Would you also be in favor of government paid medical services for men? Say, colon and other cancer screenings, free male birth control, therapy for wives bothering me during the football games?

If you say no, then why pay for only women's needs- especially when most (if not all) insurance companies cover women's issues? If you say yes, why must taxpayers pay for what I am responsible for?

If women are going to demand that we not be involved in their body, then why do these protesters want my to write the check for their body? You want it- you buy it...

sorry DC I still believe many who choose to protest or march for any cause do not bother to votef course many do, but I think it is safe to 90% of those who march, if they are registered to vote are never going to vote for Trump period. As for women's health care choices, if that is what you want to call it, what rights are being taken away? No need to bring up Roe versus Wade, if there was ever a chance it would be overturned, which it won't the subject would have been an issue in 2000. Bush is 100% pro life.

You don't think my opinion makes any sense, why not; it is an opinion.

and what I asked many times but rarely got a firm answer: are those so in favor of pro choice as in abortion, how do they feel about capitol punishment?

If an oil pipeline might give the caribou a headache, they are ready to go give the little bugger a hug...
