Overturn Roe v Wade maybe? 

I don't particularly see the real benefit of overturning Roe - in terms of healing our country.  Nor do I believe that healing our country isn't needed and I disagree with the premise that our nation has always been divided as well. 

I would like to see something truly healing to our social divides, including the issue of abortion.  I have been with several young women having abortions.  Not one single one of them considered it to be an experience they cared to repeat.  It is invasive, painful, stigmatized and emotionally injurious.   

Do I believe in choice?  Absolutely, fundamentally and wholeheartedly.  This is why I believe that a "healing" of this rift can occur if we actually decided to get together and stand for real choices.  I have spoken to many young men, including my sons, who are not afforded "choice" options through Planned Parenthood.  There are pills, patches, shots, clamps, rings, etc. as birth control for women.  Men are offered the condom.  I would like to see a shot, pill, removable clamp, etc. for men.  I really believe that IF young men were given their choice when and with whom they became fathers - they would be better fathers, there would be a significant decline in the number of teenage pregnancies, there would be less stigmata associated with "deadbeat dads" as many young, teen men without male role models are referred to.

I also believe in investing into education and assistance for single parents and daycare and early childhood education, but I really think that a key element is being ignored by not investing into the R & D to give men the ready options that young women are often afforded.  I think that if men had a better safety net like a shot or removable clamp, etc. they would use it and we would see one of the most drastic declines in abortion ever.

JMHO, however.  Smiley
