I Resent

by Sidra M. S. Vitale

If you are not:

Then what on GOD'S GREEN EARTH do you think you're doing telling me what is the best thing for the fetus I carry!?

How is it that a TOTAL STRANGER, whether they are sitting in a comfy chair in Congress or perched in front of a kitchen table two states away from me, has more rights to make decisions about my pregnancy then I do?

Are you going to spend the rest of your life raising or mourning this child? No? Then why should you be in the driver's seat for the first 9 months?

What moral right do you have to force someone to abort or carry to term? Show me in the Bible the commandment that starts "thou shalt force other people's wives --", because I think I've missed that one.

Why are strangers given more power than parents? Someone riddle me that.
