So I get up this morning and the sun hits my face and I turn around and the first thing I see is my daughter. She wakes up happy every morning.That right there makes me happy and gives me the strength to be the superwoman I know I am. Isn't funny how children don't worry about the rent,bills,what people think of them or any of the things adults let stress them out. Oh to be young again!But for little people that are so careless you can always tell that they love you. I say this to say I want my daughter when she gets older to feel she can be a superwoman and continue to be worry free just as she is now. Know that she can soar in the world,be a doctor,lawyer,feminist, or even a superstar. Whatever she wants! But she makes me a superwoman for right now. I know for a fact if I didn't have her some days I probably wouldn't get out of bed. She gives me the strength to get up everyday on the hectic search for a job. To keep believing things will get easier and continue in the every day fight to survive. Get up go to school,go to work and get home and fix dinner while practicing abc's. So maybe she's a superwoman already or supergirl turning into superwoman.

In 2000 Senator McCain did not support the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Now he's all for it. He's Pro-life!!!!! Yes, that's just how proud he is. This morning on Good Morning America both McCain and his wife were asked about him now being in support of it's overturning, she replied, "Look, people are concerned with the economy, where their next meal is going to come from, the oil prices. No one is concerned about our views on abortion!!" I'm concerned and everyone else should be also. The Supreme Court has the power to overturn Roe v. Wade. If McCain becomes the next president, he has promised to appoint three justices to the Supreme Court whom have all questioned Roe v. Wade. This election is literally VOTE OR DIE!!

Privacy or Not?

The right to privacy has suddenly cropped up in the conversation but from the other side of the table like it is a brand new word. We have been saying all along that a woman has a right to make her own control her own determine if she wants to be a mother or not. Government shouldn't dabble in a woman's personal choice. However, when it's the other side of the argument, then privacy becomes a really big elephant in the middle of the room.

I do believe that women should have a right to privacy and they shouldn't be raked over the coals for whatever decision they make. However, it can't just be one side of the argument that gets to benefit from this. Treat all women fair and square. Leave them alone on the issue of reproductive choice. Let them make their own decisions about whether they want to become mothers or not!

We may not be able to agree on abortion..........

We may not be able to agree on abortion but we can agree on the number of unwanted pregnancies that is what Obama said on august 28th. WHich is so very true. Every year acroos the country millions of women have unwanted babies and abortion is one solution and I'm not saying it is the best solution but it is a solution. Lets be real people, %75 of americans especially african americans don't plan on having kids but do and in this day and age children are costly bundles of joy but costly. How can you afford a child if you can't afford rent. I for one am glad Obama had the courage to say what he said. You should have the courage tooo!
