  • Abortion, inflation, gun control and the right to vote were among the many topics Americans debated ahead of the US midterm elections.

    Five US states held votes specifically on abortion on Tuesday.

    This saw three victories for pro-choice supporters, with Vermont, Michigan and California all enshrining the right to abortion in their constitution.

    In Kentucky, voters will decide whether the state constitution should remove all protection for abortion rights.

    The vote, like measures in Michigan, California, Montana and Vermont, will signal Americans' attitudes toward abortion after the country's Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade rights.

    In the wake of the ruling, 13 states banned or severely restricted abortion after the right to the procedure was struck down at federal level.

    “People of different religions & cultures live side by side in almost every part of the world, and most of us have overlapping identities which unite us with very different groups. We can love what we are, without hating what — and who — we are not. We can thrive in our own tradition, even as we learn from others, and come to respect their teachings.”

    Divine Love says:

    If you are a divine feminine, they make life miserable for divine feminine Moms and child. Mom and children will come under the constant radar of those who want her children and their energy. They are constantly watched and are always told what worthless parent they are. The father never comes under the same scrutiny. For years this can go on and can lead to many mental health issues for Mom because she is in crisis because she cant protect her children. Other issues such as being denied proper medical diagnosis and treatment for existing health issues, even though she has health insurance. They tell doctors not to treat her for any serious health problems. That is a crime and against the law.

    Nobody talks about the persecution certain Moms face in this country. This will cause some to opt out of wanting to have children.

    Government has no business in dealing with abortion.

    Marlin Hughes says:

    Whoever thought of it was mentally sick .. and the whole adaptation is Horrific.

    ronkirk50 says:

    A woman’s right to choose is just the tip of the iceberg of our rights and freedoms that the GQP plans to curtail if they ever get political power again, and for that reason as an old guy with no female children, I voted for the party that pledges to protect a woman’s right to bodily autonomy. The right or freedom they come for next may be one of my own.

    jason weinstock says:

    I voted for the party that wants to give out free school lunches to fourth graders,not the party that wants to force a 10 year old girl to carry a rapists baby

    bbc is aids says:

    You wont have anything to worry about.. you will be dead from cold and hunger under the demonrats

    Katana 123 says:

    @jason weinstock There is no party that wants to force a 10-year-old to carry their rapists child although there is one that wants to prevent them from being able to kill it

    Carina Peters says:

    This is not only about women right, this is about the Bible, God is completely against abortion!!! If u are a Christian u will understand!! Think about that living human that is in ur womb kicking u every second. Why can’t u prevent than to abort?

    Isaac Rubin says:

    Let’s go MICHIGAN: governor, proposal 3, state house and senate, ag, sos. Full sweep for gretchen

    Hooray for the Right to kill or whatever you believe

    isa love says:

    Forcing pregnancy on someone is cruel.

    Marlin Hughes says:

    🤣

    Marlin Hughes says:

    If the act was on purpose then the baby was as well

    Rebecca Valicoff says:

    As a RN, 50 years ago, a woman had to deliver a deformed, possibly dead fetus. For last 40 years this is not so because of the ultrasounds and parents could make a decision. Now we are entering a time where these deformed children, if survive, may live their entire life in a state institution. Would you really want this? If so, visit one of them and see if you could last even a day in one of them

    Rebecca Valicoff says:

    @Marlin Hughes no parties in high school or college? Hum! Or did you go with all women and never dated one and moved on?

    UFO says:

    The vast majority of unwanted pregnancies is simply a result of a trollop not being able to keep her legs shut.

    Rebecca Valicoff says:

    @UFO ” the vast majority”. Yes but it is not absolute! You said it . And we have a lot of men being irresponsible and pushing women to have sex so don’t tell me about legs can’t keep shut when we can talk about where men put their……

    UFO says:

    @Rebecca Valicoff
    Nope sorry.
    It’s fully a woman’s decision as to whether she engages in sexual intercourse. Absolutely fully a woman’s decision.
    There is already legislation for other forms of unwanted pregnancies but let’s face it.
    What modern women want is the right to open their legs and not have to deal with the consequences. Not even pay for it.

    Western feminism has Absolutely trashed women.
    Very sad.

    Rebecca Valicoff says:

    @UFO in denial… Rape!!! You show little respect for women that’s for sure

    Quiet says:

    Everyday citizens felt like they had no power when the concept of human autonomy and bodily rights would cause so much suffering and harm and take away fundamental rights. What happened was not a far cry from slavery and it was beyond evil and disgusting. Not every state is like California where they decided not to let these abhorrent decisions take power. Every action and stand we take against decisions like this matter and one of the most vital is voting. It’s why alot of people voted, myself included. Don’t let anyone keep you from standing up. She is absolutely right that this was not a bipartisan issue. It was a human rights issue.

    Leanne Smith says:

    Right to life, I agree, that also includes the mother , don’t forget that

    UFO says:

    There is already legislation for that.
    Any woman celebrating the right to abort the unborn as a simple choice is absolutely sick in the head.

    Mary Rabêlo. S. Wagner says:

    Only women with their own very individual and specific personal experiences can decide which is the best choice for themselves. It is a basic human right and quite obvious to the premises inherent to democracy – were it not for the plague of hypocrisy disguised as principles and values, which has plagued the world in the midst of the 21st century.
    Fortunately, we are slowly making progress.

    Anthony Kelley says:

    As an American man all I gotta say is abortion is a womens issue not a mens issue women should have the right to control their own bodies.
