Choice Should Be Woman's

Since the beginning of time, women have been prisoners of their bodies because men have always determined whether or not a woman would be pregnant.

Today, not much has changed, except that the man making those decisions are not a woman's husband but her congressman. Because of the lack of support by our government to find more effective forms of birth control, American women are continuously being faced with unwanted pregnancies. Unfortunately, the only way to terminate an unwanted pregnancy is an abortion.

Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) has been an extreme supporter of putting the right to an abortion in the hands of men in government. He does not understand nor care for the rights of half the voters in his district, the women.
