Only women should decide women’s issues


Rushville Republican

RUSHVILLE — Dear Editor:

How’s this for a badly needed new law? Only female legislators should be allowed to vote on matters relating to women’s health and reproductive systems.

Most male legislators, particularly the Republicans who run backward Indiana, would really like to return to those halcyon days when women were kept pregnant, barefooted and in the kitchen. Their wives are expected to be “submissive” to their husbands, who are to be treated as the lord and master of the household.

Indiana is steadily moving to the rear under the control of arch right-wing zealots, headed up by Governor Pence.

Can we turn things around, or is our regressive stance a permanent condition? If nothing else, it’s time for the G.O.P.’s war on women to come to an end.

Only women should decide matters relating solely to women.

Best regards,

Norm Voiles
