I have become destabilized recently, despite my medication because of the recent ruling by the supreme court regarding a Women's right to control her own body. This has been erroneosly labeled the 'partial birth abortion' ruling but that is a lie. There is no such medical procedure. I know this first hand. It is a made-up term by the anti-choice people in order to inflame the average person into thinking that somehow nearly full-term babies are being killed for the convenience of evil women. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Still, 5 Roman Catholic Men have decided that women should not be allowed to decide for themselves (with their doctors) EVEN WHEN THEIR OWN LIVES ARE AT STAKE what action is appropriate if they are pregnant. No, that type of decision is now the perview of judges who HAVE DECIDED THAT THE FETUS LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE LIFE OF THE MOTHER CARRYING THAT FETUS. She now has no say at all. She must accept that she may well DIE so that the fetus may live. This is not a joke. This is the ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States as of April 17, 2007. It does no longer matter if this potential women may suffer the loss of future fertility; it does not matter that she may be force to give birth to a child who has no brain and, in fact may have not much of a head (ancephalic); it does not matter that this potential child has no spinal cord; no, the supreme court has decided that this women will be FORCED TO INCUBATE a child that will likely die within an hour of birth. I CAN'T FIND ENOUGH WAYS TO EXPRESS MY OUTRAGE AND ANGER THAT 5 MEN HAVE TAKEN OVER MY MOST PERSONAL DECISIONS.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
