Response to demwing (Original post)

Tue Nov 18, 2014, 02:42 PM

32. As a woman, I am uneasy over having "Right to Live" be item one, unless there can be

some clear distinction between that and the RW anti abortion movement that euphemistically dubs itself right to life. (I say this as someone who is inalterably opposed to violence, war, the death penalty, etc.) I guess it's covered by "sovereignty over our bodies," but it was still a shocker when I saw it.

I'd also like to see something that underscores that government's compliance with the Bill of Rights is NOT voluntary. If we have any right only so long as government sees no need to take it from us, then we don't really have that right. That is sort of related to equal justice, but I don't think it is directly covered by it.

Great job, though, for those who created the contents of the OP and everyone who commented on this thread.
