When Roe vs Wade was passed there were thousands of women were freed from jail and prisons.

When Roe vs Wade was passed there were thousands of women in jails and prisons throughout the country; charged with murder for abortions. Unsure, or mysterious miscarriage were sometimes deemed an abortion also.

It was once a law that if a woman had an abortion and her husband didn’t authorized it she could be sent to prison for murder.

Many of these women’s sentences were abolished with the signing of this bill. So, if Roe vs Wade is overturned, and if these women are still alive, they can be send back to prison.

These convictions can be reactivated because these women were in prison for murder and murder has no A statute of limitations. I’m not saying it will happen but it can.

On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court issued a 7–2 decision in favor of “Jane Roe” (Norma McCorvey) holding that women in the United States had a fundamental right to choose whether to have abortions.

Ending Roe vs Wade could send women to prison for miscarrying if she can’t prove she did nothing to cause it. This is some of what I meant, when I say the law is about a lot more than abortions. If a woman can’t prove she naturally miscarried then she can find herself in jail and this once happened and from the looks of things, can it happen again.

The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

        • The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the right to keep and bear arms. It was ratified on December 15, 1791, along with nine other articles of the Bill of Rights.

          Look at the year when this bill was ratified, it says 1791, over two hundred and thirty years ago. It was a different climate in 1791 than in 2022. This law was made in response to the British having made it illegal to own and bear arms. The laws of feudal Europe was impaled in the colonies. Today, America is the strongest country in the world, there is no chance of any foreign country walking down our streets shooting Americans. This law was needed in 1791, not needed in 2022.

          Something has to be done about the mass shooting. Things can not go on indefinite as they have for the last 30 years. There have been over 250 mass shootings so far in 2022.

          The Revolutionary War ended January 14, 1784 but Britain was still on this side of the pond. There’s a time and season for all things.

            The concept of States and citizens have rights defines the political notion of a republic – ancient Athens. Citizen rights defines the American and French revolutions.

            Since when did citizen rights become passé???????????????????????

            • Greek idea of a republic was nothing like the modern concept. It was the foundation but it only offered rights to certain Greek men. Everyone else was chattel, including most women.

    I hadn’t thought about this part of the law. You’re right. If a nasty DA decides to bring these old cases up again, they can, if Roe is repealed. And at the rate things are today, I wouldn’t put it pass a very Conservative D A to overturn those individual cases. That’s scary

    Why do men get a say in this matter when they can’t bear children?

    • Because the ERA failed and we live in a patriarchal society. When modern historians and sociologists describe a “patriarchal society,” they mean that men hold the positions of power and have more privileges than women. This power extends into controlling the female reproduction.

    Why do men get a say in this matter when they can’t bear children? I mean this couldn’t be the case since men can’t get pregnant. The ability to give birth is what make women a woman. I feel being a woman is being made a mockery of.

    • I looked back at history and this is not new. Athens, Greece was full of cross dresser. Rome eventually outlawed this practice. The most famous one was the Emperor Hadrian and his lover Antinous who dressed like a woman.

    The ability to give birth is what make women a woman. As a woman, I feel being a woman is being made a mockery of. Putting on fake breasts and taking hormones do not make one a woman. Only God can make a woman. Thereby, there is a lot more to being a woman than even transgender wo/men think. They don’t go through the entire experience of being female, the painful process in being a woman. They never experience developing breasts and widening hips. To many girls this is painful. Add this to the hormonal fluctuation every day. They will never experience the agony of childbirth. They will never experience the hot flashes of menopause. They don’t go through the precautions women must take to stay safe because the other half of humanity is homicidal and crazy. They didn’t start out their lives as second class citizens, so how are they to even begin to say they feel like a female when they have no idea what it feels like to be one.

    This is like my saying “I feel like a fish and pull on a fish suit and jump in the water, when I’m not a fish, I’m a human. A homo sapien. I can’t tell other fishes I know what it’s like to be a fish when I don’t.

    • I agree, you are right. One can’t fully know what it is like to be something if you aren’t of that species or gender.

    • Quite so. I am a man. I have had iodine injections for CT scans so I have a small idea about the hot flushes of menopause. I was warned but it was still a peculiar experience.

      Still, at least I do have a small idea and that is better than nothing.

        First, let me say this, I’ve nothing against transgender people nor gay people. Whatever their desires are, is fine by me. What am talking about is the disrespectful invasion of women’s space by men. That is wrong. And the worst thing about this is that you, the born female is not allowed to defend your feelings without being accused of being prejudice. As a woman, I want the same respect as the transgender person is striving for and I don’t feel that is discriminating against anyone.

        It’s like my saying because I like some hip-hop and rap music I know what it is like being African American when I don’t. It’s the same when transgender wo/man say they know what it is like to be a born a woman.

        Every month born women and girls goes through a painful period where we have to ignore our suffering and put on smiling face and deal with the world. The male dominated world doesn’t give two shytes you’re in deep pain.

        If anything, it’s joked about. Every time a woman assert herself it’s blamed on her cycle.

    The small idea is just a foretaste of menopausal suffering. There is a lot more. There’s a lot of emotional suffering as well and doctors do very little to relieve your suffering.

    For example. That situation where that guy was allowed on the women swim team and put seam all those women. That was wrong.

    Every month born women and girls goes through a painful period where we have to ignore our suffering and put on a happy smiling face and deal with the cold world. The male dominated world doesn’t give two shytes you’re in deep pain.

    Just like the world doesn’t care about the unborn or born child, it’s control the woman the world cares about. Women are easier to control if they have children.

    • Dear Debbie

      My wife suffered a lot less regarding her menopause. Indeed, her periods were not nearly as bad as some women experience. I once met a client whose wife was only really well when she was pregnant. Each person, each woman, is different.

      Whilst I won’t try and discuss the transgender issues here in detail, the problem is from the transgender perspective, it is perfectly logical to them or at least some of them to be included on women’s sport teams.

      This is all the end of a long chain of short steps which seemed acceptable to some in and of themselves, but ignoring the slippery slope into the chaos we have now. I agree of course that the guy allowed on the women’s swim team is just plain bonkers.

      As regards doctors, my opinion of both male and female main stream doctors is at an all-time low. In the NHS (I am from the UK) they know very little about the real issues regarding disease, that it is primarily an individual thing for each person depending on their lifestyle and what they eat and drink.

      I have a diagnosis of cancer which I now know to be wrong, no thanks to the NHS. I have yet to detail on my site, although I have made comments to people online. I was given immuno-therapy which I believe has added to my existing symptoms. I am now trying to detoxify.

      I do care about women in deep pain. My wife has had a very deep pain called an older sister! The sister made my wife promise when my wife was only 8 years old not to get married before she did. Her sister only married when my wife was 39 and then she and I got married the following year after a brief engagement.

      As regards women’s pain and emotional stress, I had to live with my parents having periodic terrific arguments, probably during my mother’s periods I daresay. There was a family issue with my paternal grandmother which caused massive emotional disruption which I and my sister had to carry, let alone my mother and father.

      The doctors had put my mother on Valium which was pointless, let alone harmful and will have made things worse. Most big pharma drugs are utterly pointless, if not harmful even deadly. It took me in 2020 at 60 years of age to understand this. I am, to put it mildly, very, very angry about this.

      I am trying to address this on my site and to expose the truth so that women and men can be healed and be well. I do use humour on my site as I play with words as if I did not I would weep so much I would be useless to anyone, let alone myself.

      Kind regards
