I'D RATHER ROW THAN WADE

America is not only politically divided. It has completely lost its' way and the Supreme Court overturn of Roe vs Wade yesterday is the perfect example.


Went to lunch with a friend this afternoon and we were seated in a booth.  When the food arrived, I suddenly realized just how low my seat was.  My chin was almost even with the plate.  I asked the waiter for a booster seat.  He just looked at me.
“A booster seat?” I asked again.  “Do you not have one?”
“Um.  Yes.  We do,” he replied still staring at me.
“Would you bring me one?” I asked again.  “Or maybe you have some pillows?”
“Well, I see the issue.  This booth has the lowest seat of all the others but we don’t have any pillows.”
“Then just bring me a booster,” I repeated for the third time.
“Um.  I’m not sure you’d be very comfortable in one,” the waiter said.
Finally, I understood his reticence.
“Are you trying to tell me politely that you don’t think my butt will fit in one?”
He went violet. 
“Um, yes.  I guess.  I mean they are for kids.”
“Just bring me one and let me decide,” I said firmly.
Reluctantly, he returned with a booster.  I put it under me and maneuvered myself in.  I’ll admit the fit was snug but I finished my entire lunch sitting in it.
 
When the Supreme Court rendered their reversal on Roe vs Wade today, I was dumbstruck.  This is not a matter of whether abortion is right or wrong.  This is simply giving women the CHOICE of what to do with their OWN bodies.  If men gave birth this never would have been an issue.  Never.  Not once.  Not ever.  Not in 1973.  Not now.
 
Just bring me the damn booster and let me decide if I want to sit in it.
