    Hey Congress!,

    The extreme polarities of ideology being embraced in the messaging and policies (particularly concerning health/reproductive, social, and foreign policy issues) of both Republican and Democratic candidates in the nearing election are creating an uncomfortably noticeable chasm between women voters, and ironically corralling most of us, as polling heavily indicates, into moderation or "the middle", which strands us from being able to make an informed and comfortable choice on who to vote for without abandoning the primary issues that we need addressed and resolved &/or compromising our belief systems (a majority of issues directly affecting women have been unnecessarily inserted with political/ideological biases, arguably primarily due to counteractive lobbying) and aspirations of a secure, abundant, and healthy lifestyle for American women. Women for generations have strove to secure "a seat at the table" when it came to the inclusion of our ideas and participation, but now that we have our chairs, the tablecloth has been pulled. With that said, we need issues that affect women addressed, messaging/ideas that bring women forward and willing to participate in our democracy without requiring compromise, and politicians who are willing to meet us there to firmly advocate for our interests and effectively propel legislation that addresses the needs of the everyday American woman. 

     

    Sincerely,

    Isabel (F/23)

    Leave religion out of state issues.  Give our right to choose back.  It's my body and should be my decision only.

    Leave religion out of politics. We should have the right to decide our own personal choices with our body to our primary care physician. Freedom to do so . No man should have a right to decide what women can and can't do for their own health. Period.

    I am past my reproductive age but the thought that members of congress and judges are passing laws that affect women,  their families, their health and their equal rights and freedom has created a great deal of stress for me. I feel like the government owns my body

    Thank you all so much for your thoughtful posts! Sarah will be briefing members of Congress on your comments and the issues you've addressed. Several issues have stood out:

    -Women are extremely concerned about access to reproductive healthcare for themselves and their children.

    -Women are upset by the fighting in Gaza and Israel, and worry about the US’s role in the war.

    -Many (though not all) women feel frustrated with Donald Trump and the MAGA movement.

    In addition to her formal briefings, Sarah hosts frequent informal get-togethers with members of Congress at our DC office, where she also shares W2W member posts, comments, and anecdotes. The results of our surveys are always publicly available for anyone to peruse.

    Please get rid of MTG, Gates, Gym Jordan, Paul Rand, and the Speaker.  Give them one-way tickets to Moscow and strip them of their American citizenship.

    AS FOR Trump, **DOES anyone here remember what happened to the Rosenberg's, in 1954, for selling nuclear secrets to USSR?

    MAGA people are FASCISTS, and WE want our country to continue to evolve.  These growing pains are going to upset the New Testament Bible Crowd.

    However, religion is a choice in my country, to be determined by each person.

    The Bible doesn't belong in government.....HOWEVER, A love of G-d as we see him, and as well as acommitment to human rights -- which include how we treat widows, children, the least of our society, as well LGBT+ - are included.

     

    PLEASE GET THE TEPUBS AND DEMS TO COME TOGETHER TO HAMMER OUT BORDER AND IMMIGRATION RULES.

      my father in law wait Ed ten years in GE until he got a permanent work permit.  They arrived in 1955.

       he had to check in with the govt every 6 months or when they moved.

       He had to take the citizens test.

    I know our contiguous borders place us in a vulnerable position when it comes to immigrants from the South of our country.

     It's NOT right to give our $$ away to those who have not contributed in any way to our benies.

     

    I HATE AOC New Green Deal. However I HATE supporting Palestine BECAUSE VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW THE FACTS SURROUNDING THE WAY THE PALESTINE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN AND ARE ....HARMING THE JEWS.

    😔😠

    THAT INCLUDES THE UNITED NATIONS, WHO IS ANTI SEMETIC.

    Pease teach people that those people who are referred to as, "intersex," have a physical reason for their condition.  Their bodies do not recognize TESTOSTERONE.  As a result, while in the womb, when the Androgyn hormone sends testosterone to the testes to "drop" (very early on,) those testicles do not recognize the testosterone.  As a result, after they are born, they never develop secondary sex symbols, i.e. facial hair or any hair, and they need artificial hormones.  Those who do identify as female will never be able to bear children.

    What this means, is there clearly ARE people who physically ARE NOT BORN cis male or female.

    SBSK (Special Books For Special Kids,) a YouTube Channel, is run by a Special Education teacher named Chris.  He travels all over the country to interview special needs children AND THEUR PARENTS, to teach others how to befriend those who appear different. 

     

    He conducts two interviews with an Intersex person who identifies as female.

    Please, please learn about this.  We need people to know there's a physical basis for this.

    In the olden days, "Intersex," individuals were referred to as, "Hermaphrodites."

     

    Thank you.

    VOYE BLUE GET RID OF MAGA AND CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM

    I don't think I can write all the things going wrong in America in one post! Why are so many people blinded by Trump's lies? Why is he allowed to run for President with all the horrible things he's done & promising? How can the members of the Supreme Court hold their heads up after choosing to trample women's rights to their own bodies?

    Banned classic books, saying slavery was good...it goes on and on!

    We remember the photo of the dog on the roof captured during Hurricane Katrina. Veterans with his adult son,  ventured into flood water's to rescue stranded citizens.   Veterans Chronic PTSD impeded his ability to create a documentary. When an opportunity availed,  friend originally created  "Who We Are Hurricane Katrina ", which acquired Best nominations at the Southampton film festival.              At film festival in New York,  viewers first question is why have these gentlemen not been recognize for their bravery, chivalry, valor and humanity? Veterans story is a Trilogy.    Www.whowearedocumentary.com.   Kindly share with representatives and governmental liaisons to acknowledge these men for their  heroism during the USA's worst natural disaster.                              Appreciately Yours.

    I am heartbroken that my 2 grand daughters will not have the choices that I and my daughters had to choose our rights for our bodies. The Republican Party is watching  "The hand Maids Tale" and trying to change our country in every aspect. Books, Womens rights, schools, teachers, doctors, what else will we lose? I am a Democrat. I am 74 years old and I will never vote for a Republican. I am really tired of these old southern men making my choices. I don't live on much and now my diabetic meds are so expensive. Embryos are babies? Come on!!  Our Supreme Court is lacking in judgement and listening to Trump. Please Save Our Country!! Please!!!

    Can you ALL get it together to improve "OUR" country. As designed by the Constitution, with one nation under GOD. To accept our people who either were born here or received citizenship the right way! Enough is enough!

    I believe that all medical decisions should be between the patient and her doctor.  The government should NOT have any say in what MY decisions are concerning ANY medical procedure!!
