In the wake of the Hobby Lobby decision by the five inquisitors on the U.S. Supreme Court, it is very important that the women or America act on a local level to protect their rights to comprehensive health care, accurate and medically correct sex education, as well as defending marriage equality.
In other words, women, vote for the 21st century values that now define your lives, not for the 16th century values that the U.S. Supreme Court wishes to impose upon you.
Women who care about their rights, as I do, can vote for 21st century values by voting for Shari Song for District 30 senator. Her opponent is a medievalist from the 16th century, steeped in the values of that long ago time in regard to women's sexuality, reproductive health, and the constitutional right to marriage equality.
Vote for yourselves. Not for ancient, outdated values.
Karen Hedwig Backman, Federal Way
