I call upon all the women of Utah. It is the right of each woman to have safe, legal abortions as part of health care. Going back before Roe vs. Wade, when women died from an abortion in large numbers, is unconscionable.

There must be women who do not want the federal or the state government to be ruling the health care of a woman's body. The Republicans’ direction is once again overreaching and destroying women's health care and against the Affordable Care Act, which provides the insurance for pre-existing conditions is now writing off a safe abortion.

This is what Utah is getting from the elected officials both state and on a federal government level. Women can get out and vote and change it.

The current Republicans, both state and federal, need to be voted out of office. New voices must be heard my hope is that women will step up and run for elected offices on all levels.
