If You Took A Knife And Cut Me

If you took a knife and cut me
Every time I lied
My body will be full of slashes
Still I’ll bleed more lies

  1. The Dilemma of Women’s Rights in the United States of America: Women’s Rights are Human Rights

    Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade on June 24, 2022

    By Prsp. Dr. Evenson Dufour: 6/24/2022

    On July 4, 1776, Congress unanimously passed the Declaration of Independence so the world could witness the birth of a new nation. This newly independent nation in the 18th century could not show enough maturity to accept women’s rights as human rights. In the United States, women had to wait until 1920 to exercise their right to vote. Let’s calculate: 1920 – 1776 = 144 years. This period of over 140 years of historical nonsense against brave American women must be considered dark days for women. Because when women’s rights were taken away from them, they were not seen as human beings equal to men. What an absurdity!

    Their constitutional rights have been viciously attacked for more than a century in the country which wrote them down black on white in the second paragraph of its Declaration of Independence which reads: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, which all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, among which are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. But women from 1776 to 1919 couldn’t exercise the liberty to vote, to choose, and to decide. What in absurdocritical system!

    Yes, the system of absurdity and hypocrisy was too blatant because in the declaration of independence, only pseudo-men or human beings could not have a sufficient level of understanding not to interpret the words: “all men are created equal” in the right context. The word “men” in this sentence is not in the context that men are equal to solely ‘males’. No, no and again no! Rather, it means that all human beings are created equal. Since this perfect phrase or idea was written black on white in the Declaration of Independence, why did this absurdocrizy last over 140 years before women could exercise the simple act of voting? Why the system had to wait until August 18, 1920, for Congress to ratify a so-called 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote. If it is the 19th Amendment that legally guarantees American women the right to vote, it means that the question of inalienable “rights” could not apply to women. Therefore, women are not born as human beings according to the absurdocritical system.

    What does the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade mean for women’s rights today 6/24/2022?

    Answers: First, women do not have the right to decide about their own bodies. Second, women’s bodies are not their personal property. Third, women should be restricted when it comes to having sex. Fourth, the consequences of sexual pleasure could jeopardize the future of women since they should remember that if fertilization took place after having had sexual intercourse, their right to decide whether to stop the development of a fetus inside them with or without consent has been revoked or taking away.

    Although I am strongly pro-life, I still believe that taking away a person’s right to decide about their own body based on many factors and risks is not the right path to take for many reasons.

    First, women are created with the same Creator as men; the United States of America must uphold the word of its own declaration. If a woman feels, in her application of freedom and the pursuit of happiness, by not pursuing a cycle of fertilization, she feels free and happy, so not allowing her to freely decide her own pursuit of happiness, isn’t that considered a violation of her right to choose her destiny?

    Second, setting aside ideology and religious beliefs, I fear that a good majority of American society is beginning to experience the supreme branch of government, namely the Supreme Court, as a tyrannical branch. The tyrannical power to interpret the law and the constitution can lead to unforeseen circumstances and struggles when political and religious ideologies predict the outcome. The tyranny of the judiciary can use its power to interpret the law without taking into account scientific logics, sociological logics, psychological logics, etc.

    Third, a court ruling by many judges who disregarded a majority of a person’s alienable rights cannot be called anything other than a group of tyrants. What do tyrants do? They deprive people of their rights, their freedom and their will to choose.

    I think the subject regarding abortion in the United States is very sensitive. As a pro-life, I can clearly understand the concerns of pro-life movements. But we must remember that we did not create the women, so the creator creates them with free will. Let them manage their own body. In 2022, the 21st century should not be the century of the cancellation of individual rights; on the contrary, it should be the century of the consolidation of the rights for people to choose, to decide on the pursuit of happiness, and of respect for individual freedom.

    The dilemma of women’s rights in the United States is at a delicate crossroads. Let us never forget that women’s rights are human rights and that human rights are women’s rights! It is sad to note that after approximately 102 years since their acquisition of the right to vote, a good majority of women are in the throes of a new major struggle based on a decision inflicted by the absurdocritical system.

    I believe that the decision for women, depending on their situation, to get pregnant and stay pregnant for nine months is not easy. Remember that no matter how developed the health care system is, pregnancy always carries many risks. Instead of taking away their rights, let’s see how we can support, understand and stand with them. We all exist because they agree to carry us out of their wombs after 9 months of holding us and risking excruciating pain and suffering. Let’s find a way to make it safer and less scary for them to give birth to future human beings. Probably after all our support, they will find it easier and less frightening to continue to ensure and secure the future of human existence on this planet. I am pro-life, but I can’t dogmatize the pro-choice!
