ABORTION VOTE REJECTED, BAD ELECTION NIGHT FOR REPUBLICANS.
Icheoku says if the results of today's elections in both Ohio and Mississippi States are harbinger of the upcoming 2012 election, then there is no cause for alarm for President Obama and the Democrats as Americans have wised up and are now ready to take on the Republicans. It would appear that Americans are tired of the Republican deceit as well as their inclement anti-peoples policies that they are now ready to make statement with their ballot papers. It also does not matter what the Tea Party loonies think or do as this is not their 2010.
Two highly controversial Republican backed propositions against labor and woman's right to choose, were voted down as anti-human and retrogressive effort by the Republicans to put Americans under unnecessary chain. In Ohio, Republican supported and financed anti-union Collective Bargaining Law was rejected by Ohioans who saw it as too overreaching. And in the Bible belt southern state of Mississippi, home of former senate majority leader Trent Lot, the voters there rejected a whack proposition to make fetus a human-being for the purposes of criminally punishing abortion. Their fable that fetus incapable of independent existence outside the womb is a living person for the purposes of protection under the law, which would have criminalized all abortions including in cases of rape, incest or breached pregnancy, is rather over-broad and preposterous. Proposition initiative 26 or the "Personhood Amendment Law" could have made abortion a death-penalty offense in Mississippi.
"Icheoku says imagine a state as impoverished as Mississippi, where it is okay to put people to death, is spending scarce resources trying to criminalize and punish medical flushing out of blood clot? Who knows when they would have extended such a planned Talibanistic law to also guard against masturbation and/or the monthly menstrual cycle, which by necessary implication, could be interpreted as living persons; using the intended Mississippi's warped and peculiar standards/rules of interpretation? Icheoku commends both progressive votes by the people of Ohio and Mississippi states and urge them to follow the pattern in 2012 . It is a new and good day in America when voters in America start using their heads more often instead of their hearts, to vote right and vote correctly.
