Trampling on rights

Letter to the editor

Posted: Wednesday, January 12, 2005

An Associated Press article in Friday's Juneau Empire described how new Justice Department guidelines for treating rape victims omit mention of emergency contraception as an option in treatment.

Depriving women of the right to emergency contraception in these circumstances is one of the most pernicious forms of female slavery. It demonstrates, again, that civil rights are being trampled by the George W. Bush administration - especially the civil rights of women.

Americans once saw fit to undertake revolution because of another George who trampled on rights. Beware this one.
