Call for women's rights difficult to understand

By Jakki Taylor


Dear Editor:

Congratulations to John Heckman on his desire to proudly wear a "pussy hat" as he finds fellow progressives to march with under the guise of women's rights while participating in a thinly disguised anti-Trump, pro-abortion rally. Oh, yes, that is exactly what those demonstration were about.

While I don't claim to be able to read the marchers hearts and minds, I can darn well read their signs. Like millions of other women, I am hard pressed to understand what rights they are claiming to protect as the last administration clearly infringed on my rights to choose a health care plan that wasn't required to cover birth control and other services that I may not need or want.
