A reminder: turn over your wombs gals, you don't own them any more

What's happening to this country? According to the Washington Post:

New federal guidelines ask all females capable of conceiving a baby to treat themselves -- and to be treated by the health care system -- as pre-pregnant, regardless of whether they plan to get pregnant anytime soon.

Among other things, this means all women between first menstrual period and menopause should take folic acid supplements, refrain from smoking, maintain a healthy weight and keep chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes under control.


One more step in the increasing movement in this country to treat women as baby machines, incapable of making decisions for themselves.

What's next? A religious police force, like in Saudi Arabia, where they patrol the streets, beating women with too much makeup on, or who don't wear burkhas?
