Let me give you a little advice. Answer Sarah Sayre’s open letter to you regarding women’s autonomy.
And please answer this in the Spy. We voters need to know who advocates for women’s autonomy and who feels the government should control women.
Sarah Oppenheimer says
I agree – everyone should have autonomy over their own bodies. The government should stay out of it completely. The more governments fund personal decisions the more they own the people.
