Santo Domingo.- The feminist Denise Paiewonsky said they expect the population’s strong support in tomorrow Tuesday’s march headed by the National Resistance to Constitutional Backwardness and the Women’s Forum for Constitutional Reform, which demand the amendment of article 30 of the Constitution.

She said if approved as is international entities will penalize the country as the result of the impediments on Dominican woman for not using some pregnancy prevention devices and the possibility of conceiving via assisted fertilization.

Paiewonsky said the DIU and the “day after pill” prevent the implantation of the fertilized cell, for which these methods could be declared unconstitutional, as well as assisted fertilization, in which some of the fertilized cells are lost in the process.

She said among Dominican women, mainly those of low income, it’s a common practice to cause abortions and go to hospital emergency rooms afterwards to get their uterus scraped.

Paiewonsky, interviewed in the television program Despertador, said the march to Congress against article 30 will begin at 2 p.m., from the State University UASD.

The PROtestors Mother's did not believe in Abortion.

I wonder how many PROtestors will openly be proud of past Sucked and Scraped Uterus's, NOTHING LIKE EXPERIENCE.

PREVENTION is the KEY like...
Think before you Act, Take cold Showers, Keep your legs closed and your clothes on, Stay away from Hor%$ Men, Don't drink Alcohol, Plan your Monthly Activity's, Take care of your born Children, use Contraceptives or find other Jobs, past times and or hobbies. It does takes two too Tangle, unless your MJ or OctoMom.

I bet with the PROtest on Tuesday the Beaches, Night Clubs, Disco tecks, Streets, Bars and Tourist resorts would be empty.

FORGET THE STD's AND THE SPREAD OF HIV / AIDS....We'll be one happy Island in the Caribbean once again.

GOD SAVE THE DR, even from the Conscienceless, self respect less, low self esteem, Death over Life selfish Woman.

The other day my friend was eating Oysters and I could have sworn they looked like Human Aborted Fetuses too me.

Abortion should be an available option especially in cases where there are known defects. Look around and you will see so many children having babies at a young age and setting their life in a direction where both themselves and their children have no path out of poverty is horrible. At least if there were options some of these young ladies could make the proper choices with their own lives and be more prepared to raise children once they are both mentally and physically able to.

You have so many cases of physically and mentally incapable people having unexpected children with both physical and psychological defects it has an effect on the population.

Those against abortion only are in favor of keeping the majority of the population uneducated, malnourished, and living in poverty for generations to come.

"mrios" you make me LOL. PREVENTION is the KEY????Think before you Act???, Take cold Showers??, Keep your legs closed and your clothes on????.

Almost every one on the planet can distinguish from right and wrong, if it where that easy to avoid trouble dont you think this would be a better world??.

The problem is that humans "ARE NOT PERFECT" and we make mistakes, dont expect every one to be perfect (like you??) and not to have any temptation, because is not going to happend.

Right on; if we can prevent the murder of 75% of Dominican babies by irresponsible citizens we have done our country a huge moral favor.

Your right SELECTIVE BREEDING sounds great, Hitler was a pro at this, And to think teenagers without babies do have a better chance out of Poverty.

Predictor of the Future.
Your right no one not one is perfect including ME, Prevention is the Key ! are we missing a little sex Education here ? Humans being are the most Intelligent Beings on the Planet remember, yet judging one would think twice. Your right...."almost everyone can distinguish right from wrong"
2 wrongs don't make a RIGHT.
What ever happened to SELF CONTROL, I'm sure YOU like ME and Millions of others daily practice it all the time.

Funny coming from a person who claims hes writing from Afghanistan and lives in a "Little Mud Hut".... Huh ! Back to Nature ?

Question: Do you Guys still kill adulteress by stoning, or Abortionist by firing squad / beheading ?
What if....
Hitler, Stalin, Moa, Pol Pot etc..etc.. were Aborted ? what a wonderful life this would be.

I think it's ridiculous that this isn't a completely personal choice. If you don't want to abort your child or your wife to, then don't. Others will. Mind your own, it affects your quality of life nil. Don't worry about that fetus.

it is a question of choice and that decision is not mine to take. But the fact that we are discusing the need for legal abortion, is because we have a big problem.

There is a serious lack of sexual education in this country. We were all teens ... Did the "take a cold shower" speech work on you? It does sometime. And Please ,not all cases of unwanted pregnancy is from a girl being a whore, easy ... Please lets not generalize.
when the majority of young people ( and not so young) think its safe to use the calender method, the withdraw before its too late method.... No wonder...

I think education is needed, if we dont want girls and women to think that abortion is a contraception methode. Education is not fool proof, but it is a step in the right direction.

Shocking how the Attitude Men in general foster towards Woman in the DR, Men in the DR act and treat Women as Sex Toys, Cat calls unwarranted Sexual advances.
Lets face it Sex sells, looks are everything with "If it fells good, do it" MENTALITY.

ALL those "In 'n' out" "Me 'n' You" small one night stand Hotels that cater to the Sex Trade is it no wonder Children get exposed to that type of Life style.

Young experienced Adult Males hitting on Minors and Teenagers EVER HEARD OF STATUTORY RAPE, I was Shocked to find out most Young Mothers in the DR have more then one Child.
Serous...Who wants to Marry a "Been there done that, let me show you how" Wife w/baggage .

Denise should focus on the BEFORE rather then the AFTER.

Teach SEX EDUCATION, SELF RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY to all School Age Children M/F and saying NO is alright and to report those NASTY/HORNY Adults to DAD, Uncle, Grandfather & Local POLICE.

On this, we agree.


"Life begins at conception. Deep down you all know that is true."

That's highly subjective and depends on what you consider "life", and I'm not being abstract I'm just being honest with you.

Also there are some of us who DO believe life begins at conception or close to it but still believe it's up to the couple/woman involved to make the decision.
