Admittingly our Question of the Week column doesn’t actually come out “every week.” We have the best of intentions but some weeks there just aren’t questions worth your time. Sure, the occasional, “Are you going to Cuba?” or “Do you send remittances?” questions help to raise visibility for US-Cuba issues and provide valuable insight. But, they’re not the heart wrenching, polarizing topics that we really want to know about.
This week though, in the face of the recent decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, that’s not the case. Not at all.
If you listen to pro-life activists on tv, you’d think this is a decision the majority of America supports. It’s not; look at the data (any data). That’s why we’re running this as our question of the week. Although not scientific, and likely biased due to the nature of our audience’s preferences and beliefs… We want to know where you, our Startup Cuba community stands on the issue.
(We’ll share the results with you next week, anonymously of course.)
For the record, in case you’re wondering where I am: I vehemently disagree with the decision. As the father of three little girls, I don’t think a bunch of old AF dudes and a white woman from Indiana – who do not reflect the values and makeup of our country – should be making the decision on what they can do with their body.
Abortion is hard. Those faced with making that choice don’t do it lightly. But, that’s not the point, nor is it my business. What is my business is that you don’t make that hard decision for my daughters.
And, that nobody else makes that decision for yours.
Be heard below.
