Era of Alternative Facts and Erosion of Rights

Those who may have questioned why millions of women across the globe marched on Washington, DC and on another 673 sites worldwide last Saturday, were given explicit answers yesterday when, the untested new administration in the White House, took away the rights of some women to have an abortion as the reference of  'alternative facts' emerged as substitutions to truths.

Less than 48-hours after the women of the world staged marches across the globe to rally for democracy, human rights, civil rights and reproductive rights, the new White House issued an executive order, in the company of eight-men, to cut off funding to Non-Governmental Organization(NGOs) that sponsor women having abortions in other countries. 

Also, on Sunday, an adviser to the new White House offered as "alternative facts' untruths. Following much evidence that confirmed the Women's March on Washington and President Obama's 2009 inauguration as having much larger audiences on the National Mall than the ceremony for the 45th President, an adviser to the President deemed as "alternative facts" the falsehoods of the White House Press Secretary in regards to crowd sizes.

Thus, what the world's women protested and marched about last Saturday in 673-plus locations worldwide, has essentially been realized: rights are being eroded as "alternative facts" are substituted for truths.
