The war on women is absolutely and shockingly real.
Our discourse shouldn’t be focused on which lesser of two evils represents you best or about your participation in the 2012 elections. This is about a broken system waging war on women and women’s right to proper healthcare and about OUR reproductive rights.
The GOP has successfully developed the kind of initiative that can destroy this nation from its core and the worst part about it is that they coerce the citizens of this country, with good hearts and genuine minds, to actually believe these biases and so therefore warp intentions. The actualized intentions behind the GOP’s initiatives are to delegitimize women and to perpetuate the war on women. Romney, Ryan, Akin are all pushing for some kind of absolute control (to them, it seems that women are easy targets). The perspective that these men hold are dangerous and threatening. They are actually implying that women and their bodies are somehow responsible for rejecting legitimate rape sperm…that getting pregnant after a rape would indicate it was not a legitimate rape. And referring to rape as a “method of conception” is ludicrous. Rape is a violent act.
These statements are directly attacking women across the nation. It’s quite saddening that I still have to fight for my rights as a woman and for the rights of women in present and in future. (I enjoy it, trust that.)
I can only account for my own opinion. Your comments serve as your own example alone. There has been a constant attack on non profits like Planned Parenthood by the GOP, and violations against the betterment of women. The GOP has not stopped spending millions of dollars in an attempt to lure women away from birth control and abortion supporting organizations. They are definitely “women hating” and are hella sexist.
What is most disappointing are the people that deliberately waste their time pointing fingers at the left wing (just as the Right Wing would want you to) and call it a ploy or a hoax. It’s as bad as Fox News routinely talking about “the so called” war on women.
I could never vote for someone like Romney, and I honestly can’t understand why anyone else would do so. He doesn’t even support the Dream Act which could help thousands of people. Romney does NOT represent the middle class. He represents the elite that controls the systems set in place. He represents the Koch brothers, he represents corporate conglomerates. What he really wants to do is do whatever possible to maintain the illogical status quo that hasn’t worked for a very long time.
Contraceptives should be about equality! #NoRomney
