The GOP would have you believe there’s no war on women after they started the war on women. The first opportunity they had to deflect attention away was when Hilary Rosen, off the top of her head, made the comment that Ann Romney never worked a day in her life. We all know what she meant but it gave the right ammunition to turn it into the war on moms. Just so we’re clear, there is no war on moms. That’s just plain malarkey and everyone, including Republicans know it.
The Guttmacher Group compiled fascinating research, proving without a doubt, the war on women in America is indeed real. Since taking over the House in 2010, Republicans have introduced 916 anti-women Bills related to reproductive rights.
Some of these Bills include:
Mandated pre-abortion ultrasounds.
Revised sex education laws to require schools districts to provide abstinence-only sex education.
57 measures that would restrict abortions in all insurance plans.
Full list here.
Perhaps most astonishing is the fact that Republican women are so lost in their own delusions, fear and racism that they don’t get they are voting against their own best interests. Much like a battered woman defends a physically abusive relationship.
It’s Romney’s War on Women now, and he’s got the YouTube Problem to prove it. In only one of hundreds of video-bytes of Romney discussing the rights he will take away from women, below is the Right-Wing Extremist Mittster expressing his absolute support for a Constitutional amendment to override Roe v. Wade — with the extra added bonus of expressing his absolute support for “Personhood” amendments that would outlaw some forms of birth control and could send women to prison for the crime of miscarriage.
