While the so-called conservative war on women remains a favorite topic of talking heads, actual assaults on the gender are increasingly coming from the political Left. prolife rally
Obamacare affects women, Mattie Duppler, of Americans for Tax Reform said at a Republican Studies Committee panel discussion on womens issues. For example, the Independent Mandate Tax takes 2.5% out of their income, Dupler pointed out.
Charmaine Yoest, of Americans United for Life, noted in the Capitol Hill symposium that two women die each month, a fact ignored, if not actively suppressed, by most health centers and the media. If women has a negative side effect from having an abortion, clinics encourage women to check into the hospital and explain that it is from other reasons. Thus, abortion clinics can avoid lawsuits. Nevertheless, more women are becoming more pro-life, Yoest noted.
Also at the conference:
Women dont need to be defined by what the left is saying, said Amber Barno of the Independent Womens Forum. U. S. Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Missouri, argued that there is a war on women by ungrateful women. Alex Smith of the College Republican National Committee said that if women ages 18-24 had voted, Romney would have been president.
If by doubting that women are somehow supernatural earthly beings and wouldn’t necessarily be any better than men at anything including being the leader of the free world, I am engaging in a “war” on women then what would it take for me to lose a war like that should there actually be one?
by the way, am I missing something or did Sarah Palin, whatever her shortcomings, achieve everything on her own while Hillary achieved nothing on her own? Yet who are we to look upon as an achiever?
