Re: The War on Women?

Under Patrick's post questioning the alleged War on Women, commenter Candace McCall remarks

stop pretending you don't know this is about abortion and contraceptive rights.

We'll take them one at a time.

#1, Abortion: there is nothing new this election on the issue. So this is not about abortion.

#2. There is, however, a new twist on contraception: the bizarre assertion that if contraception is not provided FREE, this constitutes a "War on Women".

Sorry, no, it does not. Not at all. Such a posture and a demand is merely an addition to the ever lengthening list of items - post secondary education, healthcare, gourmet (e.g., buying lobster with the EBT card) food, cell phones (incredibly), and just about anything money can buy with the cash part of welfare - that are somehow supposed to be provided for free by government or by eeeeevil insurance companies, both of whom are erroneously perceived to have an endless supply of money from which to pay for such righteous items.

Stop the insanity. Actually, don't just stop it, roll it back. The giving away of free stuff that, in actuality, costs money takes a toll that has been previewed by Greece's current straits. The fact that the United States is giving away different things than they did doesn't change the concept or the price.

I'm afraid transvaginal ultrasounds needed to qualify for an abortion are something new.

In how many states is that currently a requirement, Candace? And has Mitt Romney advocated for it on the national level?

I have seen some references to contraception and abortion as the leading health care issues for women today.


More important than heart disease and cancer, which account for around half of female mortality in the US?

I wonder what percentage of undecided female voters are actually swayed by this silly "war on women" mantra.

"War on Women" translated = Desperate Hussein Obama Distraction Syndrome. Hussein knows he has lost the white male vote. Witness the expediting of illegals into the country also. Hussein cannot run on his failed record therefore his propaganda machine manufactures crisis a la Nazi Germany. Hussein still has the lamestream robot media locked in. Let's see.... Romney is a killer, he hates women,hates people of color,hides money offshore, destroys companies by buying them and his wife is an awful person who hurts horses. Yes Hussein wants to run a clean campaign. Hope and Change did not work. Now it's on to Distract and Destroy.

ANTHONY, you left out that he deliberately kills women by giving them cancer.

It's amazing what a misogynist he is ...

The best part of the "War on Women" is having to sleep with the enemy.

The good conservative folks on the Right have "invented" way to many loony, phony wars to list here, including, but not limited to, The War on Christmas, The War on Guns, The War on Religion, The War on Masculinity, The War on Christians, The War on Femininity, The War on Catholics, The War on Conservative Women, The War on Easter, The War on Santa, even The War on The Easter Bunny.....LOL
My favorite totally phony war, The War on the Rich (Class Warfare)

There is NO War on Women..also IMHO

Everytime you post it's the War on well Spammy.... keep going to that clinic while you still can.

Has anyone with access to ISP's of posters checked to see whether this lying dirtbag Sammy is actually posting from Arizona?
Liedecker's house seems more likely.
