    It is a myth to say that all kinds of women died from iilegal abortions prior to Roe V Wade...Many more have died since then, around 42,000,000 to be exact.........

    Pro-Choice and Pro-Life are propaganda terms of the abortion argument.
    Right. Liberals are not pro choice when it comes to guns, participation in Social Security or Obamacare, nor are they pro choice when it comes to education, or seat belts, or smoking in restaurants. Choice is only important when it comes to aborting the consequences of their sexual behavior.

    I haven't read the thread yet, but for myself I say "yes". I say that because state and federal legislators continue to pick away at women's health issues and right to choose by legislating their health care and forcing unwilling women to undergo invasive, unnecessary procedures based on their moral preferences. This certainly isn't being done for men's health issues.

    I say "yes" because when a woman asks that birth control and hormonal treatments be included in health insurance coverage, this is twisted and spun as "women wanting the taxpayers to pay for them to have sex..." And party soldiers across the nation nod in fervent agreement, without even mentioning that it's okay for men's hormonal and sexual dysfunction treatments are covered by insurance.

    I say "yes", because when this same woman is "exposed" as having been active in helping battered women and fighting human traficking, this is twisted and spun as "she is a liberal activist! She's a public person! It's okay to call her a slut and a prostitute!" And party soldiers across the nation nod in fervent agreement, without noting that it would be highly unacceptable to call a male "activist" working with battered women and fighting human traficking a man-whore.

    I say "yes", because as long as women's health issues and medical privacy rights are being singled out for legislative invasion, there is indeed a "war on women" being waged, right now, right here, in the good old constitutionally-protected-unless-female US of A.

    Now I shall read the thread and find out all the reasons why I am wrong.

    Not women, of course not. Female. Well, 50% of them anyway.

    I'm pretty liberal when it comes to speech. I don't LIKE hearing most women called sluts, but I'm not going to demand women sue or demand the man be fired simply because of what he said.
    I get it and you seem not to. When a woman has to defend her rights under constant attack like abortion. Like birth control that has reared it's head into the debate since Palin decide to make an issue of abstinence only. It doesn't matter if these tings will ever go away or not. It is the constant assault. Abortion was re-legalized in the US in 1973. Here it is 2012 and the argument still rages.
    I have never said that women are under attack on all fronts. We are under attack in the area of reproductive rights.
    I don't think every women needs to sue someone who calls her a slut. But when people just pass it off like popcorn in a theater it's vile. It used to be like the N word which my father used regularly. We don't need to be subjected to that.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    While I would not call it that, there are an amazing number of things which impinge specifically on women going on lately.

    My daughter had an abortion at a planned parenthood murder mill 11 years ago. She has had to live with that since. She is now pro life. Jane Roe is also pro life now. You do know who she is right Roe v Wade
