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.
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.

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
