    People are actually saying such a thing?


    Really?


    Gawd no, there's no 'war on women' in America. Women are pretty much on top these days.

    thats not a war on women,again both sides try to kill eachother on an issue that can never gain a full majority,its a giant wedge issue to keep people hating and ignoring the economy and corruption from both sides.

    there is barely a struggle ( if you can even call it that) over contraception( beyond the dustup with Limbaugh, it's barely even an issue ... abortion, however.. yeah, there is a struggle over that.
    insofar as women are the only beings that can abort babies, i guess you can say there is an attack on them over that.. but it's not really a war on women... just a war on the choice to abort.

    You could, but that doesn't have any effect on the fact that there is, in fact, a patriarchal attack on women's health issues including abortion and female contraception coming from the right. And that attack could be considered a "war on women" which is the topic of the thread.

    Like I said, I wouldn't call it a war on women, but there are patriarchal attacks on women's reproductive rights. There's definitely a struggle over abortion as you said. However, there is also a definite attack on female contraception. All you have to do is listen to Rick Santorum to know that.

    What a small-minded comment.
