    Well, it is the opposite since a ban on abortion would save the lives of.....females.....

    Patriarchal.

    That's the new talking point eh?


    A year ago, Gallup found more women calling themselves pro-choice than pro-life, by 50% to 43%, while men were more closely divided: 49% pro-choice, 46% pro-life. Now, because of heightened pro-life sentiment among both groups, women as well as men are more likely to be pro-life.

    Men and women have been evenly divided on the issue in previous years; however, this is the first time in nine years of Gallup Values surveys that significantly more men and women are pro-life than pro-choice.
    More Americans


    If it was all men, or mostly men, you might have a point. When it is virtually as many women as men, you have no legitimate reason to use "patriarchial" or pretend this is men attacking women.


    Bah.

    Nonsense.

    1. Birth control is never going to be banned.

    2. People call women sluts all the time. Again, not a war on women.

    3. Romney cannot close PP.

    4. Protesting is very American.

    There is an attack on the murder of innocent unborn children.

    a states rights to ban or allow something should be allowed,some people absolutely hate abortion and if five states banned it those people can move to those five states,i get tired of democrats opposing state rights unless it involves marijuana,can we argue how federal government say marijuana is illegal and states dont have the right to legalize,or will you accept to eaches own and allow states to make individual laws giving people a choice rather than a federal mandated way of life.

    Abortion has been an issue since abortion began. That isn't a new argument and it isn't designed to attack women, but to protect the "baby".
    I don't think it's designed to attack women.

    And I don't know any state that would ban contraception. That's just fear-mongering from the left.
    Banning abortion would put women into harms way. When you care more for a lump of cells than an actual living breathing person I wonder.
