The only things done to help women have been by President Obama and the Democrats. Every bill, passed law, bill blocking, and law repeal, which has harmed women has been by the Republicans.

Since the election another Republican has stated we cannot get pregnant from rape. Can you believe that bull?

How about this new one .....

A New Mexico Republican bill would criminalize abortions after rape ..... get this one ..... as 'Tampering With Evidence'.

It would legally require rape victims to carry their pregnancies to term in order to use the fetus as evidence for a rape trial.

The bill would add this as a new section to the law covering tampering with evidence .....

"Tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion, of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime."

Notice also there is 'no' exclusion for children impregnated by rape or incest, or for pregnancies which could for health reasons endanger the life of the rape victim.

Forgot to mention ..... in the military we can now serve in combat roles. Women have already been fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan for years, and died over there, but now we can officially do it and get credit for it.

Another step up the ladder to real equality and a plus for President Obama.

Well then by all means head down to the recruiting station and sign up. Obama needs more women on the front lines willing to get themselves blown up. Might as well b/c with unemployment like it is the military might be the only jobs left...

That's over a million babies per year. You can turn your face away and say it's my body blablabla but a lot of us flat out call is genocide. I go further and call it social engineering. That's more death than all the wars fought and the ppl dying in them, ww1, ww2, vietnam, korean war and you can even throw in THE HOLOCOST.
The majority of people agree that rape, incest and harm to the Mother are the ONLY reasons they can accept abortion, and you damn well know it, but 56 million plus is nothing short of genocide. Here we sit in the greatest country in the world and we turn our faces from the most innocent of us. You go ahead and ignore those facts if you want, just don't expect the rest of us to swallow your "he did it to us more than he did it" bullsht. If you had a full box of crayons, you'd know Republicans were the reason Rvs W got passed *D*U*H*
So you move along and keep proud.
Our Government is not a theocracy. If you do not believe in abortion, that's fine ..... don't have one. But you cannot use our Government to force anyone against their will to have children. The Government particularly should 'never' have that type authority over it's citizens.

No, Roe versus Wade occurred because a woman sued in Federal Court for the right. The same as back when a lot of states banned the selling of birth control pills to single women (that went on until the 1970's in some states). Women sued in Federal court and had the bans struck down. It was women fighting for our own rights, the same as we are now having once again to fight against the extremist-religious movement which has deeply infiltrated the Republican Party.

Btw, do you know what a lot of out-of-date religious beliefs really do in these type situations? What the result can be?

In Mississippi, a bible-belt state, they enacted laws which reduced abortion clinics down to only one. It being a bible-belt state they have a ban on full sex education in public schools. They can only teach abstinence-only or abstinence-plus sex ed.

Guess what is the result? The highly-religious God-fearing state of Mississippi has the highest rate of teen pregnancy in the nation. There's more teen pregnancies than in New York, California, and all of those more populated immoral commie Liberal states.

Liberals like Jenny don't want the government telling us what to do, but then they turn around and force us to buy government insurance and try to take away our guns or limit what we buy. In fact, they're trying to tell us what we can eat/drink (no soda's over 16oz in New York). School kids are now being fed crap they don't want and many schools won't let parents send lunch to school for their children.

& what did republicans blocking and repealing fair pay laws have to do with abortion? Or the republicans trying to stop insurance companies from covering the pill? Or in cutting funding to rape crisis centers? Or stopping insurance companies from charging women more than men for the same exact policies (not talking about healthcare reform, but this happened at state levels)? There's more.

Another day, another white man apparently heading for a promotion in President Obama’s inner circle.
This time it’s Denis McDonough, the current deputy national security adviser who is expected to be chosen by Obama as the new White House chief of staff.
The move is likely to renew concerns about a lack of diversity at the top levels of the administration. Earlier, Obama drew criticism from feminists and liberals when he named four other white men to senior jobs: Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts as secretary of state, former Sen. Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense, counterterrorism adviser John Brennan as director of central intelligence, and current White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew as secretary of the treasury.

Obama should get in touch with Mitt Romney. I hear he has binders full of women he could hire.

No he didn't win by a "blow out". He won by 3%, and won by fewer votes than Bush did in 2004 (when liberals were talking about Bush's razor thin win).

Nobody is saying Obama didn't win but the country is still a 50-50 nation. Your story of the person in line with a RBT cards proves nothing (anyone can make up stories on Topix).

A new Gallup poll found that Obama is the most divisive and polarizing President in over 60 years!

Another poll shows that only 42% give Obama passing marks for job creation. And 62% favor smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes.

Your BS about Southern states, etc means nothing. Most of the big liberal states (that you probably love) are having to cut workers and services. Many like New York, California, Ill, etc. are near bankruptcy. At least Tennessee can balance it's budget and attracts more new industry and jobs than those wonderful "blue states".

Please tell where those jobs are? What was said about southern states isn't bs, it's facts backed up by your beloved polls rifleman! It was a blowout by electoral votes, and that's what counts.

A little education about the lady who sued and started Roe v Wade.

Abortion proponents who fight to preserve the Roe v. Wade decision rarely acknowledge that the Jane Roe of the lawsuit—Norma McCorvey—is today a fierce opponent of abortion, even to the point of filing a class action suit in 2003 to have Roe v. Wade overturned. In this suit, "Among her 5,437 pages of evidence were affidavits from more than 1,000 women who testified that having an abortion had devastating emotional, physical, and psychological effects on them. Today McCorvey is passionately and publicly committed to undoing the damage she did in her earlier years and ending legalized abortion in America" The Marketing of Evil, Kupelian, p. 210).

Also rarely mentioned is the fact that McCorvey did not seek out an abortion at the start of the legal process that led to Roe v. Wade. In the course of arranging an adoption for her unborn child, her attorney put her in touch with two attorneys who wanted to find a "test case" to establish abortion rights. McCorvey was not some young crusader for reproductive rights; she was a frightened young woman who believed what her lawyers told her. Thankfully, because the legal process took so long, the child she was carrying was born—not aborted—and was put up for adoption. But her lawsuit led to the deaths of millions of other children—a fact she now regrets.

To put it mildly she was used and duped by liberal feminists who wanted a test case for abortion laws.

Even most liberal judges and professors today admit Roe was one of the most poorly written and reasoned decisions ever. Many judges who favored abortion admitted that the decision was poorly thought out and written. I'm providing a link that contains much of that thinking (among abortion supporters).

Many Americans say they favor abortion but when you dig deeper they oppose abortion after the first or second tri-mester. But the pollsters who ask about abort never break it down that way. They just put the question to those surveyed as do you favor or not favor it?

Why Does Obama's White House Pay Women Less?
Posted 10/18/2012 06:29 PM ET

Equity: The president touts equal pay for equal work but hasn't practiced what he preaches with the women he has employed — including a well-known staffer who complained of a hostile work environment. It remains a mystery as to why equal pay for women was one of the questions elected by unofficial Team Obama debate coach Candy Crowley of CNN during the second presidential debate. But it let President Obama launch into breathtaking hypocrisy regarding the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Lilly Ledbetter, which in Crowley's view ranked right up there with BenghaziGate as a pivotal issue, woke up one morning complaining that her male counterparts were getting paid more money for the same work and decided to sue for redress of this perceived grievance. After she was told she had missed the statutory deadline, her case made it to the Supreme Court, which said too bad, but you missed the deadline. So Congress passed the Fair Pay Act, which does more for lawyers than it does for women, merely extending the statute of limitations for pay-discrimination lawsuits from 180 days from the violation to 180 days after the last paycheck issued that was affected by that discrimination. When Katherine Fenton asked Obama what he intended to do about "women making only 72% of what their male counterparts earn," the question was based on a false premise and a false statistic — one calculated by Diana Furchtgott-Roth, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, by comparing all male with all female workers, regardless of experience, productivity, number of hours put in or length of service. When you factor these things in, Furchtgott-Roth says, women make about 95 cents to a man's dollar, which may explain why, since the Ledbetter Act was passed in January 2009, only 35 women have filed lawsuits under the new law.
The question, and Obama's response, were calculated to highlight the Democratic campaign theme that Republicans are waging a war on women because they don't think that having taxpayers provide free contraceptives to Georgetown coeds will help us beat China. Never mind that by the questioner's standards, the White House is a hotbed of sexist discrimination.
According to a report published by the Washington Free Beacon in April, the 2011 annual report on White House staffers revealed that the median annual salary for female White House employees was 18% less than male employees —$60,000 compared with $71,000. During the 2008 campaign, columnist Deroy Murdock wrote that female staffers in Obama's U.S. Senate office were also shortchanged. "Obama's average male employee earned $54,397," Murdock inferred from Senate salary records. But the future president's "30 female employees (earned)$45,152, on average." Defining what constitutes "equal work" is subjective, and part of the difference above may be explained by the fact that only one of Sen. Obama's top five staffers was a woman and only seven among his top 20.
Which raises another question for the champion of women's rights. Journalist Ron Suskind, author of "Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington and the Education of a President," has a recorded interview with former White House communications director and Mao Tse-tung fan Anita Dunn in which she complained Obama's White House was a hostile work environment for women. "I remember once I told Valerie that, I said if it weren't for the president, this place would be in court for a hostile workplace," Dunn told Suskind. "Because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women."
While President Obama champions women's rights to which Republicans are supposedly hostile, Lilly Ledbetter herself might have found his White House an unfair and hostile work environment where the boss needs to practice what he preaches.
