Republican War on Women

t seems good conservative Republican women are not entirely on board with the ongoing Republican menfolk's obsession with abortion. Whether they're on board with the whole restricting-women's-rights thing or not, they cannot help but notice that Republican men truly suck at it:

“It is a white hot issue, the messenger has to be very skillful. But why is it always a man? It doesn’t make it any easier,” said former Rep. Mary Bono Mack, a pro-abortion rights moderate from California.“First and foremost, if this is the charge, they would be wise to have a woman leading the effort. But most women are focused on the economy and jobs and national security and a whole host of other issues that are right now on the forefront of people’s minds.”[…]

“Even if you agree with the issue, and you personally are pro-life, whenever these bills come up you basically live in fear your boss will say something stupid and offensive,” said one female staffer for a very conservative member of Congress.“We keep putting ourselves in this position and it never turns out well for us.”

Let me help you out with this: The reason Republican men are very, very bad about talking about The Womenfolk is because they do not give a damn about The Womenfolk. This tends to lead to situations where they are writing new health laws based on creative crayon-and-glitter reimaginings of how women's bodies function, since they could never quite be bothered to look those things up, and speeches in which they say things that sound profoundly sexist because, well, they are. I appreciate that you might consider your own political dedication to screwing poor people and giving money to rich people to be more important than whether or not Republican men openly think of you as something less than full citizens, but let's not be gullible about this. If it's always a man and they're always offensive or incompetent about it, take the hint.

Republican strategist Liz Mair says that Republicans might do better to tone down their abortion rhetoric and pair it with something that would actually, say, decrease abortions:

“I’d urge them to think strongly about whether there is companion legislation they might introduce to ensure greater access to actual contraception, such legislation optimally being free-market friendly, such as proposing lifting or easing regulations restricting the sale of the Pill without a prescription, or streamlining or simplifying the FDA approval process which could potentially help bring new and better contraceptives to market, potentially at much lower cost.”

And the Republicans wonder why women tend to vote Democratic.

I'm sure that Weiner and Spitzer fully support abortion on demand, so the gals will vote for them!
If you can't decide to kill your baby before it is 5 months old you are too stupid to be a parent and should consider adopting it to a decent couple.

How feeble does a troll have to be that they have to make a nonsensical comment to every post, even though they have absolutely no knowledge of the subject.
There are thousands of couples waiting to adopt in the US.
They are willing to adopt children of every race, background and also handicapped children.
Adoptive mothers are usually provided with medical and living expenses while "preggers!"

In 2008, approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the U.S.

Looks like those "thousands" are going to have to build bigger homes.....

Poor try, troll.

I would amend your statement. If you can't avoid an unwanted pregnancy in the first place, you are too stupid to be a parent.
Men need to use condoms, women need to say "no glove, no love".
There are exceptions for instances like rape, molestation, etc, but the vast majority of abortions are not because of rape, incest, or molestation. Rather, they are by choice. In fact, less than 1% of abortions are related to rape or incest.

Of course, it's the wingnut way. It's the 'divert' part of their 'divert, deflect, deny' directive. These people are none too bright -and are best at personal attacks, denying the facts and changing the topic. It's their 'hypocritic' oath.

Notice the nonsensical topic starter blasts from Dumbo. They try to claim a moral high ground, then change their names (usually adopting the name of smart poster - for extra special trickery!) and start the personal attacks. Unfortunately, fairly routine here on the Mpls forum.

George Zimmerman's 911 call. Martin was apparently minding his own business when Zimmerman first spotted him around 7 p.m., but Zimmerman told the dispatcher "this guy looks like he's up to no good." He later said on the call, "These assholes always get away" before muttering "f---ing punks."
There's evidence Zimmerman was following Martin. Trayvon was on the phone with a friend right before he died, and that friend testified that the teen asked "Why are you following me?" While it's not illegal to follow somebody, the friend's testimony shows Zimmerman was the aggressor, not Martin, prosecutors argue. "Is it really self-defense when you follow somebody?" lead prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda said. He also called Zimmerman a "wannabe cop."
Zimmerman allegedly lied about following the teen on foot. Zimmerman says he left his car because he went to check the name of the street where he spotted Martin. Prosecutors say he got out to follow the teen, and that he likely knew the street name. There were only three streets in the housing complex, where Zimmerman was head of the neighborhood watch, they pointed out. How could he not know the street name?
Prosecutors say Zimmerman lied about Marting grabbing his gun. Zimmerman says he shot Martin when the teen tried to grab the gun, but prosecutors say that's not possible. Martin couldn't have seen the gun in Zimmerman's waistband, in the dark, prosecutors say. And none of Martin's DNA was found on that gun.
Zimmerman can't back up the key part of his self-defense claim, prosecutors say. His claims that Martin slammed his head onto the pavement 25 times is pretty compelling. A person is justified in using deadly force if it's necessary to prevent "imminent death or great bodily harm." But prosecutor John Guy projected a picture of Zimmerman's head, which showed a few bloody spots but no big gashes. He pointed out that Zimmerman told a physician's assistant that he didn't even have a headache the next day. "Was he injured? Yes. Was he injured seriously? Not close, not close," Guy told the jury.

Just like Zimmerman had a right to carry & observe, but when he began affecting Trayvon, by HUNTING, he went too far.
