Margaret, religion isn’t the only thing that shouldn’t get into bed with politics…just ask Nancy Brinker. It certainly doesn’t erase all the good work and noble intentions that went into Komen, but Nancy should never have hired that idiot Republican, Karen Handel, in the first place. You didn’t need to call references to know what you were getting with that one for geeminy sakes. I hope those angry old men over at the GOP are paying attention. If women didn’t allow breast cancer to defund Planned Parenthood, we’re sure as hell not going to let John Boehner & Company get away with it.
If Planned Parenthood is so bad, how come millions of women choose them for healthcare? Who do you think a woman should consult with about her healthcare? A doctor or a politician? And who should make the decision about ending a pregnancy – the woman who realizes now is not the time to bring a child into the world or Rick Perry who humiliates and traps women into having an unwanted child and then denies those same women and children healthcare and a decent education after the delivery? I declare, let’s move on already. This war on women has done nothing but get in the way of good people who are just trying to do the best that they can with what life gives them.
Honestly, I am asking all those Republicans out there who read my little web page blog to once and for all stand up and answer me honestly: Regardless of whether you think abortion is right or wrong, do you really want your government taking away that choice from a woman? I’ll bet dollars to donuts that, other than a few misogynistic nut cases, most Americans really think this is a personal and private decision to be made between a woman, her family and her doctor. It’s not about being pro-life or pro-choice. It’s about being open-minded enough to realize that God’s answer to you might be different from the answer he gives to me. If Republicans want to win more elections, they need to take a lesson from the gays and just leave my vagina alone.
To the Republican Party, I say: You can’t have it both ways… unless you’re Mitt Romney. Either you want a smaller government or you don’t. So will that be one lump or two with your cup of tea? You bunch of asshats. I mean it. Really.
Helen, finally we completely agree on something. Let’s move on and get politics back to what it is supposed to be about – death, taxes and sex scandals.
