Since I didn't use the phrase "war on women" in my post, I've got an inclination you know what I'm talking about.
Republicans have a huge problem with human sexuality. They don't appear to like it much, whether it's teaching sex ed or making contraception easy to get. They don't like the HPV vaccine given to teen age girls (because obviously it turns them into insatiable sex maniacs).
With abortion, they've been opposed to even exceptions in the case of rape, including Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin's quote: âoeIt seems to be, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, itâ(TM)s really rare. If itâ(TM)s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.â
I think that quote kind of neatly describes the fairly ridiculous attitude toward's women's sexual health.
Look, I get it. If somebody is a religious person and they don't want to have an abortion, that's great, don't have one. You don't want to use contraception for the same reasons -- be my guest, don't use it. But where do you get off trying to restrict access to everyone?
