The Devil in the G.O.P.
Will someone please tell me what is wrong with Republicans? Seriously!
It’s time that women everywhere began to stand up to these religious zealots who would take our freedoms away from us. The very idea of anyone trying to tell us we are sinning or committing a crime when we are making decisions regarding our own bodies and our own reproductive rights is beyond absurd! In my opinion it has become so serious that I almost feel like we have a class action lawsuit against the religious institutions that are behind it.
When someone like Paul Ryan, son of Satan himself, tries to introduce a ‘personhood bill’ that would define an ‘organism’ as a human being person the moment of so-called fertilization; with the sole intent to make having an abortion an act of murder, that is an unbelievable infringement on my God-given rights as a human being! And I am fed up to the high heavens with this!
We need to fight back and we need to fight back hard because these lunatics are dead serious! And if Romney and Ryan get elected they WILL overturn Roe vs. Wade and introduce all kinds of wacko religious bills that would send us women far, far back into the dark ages!
We simply cannot allow this to happen!
The very idea of any man trying to tell a woman what to do with her body or that she can’t have contraceptives is criminal in my opinion! For the G.O.P. to continue to support men like Todd Akin, who made the remark that “when a woman is raped her body has ways to shut that whole thing down” is unforgivable! What an idiot he is. These men know less than zero about women and how their bodies, or minds, work.
And now we have Richard Mourdock saying that a woman should be forced to bear the child of her rapist because it was “what God intended”. Give me a freaking break! Are these people actually running for positions that would allow them to create crazy, out of touch, laws we all would have to abide by? Where do these people come from anyway? Are they a throwback to the Pioneer days or to the 16th Century? I almost don’t know what to say! Seriously!
This is something that has me madder than a wet hornet. And that’s the Republican state Representative from Wisconsin, Roger Rivard, who made the comment recently that “Some girls rape easy.” See, this is what they are all inferring. That if we don’t want to have sex with them and they force it on us that we really did want it even when we didn’t. They are inferring that all women are liars when it comes to rape! This is just so wrong!
And furthermore, this has nothing whatsoever to do with our Government! Or Politics! We need to send a message and a very strong one that we absolutely will not vote for ANYONE who attempts to control our rights as a woman!
I don’t know about you, but I plan to deliver my message this November 6th when I vote for Barack Obama for President.
Enough is Enough! Rape is Rape! A woman’s body is her own! And no one else has the right to make these decisions for her!
For all the religious people who might read this and who want to control me I would like you to consider this. I do not tell you how to live or what religion to belong to or how to control your bodies. I do not think about or worry about how many children you have or if you want to terminate a pregnancy or what you do in the privacy of your own home. I do not tell you who to love and who you can be intimate with.
And I honestly believe that if there really is a God, that he looks down upon this planet and sheds tears at man’s inhumanity to man. Because I do not believe a loving God would ever do or want the things that are constantly accredited to him.
Please, women, wake up before it is too late! Stand up for our rights! Stand up for Planned Parenthood too! I can assure anyone that having no planned parenthood would be much more expensive than having no planned parenthood!
Let’s send a strong message to Republicans to get the Devil out of the G.O.P. and let’s all vote for Barack Obama for President on November 6th, 2012!
So, stand back boys! We are women! Hear us ROAR!

PS…Comments are welcome and encouraged!
It is difficult to even fathom that here in the new millennium (2012) women are still faced with the kind of oppression and discrimination they have fought for all their lives to overcome. And it is even more serious that the topic of women’s rights is dominating this election. What happened to separation of church and state? They continue to evoke God into this election debate. Why is this relevant? Because, this is their vehicle to controlling everything by appointing new justices to the Supreme Court. They say they will overturn Roe vs Wade and that is true but it is only the beginning! These new justices who will do whatever they (the GOP) want. Point in case: Citizen’s United
Who knows what else they are planning! We know for certain there is a War on Women’s right going on!
We can’t let them get away with this! We must do all we can to re-elect President Barack Obama! We must do all we can to take back the House of Representatives and to hang onto the Senate.
This is the only way our President can help us!
Thank you for reading!
I agree with the sentiment, but “when does life begin” is the wrong question. Chimpanzees, cats, fish, termites, trees, flowers, and fungus are all alive, as are eggs and sperm. Yet very few people think they all deserve the full protection of the law on the same footing as human beings (not even PETA advocates for the death penalty for multiple homicides of cockroaches!).
So, the real question is, at what point do embryos get the full protection under the law that we accord human beings? Whole science can provide evidence which is helpful in answering that question (e.g., viability), the answer is ultimately political. And on that ground, a woman’s right to control her own body trumps.
To have this debate on the basis of ‘when does life begin” only forces you to discuss the issue on the grounds chosen by the anti-abortion movement. Don’t fall into their trap.
Excellent point, Alan! Does the title of this still say “When does life begin?” I had changed that because I didn’t want to fall into the trap you just so beautifully articulated.
Not wishing this article to be so long as to bore the reader I have shortened it somewhat from it’s original draft, in which I did go into some of the same detail you did.
As I mentioned in my email to you. When life begins is basically irrelevant in this case. There is no form of life, insect (whatever) that even debates this question, other than the human species and you are right in that it is politically and religiously motivated.
This ideology on their part is contrary to what nature intends as far as I am concerned. It is simply not debatable. And it is high time we really stood up to the crazies who want to strip away a woman’s right to choose.
Thanks again for your comment! It means a lot to me that you took the time and hopefully others will read it and learn something in the process. 🙂
Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
