I got another of those infuriating Emails from the GOP today. So I'm replying to it
here on my blog.
Senator Rand Paul -Your utter lack of compassion for women and family issues infuriates intelligent women.You would gladly spread lies and propaganda instead of facing the historical facts of 'back-alley' abortions and the deaths and misery caused by illegal abortions instead of promoting FREE BIRTH CONTROL that would end the need for abortions. (And cost a lot less.)Like the rest of the GOP you would rather create divisions with propaganda instead of creating solutions that would benefit the State you represent.I detest the GOP War on Women. It will NOT gain any political power for anyone who perpetrates it - instead I expect to see many 1 term Senators and Representatives.If you expect to gain re-election I suggest you moderate your position on Women's Rights. More than half the US population is female - they vote more frequently than men and are more likely to vote Independent or for the best candidate.Kathleen Jordan - Voter and Democrat
This is an excerpt from the Office of Rand Paul - who sits next to Mitch McConnell. I'm ashamed to say these two blithering idiots represent the beautiful state of Kentucky where I make my home.
Neither one appears to comprehend the difficulties that women face every day - married or single and especially not the special needs of single parents of either gender. Both appear to be as racist as they are sexist and anti-family.
When I see them on TV, I cringe.
"Now the time to grovel before the Supreme Court is over.... (UNLESS they rule against Health Insurance Reform then the GOP will grovel nicely.)I know - getting my knickers in a twist over these things doesn't do me any good. But just as I had to file an FCC complaint against Rush Lumbaugh - I can't stop myself from firing back at GOP idiots.
Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion using the Constitution instead of amending it...
If you and other pro-life activists pour on enough pressure, pro-lifers can force politicians from both parties who were elected on pro-life platforms to make good on their promises and ultimately win passage of this bill.
But even if a Life at Conception Act doesn't pass immediately, the public attention will send another crew of radical abortionists down to defeat in the next election.
(Why stop there? Why not say that life begins with sperm? There is a bill that would make 'self-abuse' murder. I must say, it would be interesting to see it enforced since much of what Congress does is mental masturbation.)
The GOP (Grand Old Patriarchs) haven't a clue about what it means to be middle-class and female. I have nothing but compassion for a woman whose choice of birth control has failed and is facing that terrible choice. I've seen the tears and the agonizing that women go through when they face an un-expected pregnancy.
But not only is the GOP trying to make abortion illegal - they are also trying to make ALL birth-control illegal. Which makes NO SENSE at all. This planet is already staggering under the load of over-population and exploitation of resources.
This is the WORST time in the world for a woman to be forced to have a child she can't afford to take care of. All social services in the safety net have been gutted already. We KNOW what the GOP thinks of 'welfare mothers' even as they force more women onto welfare by their short-sighted refusal to pass economic stimulus packages that might just get women back in the workforce.
This is one huge '#Think-Fail' on the part of politicians.
Unfortunately - I don't think Senator Rand Paul is capable of anything else.
