"Just relax and enjoy it," - Texass Republican Clayton WilliamsThe Oppressive Totalitarian Right-Wing Crypto-Fascist War on Women gets worse everyday. We are now moving into the phase were the Right-Wingers will drill down into every level of society and government to advance their agenda of control and subjugation of sex and women.
Pennsylvania Republican Governor Tom Corbett echoed Clayton Williams when asked about a mandatory Bob McDonnell Memorial Rape Wand Law he requested be passed for all Keystone State Sluts, "I don’t know how you make anybody watch. You just have to close your eyes."
Defeating the Roy Blunt Amendment didn't end the issue as multiple Republican controlled states moved to advance bills in their State Legislatures accomplishing the same goal.
Arizona, that seething cauldron of bigotry and evil, rushed forward a bill allowing Business owners to interrogate Women about their Sex lives.
Arizona House Bill 2625, authored by Majority Whip Debbie Lesko, R-Glendale, would permit employers to ask their employees for proof of medical prescription if they seek contraceptives for non-reproductive purposes, such as hormone control or acne treatment.Lesko had the gall to claim,
“I believe we live in America. We don’t live in the Soviet Union. So, government should not be telling the organizations or mom and pop employers to do something against their moral beliefs.”First, Represenative Lesko, go Transvaginal Ultrasound Yourself! Second, anytime a Crypto-Fascist Republican uses a phrase like "I believe we live in America..." they are about to pass an incredibly destructive law designed to aid the 1% in their goal of destroying and oppressing millions of Americans. Lastly, despicable Arizona Republicans just empowered your boss to interrogate you on your off-hours activities to make sure you aren't doing something they find objectionable, like having sexy sex.
Besides Arizona, according to Talking Points Memo, New Hampshire, Idaho and Georgia have taken up bills to expand exemptions for contraception coverage. Ohio, Missouri, New Hampshire, Idaho and Wyoming lawmakers are moving symbolic resolutions condemning the administration’s contraception coverage rule.
Remember how Right-Wingers "claimed" the denial of Birth Control was based on Religious Liberty?
Too bad for conservatives that Darrell Issa and the Republicans are so stupid they named their
Well, either it was a case of self-delusion or conservatives are shameless liars. Right-Wingers want to tell you what you can and can not do. Because they get off on controlling you.
From Carolyn Jones at the Texas Observer, comes the story of a woman forced to endure additional agony because a bunch of Right-Wing misoygnistic bureaucrats know that Rape Wands, a 24-hour waiting period and Doctors telling women lies about the after-effects of abortions will shame, degrade, humiliate and stop women from getting abortions.
Halfway through my pregnancy, I learned that my baby was ill. Profoundly so. My doctor gave us the news kindly, but still, my husband and I weren’t prepared. Just a few minutes earlier, we’d been smiling giddily at fellow expectant parents as we waited for the doctor to see us. In a sonography room smelling faintly of lemongrass, I’d just had gel rubbed on my stomach, just seen blots on the screen become tiny hands. For a brief, exultant moment, we’d seen our son—a brother for our 2-year-old girl.This entire Right-Wing Assault on Women is a kick to the Uterus. And they aren't going to stop.
Instead, before I’d even known I was pregnant, a molecular flaw had determined that our son’s brain, spine and legs wouldn’t develop correctly. If he were to make it to term—something our doctor couldn’t guarantee—he’d need a lifetime of medical care. From the moment he was born, my doctor told us, our son would suffer greatly.
Especially not when you have Faux News willing to stoop so low as to claim all any American woman needs is a simple $9-a-day Birth Control from Wal-Mart lie. Which every Right-Wing blog and full of shit conservative picks up and repeats ad nauseum on every site and news story they can.
Why is it a lie? Conservatives always talk in giant sweeping generalities because when their inhuman policies are applied to actual American people in real world situations they fall apart. Hardly any woman at all can simply use the cheap junk grade pharmaceutical crap that Wal-Mart or Target peddles. This isn't like picking up some generic aspirin. But, why the fuck do conservatives who are supposed to be about choice in the marketplace demanding women only get access to one type of birth control, anyway?
Because this entire issue is one of control and oppression. Because Conservative thought builds these grand edifices on a foundation of shit and lies. When you actually apply Right-Wing theories to human situations they crumble and people get hurt. But, Republicans don't care because they don't represent 99% of the American People. Republicans represent 1% and that 1% only cares about oppressing the 99% to make Money.
It's just gross what the Right-Wing is doing.
