The Republican Party has declared war on women. Sad as it may be, it's actually true. All you have to do is look at the platform for the Republican National Convention. It really does hurt all women. Don't just sit there. Take action! Stand up for your body?
The Washington Post reports:
As Republican officials continue their attempts to persuade Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri to end his bid for the Senate over his comments about rape and abortion, GOP leaders adopted a party platform on Tuesday that calls for a constitutional amendment protecting “human life” but does not say whether exceptions should be allowed in cases of rape and incest.So while every Republican official is calling on Todd Akin not only to withdraw from the U.S. Senate race in Missouri and calling on him to skip the convention, they are acting as hypocrites. When push comes to shove, the platform agrees with Akin. It's just in there quietly and not as public as the fucking asshole was on KTVI this weekend.
According to a plank adopted by a 112-member Republican committee meeting here, an “unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life that cannot be infringed.” The platform also calls for legislation recognizing the rights of unborn children under the 14th Amendment.
If Republicans want to put their money where their mouths are, they would update their platform immediately and stop their war against women. There's no exceptions for victims of rape, incest, and yes, this also includes victims of sexual abuse. What if the mother's life is in danger? What happens then? Would the GOP rather she die giving birth?
Why is it that the GOP cares so much what women do with their body? Why are they not banning tattoo parlors? Those go against the Bible! It says so in Leviticus 19:28.
You shall not make cuts in your flesh for a person [who died]. You shall not etch a tattoo on yourselves.Yet there are so many athletes with tattoos that used #blessed on Twitter as a hashtag. How can you be religious and have a tattoo? It's not just wrong but immoral!
Everybody loves watching American football. Guess what? Football is an unclean sport and it says so right in Leviticus 11:8.
You shall not eat of their flesh, and you shall not touch their carcasses; they are unclean for you.Yet somehow football is becoming the national pastime over baseball.
These are strange times that we live in.
