Anonymous: you say there is a war on women... there is a war on abortion, not women in general. Don't over dramatize things. I agree that the shit is messed up and shouldn't be an issue. But saying things like that makes me want to not agree with you. Other then that I love your blog ha.
I didn’t coin the phrase, “War on Women”, but the truth is it’s not just a war on abortion. Contraception is not abortion…contraception is called Family Planning…so a woman can have children when SHE wants them, instead of when Rick Santorum says it’s okay…Contraception also regulates women’s monthly cycles, and many women take contraceptives to keep themselves from getting other illnesses…all that has nothing to do with Abortion, but all these services are at risk, if Contraception were ever outlawed.
There most definitely IS a War on Women’s Rights…yes, there is…in fact, ALL of our Citizens’ Rights are being assaulted, from Privacy to Voter Suppression. The War on Women is just one more stake in the heart of democracy.
Drama is sometimes necessary, to get your point across, when we are talking about life and death matters.
I’m proud if you think I over dramatized this important issue.

And that contraception is something a woman has to pay for…EVERY time she has sex!”
