described them this way: "It is always the case that when you finally think right-wing fundamentalist anti-women politicians can not get any crazier... they do something to prove you wrong
But, they aren't just crazy; they are the enemies of all women -- Republican as well as Democratic.
"Meeting in Tampa, Fla., ahead of next week’s National Republican Convention, the (Republican) party’s platform committee on Tuesday adopted a policy statement calling for a ban on abortion without an exception for rape." Yet, "Only 6 percent of the Republican women in the (Missouri senate race) poll said they planned to vote for McCaskill."
As I wrote in this piece published in RH Reality Check, the question in these times is whether Republican women -- in Missouri and elsewhere -- will come to their senses and take into account what the 2012 presidential and congressional election is all about: "Will the Republican women voters of 2012 recognize this presidential election for what it really is for every American woman voter: a referendum on the very notion of what a woman can be in this day and age?"
I hope you'll read RH Reality Check
and share your thoughts with me.
