In the wake of the Obama administration dictate that private insurance companies cover contraceptives and abortifacients, supporters have defined anyone who would oppose this mandate as waging a “war against women.” Obviously, no opponent of this policy is actually bombing, shooting, or stabbing women to death.
The same cannot be said for what the cultural Left favors – a war against babies. The latest front of “advanced” leftist medical ethics has emerged from the experts at Oxford University. They don’t just favor abortion, even partial-birth abortion. They favor “after-birth abortion.”
My comment: The left acts as though the right’s objection to this violation of the Constitution is a case of the right trying to BAN birth control (!!). As I reported earlier, women can get The Pill at Wal-Mart for $9/mo. The real issue is that FedGov cannot legally force anyone to dispense products they deem a violation of their constitutional rights.
Granted, misogyny is alive and well in this country– unlike racism, it is not illegal to bar women from leadership positions in churches though it is illegal to bar certain races, as far as I know. (And if not illegal, no church I know of would bar blacks from being pastors.) But this is practiced by the left at least as much as by the right, and it is the left who routinely uses vile, misogynistic rhetoric against conservative women. And they don’t apologize for it or admit their blatant double standard. Yes, let’s make war against misogyny, but not against babies.
