it used to be about issues…day care, health leave, health care, pay equity. Now, it’s about punishing women and dismantling their hard earned civil rights, and the right to BIRTH CONTROL. The Right has defined birth control as being abortion. Palin doesn’t believe that women or girls should have birth control. She believes every raped female who gets pregnant should have to carry the child to term. She believes that telling teenaged girls about condoms is morally wrong, because it prevents them from getting pregnant, and not getting pregnant is wrong if you have sex at all. sex is only for pro-creation. She believes that women who get pregnant responsibly are misinformed. She is against helping pregnant women in any way as well. She believes that even though women have a responsibility to get pregnant as much as they can, that the children they give birth to are better off with their fathers, since their mothers must be off busily passing laws preventing other women from not getting pregnant when they are practicing “abstinence”. I get it now!
