REPUBLICAN WAR ON WOMEN, WHICH PALIN SUPPORTS:


Top 10 Shocking Attacks from the GOP’s War on Women

1) Republicans not only want to reduce women’s access to abortion care, they’re actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven’t yet. Shocker.

2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to “accuser.” But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain “victims.”

3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that could make it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)

4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids. 

5) In Congress, Republicans have a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life. 

6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids’ preschool program. Why? No need, they said. Women should really be home with the kids, not out working. 

7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.

8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.

9) Congress just voted for a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.

10) And if that wasn’t enough, Republicans are pushing to eliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can’t make this stuff up).

  1. Christopher Michael Ward says:

    That,s bechuse there are a lot of sick men who think they are smarter then woman. I stand next to women they are smarter, and sexier then men. My best friend is a women named judy. I am a man who listins well to woman if it was for woman i would not be very smart.
    THANKS GIRLFRIENDS.

  2. didnt you hear? its the war on women to keep them down so men can continue to run this country and f— it up more..

  3. It took until 1984 for rape to officially considered a war crime.

  4. Republicans are cutting headstart, saying the ederly and disabled have to share in cutbacks because of the deficit. Family Planning gone. But the funding for the armys nascar passed because they get alot of recruits at the races. What a joke, why are there recruiters at places that serve alcohol. People will sign almost anything when drunk (shouldn’t be allowed). How many young people wake up and say what the hell did I do. If a person really wants in the military they don’t go to a race to sign up.And they claim there serious about getting the deficit under control. Why don’t they pay for there own healthcare and give up there pensions. Sarah Palin loves to hear herself screech,and is a disgrace to all woman.

  5. I truly hope that you do get on the ballot. I hope you shake the whole country up. However, your level of attainment transcends leader to that of power. Your gift, your mandate lies in your ability to drive people into action and stand up to other powers. Much like the sun, the wind, the currents and gravity drive life on earth, your duty is to inspire and drive those who don’t matter forward. The Presidency would only diminish your authority and force.
