Women who vote for Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and other Republicans will get what they deserve and it isn't pretty. But this isn't my view, it is theirs. What do Republicans think women deserve? Here are a few examples.
1. Both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have said that if elected, they will get rid of Planned Parenthood. This would leave million of women in America without comprehensive preventative health services such as mammograms for cancer screening along with other sexual health and reproductive health care services.
2. Ryan voted against The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act designed to insure that women received the same pay as men for the same work.
3. Paul Ryan Opposes Abortion even in cases of rape and incest. Ryan has voted 59 times against a woman's right to choose and would rather let a woman die than allow her to have an abortion.
4. Paul Ryan is against the health care law that require insurance companies to cover birth control. Additionally, Ryan would criminalize some forms of birth control.
5. Can't have children naturally? Paul Ryan says that's too bad because he would outlaw in vitro fertilization.
6. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan wants to see Roe v. Wade overturned and Ryan supports penalties for doctors who perform abortions even in the case of rape.
Unfortunately, the deeper you get into the Republican Party the more vile the asssault and war on women become.
1. On the same day that Mitt romney released a television ad endorsing Richard Mourdock, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate declared that preganancy as a result of rape was a "gift from God".
2. The Republican governor of New Mexico requested that the state should require women seeking childcare assistance to prove that they were "forcibly raped".
3.Republican Todd Akins said in an interview that in cases of "legitimate rape" that a women does not become pregnant because women's bodies have the ability to "shut the whole thing down" and prevent pregnancy in cases of "legitimate rape." Sharon Barnes a local Republican committewoman defended Akins and said that if a woman becomes pregnant due to "legitimate rape", then "God has blessed this person with a life that should not be taken". Perhaps, she, too, thinks pregnancy by rape is a 'gift from God'.
4. Republican Steve King from Iowa is against birth control and said that "preventing babies from being born is not medicine-- that's not..that's not constructive to our culture and our civilization".
5. New Hampshire Governor Ovide Lamontagne claims he doesn't understand the concept of reproductive rights, "...Whatever those are. "
6. The Senate passed the Violence Against Women Act, but 31 Republican Senators voted against it. Only two Republicans supported the Violence Against women Act.
7. Republican Joe Walsh, Illinois showed complete disdain for disabled Iraq war veteran Tammy Duckworth when he said "What else has she done? Female, wounded Veteran...ehh."
The list of misogynistic attacks on women by conservatives in the Republican Party's seemingly supports violence against women. Surely a war on women is prolific behavior by Republican politicians and includes, among other abominations, comparing women to farm animals. The idea of women voting for conservative Republicans with attitudes about women that reeks of misogyny is nothing short of mind boggling. However, women should rest assured that if women vote to keep these kind of conservatives politicians in office, they have assurance that the Republican Party will see that "you people" get what you deserve.
