A Novel Gimmic InThe War On Women: Just Have Them Close Their Eyes

Share

Governor Tom Corbett (Toady, Pa.) has a novel idea for women he would like to have shamed because they don’t agree with him on how to run their own lives.  If they don’t like his law forcing them to have a medically unnecessary ultrasound, women should  just close their eyes during the shaming process.

QUESTION: Making them watch… does that go too far in your mind?

CORBETT: I’m not making anybody watch, OK. Because you just have to close your eyes.

The best action any woman or supporter of women’s rights could take in response to this intrusion by Corbett and the Pa. Republican party is to vote for a straight Democratic ticket in November. 

This is the Republican vision of small government and personal freedom.   They won’t keep your eyelids pried open  A Clockwork Orange style as they shame you for not conforming to their ideals. 

One final note on the Republican ideal for small government and personal freedom when it comes to the nations women-folk.  Arizona is trying to pass a law which makes women who take contraceptives that are covered by employee insurance prove that the use of those contraceptives is for medical reasons to their employer. 

If the woman is taking contraceptives to avoid a pregnancy the employer would be allowed to fire her for that reason. 

In the black is white world of the modern Republican, the bills sponsor Debbie Lesko (Big Sister, Az.) claims this bill protects the sacred 1st amendment rights… of EMPLOYERS! 

“I believe we live in America,  We don’t live in the Soviet Union. So, government should not be telling the organizations or mom-and-pop employers to do something against their moral beliefs.”

That’s right. Republicans want to make women report the most intimate details of  the doctor patient relationship to their boss, because we don’t live in the Soviet Union. Again, the most effective response to this particularly objectionable brand of small government Republicanism is for women, and those who support women’s rights, to vote a straight Democratic ticket this coming November.
