At the beginning of the 20th century, the Republican party of Theodore Roosevelt was among the leaders in fostering family planning. Republicans were among those leading the fight for women rights such as voting. But, that was a long, long time ago. Today, we inhabit the world of Republicans who do not believe in evolution, in scientific ideas such as global warming, and we know they sure as hell do not believe women have rights to control their bodies. Republicans are against GOVERNMENT telling women what they can or cannot do.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed into law a new bill from the Republican controlled state legislature. The new law bans use of public money for Planned Parenthood because that evil organization actually informs women about how to make decisons concerning their lives. And, God forbid, they use the word, “abortion.” Actually, most of Planned Parenthood activities deal with preventive health issues.
But, today, Neanderthals lead the Republican party.
