Abortion and Women's Rights

        A perceptive reader of this blog forwarded me an email that warned in bold print: "Republicans are waging an all-out war on women." The email was sent from Emily's List, which according to its website is "a community of progressive Americans dedicated to electing pro-choice Democratic women to every level of office."

       According to the email, Republicans are "viciously assaulting" women because they want to defund abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. Supporters are urged to sign a petition in opposition to the women-hating, rights-denying Republicans.

        This is yet another ploy by pro-abortion forces to convince women that there is an attack on their rights. They leave the impression that Planned Parenthood is a beacon of "freedom" and "liberty" for women, and that those who oppose government funding of such a perilous organization are somehow trying to suppress women and take away their rights. The woman who forwarded the email to me was smarter than that. I think other women are smarter than that, too!
