At that bastion of reason and sanity America knows as the Value Voters Summit, FOX News puppet Ben Carson said that we have a problem in America. Like seemingly every Conservative, he believes that problem…is women. You see, women just don’t understand that, by legislating the uterus, we’re actually helping to save them from themselves! We’re protecting children! I mean…once they are out of the womb, they are on their own, but life is sacred (until birth)!
You see, women have been lied to by society. According to Carson, society has falsely told America’s women that:
” …there’s a war on them because that cute little baby inside of them, they may want to get rid of it and there are people that are keeping you from doing that. And women say, ‘No, no, they’re not doing that to me! No!’ And they get all riled up.”
Yes, women have every right to get “riled up,” here, Ben. They have a right to their bodies. While I am not exactly an abortion advocate, I can’t say that I feel the need or right to project my beliefs onto others, nor should you–or anyone. If a woman feels she needs or wants an abortion, it’s her body and her decision.
Ben continues, adding that the war on women does not exist because men give up their seats to pregnant women and “get out of (their) way.” See? No war on women! That clinches it! There haven’t been any repressive measures taken to make women’s right to choice any more difficult. No states have even tried to mandate invasive procedures, “counseling,” or anything else intended to shame or otherwise deter women from exercising their rights at all! Nope…moving on…*cough*
This Koch-sucker further claims that the war is not on women–after all, his side may have to take some responsibility if that were true–but instead, is on their babies. Babies…that can not defend themselves (perhaps we should ask Steve Stockman about arming them!)
