Republican war on reproductive freedomDigby has it right on the current Republican drive not only against abortion but against birth control in Laying out The Case Against Birth Control Hullabaloo 02/27/2011:
This is what it's all about kids, whether anyone wants to admit it or not. The war on women (in this case being waged by a woman) is about the fear of female sexuality. This is powerful, primal stuff -- eve and apples and all that -- and it should be taken seriously. Just because it sounds patently absurd today doesn't mean that it can't be a serious "debate" tomorrow. Happens all the time.Tags: abortion, birth control, women's rights
