Lately it's come to my attention that many politicians(specifically Republican individuals) are rather uneducated on the anatomy and well-being of females. Loudmouths such as Richard Mourdock in his statement that rape is a "gift intended from god" and Todd Atkins belief that during legit rape the female body "shuts down" and prevents pregnancy from it, have caused me to laugh extensively. I started this form for postings of republican quotes that show lack of intelligence towards topics sensitive to women such as rape,abortion,contraception,etc. (note,I'm not a democrat. There are idiots from that party too.)
My ex-wife is an Ob-Gyn. She's very educated and very much a Republican.
There are some extremely intelligent and educated women in both parties, and trying to paint one group with a wide brush is intellectually dishonest and just plain mean.

I am pro-life. I am so adamant about seeing the number of abortions decrease that I am in favor of providing contraception to minors without parental consent. I could actually work side by side with a pro-choice person on this point. I may not agree with this person on anything...

liberalization and the broadening of women's reprodutive freedoms, especially in terms of a woman's right to choose and the issue of contraception? What makes some conservative men view a woman's greater reproductive freedom and/or choice is an affront to "morality" and "family...
