    Is it true that Mitt Romney would like to see all women barefoot and pregnant?

    There are claims that Mitt  Romney is attacking women's rights, that he sees the role of women as essentially homemakers who should not work outside the home and should not use contraceptive among other things.

    This sounds like a really good research project for you.  Look up what he has actually said and voted upon and I would like to see a hub from you on your findings.

    Romney certainly does not see women as "homemakers only".  One of his main concerns is with the economy, regarding which he's pointed out the sky-high percentage of women who've lost their jobs since Obama was elected. 

    If he wanted them all to stay home instead of go out to day jobs, he would hardly be concerned with that.

    Mitt Romney thinks that women who are raped and are impregnated as a result should have the child to make the best of an unfortunate situation.  His views on women's rights are archaic and unless a woman would like to be treated like a breeding animal owned by men, she should not support him or anyone who shares his opinions.

    Actually, it is the opposite.  More women have lost their jobs under Obama, along with countless others and will probably be forced into being barefoot and pregnant (and being a maid and slave to someone).  The republicans are making a case that the contraception issue is political, not a liberal concern for women's healthcare and concern for women.  I agree with that.  There have been more unnecessary hysterectomies performed by women doctors (who profess to be liberals) against their patients then ever in the history of medicine.  What woman can be deceived to believe the government cares about them?  You may not wish to believe it but there are two tiers of liberals:  the ones at the top who are the equivalent of the extremely self-righteous (but who vote democrat) and all the poorer liberal women who believe the liberal doctors won't judge.  They're wrong.  They exploit for profit.  Physicians have exploited women's health for decades and the use of contraception (the pill, or other hormone producing device) does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases, the symptoms of which are often missed for many years and often result in countless office visits.  In my opinion, the more universal care becomes, the less personal care women will receive.  Contraception paid for by the government not only encourages more casual unprotected sex and STDs but it also encourages women to become chronic patients of the universal healthcare system and to be deceived that the government cares for them when it does not.  The government knows it will make a lot of money if they encourage women to have more sex, and that is the only reason they do it.
