There is no war on women. There has never been a war on women.*
This seems to be a rather comprehensive compilation of the various anti-women actions that have been taken in the past year and a half (since 1/1/11) or so.
Let me be clear: I am pro choice but anti abortion. Some 14 years ago, I (we) came face to face with an unexpected pregnancy, after Kristen and I had previously discussed our views on abortion.
I am glad to report that, when confronted with the need to make a choice, both of us decided that abortion was not to be our decision. I would have supported her regardless of which way she chose to go, but I am truly glad that the choice was to bring another child into the world.
I am adamant that, as a man, I am involved with the choice of bringing a pregnancy to term. The woman, however, is committed. Kind of like a pig, a chicken, and breakfast: the chicken is involved (eggs), but the pig (bacon, anyone?) is committed.
I do not regret for a single instant the fact that we brought Katie to term.
Hateful comments will be deleted, but impassioned discussion will be allowed. It’s my blog, I can make the rules.
