Anyhoo, moving on to my post.
There has been a noticeable shift in the 2012 campaign for the support of abortion right activists. I was reading an article on the Politico about Emily's List, whose main mission in life, apparently, is to elect pro-abortion Democratic women. This seems to be the main focus of this group. They want women who support infanticide.
So, I decided to read further about this group and will share the article here.
EMILY’s List is helping to raise money for 37 women running for Congress — 11 in the Senate and 26 in the House. Much of the money is going to big name Senate candidates like Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts and Claire McCaskill in Missouri.
But lesser-known candidates are positioned to benefit, too, like Lois Frankel (D-Fla.), who is running for the seat held by deep-pocketed tea party favorite Rep. Allen West, and Ann McLane Kuster (D-N.H.), who’s challenging Republican Rep. Charlie Bass.
This cycle, pro-abortion rights groups are confident that these are winning issues for them, and they’re using recent controversies to their advantage.
Congressional Democrats have latched onto women’s issues and tried to paint the GOP as anti-woman. In the Senate, the No. 2 Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer plans to make a law on violence against women a wedge issue.
Other pro-abortion rights groups are including women’s health controversies in their fundraising pitches.
Planned Parenthood sent an email on International Women’s Day last week, blasting Rush Limbaugh for calling a Georgetown Law student a “slut” for her views on birth control and Texas Gov. Rick Perry for a state law that blocks funding to Planned Parenthood.
EMILY’s List has been sending emails to fire up their supporters and running ads that hammer Republicans’ recent maneuvers. The group ran an ad in February featuring remarks by GOP donor Foster Friess that women should put aspirin between their knees knees for contraception, and images of a House hearing on birth control that featured an all-male panel.
The Left seem to thrive on bashing, harassing, ridiculing and being as hateful as possible to any person or political personnel who do not agree with their masochistic tendencies in the murdering of the pre-born. This is not a war on women of any kind. Quite the contrary. The war is to protect the life of all babies who deserve a chance at life. Plus, this is just another attempt in distracting voters from the real issues at hand, a failing economy, high gas prices, unemployment, the terrible loss of life in Afghanistan, Israel and Syria.
This is what I am hearing. Women and men, because I will not exclude the men who are also involved, want American tax payers to pay for their contraceptives and abortions, when they are the ones who have behaved irresponsibly while engaging in their sexual activities. Yeah, I don't think so. I certainly do not want to see my $$ being spent on something that can be easily prevented.
I would write it a bit more but I am still feeling a bit under the weather with this nasty, horrid cough that just doesn't seem to go away. So, I may be taking a trip to the my PCP tomorrow. And guess what? That's coming out of my pocket, not the tax payers.
