Stephen Harper and the War on Women
In all the excitement over the orange wave yesterday, I forgot to mention a much darker story.
This warning from pro-choice groups about what might happen if Stephen Harper ever got a majority.
Women's rights may be at risk if Stephen Harper's Conservatives win a majority government, a coalition of pro-choice groups said Monday.
Not that I could ever forget how Stephen Harper went after women's rights from the moment he came to office. How he loves to diminish or humiliate them. And how he is going after that wonderfully human group Planned Parenthood.
The group said Canadians should look at the Conservatives' actions rather than Harper's reassurances the party wouldn't reopen the abortion debate, and pointed to comments last week by Conservative candidate Brad Trost, the incumbent in Saskatoon-Humboldt.
Trost said the government de-funded Planned Parenthood because of pressure from groups opposing abortion.
It makes my blood boil to see a group like that treated in such a manner, and to see women's rights given such little notice in this election campaign. And what frustrates me to no end is why the MSM has not made a link between the Con War on Women. And the one raging in the United States.
Congress just voted for a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.
Because if the MSM did make the link, they would expose its madness.
WEST: We need you to come in and lock shields, and strengthen up the men who are going to the fight for you. To let these other women know on the other side — these planned Parenthood women, the Code Pink women, and all of these women that have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness — to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient.
Its heart of darkness...
The real horror of the Con Regime. And why Canadians can't trust Harper not to ban abortion if he gets a majority. Because I wouldn't trust him as far as I can spit.
Oh well. If the MSM won't cover that story, or talk about the war on women, scrawl this one on a wall as well.
Stephen Harper and his Cons are filthy MISOGYNISTS.
They are dangerous, they are evil.
And they must be DEFEATED...
