The Republican War on Hoo-Has

If you are among the 51% of Americans who have vaginas, the GOP plan in Virginia will be of interest to you.  Here is what the law recently passed by both Republican-controlled houses will do to you if you seek and abortion. For no medically sound purpose, a ultrasound probe will be inserted into your vagina and moved about to take pictures of your insides –  notwithstanding your doctor’s opinion that there is no valid reason for the procedure.  The not-so-subtle message from the GOP to every woman seeking an abortion is clear:   “Fuck you.”

Abortion isn’t the only battleground in the GOPs War of Hoo-Has.  They don’t like contraception, either. One would think that right-to-life Republicans would want to cut back on unwanted pregnancies.  Not so.  The “personhood amendments” moving forward in several states will outlaw IUDs and the morning after pill as methods for preventing pregnancy.  Republican heads exploded over the HHS ruling that health insurance for secular employees of religious institutions would cover birth control.  The ruling, of course, does not force birth control on anyone. If you don’t believe in birth control, nothing will force you to practice it.  Yet Republicans make the ridiculous accusation that President Obama is waging an assault on religious freedom.

The GOP wants to make darn sure that if you have sex you’ll get pregnant. It’ll serve you right for having sex.  Sex, and the squeamishness about sex that the ultra-conservatives suffer, is what this War on Hoo-Has is about.   Most people in America have hoo-has.  And the ones that have Willies like to have sex with them.  Amazingly, it doesn’t seemed to have dawned on the GOP leadership what a losing issue this is for them in an election year.

One comment on “

  1. I believe that if I were a member of that 51%, my response to the GOP(hate that term; nothing grand about them) would be, “Up Yours! You and your party are obviously under the mistaken impression that you get a say in what I do with my body.” I don’t understand why women continue to allow themselves to be treated as though they were a minority.

    Meanwhile, the Republicans seem to have seized the idea that all will be well, they’ll get everything they want and the future will unfold according to Gods will…if only they can pretend it’s 1960 again.
