Calling all women
I’m not sure what it’s like in the rest of the country, but here in Colorado, every ad Obama and the Democrats are running, be it for the presidential race or for the House and Senate races, are some variation of the suggestion that the Republicans are going to take away your contraceptives and your right to choose. These ads are, for the most part, almost completely devoid of fact, and feature lots of elliptical insertions into the quotes being used.
Given that statute can’t overturn SCOTUS decisions, the only way Roe v Wade could be overturned is through a new Supreme Court decision. And I mentioned before, this is a Roberts court, and he’s already lost his moorings. But even then, all that does is turn decisions over to the states and the electorates of those states. And what I suspect is that would mean most states would keep abortion, with many adding conditions, taking into account all sort of contingencies.
As for this idea that the GOP is going to take away your contraceptives or the availability of women to receive health screenings, this is simply ludicrous. Believe it or not, there are plenty of GOP women, and not only that, but there are GOP men who are married or who have daughters or mothers or sisters or grand daughters — and it’s doubtful they’d work to make it more difficult for the women in their lives to receive health care specific to women.
So I ask you: is this likely to work? No mention of Obama’s own record. Just suggestions that Republicans hate the cooz and those who happen to own one.
Has our country really become that stupid and shallow? Not to mention, so willing to believe what are, when viewed logically, completely absurd assertions?
