And then those women's issues are dismissed as merely abortion.
Democrats not only have protected women's rights regarding abortion and Planned Parenthood, but also against violence, equal pay for equal work and many others.
Next time you want to say that the Democrats are the same as the GOP, realize you are dismissing 50% of the population as completely irrelevant. How arrogant is that? While there are many things about the Democrats that annoy the hell out of me, they do defend women's rights. Not only women's right to control their own future, ie with abortion, they also demand equal pay for women and care about violence against women.
I don't like the hounding of people like Snowden, Manning, Assange, Greenwald, but the outcry regarding four men - yes thats right, only four men, was astounding, compared to the time men fight to defend women's civil liberties that effects 50% of the population. My male friends find rape appalling yet I didn't hear much complaint from them when GOP men were saying nonsense about 'legitimate rape'.
Next time you say Dems are the same as GOP remember you are making an incredibly sexist statement. Next time you say abortion is only a talking point, remember you are talking about destroying not only women's lives but potentially her baby's life too if she chooses to raise it, and again dismissing these poor women's lives as irrelevant.
