Well, I wouldn’t have put it that way, but I’m not the one spinning abortion and rape into a faux “war on women” either. Yes, faux. There was never a war on women.
From the article:
According to groups like anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List Mitt Romney should have spent more time debating President Obama on abortion. In a statement released Wednesday Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said Romney took a weak position on abortion that set the tone for Senate candidates and caused those losses as well. She said Romney was “wobbly” on social issues and called on conservatives to redouble their focus on abortion.
“Abortion meant rape in the minds of many voters because the debate was not fully engaged,” she said. Dannenfelser said Republicans seemed to have called “a de facto truce on social issues” while Democrats “launched a war.” Seriously.
Seriously. Pro-aborts made up a phony war on women, striking fear in women who actually believed that Mitt Romney would take away their birth control, and overturn Roe v Wade. How do you defend against a faux war? You can’t. When everything thing you say is twisted and exaggerated, it’s best to avoid that topic.
Mitt Romney has a history of flipping on issues, depending on where he’s running. In Massachusetts, he was pro-choice, because he had to be to get elected.
To this day, I don’t know what his personal position is on abortion, and neither do millions of other people, hence why they didn’t vote for him, or why they didn’t vote at all. We put up the wrong candidate, not because I think Mitt Romney is a bad person, he’s not. But because of his history of flipping, people couldn’t really trust him.
One last snippet from the Care 2 article:
Social conservatives claim the answer to their electoral woes is to become more conservative, and that the answer to their shedding of women voters to become more anti-woman.
I would disagree that we need to become more conservative. We’re conservative enough. As for the shedding of women voters, as much as I hate to say it, the loss of women voters only shows how
vulnerable gullible women can be. And you wonder why they didn’t allow us to vote back in the olden days? This is why ladies!
Women are smarter than this, but they need to be educated on conservatism. They need to know that they need not fear conservatives. Conservative women, are women too. We fight the same battles they do, we just don’t use our unborn children as pawns in the battle to attain truly equal rights.
