Democrats like to pretend they are the party of ‘choice’ for women but the only choice Democrats believe women care about is late-term abortion.
Let’s face reality here; no one is trying to make abortion illegal. The majority of women, including those who are pro-choice, do not believe in abortion on demand for any old reason up until the day before a woman is due to give birth. Democrats do. And yes this can also be called infanticide.
When it comes to the things that women truly want choices in, Democrats fail every single time. The majority of women in this country will never even think about a late-term abortion but they will think about the following that affect their lives on a regular basis:
Democrats are ANTI-choice when it comes to women protecting ourselves. They are absolutely against the 2nd Amendment and if they had it their way the only people who would have firearms would be the government and criminals. Democrats constantly enable criminals while expecting women to hang out on the phone with 911, helpless, unable to protect ourselves and our families.
Democrats are ANTI-choice when it comes to women choosing whether or not to be unionized. In Right-to-Work states, women have the choice whether or not to choose to be a member of a union or not. If they do not choose to associate with a union, they are not forced to pay union master fees. Women truly have a choice in those states. Not in New Hampshire of course, thanks to Democrats.
Democrats are ANTI-choice when it comes to women choosing where their children are educated. Democrats want all children to be shoved through the public school systems. (Not THEIR children of course, they can afford to send their children to elite private schools) Democrats are adamantly against school vouchers which allow poor children to attend better schools and get a better education.
Democrats are ANTI-choice when it comes to healthcare. Yes that’s correct, healthcare. Democrats not only shoved Obamacare down our throats but it severely limited our choices and access in New Hampshire. Thousands of women lost their health insurance plans; doctors and hospitals they could use. Thousands of women saw health premiums rise; deductibles rise; Out-of-Pocket maximums rise all while LOSING services. Women also have to pay far more out-of-pocket for healthcare services than they did before Obamacare.
Democrats are ANTI-choice when it comes to free speech. Pro-life organizations (many who are women) shouldn’t be allowed to hold vigils outside abortion clinics but unions can still protest outside of places – often spitting, threatening and cursing at the people they are protesting, including women.
Democrats are ANTI-choice when it comes to their selective backing of religions. They seems to believe it’s okay to teach Muslim religion in public schools (a religion that has oppressed women for thousands of years) yet they don’t want anything Christian even mentioned in public schools.
Democrats are THE most ANTI-choice party that has ever existed in this country for women, yet they’d have women believe they are the end-all-be-all when it comes to women’s rights. Fat chance.
More women want choices when it comes to the things above than will ever care about late-term abortions. More women are affected by Democrats’ ANTI-choice legislation and votes than will ever be affected by anything else they could push as ‘choice.’
Women need to wake up before they vote in more ANTI-choice Democrats. Your future, your children’s future and the future of this country and your CHOICES depend upon it.
