Don't Let The Republican Party KNOCK YOU UP. Support Contraception Rights.

 

Greetings,

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Catholic Bishops, and The Republican Party

----------------
Don't Let The Republican Party KNOCK YOU UP. Support Women's Contraception Rights.

Back in the good old days, a kinder, gentler Republican Party, seeking to punish women who dared to have sex for the pleasure of it, targeted only those who accidentally got pregnant -- by forcing them to bring their fetuses to term. Today, it seems, that scheme doesn't punish enough women for the perceived sexual sins committed by so many. In the GOP of the 21st century, the standard bearers aim to make sure you pay for your pleasure with a pregnancy and childbirth.

Stop These obscene, primitive attacks against Women and their Reproductive Rights. Back in the good old days, a kinder, gentler Republican Party, seeking to punish women who dared to have sex for the pleasure of it, targeted only those who accidentally got pregnant -- by forcing them to bring their fetuses to term.

Today, it seems, your scheme doesn't punish enough women for the perceived sexual sins committed by so many. In the GOP of the 21st century, the standard bearers aim to make sure you pay for your pleasure with a pregnancy and childbirth.

Everywhere you look, birth control is under attack, most notably by all of the candidates competing for the Republican presidential nomination. To advance the cause, the candidates are allied with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, which has cleverly framed its war against women as an issue of religious freedom -- a talking point that the candidates, especially frontrunner Mitt Romney and the second-place Newt Gingrich, have jumped on. This is a travesty for women, of who 98% use Contraception in their lifetime.

We object to this primitive tactics caused by an institutionalized 'FEAR OF WOMEN' centuries old by the catholic bishops and others. women deserve Reproductive Rights.
