Here is the story on the Repuke war on women and it is fierce! Be sure to check out Georgia's new law - that is the most disgusting and demaning law yet! The GOP continues to demean women and like that they support them - Akin, Ryan, etal. disgraceful!

I'm not sure the young women of today realize what older generations went thru in order to get the rights we have today - vote for these baboon butts and we'll fall right back to the 1800's....

Not my quote but I love it. Wish I knew who to attribute it to: "Women brought you into the world, and we can vote you OUT!"

I can't believe what I am reading! How can these laws be passed! Are going back in time? Here in Israel no law such as these could be passed! There would be such an uproar! We still have a problem here with equal pay but nothing like what's going on with the right wing in the US!

I guess the next generation of women will be having X kids and counting just in time for world hunger to kick in due to climate change

While I agree there is so much lost in the constant attacks and use of clever little name calling. Why not get on the issues and provoke discussion instead of hatred!

But that's just it, John - instead of dealing with real issues, the GOP have chosen to blast Obama, harass women, hate gays, and be completely uncooperative. Did Georgia GOP pass a bill to help jobless veterans? No, they passed a bill declaring abortion under any circumstance null and void. I would love to see something of substance from the GOP...good luck with that, huh?

Women are just property. They don't know what to think until told. Any woman who is raped asked for it. How can you ever take The Little Woman seriously? She doesn't have the brains for math or other serious subjects. Let her get back to her cooking and cleaning. She can do her cross stitch or knitting after dinner dishes are done. Her father or husband will tell her how to vote.

Settle down, Maggie, the GOP isn't doing anything of the sort. First of all, no woman is denied birth control. If a woman wants birth control she has access to it. Breathtaking.....

My sister carried nearly a full term baby and sadly it died in the 8th month. Her doctor told her that it would be best for her to carry the baby and go into labor as it would be better on her physically. So, the cock and bull story in your article is ludicrous. Another personal opinion piece.

Many stay at home moms in the 50's and 60's went to work by the millions....even when they didn't need the money to raise their families. Women's liberation was in full swing and it changd the overall dynamics of women staying at home to raise their families. Personally, I know several women who have more than four children and they are stay at home moms. It works for many mothers. However, some families require two incomes because of personal choices the husband and wife make.

The rest of the article is socialist driven that the government should be responsible for day care for working mothers and mothers. Day care centers are usually small businesses. The government has no business using the taxpayer dollars of those who have never had children to pay for the care of people who do.

Maggie, you lose all credibility when you say "repukes." The word is republican.

Chris Matthews is a cartoon. He is not highly respected by either republicans or democrats because he is a dud interviewer. Too emotional. Mr. Tingles....that is how people refer to him in the media arena. Hardly a person to praise on any level or place any importance on anything he says.
