Remember all of the idiotic comments about rape during the past election campaign? You know, the ones about how women’s bodies have a way of preventing pregnancy from “legitimate” rape.
It turns out that those comments prevented a bunch of Teapublicans from being elected.
What’s more, it seems that all of the discussion about women’s reproductive rights has backfired on the old white men who want to control a woman’s womb. According to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, more people support Roe v. Wade than at any time since 1989. The poll shows that 7 in 10 people support a woman’s right to have an abortion in some or all circumstances!
Who knew that the best way to defeat intolerant, narrow-minded politicians is to simply let them talk?
Now let’s hope the stupid Teapublican statements about arming teachers have a similar effect on attitudes about gun safety.
