Pelosi Accuses GOP of Waging War on Women in Fundraising Pitch …(Republicans Won’t Give Free Birth Control)

Pelosi is up to her games again.

Former Speaker Pelosi accused Republicans of waging a war on women today in a campaign pitch because they won’t hand out free birth control.
The Hill reported:

In the Democrats’ latest fundraising bid, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday accused Republicans of waging a “war on women.”

The California Democrat is hoping the GOP’s high-profile opposition to President Obama’s birth-control mandate will alienate women and independent voters — and lure campaign cash to the Democrats’ coffers.

In an email blasted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), Pelosi urged a $3 donation “to send a clear message that we will not tolerate or stand by while Republicans wage war on women’s rights.”

“March 31st is the first quarterly Federal Election Commission (FEC) deadline of 2012 and the first since the Republicans’ unprecedented assault on women’s rights,” Pelosi said. “The national media and our opponents will use our grassroots fundraising totals to measure the strength of our opposition to the Republicans’ War on Women.”

Women’s healthcare issues have generated countless headlines since last month, when radio personality Rush Limbaugh called a female law student a “slut” and a “prostitute” for her support of Obama’s new contraception mandate. Mitt Romney has also entered the debate, calling for an end to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest reproductive health provider, which also offers abortion services.

Pelosi’s recent message is just the latest indication that Democrats don’t want voters to forget those episodes anytime soon.

    if we have equal rights, what is a woman’s right? i’ve never read anything about women rights in the constitution. this is a typical leftist divide and conquer strategy, an appeal to gender bigotry. vote for the women againist those evil men.

    How about the war on men! Or shall I say ‘white males’? Every time I turn on my TV and watch the ads men are demonized, shown as incompetent and immature or just plain mentally challenged. Young men are being social engineering and brainwashed into believing they are inferior to women.

    If any advertiser tried to put a minority or woman in that light they would be commercially tarred and feathered!

    I find Nancy Pelosi to be the cloyingly annoying human on earth.

    Amen, Tommy. In fact, think about “equal rights” when you watch the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament this weekend and ask “If they’re so equal, why aren’t they playing against the men?”

    You can thank the federal government and Title IX for putting inferior sports on television.
    Title IX is a federal law passed in 1972 that requires gender equity for boys and girls in every educational program that receives federal funding, including sports.

    So, women who are considered athletes but barely jump 10 inches off the floor and can go 5 minutes without scoring a basket, are put on national television. I call it Title IX punishment.

    It’s crap and so is Pelosi.


    Nothing but an elitist hypocrite. If she was so concerned about women’s “rights” and women, then why didn’t she stand up for Sarah Palin when the media was being “cruel and unusual” to her? Oh, that’s right, Nancy only opens her botox-inflated mouth to demean anyone who is not a communist democrat.

    If they want to keep this out in the news cycle, what else are they up to? They got hammered on this for the last week and now do it again?

    Smoke and mirrors. I’m calling BS- again

    What Do Republicans Believe?

    In 2004 the GOP establishment backed Arlen Specter, providing
    the 60th Senate vote for ObamaCare. Why are the bigwigs urging
    a similar strategy again?

    but guess that’s okay, because we can’t be dumbed down enough.. /s/

    Gee, and I always thought that crossing your legs was free birth control, what kind of backward heathen am I?

    /also, I think that Pelosi etc are really waging a war on a woman’s right to self sufficiency- if she wants birth control, she can buy it herself. They want women to be DEPENDENT on the government. Too bad she’s never figured out that the uber liberal women will never have children and therefore… the conservatives will out breed them in the long run.

    Whatever happened to I AM WOMAN – self-sufficient and all of that?
    Independence is having someone else take care of you now I guess.

    What’s with this? I am SICK and DISGUSTED hearing about this generation of selfish brats in women’s bodies.

    Contraceptives? Contraceptives? WHY do we have to LISTEN to this indulgent, rich lifestyle nonsense? What’s so frikkin’ important about THAT, when millions of children are dying from malnutrition? When millions of children ar aborted every year, when millions of children are stuffed into worthless schools where lazy-assed, pampered women think they need more money but won’t teach them skills – because the same LAZY WOMEN school employees never BOTHERED to get the skills in the first place to teach them. And it’s WOMEN. More than 95% of the education establishment.

    This is WAR ON CHILDREN. And it’s REAL DEATH, NOT HYSTERICAL self-serving selfish, HYPERBOLE.

    The lack of defense of children in America is PATHETIC. It’s a national disgrace, most acutely vicious in the Democrat Party, but pervasive in the culture – without the spirit of just war that it deserves, because children are dying … most by the hands of their own mothers and fathers.

    What a disgrace that 5,000 years of human accumulated achievement is WASTED on this narcissist, selfish DEAD END culture, too self-absorbed to want to make an effort to produce and train a next generation to carry on.

    If you want free birth control, just have every female wear a tshirt with Pelosi’s picture on it.

    Liberals/Progressives are not only delusional, but also paranoid. They believe their own bulls*it! Early last week, they blasted the same e-mail, but stated that they were short $16.5k’s. This week, they come up with ‘republicans measure our funds how strong our blah, blah, blag”!
    Which is it?

    I honestly believe, they use the ‘war on women’ issue to get more campaign cash for themselfs; after all their contribution has declined a lot and, what other way of using a phony issue.
    Also, planned parenthood, according to Nancy Pelosi, is a ‘reproductive healthcare for women; in honesty planned parenthood = slaughterhouse for unwanted and, inconvenient babies.

    Is GP broken? Or is it just me (*even though every other site loads fine.)

    I try to post a comment, I get a spinny thing for five minutes, and then maybe, if I’m lucky, my comment will be posted.
