What Women Really Want In Their Vaginas

You may or may not have heard this wonderful (sarcasm) news, guys! Arizona Governor Jan Brewer–yes, she is a woman–has recently passed a bill to ban public funding of organizations, like Planned Parenthood, who perform “nonfederally qualified” abortions. This basically means, unless the mother’s health is at risk or the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, the government does not see any other reason to have an abortion as legit. So any hospital or organization that is willing to provide abortions for other reasons–like you know, to respect a woman’s choice–will no longer receive funding. This combined with all the recent birth control controversy may have you wondering: wtf is going on?

It’s a good thing Jan Brewer and the rest of the GOP know what women really want. We may say we want the right to choose–but we girls are too busy deciding which shade of lipstick will best attract a husband to make any real decisions! What we really want is the choice not to choose. That’s why Kate Beckinsale, Judy Greer, and Amy Savage have put together this lovely (hilarious) video Republicans, Get In My Vagina. Where do we need government? Right up in our hoo-has! I hope the GOP know how to get a tampon in–it can be a little tricky.

“Open up your legs and let the government in!” I’ll make the T-shirts.

 

Do you think the government has the right to tell women what to do with their bodies? How do you feel about abortion rights? Let us know in the comments!

    Abortion is a sensitive topic. I really don’t think anyone should be trying to force their beliefs onto anyone else. Stop trying to convince people to lean one way or another. if they agree, great. if not, that’s what makes an interesting conversation. This is like gay marriage- why do you care what men do with themselves???

      Yes. Its sad that no one has respect for babies. I think those who support abortion should put themselves in the baby’s shoes. They wouldn’t exist if their mom had aborted them.

    I am a republican and pro-life, even so I am tired of hearing politicians target planned parenthood, etc. through such invasive tactics. For now abortion is legal and since that probably won’t change anytime soon, they are trying to stop it by miles of red tape. I wish they would move on to the economy or international affairs, the actual important stuff.

    The ultra-conservatives need to take a step back. I may be waiting for marriage to have sex, but most young people aren’t. If they are having sex, they should at least do so responsibly without putting themselves at risk of STIs and pregnancy, which means using condoms and the pill. Planned Parenthood is a vital resource for women’s health and that means contraceptives, not just abortions. Putting proper contraception in the hands of women is so important, it prevents an unprepared pregnancy and from that same woman possibly resorting to an abortion.

    Now I am not saying that the government shouldn’t be making cuts to its public funding. Considering the national debt, they need to start cutting public funding. But this bill isn’t about cutting public funding, it’s about making the organization jump through so many hoops just to get the money, that it deters them from their main goal of aiding women’s health.

    Wow.

    Whilst it is shocking that conservatives want to control women’s bodies this way, I have to admit, gURL.com… You Americans are dang lucky to have the state pay for your abortions in the first place! In my country, having an abortion is a criminal offence, taken as seriously as a murder, regardless of reason. Women are often taken away at the border for attempting to go abroad, and rape victims receive no special treatment. Healthcare is not paid for by the state.

    If contraception is so readily available in the states, I think the only responsibility the state has is to make sure abortions are not crazily expensive, that they are available to those in dire circumstances for free or that extra reasons are acceptable.

    Women in other countries have abortions as a cheap alternative to contraception or to control how many daughters they have as opposed to sons – if abortion was this lax, would it not be easier to properly educate women beforehand?

    I just wish we weren’t criminalized for having abortions, or even speaking about them on media. It is a necessary healthcare function that is every woman’s choice, but maybe not the nation’s business.
