Quote:On Tuesday night, Glenn Beck tackled the so-called “War on Women” and the ongoing claims by Democrats that Republicans are restricting women’s rights. Rather than buying into these ideals, Beck posited another theory — that perhaps it’s the left that is going after females.

“I used to think all of that positioning was just about politics — but I’m actually starting to think there really is a War on Women — only it’s not being waged by the Republicans,” Beck proclaimed.

The host then went on to take aim at some comments that were recently made by the president’s deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter. On Monday, she made a statement about women and their general interest in presidential politics — one that Beck derided.

“We’ll continue doing what we have been doing, trying to get the president’s message out on the ground. Whether it’s in the suburban areas of Northern Virginia, or Denver, Ohio, to talk about what the president wants to do in the future,” Cutter proclaimed on NPR’s “The Diane Rehm Show. “That’s the other thing that you find most often with women. They’re not really concerned about what’s happened over the last four years, they really want to know what’s going to happen in the next four years.”

The notion that women aren‘t interested in what’s going on in the country (or what has gone on, rather) led Beck to chastise Cutter for her words, calling the notion she espoused “an insult…to women.”

“That’s right, women are just too disinterested or too feeble minded to analyze the past, to learn from it, and to make educated choices going forward based on those past experiences,” he sarcastically said. “Apparently women are only impulse buyers. They only make decisions in the now.”

Beck went on to say that, unlike Cutter, he knows that women are in-tune with what’s been happening in the nation. Rather than buying into the rhetoric, the host said that “they know the war on women is a bogus distraction from real issues that matter.”

“They know this, because they are the ones who are most often in the trenches and have felt the pain of the last four years probably more than anyone,” he continued. “They are the ones that are shuffling the kids to and from practice, getting them to daycare…taking them to a friend‘s house or going to the doctor’s office with them.”

From gas prices to education failures, Beck maintained that women are well aware of the challenges facing the nation as well as all of the events that have unfolded over the past four years. While discussing these issues, Beck also mentioned the morning after pill being offered in New York City public schools and Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s restrictions on formula feeding, among other purportedly troubling societal issues.

“Do they think moms aren’t concerned with a disturbing and growing pattern of a nanny state trying to steal all of their parental responsibilities?,” Beck asked. “What foods to eat. What subjects to learn. What foods to feed the baby.”

Beck noted that, all things considered, most women are certainly aware and paying attention to all that’s been unfolding in the U.S. The so-called War on Women is being waged by individuals who believe that females simply cannot think for themselves, the host contended.

“If this is the plan for the next four years — more of the same — women do care very much about the last four years,” Beck said.

Republicans have made it pretty clear they want to ban a woman's right to control her own body through their anti-abortion platform which is based on christian conservative religious beliefs via fanatics like Rick "The Inquisitor" Santorum (see Republican platform).

The bible is pretty clear (I don't want to rehash old and often posted materials) on its opinion of women as more property and second class citizens rather than people. Is the bible any more advanced than the koran in that regard?

It is our society that has changed regarding how women are treated in this country. Not the bible.

Rick Santorum asserts that states have the power ban birth control, and believed that the Supreme Court erred in Griswold v. Connecticut.

Paul Ryan partnered with Todd Akin on a bill that introduced us to their idea that in cases of rape, women can't get pregnant so there's no need to be concerned with them having abortions or emergency contraception.

The man in charge of the GOP platform, VA Gov. Bob McDonnell is the governor who mandated transvaginal ultrasound prior to abortion, regardless of the doctor's opinion regarding medical necessity.

Republican Arizona State Senator Nancy Barto plans to reintroduce a bill that would allow employers to fire women who take birth control pills for the purpose of preventing pregnancy.

For someone who values her right not to be a brood mare, I definitely find that the Republicans are trying to make my life harder.

Very well put. The Republicans and many members of this forum simply do not understand or refuse to acknowledge that their very real war on women actually exists.

And they wonder why 65% of women will probably vote for Obama!

This single issue will most likely get Obama re-elected given that women make up >50% of the electorate.

I can still remember this very well. It started in the late 60's and continued into the 70's. Women all over Holland stood up for their rights with such a big impact that the government was forced to comply.

In this picture the text written on their stomachs is "I own my body." Do a google search for "Dolle Mina" and you will find out what this was all about. The text most likely will show up in Dutch, so will have to translate.

If Republicans are waging a War on Women, then the Democrats are waging a War on the Unborn. And a War on Taxpayers. And a War on Gun Owners. And a War on Independence from Government Intrusion.

While I certainly do not agree with any mandate that would allow the hiring/firing of someone for choosing to use or not use birth control, the issue of abortion is extremely complex, and important enough to discuss rationally and not with a simple dismissive by leveling terms like 'brood mare' and whatnot because you think it supports your view.

But we are in a soundbite culture, so I suspect that's to be expected.

Do you agree or disagree with Rick Santorum's position that the states should have the power to ban birth control pills?

Do you agree or disagree with the position of Bob McDonnell that the state should force doctors to perform transvaginal ultrasounds when patients request a procedure for which such an ultrasound is not medically necessary?

Do you agree or disagree that prescription birth control should be included in insurance plans that offer prescription drug coverage?

The term 'brood mare' is meant to be indicative of a woman who has no practical choice regarding reproduction. Being unable to prevent pregnancy severely limits woman's options in life, and it's quite different from choosing to get pregnant at what a woman determines is a good time for her.

No.

I do not support any kind of intrusive/insertive ultrasound, but I do feel that women considering an abortion should be given ALL the facts regarding what it is that is inside her even if that means providing the knowledge that the 'blob' insider her is an actual human life, and not just some random coagulation of cells.

Do you agree or disagree that prescription birth control should be included in insurance plans that offer prescription drug coverage?

I support the exemption on religious grounds, especially in the instance of religious organizations/schools/churches who do not wish to pay for birth control because they oppose it, and I also would like to see a provision where companies can distinguish between actual birth control prevention and abortive medicine/procedures so they can offer one or another.

Other replies in red above, beneath the pertinent questions.

I do not oppose the prevention of a pregnancy. I do oppose abortion as a means of ending a pregnancy.

I also object to the idea that people like myself who oppose abortion immediately consider women to be 'brood mares' or the like, simply because we find abortion reprehensible and unjust. I have yet to meet anyone who opposes abortion to actually see women as nothing more than walking uterus that is only waiting for the proper sperm to fulfill her one and only duty.

Those types of terms are used specifically by the pro choice crowd for the one and only purpose of trying to demean the argument, and turn it into a purely emotional discussion rather than even attempting to discus the issue rationally.
