Heidi Li just blew my mind:
“If President Obama and the Democratic Congress were to horse-trade away men’s rights to control their health care, I am confident that there would be hue and cry. But this is because the baseline assumption in our society is that men are entitled to control their own bodies. No man of any color is the property of the state, nor may the state dole out its aid starting from the presumption that the state has more say so over men’s bodies then men themselves do.
But since President Obama has decreed “there’s not a minute to spare” before he gets the stimulus package he is willing to settle for, apparently he has not a minute to spare to fight for women’s rights to control and care for their bodies.”
Emphasis mine; ability to rearrange brain cells Heidi’s.
Holy Smokes. So, obama’s decision to cave on ONLY ONE PIECE of his TRILLION DOLLAR BOONDOGGLE just HAPPENS to be the one that would be an enormous relief to millions of poor and working class women who worry about unwanted pregnancies and taking care of their families.
what. a. JACKass.
