The War on Women
Two key signs that indicate a sharp surge in this agressive effort against women:
1. As an “unintended” result of the Medicaid prescription drug overhaul, the cost of birth control pills is rising – sometimes doubling and tripling. Unintended my vagina. No doubt, this is just the thing the former Republican congress would do to pander to their Christian fundie base.
2. Africa’s Ivory Coast, home to the largest cocoa producer, has suffered a drought – which in turn will affect the cocoa orchards and the market. (C’mon Senator Inhofe – even a prick like you can now agree – global warming is a serious threat!) Although the current cocoa crop is not affected, chocolate prices are soaring and a shortage is anticipated – just in time for the end of the Lent and Easter Sunday – perhaps the impending chocolate shortage is not just part of the War on Women, but a part of the War on Easter as well. Could it be that the Christian fundies and feminists have a cause in common?
Girls, we'd best stock up on birth control and chocolate!
