Bonus, they’ve got a useful idiot Republican to help them!

In an op-ed published on Wednesday, an Oklahoma Republican sharply criticizes his fellow party members for focusing on enacting unnecessary legislation to limit women’s access to abortion and contraception. “What happened to the Republican Party that I joined?” state Rep. Doug Cox (R) wonders, pointing out that the mounting pile of reproductive restrictions represents a government intrusion into women’s personal lives.

Cox, who is a practicing physician, writes that the GOP-led pushes to eliminate women’s health resources don’t work in the “real world,” as the U.S. continues to face high rates of unintended teen pregnancy. Instead of expanding access to contraception to help address that reality, his fellow Republicans are working to do the opposite — pushing to eliminate Medicaid coverage for Plan B and allow pharmacists to refuse to fill birth control prescriptions for any reason. The state lawmaker doesn’t believe those legislative priorities reflect the fundamental issues at the heart of the Republican Party:

Of course, progressives define “women’s health” as “the ability to get an abortion cheaply, preferably funded by the taxpayers.”

They’re making things up, using the fabrications and euphemisms to control the narrative.

And they are getting away with it.

since when is "you can have it, but you have to pay for it" a restriction? anywhere else it is good business and common sense. with abortion and contraception it is a sexist war on women.
