    as a woman, I cannot tell you how many times I have heard a friend or relative say 'why do men think they get to decide this for us?'.  Yes, there are crazy women too, and we dislike them just as much as the men, but I do think the overall representation of women in Congress is pathetic and really bothers a lot of women (seeing as they make up half of the country).  So, the two issues do go hand in hand.

    Another point I might add is that men, while they may be pro-choice,  it is not their 'deciding issue' (except the nutty religious ones).  Many liberal and moderate men I know, while supporting the pro-choice position, do tend to view it as a bit of a side issue, and don't really get as angry about the issue as one of fundamental equality and public health.  I know some of you on here will disagree, but I can honestly say I have rarely had a man list 'pro-choice' as the top reason he supports the Democratic party.
