    "wants to make sure abortion is accessible and cheap for his daughters.”

    So his daughters are going to be slutty and his daughters are going to need frequent abortions so they will have to be cheap

    To many conservatives believe women are sluts if they enjoy sex, maybe because the conservatives have to pay for the sex that they get.  

    They single out the perceived sex for pay professionals as the one free enterprise that does not get federal assistance.  Oil, all the money they want.  Sluts, no subsidized birth control for you!

    There us also the question of procreation. I wonder if they only way they can hope to have kids is by rape.  If we have no rape exception for abortions, then they have hope for kids.

      Sorry, but you're the one who said that.  Are you actually saying that abortions have to be expensive, because that will make sure that they're infrequent?  If abortions are cheap, women will get them all the time like fast food?

      I thought abortions were supposed to be cheap and accessible so that poor women could afford them, not so that well to do women would get them all the time.

      So how cheap is too cheap for an abortion?  Maybe there should be an abortion tax like a cigarette tax to discourage use?  And then the abortion tax will subsidize abortions for the poor?

      Brilliant!  We'll make abortions super expensive for rich women, kinda painfully expensive for middle class women, and subsidized for poor women.  But with a strict quota of only one abortion a year, to make sure poor women don't get any ideas about being slutty.

      Or maybe, just MAYBE, we can agree that accessible and cheap is the way abortions are supposed to be!  And stop with this nonsense that a cheap abortion makes women sluts.

        that lowt is suggesting that cheap abortions create sluts? I ask because otherwise the argumentative nature of your post makes zero sense. If you do think that is what lowt is saying I think you should reread what lowt wrote because, to quote Inigo Montoya, I don't think it means what you think it means.

        This makes about as much sense as Mike Huckabee on mescaline. - Prodigal 2-6-2008

          I can only go by what was actually said, and what the diary says.

          The diary buys directly into the GOP argument. If cheap abortions don't create slits, then there is no slutshaming. If there is slutshaming, then it does, by definition. If you're offended, I think you're on the wrong side.

          So what do you say, do you accept the right wing premise?  I offer up a full throated defense. Yes, a thousand times yes, abortions should be accessible and cheap for everyone's daughters, everywhere.
