    Neither party wants to address abortion and repro rights as a health issue.  When the Democrats ceded the issue to the Republicans, the takeover of the Republicans by the religious right essentially guaranteed that a patriarchal policy with state control of women's wombs would follow.

    It is the dysfunctional 2-party system writ large.  The Republican 'dad' bullies the Democratic 'mom' and she submits like a good fundamentalist wife who is afflicted with learned helplessness.

    The politicians keep this agenda under the radar because they know it wouldn't survive the light of day.  See:  Stupak, Bart
