Letter: Where’s the war on women?Because I wasn’t in Hudson last week to join “several anti-abortion protesters” or I would have been there too, I just want to ask if the women’s issues “protesters” do this because they haven’t got anything better to do with their lives?

Because I wasn’t in Hudson last week to join “several anti-abortion protesters” or I would have been there too, I just want to ask if the women’s issues “protesters” do this because they haven’t got anything better to do with their lives?
The article stated that the “protest signs” covered a gamut of issues, including “reproductive rights,” (code words for abortion), and I have to ask, Do you mean that killing over 50 million unborn children through abortion over the last 30-plus years isn’t enough?”
They apparently were also protesting “birth control?” Who in America nowadays can’t get birth control if they want it? Oh – you mean they want someone else to pay for it?
To see signs that yell, “Stop The War On Women” I want to scream – “go to some of the countries where I’ve done mission work, like Honduras or Romania, Panama or Slovakia, Ecuador or Jamaica where women have few – if any – “rights” (or food, or medical care or education) then tell me about “the war on women.” Or go to China, where women are picked up by the government and suffer forced abortions, or how about India, Iraq or Pakistan where women are stoned to death if they are caught in adultery.
To accuse Gov. Walker of “attacking Wisconsin families” would be laughable if it weren’t so stupid! Wisconsin families have benefitted from Gov. Walker’s efforts in more ways then there is room to list but just a few are: the signing of SB306, which helps ensure that women are not coerced into an abortion; he signed SB237 which restores to local school districts the control they need to determine the kind of sex ed program they believe is best for their children!
These are things that hurt women and families?
What about the fact that the number of businesses created in the first quarter of the year are up l2.2 percent (The Business Journal) or the fact that 94 percent of Wisconsin job creators feel Wisconsin is now heading in the right direction (Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce) or how about the FACT that our property taxes are down for the first time in 12 years (Biz Times). Do you care that 15,600 new jobs have been added in Wisconsin since Jan 1? Or doesn’t that count?
I didn’t see people protesting a “war on women,” I saw l00 or so selfish, self-centered people who care about their own petty grievances!
