Women have come a long way since women’s suffrage and the ratification of the nineteenth amendment in 1920. The emergence of the women’s voice, women’s ingenuity and women’s intellect has been chiseled from the stoic stones of yesterday’s heroines. The evolution of liberty has been an interesting trajectory and the path varied for many Americans. Yet, upon the platform of our founding fathers’ ideas, based on Mosaic Laws and Christian principles, liberty has continued to grow, adapt and advance.
Women, who were once pigeon-holed and restricted by men who had the upper hand in society, are now a challenge in the colleges, a match in the marketplace, and a force with which to be reckoned in the culture. Yet, the prodigy of the suffragettes, who banded together to parade across the Brooklyn Bridge with baby strollers, are now facing a new type of attack. Hysteria versus reason kindled by the liberal, leftist phony war on women.
A perfectly reasonable and rational resistance of the Catholic Church against a government mandate that infringes upon their religious freedom, a basic American tenant, has been hi-jacked by the liberals and twisted into a lie. A radical violation of the First Amendment has taken place and the Obama Administration and the liberals, realizing their mistake, quickly did what they do best – spin. Desperate to win the women’s vote in 2012, they created a fictitious Republican War on Women.
This message has been manipulated, massaged and manufactured through the media. Though it feels like old news, it is not, and it will be the signature song of the Democratic Party.
The irrelevancy and inaccuracy of the Republican War on Women is frightening. The overlay of the real issue is foreboding. The writing is on the wall is foretelling. Look away, while we impede your fundamental bill of rights.
Enter Moveon.org to propagate this phony war on women message. The irony is that Moveon.org was launched during the Clinton Administration to “move away” from Clinton’s misbehavior with women. Are they really looking after the best interest of women?
Now, Moveon.org is pitting women against women in a phony debate. There is no war on women. There is no return to the dark ages. Women are not being denied birth control. This isn’t even a birth control issue. The issue is one of Obama’s political ideology – government intervention – and they are preying on women’s vulnerabilities to achieve their goal.
Moveon.org and the Obama campaign are hoping that women across America can be
fooled by this sham. However, women are smarter than this. Any woman who believes this phony war on women simply wants to perpetuate the lie and wants Obama re-elected – at any cost.
The “move on” tactic, the Republican War on Women, is designed to move attention away from President Obama’s real failings. Obama cannot win with jobs and women. Obama cannot win with the economy and women. Obama cannot win with fuel prices and women. He cannot even win with Obamacare and women and Obama needs women.
Yet, women are smart. Women are intuitive. Women know that they, their husbands and their children are dealing with unemployment. Women know they are choosing between fuel and food.
Women know that Obama has stifled the economy, putting his ideologies above the best interests of the people.
Women know they need electricity. Women know they are curtailed as business owners. Women know the dangers of the devastating debt. Women know that our national security is being compromised. Women know that government run health care will be a disaster, already feeling the impact on veterans.
Women know that Constitutional laws are being violated. Women know their liberty is being threatened. Women know their children face a diminished America if they do not act.
Women are worried. Women know. Women are smart.
Moveon.org move over. Women can always smell a phony. Women are smarter than this.

During this election year, when it is imperative that conservatives garner every vote from Obama, it seems prudent to step back and access the mixed message conservatives serve to women in the media.
Conservatives struggle with ideals of limited government, moral rectitude, and pro-life missions. They want both sides of the argument to be their victory and yet, it cannot be. There is a dichotomy in the works, a clash of ideals.
Even though statistics prove that social issues win elections for conservatives, the party of “father knows best” still needs to bridge the gender gap to win in 2012. This is proving to be complex. The pressing issue is the pro-life stance and the single mother taboo.
How can one simultaneously be pro-life and support single mothers while appeasing the principles of the party? Single mothers, after all are touted as an irresponsible drag on society both morally and financially.
Herein lies the conundrum. Conservatives who are pro-life seek to show pregnant women the ultra sound of the babies, prodding them to keep the God given miracle, but they do nothing to combat a public relations campaign that condemns the single mothers of these children as Godless and immoral.
They cradle the mother until she cradles the child and then let her walk into the world where she has to hear the bullet fire of grim statistics and sure-fire damnation shouted from none other than – conservatives.
This blatant disregard for the life of the woman who chooses life, and for the life of her child, is duplicitous. Do conservatives not see that they are sending less brave pregnant women and terrified pregnant girls straight to Planned Parenthood for an abortion?
Conservative doublespeak in the media regarding the pro-life stance sends women running to the less judgmental Democratic party. This begs the question, where are the pro-life men and women in the media who should be defending the brave single mothers who choose life?
Though many conservatives work behind the scenes to support these single mothers, in front of the camera they close up like a clam.
This is why so many women choose abortion. They are afraid of the stigma. They hear conservative men and women spouting off statistics about how their children will be strippers, drug addicts and incarcerated and how they, the mothers who birthed the child, are distained by society.
Conservative candidates do occasionally pander to the single mother as heroic but then spout words like “child out of wedlock” and “illegitimate” in the next sentence accompanied by the woes the world has to offer her and her child. They insinuate her immorality as part of “deviant modern times.”
Not every pregnant woman is simply looking for a handout. Not every single mother wants to live off of the government. Not every single mother is amoral and ignorant. Not every single mother seeks a life without the father. Not every single mother is faithless.
Speaking of the father. Where is he? He is relatively blameless in the press – blithely carefree and unscathed.
Are conservatives considering the political ramifications, if not the moral ones? Their message in the media can be summed up as this, “I am pro-life. Abortion is a sin, yet woe to the single mother and her child. She is a modern amoral matriarch and her child’s life is doomed.”
This is the paradox presented to the conservative movement. Morally, how does one support the child yet alienate the mother who supports the child? How does one who cares for life, set that life up to fail from the very beginning?
Politically, the conservative movement cannot win the women’s vote with a message such as this.
For those who are pro-life, the message of hope and emotional support should not stop within the private walls of the shelter. The burden is on the pregnant woman who has to walk out into the world and hold her head high and it is on the child, destined by God to be here, who has to prove his/her condemners wrong.
Like Jesus’ message of love, a language of compassion does not endorse alternative lifestyles. An act of public support simply blesses the “life”, the child conservatives sought to bring to fruition, and the mother with an act of inspiration and hope.
To win elections and to win with life, the pro-life conservatives in the press shouldn’t consistently drop the single mother and her child into a pronounced destiny of despair and ill repute – no matter what the statistics.
If they continue to condemn, then they are promoting pro-life in the womb, but not pro-life in the world.

Today, most Americans think that their rights are given to them by the government and that the government is their pursuit of happiness. The new mantra, instead of Patrick Henry’s “Give me Liberty or Give me Death!” is “Give me Liberty and Give me, Give me!”
It is alarming how many kids, when questioned who gives them their inalienable rights, say, “the government.” It is also surprising how many kids do not know that America is a republic. What is most telling and potentially devastating to liberty, however, is that most kids, when asked what the Constitution is say, “Freedom of speech!”
Of course, the Bill of Rights is a signature piece of the Constitution but its thesis dates back to the days of the Magna Carta. What is genuinely American, and what is specific to maintaining our rights, are the laws set forth in the Articles I-VII of the Constitution. The miraculous accomplishment of our founding fathers is that they encapsulated the American government into a checks and balances system that preserves inherent rights.
