The sub­ject of women

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Once again in an ed­i­to­rial, this news­pa­per has ex­hib­ited its ut­ter con­tempt for women. In the ex­tended rant against abor­tion, the ed­i­tors not once men­tioned the many le­git­i­mate and of­ten life-threat­en­ing rea­sons that women choose to have an abor­tion. From their sanc­ti­mo­nious perch at the top of the food chain, it seems these white men fail to com­pre­hend their hypocrisy.

For one thing, while be­wail­ing the in­tru­sion of gov­ern­ment into our lives with ever higher taxes and count­less reg­u­la­tions, they’re ea­ger for gov­ern­ment in­tru­sion into women’s uteruses and the sanc­tity of the fam­ily.

For an­other thing, while con­demn­ing abor­tion, it seems they’re the first to protest any sug­ges­tion of sex ed­u­ca­tion or, oh dear, free birth con­trol from places like Planned Par­ent­hood. Per­haps they’ve failed to con­nect the dots be­tween ig­no­rance, lack of birth con­trol, and un­wanted preg­nancy. Well, guys, in ev­ery state that has pro­moted sex ed in schools and dis­tri­bu­tion of birth con­trol, abor­tion rates have dropped dra­mat­i­cally. How amaz­ing.

The only real path for­ward, ac­cord­ing to the un­evolved males among us, is to put women back in the kitchen, bare­foot and preg­nant. All these trou­bles started with giv­ing women the right to vote, and af­ter that, it’s been one abom­i­na­tion af­ter an­other. Equal pay? Equal rights? What hor­ror.

As lit­tle wannabe gods, judg­ment is theirs.

Fun­da­men­tally, the ar­gu­ment against abor­tion rights is that women just aren’t smart enough or de­cent enough to be trusted with de­ci­sions about their own bod­ies. Bring in the men! DENELE CAMP­BELL West Fork
