Yes, there really is a war on women, says majority of women polled

Conservatives say that there is no war on women in the United States — but as commentator David Pakman points out, a significant majority of women disagree.

About one third of American women believe that there is a broad effort underway to limit their access to reproductive services, including contraception, family planning and abortion according to a poll released by the Kaiser Family Foundation.  The poll, however, indicated that reproductive rights are not a hot button issue in terms of the presidential election.

As Pakman points out, 31 percent of women say that reproductive rights are being limited as part of a broad effort, but in looking at the big picture, 76 percent say that reproductive rights are being curtailed in a wide scale effort or to some extent level.

    With all the anti-women's health things, attempting to control women, I don't see how anyone can deny there is a war on women, but obviously there are women who seem to be blind from it all.  I often wonder how men would feel if women ran the country and we said they could not get Viagra so they can get an erection that, in some case, esp with an adverse reaction could last 16 plus hours, causing them problems.
