Paul ‘I’m gonna put my small govt in your vagina’ Ryan mocks the ‘War on Women’

At a private fundraiser in Naples, Fla., on Thursday, Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan mocked the “War on Women.” We can always expect a Republican candidate to open up to a room full of fundraisers, privately.

According to Shushanna Walshe of ABC News, Ryan told the donors, “Now it’s a war on women; tomorrow it’s going to be a war on left-handed Irishmen or something like that.”

Sure Ryan, there’s no ‘War on Women’….except for the one you started. Rya has been almost solely preoccupied with opposing women’s rights. Ryan’s religiosity — in his mind — is supposed to trump women’s health.

Rep. Paul Ryan has a long anti-choice record from his years in Congress.

* During his time in the House, Rep. Ryan has cast 60 votes on abortion and other reproductive-rights issues. All of these votes were anti-choice.

* He cosponsored “personhood” legislation that is so extreme that, if passed, it would ban abortion care in almost all cases, including rape or incest.

* He cosponsored a measure that would force a woman to undergo an ultrasound before she can receive abortion care, even if her doctor doesn’t recommend it and even if it is against the woman’s will.

* He has repeatedly voted to deny funding to Planned Parenthood.

Rep. Ryan has been outspoken on his anti-choice views:

* He reiterated his opposition to abortion for women who survive rape when he said, “I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the idea that, the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.”

* “I’m as pro-life as a person gets. You’re not going to have a truce. Judges are going to come up. Issues come up, they’re unavoidable, and I’m never going to not vote pro-life.”

* Voted for the notorious Stupak amendment, a proposal to ban abortion coverage to women in state health-insurance exchanges, even those buying health insurance entirely with their own funds.

* Voted for and cosponsored a bill that would: effectively ban abortion coverage in state  health-insurance exchanges; impose tax penalties on small businesses and many individuals who purchase private health plans that include abortion coverage; and aIn some cases, procedural votes are included if they are deemed sufficiently representative of the substantive issue and permanently deny low-income women, civil servants, and military women access to  abortion services, even when their health is at risk.

* Voted for and cosponsored a bill that would effectively ban abortion coverage in state health-insurance exchanges and allow hospitals to refuse to provide emergency abortion care, even when a woman’s life is in danger. The bill also gives states the ability to undermine coverage of many health-related services, such as contraception.

* Voted to criminalize a doctor for failure to determine if the expected sex of the pregnancy is a factor in a woman’s decision to seek abortion care.

* Repeatedly voted to deny women in the military – who defend our freedom overseas –the right to use their own, private funds for abortion care at military hospitals.

* Voted to bar the District of Columbia from using its own local funds to provide abortion services for low-income women.

* Repeatedly voted to deny federal employees the right to choose health insurance that includes abortion coverage.

* Repeatedly voted to block the FDA from using funds for testing, approving, or regulating mifepristone (commonly known as RU 486).

* Repeatedly voted to make it a federal crime for anyone other than a parent – including a grandparent, adult sibling, or religious counselor – to accompany a young woman across state lines for abortion care if the home state parental-involvement mandate has not been met.

* Repeatedly voted to impose a new, impossibly complex national patchwork of parental notification mandates on doctors and young women.

Family Planning 

* Repeatedly voted against international family-planning programs.

* Voted against contraceptive equity for federal employees – a law to ensure that health plans cover birth control equally with other prescription medication.

Women’s Health

* Repeatedly voted to disqualify Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds, which would deny millions of women access to comprehensive reproductive-health care and preventive services.

* Voted for an appropriations bill that defunded Planned Parenthood, eliminated the Title X family-planning program, and reinstated the D.C. abortion ban.

* Voted to block federal funds from being used by teaching health centers for abortion provision or training in abortion care.

In His Own Words

* Rep. Ryan reiterated his opposition to abortion for rape survivors when he said, “I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the idea that, the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.”

* “Mr. Speaker, this is perhaps the worst bill I have seen come to the floor in my 11 years of serving in Congress. And what would make this bill worse, is if we break with the longstanding law of preventing abortions from being funded with taxpayer dollars. For those of us who support the protection of and the sanctity of life, the only vote, the right vote, the vote to keep a clean conscience, is a yes vote for the Stupak amendment.”

* “I’m as pro-life as a person gets. You’re not going to have a truce. Judges are going to come up. Issues come up, they’re unavoidable, and I’m never going to not vote pro-life.”

* “The second time the Court failed in a case regarding the definition of ‘human’ was in Roe v. Wade in 1973, when the Supreme Court made virtually the identical mistake.

Congressman Ryan denies the War on Women, even though he fired the first shot. The man is a liar and wants voters to believe that he didn’t say or vote for all of the aforementioned. It’s clearly a fabrication. What would I know, I’m just a woman — who would never vote for Romney-Ryan. A vote for this anti-woman duo would be akin to beating the shit out of myself.

Paul Ryan is likely well acquainted with this equally ignorant guy.
