← The Invisible Burka: Why women need secularism

jhuxley's Avatar Jump to comment 7 by jhuxley

By one analysis women are the most important bloc for this upcoming election, and yet it seems that the Republicans are proactively seeking to remain unelectable by courting the theocrats that are seeking to persecute this very demographic. The more the religious push their agenda into policy, the greater the alienation of moderates and reasonable people--and these are the folks that decide election outcomes. I wouldn't be surprised if this intrusion into women's reproductive healthcare and erosion of their civil rights proves to be a defining moment in the GOP's failure this coming November.
