"War on Women" video bitch slaps misogynist Republicans
MoveOn.org's "War on Women" puts the spotlight on sexist comments by prominent Republicans. Since Rush Limbaugh's recent "slut" comment about women on contraceptives (aimed at Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke), most people have a sense of the bigoted statements from Republicans around women's reproductive rights.
But hearing the same comments from a woman's mouth creates a chilling effect.
"A woman impregnated through rape should accept that horrible gift. The gift of human life. Accept what God has given you and make the best of a bad situation," says one women in the video, repeating a quote by Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.
"If we're going to pay for your contraceptives, thus pay for you to have sex, we want to see you post the videos online so we can all watch," says a young woman, channeling Limbaugh.
"If we took away a woman's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about a Democratic government ever again," says another woman, reading a quote from Ann Coulter.
The video ends with a warning that female voters will be punishing the Republican party during the 2012 Elections for their anti-woman stance.
