A Quick Guide to the GOPs War on Women (updated with 'Legitimate Rape')

What is the GOP ‘War on Women’? The ‘War on Women’ is an unprecedented attempt by the Republican Party to roll-back women’s rights on a host of critical issues. These issues include equal pay, intrusive medical procedures, access to women’s health resources, abortion access, and laws protecting women from violence…and the list goes on.

NEW ENTRY – No Abortions for ‘Legitimate Rape’ Victims or Incest Victims over the age of 18 - We could not make this up. The poster child of the Tea Party Paul Ryan worked closely with Todd Akin to define different types of rape – based on the willingness of the victim.

#1 – Mandatory Transvaginal Ultrasounds
#2 – Equal Pay for Women Bill blocked by GOP Minority in Senate
#3 – BLUNT Amendment
#4 – Defunding Planned Parenthood
#5 – Women who Use Contraception are Sluts, Whores
#6 – Anti-Abortion Bills
#7 – Personhood Laws
#8 – Opposition to the renewal of the Violence Against Women Bill
#9 – Women’s Health Insurance Costs
