Your post doesn't even make sense. Was your father a liberal or Republican? What is your point? Just because your father (which we don't know if he was liberal/conservative) didn't abuse your mother (Republican) in no way has anything to do with what Republican legislators are doing. Making up bills for women to have to have transvaginal ultrasounds to have an abortion (which is legal, by the way), making up bills (which passed, by the way) that will hurt innocent children and women, trying to keep birth control pills from being covered by insurance while protecting Viagra (which is covered by insurance), calling women who use contraceptives sluts and defending the ones that say it. You need a wake-up call.

Not to mention there are even more stark consequences for women. Domestic partnerships also allow couples to be protected against domestic violence through laws associated with the partnerships. The amendment could allow abusers even more access to their victims and take away any legal rights to fight against these attacks. In an era where women are already subjected to invasive, unnecessary medical procedures as a roadblock to health care they seek, why would anyone want to take away even more dignity and rights from women?
