Gemli: comment on Gail Collins Op-Ed 9/19/2015

Carly Fiorina, whose very presence makes large, thriving companies wither and die, and whose ignorance of politics is her greatest strength, is running for president of the United States. She may not know much, such as whether a video of a fetus has anything to do with Planned Parenthood, but she knows that she is passionate about the right to life. True, she also thinks vaccination is optional, but she is complex. But as long as the fetus is a burden for the woman, she will defend its right to life as an unwanted child, to be raised by a woman who is unready, unwilling or unable to be a mother.

Women who take advantage of Planned Parenthood’s medical services are often poor, so naturally they are in the Republican’s crosshairs. But Republicans are fair. In trying to destroy Obamacare, they’re making it clear that they’re not singling out single mothers. They want all desperate, poor and sick people to suffer.

Republican candidates are competing for the coveted position of being the hardest on women. They want them invaded, probed, and psychologically tormented for daring to exercise their right to an abortion. They are having none of it, not abortion, not contraception, not gay marriage, nothing that involves s-e-x. Their religion tells them that everything below the belt is the devil’s playground. They’re so preoccupied by that region that we need a name for this combination of fundamentalist fervor and fear of the naughty bits. I’m suggesting Evangenitals.
