Despite it having been decided among the Very Serious People™, which includes those august fathers of reasonable discourse otherwise known as the editorial board of the Denver Post, that this whole “war on women” is naught but a bunch of hysterical frippery:

And contrary to (Mark) Udall’s tedious refrain, (Cory) Gardner’s election would pose no threat to abortion rights.

A state legislator in Missouri introduced a bill requiring a woman to get signed and notarized permission from the man who impregnated her before she can have an abortion.

Rick Brattin, a state representative from outside Kansas City, filed the bill on December 3 for next year’s legislative session. The proposed measure reads, “No abortion shall be performed or induced unless and until the father of the unborn child provides written, notarized consent to the abortion.”

The bill contains exceptions for women who become pregnant as the result of rape or incest—but there are caveats.

“Just like any rape, you have to report it, and you have to prove it,” Brattin tells Mother Jones. “So you couldn’t just go and say, ‘Oh yeah, I was raped’ and get an abortion. It has to be a legitimate rape.”

Good thing we were just imagining that war on us, amirite? Also, too, nice touch with the “legitimate rape”, Rick Brattin, considering how you are from Missouri, which is where Todd Akin uh, practiced his love on women across that land.

And thanks to the Very Serious People™, for declaring that the “war on women” is a joke. Thanks to you, the very real war on women has gained steam. Good job.

    Ok I really try to enjoy this perspective if life. But if a child is born the father is responsible under threat of losing his freedom, for 18-21 yrs… Yet he has zero responsibility or opinion as to whether the kid us allowed to live? Or is it “I can’t party, make bad decisions, have casual sex for 9 whole months, unless I kill my child without telling his / her father? I just don’t get that kind of narcissism and stinginess. Yea there’s a war alright, and it’s not on women, it’s on the tiniest,most vulnerable kids on earth and their dads. Sorry you won’t have to listen to a different opinion anymore. I’m done. Rejoice. Pat each other on the back
