I looked and looked and couldn't find anywhere to place this. I've posted so many youtubes with American Women standing up for the blatant, fixated, obsessive need some right-wing batshit crazy American men have of systematically stripping women of every small victory they have made over the last 60 years. But this thread is also about the vast population who are impoverished and are made to feel like dogs for a hand up, and for stripping them of their freedoms. These repressive regimes (Obama/Harper et al) who feel threatened by women, pre-emptively I might add, need to be straightened out fast.

Missouri state rep Stacey Newman introduces legislation stating (tongue-in-cheek according to the media) that men receive Vascetomies only if their life depended on it. http://house.mo.gov/billtracking/bills121/biltxt/intro/HB1853I.htm which is similar to Georgia Senator Yasmin Neale's Bill which states - "In determining whether a vasectomy is necessary, no regard shall be made to the desire of a man to father children, his economic situation, his age, the number of children he is currently responsible for, or any danger to his wife or partner in the event a child is conceived," http://www.ajc.com/news/georgia-government/abortion-bill-gaining-momentum-1357611.htmlAccording to the abortion rights group the Guttmacher Institute, a whopping record-breaking 92 new abortion-restricting laws were passed in 2011.

My Senate Bill 307 is all about the love and making sure we look out for men's sexual health."

P.S. I'm starting to think all of these less than human stripping of Women's Rights is to purposely keep them out of the business of Politics, because they might fight back. They might even try to keibosh the MIC, gawd forbid. Altho this thread is in the U.S. let's keep it open for Canada as well, after all we are the NAU now. We have many Gooses and not many Ganders as of yet.
