Hey Whoopi and Barbara -- when can I come on The View and give THIS view?

Quite frankly, Cecile, (to use a phrase you love) I've had quite enough, more than enough, of the vulgar caricature of the American woman being presented by you and Planned Parenthood and all your liberal feminist friends, Obama and his administration, and the manipulative, cowardly, dishonest institution we used to call the Press.  Don't you dare tell me that my freedom and my happiness depends on the "right" to execute my own children.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Catholic Online) -   Cecile Richards has a new gig.  At least until November 6.  She's left her day job in order to campaign full-time for her BFF, Barack Obama, saying that all our daughters' futures are at stake.  (Just curious, Cecile: does that include our daughters in the womb, too?  You know, the ones who are often killed just because they're girls?)

Planned Parenthood pays her an annual salary of over $400k, but of course, PP simply could not survive and continue to do all their benevolent work of providing women with comprehensive health care without the generous funding they get from taxpayers, to the tune of $550 million dollars a year.  (Wherever would they get revenue from if not the Federal government?) 

Once more, for the record:  Planned Parenthood does not now, nor have they ever provided a single woman with a mammogram.  There's not one PP clinic in the country that can give a woman a mammogram.  Yet once again, Barack Obama perpetuated that myth during the last debate because it serves the false narrative that women everywhere will die without PP.  And of course, no one in the Obama-media bothered to tell the truth.

Planned Parenthood is not a network of health care clinics serving women out of the goodness of their hearts.  It is the world's largest abortion mill.  They exist to perform abortions, period.  If tomorrow they could no longer kill babies, then tomorrow they would close their doors.  Does anyone seriously believe otherwise?  There are no million dollar profits in adoption referrals, or Pap smears, or manual breast exams, or STD testing, or condom distribution.  But there are billions of dollars to be made from terminating babies.

Every dollar they make is stained with innocent blood.  Every dollar of ours that they take is also blood-stained.  No matter what they claim they use it for, it helps them kill babies because that's where this so-called non-profit's profits come from.

Now Cecile is scared witless that Romney will defeat her better half, so she has put aside her other job in order to concentrate on her real job -- protecting Planned Parenthood's federal gravy train and perhaps her own cushy salary.  Doesn't anyone else find it slimy that the CEO of a industry that gets $550 million dollars of federal tax dollars every year is now openly campaigning for the Presidential candidate who has used every ounce of his own political capital to protect her organization from losing that federal funding?

For now til the election, Cecile will rant about the supposed misogynist policies of Romney/Ryan and how they want to take women backward 40 years and how they want to deny women basic healthcare, and blah, blah, blah.  She will paint another layer on the portrait of the American woman that she and Obama and every other pro-abortion Democrat has been holding up as the only true picture of women today.

Quite frankly, Cecile, (to use a phrase you love) I've had quite enough, more than enough, of the vulgar caricature of the American woman being presented by you and Planned Parenthood and all your liberal feminist friends, Obama and his administration, and the manipulative, cowardly, dishonest institution we used to call the Press.

FOR THE RECORD:  First, don't any of you dare reduce me to my "lady parts."  You wanna talk about sexist remarks?  That one takes the cake, and the irony is that "women" are the ones spouting it.  So much for the value of our intellect, ladies.  All that really matters is our vagina.

Speaking of vaginas, stop dressing up in vagina costumes already.  It's gross and childish and makes you look like a complete idiot.  You're only furthering the idea that women are nothing more than vaginas.  Grow up.

For heaven's sake, stop making political ads with naked women holding signs in front of their bodies.  Again, you're the ones portraying women as merely physical, sexual objects reduced to reproductive organs, and you're blaming Republican MEN for this?

Above all, don't you dare -- and I mean don't you DARE -- tell me that my freedom, my success, my autonomy, my happiness, my life is found in executing my own children.  Don't you dare tell me that I can only be who I'm meant to be and have the life I want if I literally tear my babies into pieces.  Terminating my children is not the mark of my liberation.  Do not tell me that the womb must also be a child's death chamber in order for me to be wholly free.  Don't you dare insist that women are only empowered when they can snuff out the lives of their own sons and daughters.

Abortion is NOT health care!  No procedure that intentionally leaves a human being dead can be considered health care.  Abortion is the biggest lie, the greatest scam ever foisted on women.

Hollywood celebrities like Eva Longoria, Meryl Streep, Scarlett Johansson, Kyra Sedwick, and so many others are busy demeaning women -- like me -- who aren't towing the liberal, pro-abortion feminist line with the requisite enthusiasm (or any enthusiasm at all, thank you).  We're stupid not to vote for Obama.  We're hurting women by voting for Romney/Ryan.  They publish crude tweets calling us disgusting, belittling names.  Refusal to embrace abortion and contraception cannot be tolerated, so they resort to mean-girl tactics.

Stop telling the world that the normal biological functions of the female body require carcinogenic hormonal steroids in order to be managed effectively.  Fertility is not a disease!  Pregnancy is not an illness or a malfunction!  I do not need nor do I desire your lousy, cancer-causing contraceptive drugs, and I refuse to pay for yours.  You have no right to demand that I or anyone else subsidize your sexual habits.  You want freedom?  Fine -- pay for your own contraception if you can't live without it.  Don't you dare demand that I do, or that my Church bow to your petulant demands.  You're the ones screaming for the government to get out of your bedrooms -- you can't have it both ways.

And by the way, pay attention to the lunacy of your own hypocrisy:  you want environmental purity for the sake of protecting the planet, but you're dogmatically insistent on polluting the female body with pills and devices that cause all sorts of health problems and even permanent physical damage.  I guess the only environment you can still poison with impunity these days is a woman's body.

Next, your shrill and whiny cry of a "war on women" here in America is just about the stupidest, most vain and arrogant display of "victimhood" I've ever seen.  Apparently, none of you have paid any attention to what goes on in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and even right here in America at the hands of Islamic men.  You women are college-educated and degree'd; you're CEO's; you're lawyers and doctors and engineers; you're professors and diplomats and Governors and Senators.  You're Heads of State and international political players.  You can be and do anything you want.  You're FREE.  And you're seriously going to say you're under assault because Americans don't want to be forced to pay for your birth control and abortions??

You're not targeted for assassination in the name of "honor", are you?  You're not whipped for talking to a man, are you?  You're not denied education or voting rights or independence because you're considered less valuable than the family dog, are you?  You're not kept illiterate or shot in the head for daring to say that you deserve to know how to read a book, are you?

Tell your tale of woe to Malala Yousufzai.  I dare you. Then for pity's sake, hush up and grow up.  There is a real war on women happening in the world, but it ain't here in America.  You insult and mock the very real suffering of girls and women who truly are under assault by oppressive, inhumane regimes and fanatics.

And don't you dare compare the Catholic Church to the Taliban.  I challenge every one of you to find another entity on the planet that does more every single day to feed, clothe, shelter, give medical care and assistance, to educate, to rescue from harm, to serve the poor and underprivileged, and to fight for the human rights of women and children than the Catholic Church and all Her faithful.  Your pathetic rants about the so-called oppression of the Church reveal your dishonesty and ulterior motives.  The Church proclaims the dignity and humanity of ALL women, including girls in the womb.  You cannot say as much.

Here's a new portrait for you:  I am an American woman well-informed on the issues and I vote.  I believe in the sanctity of all human life and I recognize the humanity of the child in the womb.  I utterly reject any so-called "right" to kill that child.  I reject your harmful contraceptive drugs and devices and I refuse to consider my fertility a disease, nor will I demand anyone else pay for "birth control." 

I understand that freedom requires personal responsibility, not taxpayer subsidy.  I'm smart enough to see through the lies and euphemisms and sophistry of the abortion industry and all its political operatives (like you, Cecile, and you, Obama).  I know who the champions of women's rights truly are, and you are not them.  I know what freedom really means and what it really costs, and what you're selling is slavery and death.  No thanks.  You do not speak for me.

P.S.  Hey Whoopi, Joy, and Barbara:  I'm waiting for my invitation to come on "The View" and present this view.  Waiting...

Image of Archbishop Charles J. Chaput is one of the preeminent Churchmen of our age. He offers a prophetic voice for this important time.

Bridget of Sweden, Marriage and Family, and the Need for Canonized Married Saints Watch

Image of St Bridget of Sweden, her husband Ulf, and all the modern Popes call Christian married couples to become the 'Sweet and Smiling Face of the Church' in this age.

That is precisely because this is an age where faithful marriage is now counter-cultural. We need examples of men and women who not only embraced it in Christ, but lived it as a but a path to heroic virtue.
