Dear Editor:

What is all this buzz about the Republican war on women? Is it just a political stunt to gain the female vote?

Just recently there was the"Not My Boss' Business Act" put forth in the Senate attempting hold a vote on nullifying the the Supreme Court's majority decision in favor of Hobby Lobby to decide on “no-choice” as opposed to “pro-choice” concerning a woman's right to make decisions concerning her own body.

The Supreme Court's decision was made by five conservative men and the dissenting votes on women's rights by three woman and one man. Hardly shocking.
The Senate vote was equally predictable.

Fifty percent of the Republican female senators (both of them) voted against Hobby Lobby. They were Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). All 43 of the Republican male Senators voted against women's rights with the exception of Mark Kirk (R -IL). I hope these man's-mans don't ostracize him as a girly boy. Maybe he even hates war. Oh my.

As expected all 16 Democratic female Senators together with all 37 male Senators voted in favor of the women. (Brian Schatz of Hawaii did not vote.)
 What is all this buzz about the Republican war on women?
