We should be very concerned about the “war on women” rhetoric. It is divisive at it’s core. The premise is that we are trying to discriminate against women. That just isn’t true.
It is clear that many women don’t get the opportunity to even be born. That is a moral issue to grapple with. How can we support that?
Retired neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson ripped into the notion that there is a “war on women” in America when he declared, in a rousing address at a campaign event in Little Rock, Arkansas Thursday, there is no “war on women” but there may be one on “what’s inside of women.”
“There are those who are always trying to stir up trouble. They are always trying to drive wedges between us and you know they tell you that there is a war on women. There is no war on women, there may be a war on what’s inside of women but there is no war on women in this country,” said Carson in a clip from the event posted on YouTube.
