Among the chatter about the possible illegal activities of the Trump administration there is of course talk of impeachment. Some shake their heads and say no, President Mike Pence would be worse for reproductive rights. To this I say we already have Mike Pence’s misogynistic-fact-absent-forced-birth agenda in the White House. Nothing will get worse because we are all already on the crazy train to the Republic of Gilead and Pence is the conductor. Trump is just hanging out in the bar car.
Trump doesn’t care about abortion or contraception or women. For all his pussy-grabbing bravado I suspect he is a prude with a medically illiterate view of the female reproductive tract. Just like he isn’t going to push a baby in a stroller around Central Park he isn’t going to ask what his sexual partner uses for contraception. That’s her job. Honestly, I’d be surprised if Donald Trump knows that women have three orifices below the umbilicus. Blood comes out of the “wherever” in the Trumpified genital tract. He is of the don’t tell me about it just take care of that shit ilk. I don’t believe for a minute that Trump is against birth control otherwise there would have been lots of paternity suits against him. This is a man who has bragged about sexual conquests. Trump didn’t meet any of his three wives at church and be most certainly doesn’t call Melania Mother.
Trump made it perfectly clear when he ran for President that he was going to hand over the female reproductive tract to the dystopian crackpots at the Susan B. Anthony Society once elected. He even provided a letter saying he would do just that.
Everything in this letter is a Pence self-pleasure fest. You have all heard Trump speak, he did not write this letter. Pence has been dreaming of a letter such as this since he was a teen. All of Trump’s appointments and rulings or ideas that are in any way related to reproductive health are as anti-woman as they get because they are Pencian.
Trump appointed a leading anti reproductive rights extremist, Charmain Yoest, to Health and Human Services.
He’s trying to defund Planned Parenthood.
He appointed Tom Price, who doesn’t believe one woman has ever had access issues with birth control and is vehemently anti-choice.
It’s hard to believe any of these would have happened without Pence as his Wormtongue. Not one of these terrible, horrible, anti-reproductive rights legislative ideas sprang from Trump’s brain. This is a Pence agenda.
Mike Pence is a terrible person. I despise him probably more than I despise Trump. True fanatics are frightening. It is possible Mike Pence could be worse in other ways, but regarding reproductive rights the fanatics are already running the circus and Trump’s participation is simply for show.
As far as reproductive rights are concerned we already have President Pence in power.
