The war(s) on women

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jul 04, 2014

So I guess all Americans face a choice. If you're not prepared to wage all-out war on women's reproductive powers, you're engaged in a war on women.

By the same logic, if you learn that a certain pesticide prevents trees from bearing fruit, and you urge the government not to subsidize sales of that pesticide, does that mean you're making war on apple trees? 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
