In Light Of McCain’s VP Pick, How McCain Is Against Women And Their Rights

I’ve been compiling for quite some time a list of ways McCain has voted and things McCain has said that are against women and their rights. Seeing McCain picked a younger woman to be his Vice President, which is obviously a move of desperation to get the PUMA vote and to make himself look younger, I’ve decided to unleash this masterpiece now.

And all the time I thought McCain was against affirmative action…

1986: McCain made a very offensive joke about a woman getting raped by an ape then asking “Where is that marvelous ape” after she came to.

1990: McCain voted against Title X planning programs (such as Planned Parenthood) which provide low income and uninsured women and families with health care services. Also, such programs provide breast and cervical cancer screenings for women in need.

2003: McCain voted against an amendment that would have required insurance coverage of prescription birth control.

2005: McCain voted against spending $100 million to expand access to preventive health care services that would reduce teen pregnancies and the number of abortions.

2005: McCain voted against legislation that would overturn the “global gag rule”. This rule which bars foreign organizations from receiving US assistance if the organization provides abortion or advocates pro-choice laws in their country.

2007: McCain: “Ahhh. I think I support the president’s policy.” (On grants for sexual education with funding for contraceptives. Bush’s policy is abstinence.)

2008: McCain: “I certainly don’t want to discuss that issue.” (On why insurance companies cover Viagra and not birth control. So what is it, Mr McCain?)

2008: McCain believes Roe vs Wade is flawed and should be overturned, having once said in 1999 “Certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations.”

2008: McCain skipped a vote for the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act which sought equal pay for women. He claims he would have voted against it because it would lead to more lawsuits.
