GOP War on Women, part one

Who hates women?

The war on women isn't just a foul-mouthed boor like Rush Limbaugh calling a college student a slut and a prostitute for  telling Congress that birth control pills have important medical uses.

It isn't just Rick Santorum the Catholic  ranting about the evils of birth control, or Mitt Romney the Mormon declaring that "we'll get rid of Planned Parenthood" or Sarah Palin thinking rape victims should pay for the rape kit used to collect evidence after a rape, or Georgia state representative Terry England comparing women to cows and sows  (who, he says, have no problem delivering dead calves and piglets, so why shouldn't women wait until their dead fetus comes out on its own.)
