Trump Controlling Women’s Bodies
Many on the religious right are pro-Trump even though his life is not right religiously.
He’s bragged about enjoying plenty of casual sex. He’s even boasted about sexually assaulting women. And some women have filed lawsuits that sound exactly like the assaults that he has described making. His first wife said he raped her once (later taking back the claim).
Why do so many religious conservatives still back him?
It’s his policies, not his personal behavior, they say: Trump would appoint Supreme Court Justices who would take away women’s reproductive rights.
Let me get this straight. Men like Donald Trump may have sex with women as much as they like, and maybe even rape and assault them. And women must simply suffer the consequences:
- No birth control.
- No Plan B emergency contraception.
- No right to terminate a pregnancy.
It’s all consistent with men controlling women’s bodies, sexually and reproductively.
