This week Republican Todd Akin trashed U.S. women claiming “legitimate rape” rarely causes pregnancy. He apologized, but one must conclude that this is how he thinks. GOP Senator Rick Santorum would deny women birth control. In preparation for their convention, Republicans are calling for a constitutional amendment outlawing abortion with no exceptions for cases of rape or incest. Our local Republican, Tom McClintock, voted against extending the Violence Against Women Act. The GOP War on Women is real. Whether you vote for Obama or Romney will make no difference in California. But you can vote to cast out the GOP good ol’ boys who pass legislation that would deny our women their freedoms over their own bodies. Vote Tom out and make it a better future for you and your daughters. Ron PAITICH, Auburn
