While Bill O'Reilly's satirical doppelganger, Stephen Colbert, doesn't see color, the real Bill O'Reilly doesn't see the real war on women's reproductive rights that is being waged as we speak. As Bill needs to be educated on this matter, I submit, for his edification, the Florida ballot issue Amendment Number 6.
This measure would prohibit public funding for abortion except in very narrow circumstances of rape, incest, or life of mother. It bans private insurance of public employees, even though they are paying for the coverage, from covering abortions except in the situations mentioned above. In other words, if a woman, in her first trimester, is suffering from cancer, she would have to pay out-of-pocket if she wished to terminate the pregnancy. Young adults, on their public employee parents' policies, would be subject to the same restrictions. The measure effectively destroys privacy rights for women.
Is there a "war on women?" You betcha. Vote No on Florida Amendment 6 to stand with women and to stand up to Bill O'Reilly!

Does this sound like a âwar on womenâ to you?
Are these women victims?
Or, is truth the victim?
Compare Romneyâs administration to the Obama Administrationâs treatment of women:
âThe White House Boysâ Club: President Obama Has a Woman Problemâ
Donât be fooled by Obamaâs beautiful, lofty oratory.
And remember, Republicans have acknowledged there is a war on women- But only when they can lie about who’s waging it.
