Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn said Friday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that the Republican Party is waging a “war on sex” to control women with state abortion bans.
Corn said, “What we’re seeing with the Republican Party is as crazy as we thought, it gets even crazier after January 6, and they were talking about abortion bans, okay, but with exceptions. Now they don’t want exceptions, and now they even want to deny what happens as a result of these bans. I mean, it’s about theocracy, theology. It’s about controlling women. It is a war against women. It’s a war on sex. ”
He added: “I think that’s how they see it. In a war, there are victims, and a victim can be a 10-year-old girl who has to be forced to give birth. They don’t flex here. They don’t say, oh, we have to rethink that these incidents actually happened. They want to deny these incidents because they take away some of the moral basis of these laws that they enthusiastically support, so they can’t allow them to be in such a case, and they – they want, the Soviet way , photoshop the image out of the debate. It’s just a sign of the far extreme they’ve gone on a long journey of about 70 years now.
