Mike Huckabee was right about the Democrat Party’s overactive libido

Here is how NBC’s Kasie Hunt described comments made by former Gov. Mike Huckabee at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting on January 23:

Women I know are outraged that the Democrats think that women are nothing more than helpless and hopeless creatures whose only goal in life is to have the government provide for them birth control medication. Women I know are smart, educated, intelligent, capable of doing anything that anyone else can do.

Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women. That’s not a war on them. It’s a war for them. And if the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control, because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it. Let us take that discussion all across America, because women are far more than Democrats have played them to be. And women across America need to stand up and say, “Enough of that nonsense.”

Huckabee was dispensing obvious truth, that women are far more than the simple sexual objects Democrats view them as. He was also saying in so many words that women have a lot more important concerns than government handouts of contraceptives.

But liberaland has piled on, including Cosmo

S. E. Cupp called it on CNN’s The Situation Room:

I’ve got to say that I feel like I’m in the Twilight ZoneIt is so 100% clear that Mike Huckabee was talking about the Democratic treatment towards women and not his own feeling or the Republican Party’s feeling about women.

I have never seen lazier, more intellectually dishonest analysis of this moment than I have today. I mean, it’s shocking to me. It is clear what Mike Huckabee’s intention was here.

Show me a poll where “government subsidy of contraceptives” ranks as even a blip as a priority of America’s women, particularly the poor. How insulting.

d2f665082161Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards claims Republicans want to take us back to the 1950s.

If that’s so, Democrats want to take us back to the 1800s, when women were diagnosed with hysteria if their libidos weren’t satisfied, when a woman’s unquenched sexual appetite was the cause of all her problems.

No, what women want from the government is what men want – safe neighborhoods, good schools, low unemployment, national security, and a strong economy.

But Mike Huckabee was right. Democrats instead give them contraceptives and abortion – so they won’t become hysterical about all the failings of the political party currently running the country?

Cuckoo for contraceptives

On September 21 the Huffington Post published results of a new survey on contraceptive use. The most provocative find:

5. The pill is the most popular form of contraception. About 15 percent of women reported using the pill in the last 30 days, compared to 8 percent who said they used a male condom.

Note the spin. “The most popular for of contraception” is used only 15% of the time.

Another interesting find:

4. Forty-three percent of women who had been pregnant previously, had experienced at least one unintended pregnancy. Of those 43 percent, 50 percent said that their unintended pregnancies had occurred as the result of failed birth control (i.e. a ripped condom or not taking their birth control pill regularly).

In other words, contraceptives used in real time (not theory) have a 50% failure rate.

Aside from the fact the female public doesn’t like the Pill, and aside from the fact contraceptives have a dismal success rate, feminists and the abortion industry are currently pushing for pandemic distribution of free hormonal contraceptives because, they say,  it’s what women want and need to prevent unintended pregnancy.

Neither liberals nor the mainstream media nor the government stop to analyze the reality that contraceptives fail the hype. Instead we get this:

Bear in mind, the morning-after pill contains 2-10 times the dosage of female hormones as the birth control pill, and there are no long-term studies on the harm to adolescent girls, particularly with repeated use.

Liberals are all-organic, all-green, and anti-Big Pharma – except when it comes to hormonal contraception, in which case they turn a blind eye.

This is because the alternative to pushing contraceptives on the public is unthinkable, for three reasons:

  1. The Pill was the cornerstone is the 1960s sexual revolution, and the hippies are now in charge of the country.
  2. The Pill is lucrative, as is the back-up plan, abortion.
  3. The only foolproof way to prevent pregnancy and STDs is by maintaining abstinence until marriage and then being faithful, a message that would be to admit Christian prudes were right and would also stop the gravy train.

Step back. In plain English hormonal contraceptives (which include the Pill, shots, and implants) contain artificial steroids taken on a daily basis over the course of decades that chemically alter a woman’s normal monthly menstrual cycle by overriding messages sent by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, both located in the brain.

Does that sound healthy? We now know it’s not. Hormonal contraceptives increase a woman’s risk of fibroid tumors, ovarian cysts, heart attacks, strokes, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, infertility, liver tumors, yeast infections, and more; and they decrease her bone density and libido, and more. (And a new study shows the Pill increases the risk of staph infections, aside from the fact it offers no protection against STDs.)

Will we ever learn? It’s possible. It just depends on whether or not we’re sailing on the Contraceptive Titanic.

Salon: The Pill kills libido

Interesting article in Salon today. That which revolutionized wanton sex makes women not want wanton sex – while bringing a host of health plagues (though not mentioned in this article is breast cancer).
But Pandora’s Box has been opened. Women and/or their partners have grown accustomed to the freedom of the wanton sex ushered in by the Pill; they’ve just stopped protecting against pregnancy because the protection is so unpleasant.

Following are excerpts from the Salon piece. Many of the comments corroborate her experience:

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the pill’s introduction in the United States….
I hate the pill. Hormonal contraception, which covers birth control pills and nearly every other highly effective method on the market, murders my libido….Although a libido-destroying pill does wonders to lower your pregnancy risk, it’s also done a number on my relationships, self-esteem and emotional well-being….

Times Online: “I’ve lost interest in sex after an abortion”

I’ve often said the British press is far more honest and open about abortion than the American press. Here’s another example. A reader wrote this question to doctors at The Times Online, May 2:

I had an abortion recently, and though my boyfriend and I agreed it was the right thing to do, I feel guilty and I’ve gone off sex. Will these feelings pass?

An excerpt from the response, which is worth reading in its entirety:
no sex female.jpg

Lack of interest in sex after an abortion is so common that it can almost be said to be expected. Before long your libido is likely to have returned, but both you and your partner have to bear in mind that even now having an abortion is a huge event in anyone’s life. It is possible, but by no means inevitable, that the changes this will have wrought in the way you feel about a future together may have irretrievably undermined your relationship. If this happens, neither of you should assume blame or feel guilty….
