There's only one logical explanation for this: Mrs. Gates is a woman-hating, bible-thumping, far-right nut-job who wants to have absolute control over what women can and cannot do with their own bodies and who longs for the days when women won't be allowed out of the kitchen.

Which kind of feminists? The wacky ones that think they should be allowed to kill their own children if they wish? In ancient Rome, only the dad could kill his kids at birth, but now only mom can! How about parents in general not kill their offspring!!!

She's too measured in criticizing the catholic wingnuts who prolong the mess:


[I]n the United States and around the world the emotional and personal debate about abortion is threatening to get in the way of the lifesaving consensus regarding basic family planning,” she said.

“I understand why there is so much emotion, but conflating these issues will slow down progress for tens of millions of women.”

Not only will it do that, but it will cause more abortions, too.

Would you care to repeat that with actual total fertility rate statistics for religious and racial groups?

I am both pro-life and anti-choice, as any sane, reasonable, and experienced citizen would be.

You need stats on religions that are against artificial contraception? What about racial groups?

Impossible. You can't be reasonable if you're an extremist. You're an experienced wingnut.
